  1. I don't get this, unless your a lumberjack or trying out for a acting part as tarzan, how could this be in any way comfortable
  2. Us bank charge me a fee for depositing to much cash in a month. Now I bank some where else.I am sure it was in the fine print somewhere. Sent from my Z959 using Tapatalk I'm a big fan of people taking their business to wherever it's most advantageous. We all act in our own self interest. When a bank acts in its self interest half the world goes Bakersfield Chimp. Hypocrisy is one of my biggest pet peeves. I loved their ATMs. Cash posted instantly. Checks over night. Wells Fargo has the same type of ATM. But I hate them worse. So I am with a credit union by my house.Sent from my Z959 using Tapatalk I rarely use an ATM, but when I do I appreciate how quick and easy Wells Fargo's are. Insert card, enter PIN, hit one button... and you get your card back, the cash comes out and the receipt arrives via email. Barely enough time to be robbed at gunpoint.I deal in basically an all cash business. It's rare I take cash out. But I dump a lot in. Sent from my Z959 using Tapatalk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyUoH_V9kS0 I was thinking the same thing. However the author notes, the 25 - 35 dollar fee to wire transfer money, umm PayPal anyone it's free.
  3. AotD, I can't get a job everyone says I'm over qualified. Then whine on FB why you have no money Bull, it's too easy to sit on your flowers and collect from the government, kids are at school, and old enough to handle themselves for the half hour difference till you arrive home. I was in fact overqualified for jobs I accepted at times, needed income, they needed an employee it worked. Until they find a career besides mouching, for people who suffer from Lima Alpha Zulu Yankee Syndrome, it's going to continue
  4. Shameless raunchy comedy at its finest, I dated a girl who looks like Fiona, which was kinda funny that she found me on FB the same day. Finally watching breaking bad and Sons of Anarchy
  5. Jeff Verde, honestly I been thinking of doing trips like that, but I think I need a cruiser, I love my sport bikes, and cafe racers and such. But to do an adventure ride after about 3 hours on my bike my shoulders start to feel it. I live in Pennsylvania, so we have the most bipolar weather you can imagine, one day it's 70 and warm, the next it's 30, and windy, Friday was a great example, I took, my bike to work, as I was heading to MD this weekend for a friend's party, left work it wasn't too bad, stopped for food and started south, I live right by the susquehanna, and I got to the bridge to find out how cold it was, oh and to my surprise icy, nothing will freak you out more than to find out the bridge froze when your doing 70 and it starts to get all kinds of squirly,
  6. My sympathy, especially if it is anywhere near the biotch the Navistar EGR cooler is to replace. Which is why most Navistar/Ford owners put in an aftermarket kit to bypass the EGR cooler. You have to remove the trans, and most of the intake ducts, on the top, the problem is that most medium duty trucks idle alot, so GMS lack of thought led to a gem that gets clogged up when sitting and idling. Our one tool guy has a medium duty GM and he said he's guaranteed twice a year the EGR gets replaced, they make a bypass kit, but the EGR is a bit of a challenge for thr home mechanic to do on these things
  7. I'm in the wonderful northeast, so riding months are usually may thru October, with the occasional days during the off months. Frustrating tho as one minute it's beautiful and then out of nowhere it starts pouring, or it gets bitter cold. That's exactly what happened to me yesterday, 70 degrees and warm, left work and went on a excursion, only go get hit with some serious wind chills when I was an hour from home, luckily I had my liner and a hoodie with. Pulled over fueled up dressed up, and worked my way back home I was told weather apps are your friend, but when the weather app is dead wrong....
