** passed the visual with no specks, so finally got that off. Funny, I can fly a plane without glasses, but needed them for driving. Go figure.
Good job Guy on passing your test and passing on the ADV info.

The sweet girl at Capitol ale House, where I posted from, was totally intrigued by my appearance/question about wi-fi-/ beer choice, along with my intensity of posting, followed by vertical leap and "woooooooo hooooooooooo" (I tipped her well on the 2 beers that totaled $24....each....)yeah, good beer is worth it.....
I gave her the site, and explaned the whole scenario to her.... she was quite impressed, and even went so far as to say she'd pass this along to the owner (my pals....) for future use (anybody say mega party?????) on the house...
yeah, it's good to be a beer officianado.....

You must be insane! That would be like, what, 12 cases of PBR? Glad that my Dundee's honey brown lager is just fine for me and 5.99 for a 6-pack.

Anybody ever use a snowmobile helmet? Looked interesting, with dual stage shield for anti-fogging, better venting etc... Any reason not to get one for winter use on the bike? Why is it designated for snowmobiles anyways?

Look here: http://motodirect.com/product/1_48-S...ce=google-base

Ditto that. Ain't no way in hell I'd spend $24 for a beer, knowing full well I'd be pissin' it out 15 minutes later. I "busted the bank" on my beer budget today for a case of Guiness 'cause my older daughter and her (new) hubby are coming in tonight for Xmas. Last serious Guiness experience was up in the Village (NY) where we sat around getting sauced on Guiness on draught and car bombs:







Thought it ironic we run into a fella wearing an IC tee:

all about quality... not quantity..

unfortunatly drinkin Guiness is a waste of time/money....and it does go thru ya fast, as its water... seriously.
Domestic sold product ain't as high in abv as Molsen Ice....or even YEUNGLING....
"Guiness is a stout, and although it is very dark in color, it is actually lower in calories and alcohol content than most beers (4.3 % abv, while Bud, Coors & similar are all around 5% abv). Many dark craft beers that are produced with fresh, good quality ingredients have proteins & vitamins that provide many health benefits (just as much, if not MORE than wine!). Drinking a beer or two a day can promote health by reducing chance of stroke and heart and vascular disease, increasing the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) in the bloodstream, reducing stress, etc."

Check out these Guinness facts:
http://frodo.marshall.edu/~bennett7/guin...

Kinda like the amature's (kids) thoughts that Yeager shots and beers waste you faster cause you are getting alcohol from the shots... no further from the truth, the reason is there is soo much sugar in the Taegermiester, that the liver/kidneys have to work harder to filter it... Yag's is only 40 proof, or 20%abv in reality... per shot....)

I like the "Bastich" medal, I have the original sticker on my bike trunk....
and notice the glass in the photo here???
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=3625


bought a "magnum" bottle of "Oaked Double-Bastich" for our son 2 years ago for X-mas.... he has yet to open it.... it took momma and I 2 sessions to finish one off... damn thing is 20 inches tall...and has a lockable resealable lid.... once you open it, it's gotta be drank....mmmmmmmmm
drank it sittin on the porch after Isabell, waiting for the power to come back on....

that $23 price for Dogfish Worldwide Stout at CAH is outragious, but each one is like drinking 6 normal(blechhh) beers when you drink a 12 oz. x 23 % abv like that. (again, that would be more alcohol than a DOZEN shots of YeagerMiester...argggggg)
I get them for around $25 a 4 pack at the Caboose...
Just picked up some Southern Tier Imperial 'Choklat' Stout (Blackwater series) that is simply the best I have tasted in my life as an example of the style...and as a beer judge... $6.50 a bottle (23oz.) wow.....

"life is too short to drink bad/cheap beer".


happy holidays!!!!

We all drink what suits our palet(sp), and wallet. Personally, to me, some of them brews taste like crap (and spark up an instant headache). I'll drink what ales me.... pun intended.

And happy holidays to you too.
