Hey, if you actually like coffee (drip coffee, black, no sugar), Starbucks is 9/10 the best choice on the road. I don't go in for anything else they make, except maybe a sammich if it is early.
Where I live, I've sorted the independent houses that suck from the ones that don't, but I don't have time for middle aged folks who think they can start a coffee shop because someone told them their folgers was nice one time. They never clean the pots and the coffee has a really good chance of tasting like bitter ass. I'd much rather suck it up and slurp some acceptable corporate coffee and get back on the road.
If you can't taste the difference, I wouldn't bother. I only can because I worked at a local shop for a year or so off and on.
I only wish their espresso was as reliable - most places can't pull decent shots for shit and have to cover them up with chocolate and sugar and crap.
more assless-chaps for the curious
I think it is great that you can make a motorcycle purchase decision using a methodology similar to buying toothpaste. That might of prevented some of the decisions about motorcycles I've made in the past.
But, I just can't do things that way, emotion always comes into play. I need to go to a dealer and look at the bikes.
I'm just shallow enough to admit that emotion, style, etc. all factor into my decisions about motorcycling. Logic is often chucked out the window.
Even if people say "they dont' care about style", in my opinion they've still made a decision about style.
I once wore my Olympia jacket into REI and a sales guys came up to me and said, "man you look like you're from the future!" I don't really want to look like a spaceman, so style does influence my decisions. I don't care how functional or protective some of these motorcycle suits/jackets/pants are, some are just plain ass gaudy.
Motorcycles aren't just "tools" to me. My belt sander is a tool. Motorcycles mean something very different to me.
I live over the bridge in Lambertville and we avoid New Hope like the plague on the weekends. There's some decent roads in Bucks County, but between the traffic and the frequent potholes that will swallow your bike interspersed with the random patches of gravel in turns, I try to stay on my side of the Delaware when I go riding :)
That being said there are some nice bars in town where you can avoid the clubbing/tanning/Jersey Shore wannabe asshats and the HD Biker wanna be assclowns.
Now the posers have more than clothes to be posers with.
Fake kick starter for Hardlys...
$450.00 for a fake kick starter....
What's poser about that? My thumb gets tired from the frequent restarts so I can rev the shit out of it in the parking lot, now I can extend my throttle jockey ways with the use of my foot.
We have a motorcycle clubhouse near here. Mostly wannabe Harley guys, not that it matters. This place has been there for several years now and I pass it on a regular basis. So I would say I have been past 1000 times or so.
Only once have I seen a motorcycle there. Ever. It is actually kind of a joke around here that they don't actually own bikes. Sadly, I really think they don't.
I tell my wife if we were to ride down there they would probably elect me President by virtue of being the only one that has a motorcycle. I am sure seeing my wife riding her own motorcycle would be more than they could take. Literally two bikes in the lot at once...inconceivable!
Trailering your jacket to bike night!
Well this is gonna get the skinny jeans bobber crowd's mousse'd up hair all in a tizzy.
That's a joke isn't it? A fake kick start on a "real" bike?
I think someone is trying to jerk our chain.
You guys assed fer this.....
That would be "NO!" Nobody asked for that. You seeking it out and posting it speaks volumes about you however. :ymca
Don't you know nuthin'?
Infamous record album art from a Van Halen album from "back in the day".....
damn kids nowadays....
now get offa my lawn
No wonder Eddie's in such bad shape, having to look at that every night.
I've tried this about a dozen different ways, I just don't like how soggy the bread gets! So I gave up and now I drink the beer and eat bacon sammiches...
I went to my local Tim Hortons the other day and I had noticed a small group of people outside looking tough wearing the latest tricked out bicycle helmets and winter parkas, it appears this is the local club house for the electric bike gang. maybe they were getting ready to move some of those off shore extension cords and squeeze the business from the Dollar Store across the parking lot. I had heard that when the gather up like that then some serious shit is gonna happen.
Uh... nope. The link is dead- is that the one with the electric starter switch in it, or the one that just looks like a kick starter but doesn't do anything?
Those are great fun when the battery goes dead. "Well, just kick it, dude!"
The one in the link had a starter wire. I'm dumbfounded that's real, that's something you think is cool for a bicycle when your 8.
