If you ever get the chance, get some South American Coca-Cola 'cause they still use real sugar down there instead of the high-fructose syrup crap we have here. Never really believed the stories about their Coke being so much better, but its true. When my daughter got back from Nicaragua she brought me a 6-pack and boy what a difference! Now THAT was the Coke I remember! Just watch it though, 'cause some S.A. countries use the HFCS too, and not all Mexican food stores carry the good stuff either.

Merry Christmas everyone! After years of 4-5am present fests with my 2 girls when they were younger, I'm the first one up, and my 6yo son is a late sleeper. Having to wait on them for a change...

Have a great day all, and hope to see most of you all back on the streets or dirt or where ever you like to ride tomorrow..

I hope you all are having a great time today. We are about to venture out to Midlothian for the rest of the day. Got some cool relic hunting stuff. Seems the family isn't too keen on the two wheels lol. Mom just dropped by and said she was gonna get me that heated vest but said she didn't want to condone me riding lol.

What's the Acer? Laptop, desktop?? I need a new laptop, I spilled a pint of Bud's finest on mine last week and "kinda" messed up the screen

What's the deal with satellite internet?????? I have DSL with Verizon but it sucks big time, don't even try to get on when it's raining!!!

Got some cash and new small storage shed for the yard to get some junk out of the garage.

Been looking at this tire changer:

By the time you buy the nomar stuff for the Harbor Freight rig it's not that much more and it's actually made in the good ole USA!!

I'm getting tired of doing it on the floor with irons.

CHEAPO version:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...0-8023%20DLINK
2.5 hr battery time...

THIS IS THE 6.5 HR BATT VERSION:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=A180-8012


i found the deal 3 weeks go that had the 6hr unit, with the wireless router, bundled with a flash drive that had CA virus suite, Open Windows (emulates all the MS Office software, exactly)..., and a bunch of other software preloaded...
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...38342&csid=_22

sweet unit... no cd rom tho, and am having fits copying software.... the Stick works as a copy medium, but Garmin software ain't likin it at all... biotch garmen anyway...
I think they sold those all out....bummer....I got one.
I paid $400 earlier this year for a tower system with awesome M/B, and mega hd... XP, nothing else, and this has twice the storage as that one...
and fits my tank bag... go figure.
