Dang it! Now that I found out it helped Dallas, I wish they would have lost too!

Two words for next week: Go Eagles!

Yea, doesn't look like the most stable platform. Looks like someone's 'garage' project rather than a real product. Dunno.

Thanks for the info! But for myself, if the snow is so deep that I need this kit to ride my bike, I'm moving further South!

but yer still my best pal....

I was coerced into getting her that camera, but got her one that I wanted.

Actually, the one I wanted was about 5 times that, but couldn't justify it. Your, or my "raise" wouldn't have come close considering I didn't get one.

Well, I thought I was done Christmas shopping. Much to my dismay, the wife is making me go back out and get her 'something else'. She caught me wrapping her present. Can't believe that she wants something more than an ADV T-shirt and bumper stickers... Guess I'll keep 'em.

that has to be a record delivery time from them...seeing as the memory chips I ordered last Woot took 21 days to get here...
It's still cold, so I'm lettin it warm up, but man o man this is a sweet toy!!!!
$124 delivered.... it's smaller than a pack of Camel 'humps ( my brand)....

now I don't have to park in precarious places just so I can get my cam outta the trunk.....
I guess "windshield shots ("a-la-Mikey" style) will be a reality now.......

I do suggest you taggers keep Woot as a daily quick check in the morn, the, some of the deals they have on gear like this are totally incredible!

Santa showed up early!!!
Now I know why your phone was busy when I tried call today, you were SHOPPING.

Hey guys. Just got in from the garage. Put a new can on the SV. HOLY smokes it sounds WhOA to say the least. It may be too loud for my liking and attract unwanted attention. Now that I've finished with my Craftsman Twin Cutter, torch and angle grinder I think I'll retreat to my couch. Now I'm just waiting for my chain and sprockets to come in before I can take it for a test ride.

Ended up sending the electric vest back. Voltmeter showed it was too much for the system with the grip heaters on + the extra brakelights. I know, I know, but it was worth a try.

I'm thinking snowmobile suit now. Hope they make it in white 'cause I know how thick they are and I could look like the Stay-Puff Marshmellow man!

Did something happen to the old muffler, or did you just want it LOUDER?

Well I ended up dragging the stock muffler apparently on RT 56 lol. It had a little rash on it and I didn't like it. It sounded like a sewing machine and I wanted a little throatier sound. Well I got more then I asked for now lol. I should post a clip of it ....You just can't even imagine.
