No lie! 81 Oak St. just west of I-5 a couple of exits south of Willows. I used to do 20+ track days a year at Thunderhill, so I've eaten at just about every place in the area. If I were making up a...

Motion-X Drive didn't do what I wanted during the everything-free trial period. It does guidance, but customizing a route is limited and cumbersome. As far as I can tell, there's no support for...

Heated gear bulk?

I guess it's that time of year again: lots of heated gear threads popping up! Winters where I live in northern California are generally pretty mild. On the worst days, we're probably talking about...

You could also try Quirky Digits (http://www.quirky.com/products/37-Digits-Conductive-Glove-Pins), which might be more durable. Like YetiGS and bob393, I've found that my thinner leather gloves work...

I'm guessing you wouldn't like d3o then. I was looking for gear recently and tried several different pieces before finally buying an Aerostich Roadcrafter. Two of the jackets I tried were the First...
