    Yeah, pretty much anything more complicated than a solid piece of metal such as a socket or an extension from Harbor Freight is roughly equivalent to a giant "kick me in the nuts" sign on yer groin.

    The biggest POS ---- a Harbor Fright hydraulic press. I used it a couple of times and it literally blew a seal, spewing staaaaanky hyd. oil all over my shop floor. Whatever they use in it doesn't smell like "normal" hyd. oil.... something like a cross between moldy sox and rancid butter.

    Bike related... probably cheap gloves. The most memorable ones were the blue/white Olympia ones that I had to buy at the track because I FORGOT my nice Held gloves. Instantly down-graded them to street use, and every time my hands sweated, they turned blue. I gave them away.

    engagement ring, was so pissed I told her to keep it. But then again I'm a dumbass.

    Friday I took this smokin' chick out on a date, bill came out to like $150, she can drink like a fish. Was one of the most expensive lays I've ever had, save for the engagement ring. :lol3

    Expensive Touratech $%$^%^ folding gear lever. The folding front bit fell off on the first dirt ride it went on and it chose a particularly steep rocky hill just west of no where to leave me without gear selection. I now boycott Touratech products.

    Tourmaster/Cortech Decker leather pants. Very poor quality stitching. I would not expect these pants to stay together in a crash. Now looking at Vanson pants (should have done that in the first place).

    worst consumer product that I've EVER purchased:
    1999 VW Golf IV

    Friends don't let friends buy Volkswagens.

    Smith goggles. I bought a pair and a couple of extra lenses. Well, the light-sensitive lenses weren't, and the tint on the Sol-X lens actually bleeds off. According to their customer service, these aren't considered defects. Never again, I don't want something so shoddy protecting my eyes.
