    That's what the lady friend does. When I tell just stand up she glares at me and says, "Thanks for telling, I wish I would have known it was just that easy...."

    I thought you were getting a race bike, like a Sherco?

    I like my 79 DT125. It's gutless as hell but fun around town. Pinned everywhere you go just to hit the speed limit.

    Beta/Sherco was a toss up for me bike wise....

    Beta is a growing brand with rider support and a community, a dedicated importer and readily available parts. Sherco is dying in Canada (again) because of importer issues....

    The decision wasn’t tuu hard.....

    Naw.... AWD is way better than 4x4 for driving. 4x4, with a locker, might be better for getting unstuck... AWD > 4x4 with no locker for getting unstuck fer sure.

    4x4 with no locker isn't all that great in the winter. But, if you have half a brain, you prolly won't get stuck and should be able to get up some pretty steep hills. My driveway is pretty nasty and I don't have much trouble getting up it with the non-lockered yota. (I can usually get up it in RWD) With the Subaru, I could drift halfway down the street and then get up that sucker sideways. Or, stop in the steepest part and then just crawl on up from there. No comparison.

    Did something stoopid last night

    Wife and I have had a memory foam mattress for a few yrs now, bought it from a friend that worked at Verlo that was selling these on huge discount. Customizable with different firmness of components. All good, but he moved away and now I cant get what I need to refresh the failing parts, Im thinking the company is outta bizness now anyways. So we decided to add a 3/4" piece of plywood to see if that would remedy the sagging supports underneath the mem foam. It did, but holy fawk balls was it wayyyy tooo firm, neither of us slept for shit all night. Time to rethinks my possibilities agin

    I did find some sleep number air chambers that I think will drop right in the space of the supports, that would solve a multitude of sins. Anyone have any angst against sleep number mattresses before I order up anything ?
