    Triple Digit Raincovers.

    They're not worth a shit at keeping the water out, but they sure hold it in...

    $150 for a bang bang is a bargain compared to escorts around here. They are $200 so you saved $50! :clap

    2003 VW Touareg. Whadda POS. Even after it qualified for Lemon Law, piss-poor VW forced it to arbitration...and they lost.

    They had to buy it back.

    A 90-something Ford Taurus. It ate alternators at a rate of one per 8,000 miles.

    Olympia GoreTex overgloves. Whoever sewed the liners into these pieces of crap either had really skinny, short thumbs or they were playing a cruel joke. Impossible to use and worthless.

    First Gear HT Air overpants. The crotch zipper lasted exactly one ride. Maybe the fit there was too snug. :D

    Thor enduro jacket. All but four of the snaps came apart after just two rides rendering it nearly useless.

    Sears Craftsman 3 ton floor jack. Oh, it lifts things fine but when not in use it takes up about 5' of floor space because the handle can't go vertical. One must remove and store the handle elsewhere. Dumb.

    You're not paying them $200 to have sex with you. You're paying them to leave.

    Chatterbox headset extension cables - I've heard so many stories of them being DOA, I'm not sure why I was surprised when mine was too. I think they're at a 50% chance of working right out of the box.

    The biggest POS gloves I have ever tried on. After 2 rides the seam stitching was coming apart and the Velcro catches around the wrist came complete off.

    Who’s got the line on a good pair of durable, lightweight, protective DS gloves?