  8. Credit_help, there is a great bunch of youtubers out there, of course it's a free posting Internet so as you probably know take everything with a grain of salt. And to be honest I kinda regret cutting ties with that nighthawk, if I could find another when I have free cash, it will be on the stable. That poor thing took such a pounding from a teenager, who was learning how to ride poorly, only to sell it to my friend who continued my journey of learning to ride poorly,
  9. I have dairy land insurance, 1/2 the cost of insurance thru progressive and I went for higher limits on a sport bike, for 108/yr. Like most others in the forum I been riding bikes since I was 12, got my M endorsement a few years ago. My first bike was a 1984 Honda Nighthawk 450, smooth bike not overpowering. And wasn't too heavy. I'll give you my tips, as others have, many variables apply. What kind of bike do you like? Sport, cruiser, supermoto? Obviously, your not going to want to ride a bike you don't find comfortable or appealing, each have their own benefits. And downfalls which I can touch on. Sport, lightweight, easy handling, smaller ccs, are not very overpowering. Disadvantages, posture, and it is hard on your upper body until you get used to it. Also lightweight means winds, and tractor trailers and the such have no problems pushing you around. Cruiser, a much more comfortable ride, however a bit more weight to shove around and don't handle as good as a sport bike. What kind of riding do you plan to do? Across town? Commute to work via the highway? Ride with friends? Don't have any friends that ride? Don't worry you will make some. Your a smaller guy so if you want something to handle freeway riding stay in around the 500cc range. A 250cc can handle freeways but it's screaming in your ear at 70mph, Gear, no one gear will just do, I'm sure if you head over to your local cycle shop and start talking gear and tell them your new interest, most shops here are cool of course the want to get you to buy something but the one I use the most are always willing to let newbies see what they got, try stuff on and give their opinion, three things to consider when selecting gear. Comfort, safety, and mobility. The most expensive doesn't mean the best, the best is what's gonna save you from road rash and broken bones in thr event of a fall. It also has to be flexible enough that you can handle your motorcycle, move your head, and arms, legs etc. Cant ride, if you can't see, or move Also Walmart and other big box stores sell cheap helmets, and gear, stay away, I've seen what these helmets and such look like on the inside and there is a reason they are there, poor padding, bare minimum protection. Helmets, once again comfort, and after any incident replace, I've heard of it can be inspected blah blah blah, my life is more important than the few hundred I'll drop on a helmet. The MSF courses, I went for mine later in my riding career, and learned alot, things I never even thought of. I went back and took, the rest of the courses. In PA they are free, and not required each state has their own rules fees etc. The other benefit is the Basic rider course is designed for those who never really rode a motorcycle and want to learn. Small cc bikes and you will be able to maneuver like a champ with it on your last day. My suggestion is for a first bike, or a returning rider who hasn't rode on a long time, look for something on the used market, craiglist, letgo, etc. I see them all the time especially sub 600cc bikes go for less than 3k. Be realistic until you are comfortable, no need to drop 20k on that nice new showroom bike, something cheap to learn on god forbid you do have a incident, you don't watch your life savings go down with it. Gear, rides etc. Always hope for the best prep for the worst. I may not look like one of those cool squids, wearing a helmet, bonus for gloves, but I like my skin where it's at. I took a spill last year on some gravel, nicked up my fairing, my jacket and gloves took a beaten, along with my pants, but I picked up my bike, shaked off, got my bearings and rode home. I was sore and bruised thr next day, but nothing too bad, my one riding buddy always says there is 2 kinds of riders the ones who went down and those who will go down. Better to be prepared, than to be road rashed. If you haven't rode in years hop on a mountain bike, it gives you a feel of the balance and such. Best of luck, hope to see you on 2 wheels soon. Btw, I have a gsxr 600. Now, powerful enough to go where I need to,
  10. People bragging about their credit card debt, Seriously, why are you so enticed to share that you have 8k on just one card. Let alone admit your still paying for that dinner you ate 6 months.
  11. I actually thought the same thing, don't come to class we will give you more time off, Harrisburg high is the inner city school here, alot of low income families in that district, it is plagued with issues a little more than kids bagging school, alot of families moved to send their children to CD East, and those who that can afford much more, head across the river to Mechanicsburg & camp hill
  12. Yes this is true, there was a YouTube video about why mechanics curse so much, I have yet to watch it. I just remember my old service manager hanging out in my bay one day when I was replacing a egr cooler on a duramax, fought it out cursing all the way, without skipping a beat he says sounds like work getting done here
  13. That. Craftsman will be the "prosumer" end of things. DeWalt is already SB&D's "pro" lineup of power tools. Didn't know they owned Dewalt go figure. I have a few products from them all, my last purchase was a makita brushless impact after my snap on impact started a,fire replacing a fuel pumpYikes! I think I'd used a standard ratchet and socket for a fuel pump but that's meActually it's a high pressure fuel pump on the v6 from gm, there was a recall on the equinox that required us to replace them, I did Hundreds of them with that cordless impact no issues. One finally got me, the guy who works next to me said go with a brushless impact, it doesn't generate sparks, I have and then sold my snap on impact with charger & two batteries on let go.Ah. So not the old two-bolt and two-Line camshaft operated fuel pumps that every shade tree knows well. Actually quite similar to the old school cam lobe driven tech. They have direct injection now, similar to diesel the fuel pressure is usually between 800 - 1200 psi https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=62Rzbxmvpj4
