    Looks like there is a Merlin on the ramp (farthest to the right) - a rare sight these days. Got some time in one. They sure can be noisy.

    My window is some kind of quiet barrier. I can barely hear when a jet taxis and turns and tests the TR's right at me.

    But there is some kind of Mitsubishi (ME2?) plane that visits daily. And that thing makes a racket. And one of the older small citation jets has an ear piercing whine when it spools up.

    My expertise on jets, as I stated earlier, is very narrow. I know this: If the wings stick straight out, its slow. If they sweep way back, it hauls a$$. And just because it's big, doesn't mean they will buy any fuel. (Tankers) And finally, Lear 25's and 35's land empty! They put my kid through college. :)

    They definitely contributed to the decline! I remember the King Air guys would rub it in sometimes by plugging their ears when the Merlin would taxi up. :lol3 One noise pollutin' machine.

    Likely an MU2. They have Garrett engines, the same manufacturer as the Merlin engines.

    I pulled the double in the ADVRider Tag-o-Rama.

    Scored and placed the Philly tag and the South Jersey tag.

    Dont come close to some of the fantastic backgounds of other posts, but at least we have some new / recent S10 photos:clap

    Mine is in the garage:cry

    We had 9 days straight of cold rain with a day of freezing rain and a day of snow mixed in, then I got a bad cold. Was going to at least commute today, but now the wife is sick so I'm on kid duty. Headed out of town this afternoon. :becca

    Maybe Monday.

    Longest I've gone without riding in 5 years:huh.

    Looking at these pics I have noticed that it seems ALOT of people are changing the windshields to much taller ones. Are you guys really tall or is the buffering that bad?

    As this was just "your" opinion, I have already given it more consideration than it deserves. Thanks for your "valued" input!
