    If I can hold on to a spot in this company I'll have over 13 million (conservative estimate) in retirement at 55. ESOP is where it's at.

    Not bad. Dirtbikes will be $50k, and the truck you’ll haul them in will be $200k. :rofl

    Had them on my Wifes Mini Cooper. For your area I bet they would work great. Little bit of snow, like a 1/2”, rendered the car useless. I literally had to let all the air out of the tire to go up a small gravel grade, even then it was sketch. Sidewalls are too stiff for rain/snow. Other than being a firm feeling tire, they worked fairly well at everything else. I had Bridgestones, they wore like iron (little car) and like selling a WRR ,was glad to move onto a far better tire.

    I also had some on a Corvette i briefly owned. Got it in my parents divorce. Crazy drunken step dad knifed all four tires with jealous rage. Never knew until i was cleaning the wheels one day. For that i was glad they worked as designed. Still cost me 2K for new tires, but didnt leave me stranded

    Me as well. I am already 56. If it weren't for health insurance costs I would have already pulled the plug, or at least half pulled and worked part time for beer and gas money.

    I can take Vicodin like candy with little to no effect. About 10yrs ago they would give me 60 pills for sinus infection pain, took 6 a day for 10days. Wife cant take one without issue.

    Ive resorted to ibuprofen for pain nowadays, doc and pharmacist said i could take 36 a day for 2 wks without damage to liver or stomach. Anything longer than 2 wks and i prob got other problems than pain. I start them strong but wean myself off them quickly.

    Have several extractions and 5 implants installed in your mouth, 36 ibu’s knocks the edge off just enuf to tolerate life. Doc in Costa Rica gave me some super potent narcos, i tossed those right away

    Yeah, my mortgage isn’t shit. I’m ready now. I’m tired of all the corporate bullshit. Just today alone there’s been enough drama about next week’s sales meeting via e-mail to last me the rest of my life.

    The threatening dress code one I chuckled at particularly loud. So, I have no choice but to go into full :amazon mode. :evil

    I’m not 12 years-old for Christ’s sake. :fpalm

    The doctor gave them to me after carpal tunnel surgery. I took one, never again. It was a horrible experience for me like you guys are describing.

    Thanks. Not going to put them on a car. Rear tire on the Goldwing. I have read that car guys hate them and Wing guys love them. Wings are big enough bikes that fully loaded up and run at high speeds when it is hot out the rear tires are at or exceed their limits. The car tires have higher load limits and are run flats in the case of a flat. The handling is different, not bad but different, they last longer, run cooler, are cheaper and give a better ride since they are run 10 or 15 psi less than a bike tire.

    The office I had this done at offered a healthy discount if I paid cash. While I was still "recovering" there, my wife and the receptionist were figuring out the math on the total due, to which I blurted out before either of them could calculate with a calculator. I apparently made a snarky comment about how I got the math done drugged up quicker than they could :lol3

    Come up to our shop every Friday, and usually every 2nd Wednesday each month. Cookies, donuts, pastries. It's like getting diabetes central