  14. I was told a planet is defined as a object of specific mass, that has some sort of atmosphere and rotates around the sun in a orbit. So if Pluto orbits around the sun, why are we denying it as a planet status? Or is a group of scientists hoping to develop a teenage boyish joke of the solar system ends with Uranus
  15. I'm sure, Marv, you would probably get a helluva raise if the dealer profited 17k on each car. As would I It's a porsche, so yes costs of manufacturing vs, the final sales price are significant as it's classified as a exotic sports car in the market, even though they offer more family friendly vehicles. If you look back at the big 3 crash back in 2008, what was the problem? Gas hikes steered people away from suvs and gas guzzling trucks, for econoboxes. Suvs and trucks were the big money maker and noone was buying. The less profitable cars at the time, focus, cobalts, & darts. Were easily countered by the sale of a truck or SUV. A lineup for everyone, afterall a Cadillac escalade of today fully loaded runs 95k, which really is a overpriced rebadged chevy suburban with extras. Porsche serves a niche market. You don't go to a porsche dealer, with fuel economy or a tight budget on your mind, you go looking for something that's going to impress your mistress, the people at the office and looks cool enough to have people ignore that terrible comb over your supporting
  16. IMO, all states should have a graduated licensing system. You start with responsible use of a bicycle, graduate and progress through the tiers of motorcycles (250cc, 600cc, +600cc, grading based on the number of days you ride the motorcycle), then you have the privilege of driving a car. I don't know about cars, but I know in some European countries for your motorcycle license your restricted over the years of riding experience, you start on a scooter graduate to a small bike medium bike etc. Pa you have to have at least a class c premit to even try for a motorcycle endorsement. The part that is irritating, you have a choice to complete the motorcycle safety program, or take the license test. If you pass the MSP rubber stamp you got a license. Similar to passenger car license you can get your permit today license tomorrow. If your under 18 you have hours requirements, and have to hold a premit for 6 months for motorcycles if your under 18 you have one year to take the MSP as a requirement to get your license. But here's the catch you have to have 50 hours of bike time before you can take the MSP. The basic rider course is designed for someone who never rode a motorcycle before and wants to learn, that sounds quite counter productive to the mission. I took the class I already had bad habits, I use 2 fingers on the clutch brake etc. So I got a lot of grief for that. We really need to restructure the licensing system for everyone UK: https://www.gov.uk/ride-motorcycle-moped/overview Indiana - you go to BMV and take the motorcycle written exam. Pass that, you'll receive a motorcycle learners permit. IF you take a MSF or ABATE riding course, you will be given a skills test which upon passing will allow you to get your full motorcycle endorsement. Must be age 16-1/2 to get the endorsement. Motorcycle endorsement allows you to ride any type or style of motorcycle. After the crackdown on scooters aka DUI-cycles, you now need a "motor driven cycle" license or endorsement and plates to ride a scooter. Used to be if you lost your license to DUI, you could ride a scooter on the roads. Now, if you are suspended or revoked, you'll lose the endorsement. Oh yes the dui cycles, Penn dot changed that about 3 years ago, used to be if you had a scooter you could get an endorsement that restricted you only to a scooter of 80cc or less. Now you don't need an endorsement just a class c aka regular license. I was a lazy prick for years and just rode on permits, but they changed that too. Now you can only get a permit that lasts a year and renew it twice before taking an exam. So you have 3 years to get a license, if you fail the exam so miserably, after 3 years of riding hang it up. The only restriction pa has now is if you test on a trike, you get a "8" restriction which limits you to trikes. If you have a M endorsement you can ride anything MSP here is optional and free for anyone over 18, I know some states mandate it, and you have to pay, but I enjoyed the course, and learned alot. I actually went back and took the BRC2, and the ARC.
  17. This is true next week she may want to be an astronaut, I wasn't sure 100% what I wanted to do when I got out of high school. I have always been good with mechanical things, and design, after the army I was a paramedic, but realized I really wanted to make money. So I went back into working on anything with a motor, and mechanical engineering, it's my 10 year bachelor's program that I hope to get back to before I'm 40

  19. Well said, the common cold can actually mutate to develop immunity from antibiotics etc. Thus why penicillin isn't as useful as it was at one time, similar to what was said the younger or in better health a,person may be in offers a better opportunity to rebound from an illness or surgery.

  21. It's just a dying technology. The whole cartridge games the manufacturers are still trying to push will die off and so will all these businesses. Retail boxes are dying overall. The only thing that will survive will be grocery stores and even then that will be changing with time. Well with clouds and downloads, who needs the disc? Alot of retro games that game stop was dying for trade ins on for their "retro game store" are available as Roms and digital downloads on the console market places. I the FYE, a music store is on the same chopping block
  22. I been seeing craftsman products show up at ace hardware stores. Now is SB&D going to make craftsman their "pro version of their products" or they going to kill it with dumping products at big box stores
