    That thing's so long it reminds me of this (watch for the fuselage flex moment):

    Hit the USB adapter with some paint to keep from attracting sticky fingers.....

    Incredibly I saw that B1 land at Edwards that day. Awesome flying. Only a couple a mil damage.

    The whole base turned out to watch.
    It was better than watching the shuttle land which I did twice.

    That crew had a long day, no doubt. IIRC they were based out of Dyess in TX & realized early in flight that the nose gear syst was fucky. Quick consult w Rockwell engineers and they were sent to Edwards. Sometimes it's nice to have a 10 mile long runway 1000 miles away. Incredible airmanship :bow :bow

    Well, all I know is that the F-16C Viper, will be released tomorrow on my DCS flight simulator, so I will have to take a break from flying the FA-18C Hornet and learn a new fighter jet. :pynd

    :hide:hide:hide :rayof



    And the updated trailer for todays release (at 11:00AM CST):

    Took the Frankenbeemer out for a ride through the hills. 70F, clear skies, lots of twisties and little traffic made for just a fabulous ride. Still trying to sort out the suspension settings since adding the DRZ forks.

    That's a sweet looking van but you'll probably want to keep it at least 500 ft from schools and playgrounds

    We're telling you gently that the Candy VanTM needs an 18-foot skidplate from the rear axle to bumper. That thing's departure angle must be 1 degree :lol3

    I’m not sure “Free Candy” on the side of the van will lure any snowflakes but change it to “Free WiFi” and the line will be down the block. LOL!

    Got fed up and finally did something about pretzeling the brake lever every time I crash on the right side.

    Learning to ride might be a better option?

    Seat time, it's all about the seat time!

    Brake snakes are good too. Stops small branches from getting between the brake and case covers.

    Rode the levees (what else do we have:lol3) to Immokalee . We had to turn around at the west end as the gate is closed again at the Rotenberger section. Went north on the Miami canal toward Clewiston west on Rogers Road to Immokalee for lunch at Lozano’s Mexican restaurant. Ended up doing 207 miles. Pics taken at Rogers Rd.
