    For some idiots it's all about the win. The game doesn't matter. I'll start sharpening my stick.

    We should convince JJMSP to alter the rule in the central tag game to match the twin cities game - ie you MUST ride to the tag in order to win it.

    Grainboob was just trying to look clever and pretend he knows what a pivot table is.

    Wow, the forum skin suddenly changed on me. Did that happen to anyone else?

    Seems to work faster so that's cool.

    The default skin changed from cRAsH to ADV 2.0 on the site's 10th anniversary, a while back.

    ADV 2.0 has been a little buggy, so they switched the default back to cRAsH. ADV 2.0 is still available, you just have to select it. :thumb

    I just reselected it. But I kind of like Crash now that I've seen it. And it seems to run faster, so I might go with that for a while.

    Is that like what the salad dressing lives on at a supper club?

    Something like that. I think they're actually called lazy bastards or something.

    I was in Kansas City and Lawrence, KS last weekend for the KU Texas game. What a great day. I got a speeding ticket from the local sheriff trying to catch all the alumni coming in from the next county for the game and he grabbed me doing 87 in 70 (Damn you out of state plates), but I saw a ton of bikes out on Sunday was in the 50s there.

    Really getting anxious! Saw this at least he has a cool garage, but then again I am not a mechanic (yet)

    I suppose it's a very arty farty movie and everything, but it is a dingy workshop if you ask me. I like bright and white for workspaces. Sometimes though you just have to make do with what you have. My last shed was far from ideal, and even dirtier - and very definitely a hell of a lot colder - than the one in the movie, but did the job well enough.

    Had to move bikes into the dining room over winter for maintenance though, because the shed was so cold. :vardy

    Dartboard above motorcycle does not seem to be an ideal placement. Wood burning stove in workshop with gasoline.....not ideal either. I'll assume he has no gasoline in the gas tank or stored anywhere.

    Practicality outweighs artiness in workshops, in my humble and unimportant opinion.

    But a healthy dose of pinups on the walls of a shoppe - very necessary. :nod

    I'm not a mechanic either by the way. I don't think I want to be, because then people will expect me to fix their shit.

    My fork springs arrived, and I got the old forks pulled.

    So it may not be riding for pie, but we will have bike and pie day some day soon. :thumb

    That works. Make that buttermilky one, that's a very nice pie.

    And bring beer.

    If I feel enthusiastic enough I'll make a bundt cake.

    Maybe.

    Are we supposed to be replacing a tyre as well or something?

    Yep. Front tire and fork springs/oil. That's it. The springs weren't in stock so they took a bit to arrive, but they are finally here.

    Supposedly direct drop ins, no shimming or spacer cutting or any of that shit.

    None of that is difficult anyway, although to do it right you should have them on the bike and set up the static sag*. That can always be done later to fine tune it.

    EDIT: I notice a document there called "safety and control". I assume you have thrown that away?

    *FURTHER EDIT: I think static sag is something to do with boobs. :dunno



    Dammit. :bluduh


    Now that what is over? I carnt see the video. I only have an 8mm projector to watch the interwebz on. I'm guessing your winter road rally last weekend? How did that go?

    I'm thinking spring anyway.
