I'm with Michhub.. Definitely avoid parking yours next to Burtonrider.

And don't bolt your seat down on my account, in fact I now think you should take the bolts back about and save .2 ounces.

How bout this: Your WR at Deals Gap..

I'd rather add the passenger pegs and helmet lock back. If I was worried about saving weight, I would start with myself. Burtonriders WR will get dirty soon enough.

While ya'll were playing with your dirt bikes, I didn't do squat today; took a break from the grease. Spurned on by a post in Jo Momma, I decided to drag out my Concert for George DVD to enjoy some good music, memories, and a few tears.

One of my favorites from that concert:



Enjoy.

I'm giving some projects much needed attention. Progress is slow.

To all the 2nd Amendment folks please write to the Executive Branch, our two US Senators and your Reps. When the new Congress convenes on Jan 3rd Sen Feinstein will be introducing a bill that will affect all of you whether you like guns or not. Read her proposed :Bill here

Potentially means that any grandfathered weapon like your M1 will be subject to you registering it with the Feds, fingerprinted, and you can never sell it. Upon your death your estate turns it over to the Government. We don't have much time so please let the idiots that represent us know how you feel.

Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms
Act, to include:
o Background check of owner and any transferee;
o Type and serial number of the firearm;
o Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
o Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that
possession would not violate State or local law; and
o Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

I read online that there would be a $200 fee not sure if that is annual or not. Bad Bill.

Great advice, I sent my emails on Saturday. Makes no difference what side of the debate you are on, this a direct assault to our Constitution.

What !!!! No Dakar on TV

Went to program the DVR ( I have Direct TV) so I didn't miss any of the Dakar this year and found out it will be broadcast by France Sport TV

I guess since NBC purchased Versey TV they lost the rights to cover the race...........this sucks.

My New Year just started out

2nd Amendment Discussion

Right to bear arms doesn't imply without regulation. We need to have both sides working on meaningful discussions instead of protecting our ideals. As I personally see it I don't know of any purpose a private individual would have for a high capacity assault rifle.

I am all for the right to own weapons for hunting, personal protection, and recreation. Just think we need to be open to drawing some more lines in the sand. No easy answer to this one, but there has to be some real conversation and not just the us vs. them BS.

I disagree on the assault rife (we as free, legal and law abiding citizens have the right to bear arms), I will agree on the high capacity clip, IMHO the military is the only one that needs this item.

But my question is...............how does a law abiding gun dealer determine that the purchaser is mentally stable? That is the $64,000 question.

Voight-Kampff test?




"You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and flip the tortoise on it's back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. You're not helping, why is that? "
