Do you have a specific time in the video you're referring to? Maybe I'm adjusting the camera, avoiding pot holes/man holes/road debris, being pushed by wind off the mountains/tractor trailers or just having fun.


Right from the start. After you adjust the camera angle and go to the right lane it gets pretty obvious (possibly after you go back to the left lane, can't remember). You go from the left side of the lane to the right side and back all the time. Especially take note of the sky. You see it roll from left to right all the time.

It's obvious Gramps feels semi-rich cuz he's ever so slightly above the poverty level. I guess it feels empowering to not be a peasant anymore... But bragging about going on a plane?... That's just gay...

It really wasn't bragging so much as it was making the point that 2 round trip plane tickets and 6 round trip Amtrak tickets in the span of one trip isn't exactly cheap. But you'd certainly know gay. You're only one nut away from being a chick.

Great weather today. My 20 minute commute took well over an hour today for some reason.

Your pic reminds me of a little mystery I have going on at my house... I have 4 helmets, well I HAD 4 helmets... One of those helmets is my spare helmet I use when I take chicks on my bike which is an HJC helmet. I got it really cheap so it's not important to me but it's been missing from the spot I normally store my helmets.. Helmets aren't really that small so you would think finding this missing helmet in my house would be pretty easy but alas I cannot. It's not in my garage either or anywhere I've searched for it and I have much nicer helmets at home, in fact, they're all better so why someone would steal that helmet is beyond me, not that I suspect anyone of stealing a helmet from my home... Nice pic tho.

I always wanted to lower my car about 1.5", but it's already scraping on driveways and entrances to lots. So the last few weeks I've been working on installing Air suspension giving me 6-7" of travel from frame on the ground to above stock height. it's been a good learning experience on how to properly install air. Works great no more scraping and IMO looks great parked with the frame on the ground.

I've got the system installed with the exception of the height sensors which will sense each wheel's height and adjust as needed to keep the car level. Once installed it should keep the car level when banking hard corners and even adjust for when I eat too much taco bell...

Thanks guy I am enjoying the way she is turning out.

@Eraser the 350z was a million years ago, I'll always remember that car, but that car car scene was a nightmare. The Mopar car scene in my area is much more relaxed...

On Sunday we did a 250+ mile ride to Cafe 27 in Fort Lauderdale. It's a very popular spot for riders from all over south Florida. On any given weekend (with good riding weather) there could be hundreds of riders hanging out.

Just got off my bike. It's 3°C (37F) so while it's chilly, it's still quite nice with an additional layer of clothing. Am hoping the slick pavement will still be away for some time, but it's gonna freeze during daytime here later this week :(

Yeah that's chilly. I'd be cautious with anything under 4C, you can hit black ice at +4C if you run across a patch that's been in the shade.

I will be off the internet for up to 3 weeks :tear:
Yes I have a smart phone but I don't surf and won't be posting here. I'll be lucky if I answer emails.

Why I hear you say. Recall a tile disaster in my apartment. Work removing and then relaying some 130sqm of tiles starts Thursday.

We are 98% packed as we need move out. Just finished sealing up stuff because we're told the tile removal process is very dusty.

Wish me luck Q3W :) and I'll see you soon... ... ....

I rode in another charity toy drive this past Sunday. It had 200+ bikes and a police escort.

Thanks. I may tell the story later but briefly, floor tiles started exploding under our feet on 6 September. Many insurance inspectors/assessors/engineers visited and we are still fighting insurance companies and trust they pay the $25K AUD we have spent.

We are off site and I am on a laptop/tablet... Bloody dicky keyboards ...typing is hard work... I'll try and manage pictures (or it didn't happen) soon...

Tilers started laying new tiles today....

I miss my PC :( so much...
