What kind of motorcycles we're talking here: harleys or crotch rockets ? Because crotch rockets are known for a good amount of stupidity on the road at high speeds.
Touring bike that was cut off, and a sport bike in front of the incident.

Does that behavior include 'popping wheelies'?

There are a few parents on my local NextDoor site defending their kids doing wheelies on ther bicycles on busy streets! "I popped wheelies back when I was a teen, didn't you?" one asked me. 🤦‍♂️

There are a couple of kids new to my neighborhood who have some weird kind of DIY motorbike things. They're basically super modded regular bikes (I call them hoopdie bikes). Anyway, they're loud and always ruin my naps, and they don't have any lights on when they ride around at night. I'm sure if you hit one by accident, Maryland would blame you, because that's how Maryland is.

One of them actually did get hit, because he started throwing things at cars, and his parents declined to press charges against the driver because they knew a court would likely rule against them, lol.

Anyway, last time I rode a bike I was 6. I'll spare everyone the details, but I broke my front left tooth just a week after my adult tooth had grown in. Luckily, dental technology has come a long way, so I have it filled in with a natural colored composite, so nobody knows. But, no more bikes of any sort for me.

It is done.

It may be rejected by even Picasso, but if it does the job i want it to, then it's fine by me...

I'm not an artisan when it comes to tools by any stretch. It's why I drive for a living. Don't ask me to build anything for you.

Oh boy - if you were going to do that, you might as well have bought some mesh gutter guard with some zip ties and just thrown that on the outside. At least it would have been black and nobody would have noticed.

Are you saying you never bought and assembled IKEA furniture?


When you'll be at your regular mech. perhaps ask him to zip tie on the other side of the grill. This one should last you a bit, plus it'll be a control sample to see how much stuff hit that area.

I buy my furniture preassenbled.

The screen is stapled to the bumper. I dont think it's going to move. I could be wrong though...

I'm curious to see how cooling performance is affected once the screen gets dirty. Same goes for A/C. May have to spray it down one every couple of weeks with dirt/bug solvent.

Mam, you're more dangerous, than a thought. Lose the office supplies, not a reliable anchor type for the job at hand, get zip ties.

That will be the backup plan if this doesnt work, or if I want to try a different approach.

Ordering 08200-9008 dw-1 atf at reasonable costs turns out to be a pain in rear end, it is either oos or prices ask for a liver to be attached to arm and a leg.

Funny thing, I was supposed to deliver a live yesterday before it was cancelled.

True story.

I guess they didnt want yours after all.

They do, I just refuse to give it up. This total BS, I know one place that sells it, but keeps canceling online orders as they are hoarding it for themselves supposedly for in-house use, but we all know that's BS because they use bulk out of a drum fluid just like engine oil.

Time to get the condenser replaced, just in time for the weather to change where I'll need the heater going by tomorrow evening.

Shuttle: do you want to go to the casino?

Me: breakfast is fine. I'm spending enough already today...

Good choice. My mom used to work in a casino back in Atlantic City, and she said most of the games really are rigged. She also said they have body temperature sensors in some of the machines, and they'd reset after going cold for 3 minutes. There were also quite a few machines that were programmed to have payouts early on, so the person gets hooked and spends more money playing.

Fun fact of the day, that casino was near a beach, and she said they had an employee whose only job was to comb the beach for bodies/body parts each morning before opening...

@Cepega better not visit there. They might find his liver sipping a pina colada...
