    I have enough close encounters on the 950. I'm sure my license wouldn't last a week.

    Found out why my horn didn't work. Hard mud packed between horn contacts inside blinker housing....electrons didn't like it.

    Also in tradition of pre big ride events, my Austrian submersible is tore the fuck apart.

    That type of work is best performed within 24 hours of departure.

    True dat. True dat.

    I need to get my passport. I haven't been down there since before the rules change in 2008(?).

    You're right it is a bit premature...I think I'm going to order some lights, so maybe I'll stat wiring those up the day before I leave.

    So TXjames and I (and Larry till the unfortunate leak) were blowing up Hill, Johnson and Somervell Counties. I hit Bosque and a giant wave of paranoia just slobber-smacked me. Talk about a downer. Let my people go. We shall overcome. Grrrrrr.

    Know when something sounds better in your head than it turns out to be in real life?

    An example of this is cutting up motorcycle tires with an angle grinder:norton


    Not that I would have any actual experience with rubber flying everywhere, sticking to the concrete in big globs, and getting tracked in the house on the bottom of your shoes. No, I wouldn't know anything about that at all:1drink.

    What was the end game? Or what was it supposed to be? In your head?

    throw them out in the trash instead of paying a disposal fee. It was going to save at least 6 or 8 dollars, not counting.....oh, never mind.

    Genius! How is that working out for you?



    BTW. I thought you were working on a re-TIRE-ment business idea. Making sandals. (Jeez. Note to self: Spend less time with Rod.)

    everything smells like I spent the day at a burn out contest. There's rubber everywhere. And I've made exactly one cut on one tire. A trip to the landfill and a disposal fee is in my future.


    Re-TIRE-ment plans, that's just long range pondering, mental masturbation, something to do instead of actually accomplishing something.

    I've tried to hide them in big boxes for my trash pickup but they seem to always find them and pull-em out. Its like they have tire radar or something:huh

    Now usually just take the old tires down to the nearest garage/tire store that has a stack in the back and add to their stack...N/C

    Just leave them scattered around like I do. Think of the children.
