    It doesn't happen all at once. But it's happening...


    Doing the math, that means in 40 years a new Slingshot will be $192,000!

    That is a steal at that price. Might get two so the misses can have her own. Going to my dealer now to stock up on the cheap ones. Can get maybe 20 or 22 in my shop. Store them until the new ones go up and sell them at a high profit. Anybody want get get in on this deal?

    We went for the fast lap ride last night. Got up to 110 then put it in fifth gear and slowed to 100, I have got to fix that. Pasted almost all of the touring style bikes and a couple of sport bikes, could not even get close the Hayabusa. The most of them could out run me on the straights but I could catch them up in the corners, I know the road pretty good and the 25 mph posted corners are really more like 55 to 60. Just scuffed some old rubber off the tires. I need a stiffer sway/anti-sway bar for sure, had a little to much body roll for it to be real fun.

    We won't be in PNW until the first of September. We are now in a BBQ joint in Altus OK on a CMA state convention. Bout 400 to 450 in attendance in Medicine Park, we have the fifth wheel parked at the Fort Sill campground. But we will be up for a ride when we get there. You guys scout out all the good eatin places for us.

    Same old crap. Stories from the Vietnam Conflic/War were all over the place. More for the writer entertainment than the readers education. Just trips my trigger when I hear high school kids down grade or hurl insults at veterans. Would like to put them in a time machine and ship there privileged ass back to any war era. Like to see them piss their panties when a mortar goes off fifty feet away, or have their toes frozen off in Korea, or when the vietcong overrun a position, or any number of things the same veterans they are hurling insults at went through for that students right to do just what they are doing and in a free country. If they can read thank a teacher, if it is in English thank a veteran. Don't get me on my horse on the subject.


    I'll close with a saying I penned years ago.


    IF A COUNTRY DOES NOT REMEMBER AND HONOR IT'S FALLEN HEROES OF THE PAST , IN THE FUTURE THAT COUNTRY WILL NOT BE HONORED AND REMEMBERED.

    On a footnote in my defense I was standing next to SlingLow

    I wonder how hard it would be to just cut one link of the chain?


    I have both the SRi9000 and the brake handle to shifter lock. We put on the lock then run a cable lock under it and through both chin bars on our helmets. We find people that wants to mess with anything back off when they hear a few chirps. The remote rattles in my pocket which sends muscle movement to my gun hand. I would probably find the bad guy in just the right position fiddling with the shift knob pin to make a perfect hole in one shot. Just 18 times if you know what I mean.

    I have always held the opinion that three subjects should not be argued in public. Politics, Religion, and Sex. In politics and religion you believe in who is right for you and there is no arguing about sex, it is just plain great.


    With that being said reading the politics suck thread and getting insulted is right up there with being bullied on the internet. If it bothers you dont go there.

    I usually strip all emblems and manufacturers markings off anything I own. They don't pay me to advertise for them, so I don't.


    It takes something I am proud to be a part of for me to put it on any of my rides. Here is where I put my SOG stuff.



    And of course it is being guarded.

    Looks good.....is it possible to use a fine sandpaper to smooth it out. And them maybe polish it like paint?

    No, powder coating does not act like paint at all. I tried sanding and buffing and just had a mess.


    LC

    Time flies and I walk, sometimes with a limp. However, I took two tries and a bit of waiting to finally get a clean results.



    Then I tried another under hood piece.....

    What do you all think of my first chrome powder coating attempt?


    And again a big thanks goes out to BryanL .

    I am all about find out why you should not open something, tearing off tags, checking wet paint and opening doors that have signs to keep door closed. Why did they put the door there if not to be opened. Just quirky that way.


    Have you doing up in the cold PNW?


    LC

    Did some interweb searching and found this.......



    Low-maintenance, sealed batteries already are filled with electrolyte and have been sealed and fully charged at the factory. If they're not fully charged before use, battery life will be significantly reduced. Never pry the sealing strip off or add any other fluid to the battery. Never add electrolyte or distilled water to a low maintenance battery. Doing so will damage the case and shorten the life of the battery.



    So I guess I answered my own question. Do I get bonus points or something?



    LC

    So is the stock battery a dry battery? Took mine out for service and did not stop at the "do not remove" wording and opened it up. There does not seem to be a drop of water/acid in it. However, the decal on the side says be careful of acid burn. What's up???

    Dealer has already done the ABS bleed deal with the Electric Wrench . I did a powder coat on the rotors and calipers so the brake bleed is on me. Just wanted to hit up the brain trust on the forum to see what light the could shed on the deal.

    Heet is mostly just alcohol to take care of water. Sea foam is a good choice as is Berrymans and several other cleaners. Before a drop a pile of money on a new pump just to replace the filer(s) i would do a good power wash of the filters when I had them out of the tank, then replace and see what you get. Just seems way stupid to make a system that does not have a replaceable filter with out replacing major components.
