Man, that's an awesome suit! :D

It is. Actually, it's too big on him and the pants were falling off even after I cinched it all the way). I know you said I can get it back to you but I think I may get him a smaller size and use this one for street riding myself.

I need a new one for track but I may finish out the Sedici (crashed twice so far) if I crash this year then get myself a RS Taichi (not top of the line but mid-range).

This year it seems like all my stuff is falling apart. My gloves are getting thin, my suit's guts are starting to come apart and my boots a splitting on the side. To be fair, all of these items were involved in the crashes and I had them since 2012.

Saw these on QVC this morning, and thought about Ed and Dog. And any of our other dog lovers.

It's a hand and paw bracelet.

This is the company that actually makes them... http://handandpawproject.com/

But QVC had a better price.

I probably made a diesel truck mad today in the car. That was fun. Guess they don't like to get a gap the size of a train put on them when they try to "roll coal."

I can't stand those douche nozzles that do the rolling-coal shit. Not from the "global warming, you're murdering our ozone" aspect, just someone being a shitty human being for no particular reason irks me.

I guess I will have to wait on that upgrade on my truck :lol:

Just joking... yes they're assholes. And you don't know how many times they did that to us riding bicycles. 

One time I chased one of those asshats to his house on my bicycle (what moron would do that 2 miles away from their house)... He wouldn't come back out of his driveway so we could 'talk' :loser:

It's obnoxious. He tried it twice. Once on a 4 lane city street and again merging onto a major highway.

 

From my understanding, the trucks that are rolling coal are running stupid rich which isn't needed unless you have a massive turbo you need to spool for sled pulling or drag racing. But odds are, guys aren't driving a dedicated sled puller or drag truck around on the street. So tune it right, or simply don't try and smoke out a lane of traffic. I think they look pretty dumb when they make all that noise and smoke, but don't go anywhere.

I think they also remove a version of catalytic converter as well to do that.

Pretty sure the issues Todd had was on his 2014 that he already sold off. But I do recall him mocking Yamaha when they had a transmission recall. At least they caught it in the first year of manufacture and not three years later!

My 2016 made that list so I called JMP and I will drop it off on Friday sometime.

I might look at smaller displacement options while I am there :)

Soo....yesterday riding the bike, I swerved to avoid hitting a
deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my 
head.

Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch 
to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible 
pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, 

"Are you okay?"

As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low cut blouse with
cleavage to die for...

"I'm okay I think," I replied as I pulled myself up to the
side of the car to get a closer look.

She said, "Get in and I'll take you home so I can
clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your 
head."

"That's nice of you," I answered, but I don't 
think my wife will like me doing that!

"Oh, come now, I'm a nurse," she insisted. 

"I need to see if you have any more scrapes and then 
treat them properly."

Well, she was really pretty and very persuasive. 

Being sort of shaken and weak, I agreed, but repeated, "I'm sure my
wife won't like this."

We arrived at her place which was just a few miles away and, after a couple of
cold beers and the bandaging, I thanked her and said, "I feel a lot 
better but I know my wife is going to be really upset so I'd better go now."

"Don't be silly!" she said with a smile, while unbuttoning her blouse 
exposing the most beautiful set of ta tas I've ever seen.

"Stay for a while.She won't know anything. By the
way, where is she?"

"Still in the ditch with my motorcycle I guess"

I signed up for an SCCA membership today. SCCA mebership and 1 autox event qualifies me for Mazdaspeed Motorsports Team. That gives me like 40% off oem Mazda parts. Then to stay a member I have to do one event every 2 years. Seems like a no brainer. 

Wish Yamaha or Triumph did this.

I thought I was the only one that saw the irony in that.
