Ever seen Funny Farm lol?
Note to self: when you've bought and deployed a motorcycle lift so that you no longer have to lay on your back to (for example) perform oil changes, if you change your oil while lying on your back next to your bike...which is on the lift, you might be failing to realize the utility of your motorcycle lift.
Avoid this though process:
What do I need a toolbox on this bike for?... I am not going that far anyway and what are the chances something is going to go wrong or get a flat?
Same can be applied to some extra clothing + changing weather.
Shit happens, deal with it.
When you don't shit you have a serious problem.
Or just take a sidecar
Amazing how quick you smell smoke when you have rags near your welding table !
Put a sticker note in my wifes car air filter box that says: "Do not sell my wife another air filter or I will come over and beat you up!"
Get a chain tool.
At least once a year of you commute all weathers you will have to make the choice between seeing where you are going and staying dry.
Note to self: Don't act surprised when it happens again every year for 27 years
When you read something on the interwebz that you can't make any sense of, attribute it as a reference to something written by someone you have on 'ignore' and move on.
If there is no 'ignored' content indicated, move on anyway.
When you decide to cut the hubs out of a set of wheels in order to use them for another set of wheels, remove the tires from the rims first because sometime down the line you might need those DOT tires for an inspection and taking tires off of hubs that have super sharp cut spokes, no rotor or sprocket to brace a tire spoon up against is not just aggravating but dangerous as well.
Couple days ago I learned two things.
One, if you have a live trap with a mouse in it and are releasing it into the trash can, hold the trap low in the can. That way the little bastard can't leap out of the trap, onto your arm and the the rim of the can. He made it to the flowers before I could stomp him.
Two, I can only hold four eggs in one hand for a short time. The dogs were quite pleased.
Drinking soda with the hiccups will not end well.
Finish reading some of the posts and if you are calm then sip your coffee. Don't drink and keep reading at the same time.
Hmmmm? I have been wearing glasses since I was 4yrs old. Never had a helmet that I could not get on/off while wearing my glasses. Ya might wanna rethink how it is done? Even those old FF 'letterbox' helmets went over my aviation glasses just fine/
Different heads for different ... sheds?
Never ever been able to put any of my full-face helmets on while wearing glasses - modular, yes, regular full-face ? Not a chance.
At least not a chance if the helmet fit my head properly.
If you can put on your helmet while wearing glasses, your helmet is too big.
What really sucks is dropping your glasses while taking your helmet on/off. At night, in the rain. Too damn blind to see them on the ground. And having to be stupid careful not to step on them while looking for them. Be very careful. Look like an idiot in the parking lot. Eventually finding them a few feet away after about 10 minutes. Glasses suck. Went and stared at a laser beam, made life better
Yea, there is now way around it, a full face helmet needs glasses off the face for the helmet to go on or off. Maybe if you have some really special glasses, or probably a really poorly fitting helmet there might be a way around it. I've had helmet/glasses combo where the glasses no longer fit my face, they fit the helmet. As the KLR shook at idle the glasses were suspended in space in front of my face, shaking with the helmet.
