  1. F the g&f, f the IRS, f the fed, the state and every other petty tyrant that thinks they’re part of some modern day feudal lordship system that can screw with us peasants at will.  I can’t wait for bird watching season to start next spring.  Although, since I still have a few hanging on trees, I guess the season never really ended, did it?  I consider it a moral obligation to resist would be dictators that want to micro manage every aspect of your life.

  2. So maybe some of you fitness gurus can help me out, as I’m stuck.  Dropped about 12# from Oct-Nov, from 186.  Been stuck at the 174ish for a month already.  I only eat twice a day, light lunch then whatever the wife makes for dinner.  Alternating light weightlifting with jogging every other day.  I need to drop to 160-165.

    What foods should I be avoiding?  Fasting, if so for how long?

    Our 2014 v6er has been a good vehicle.  The V6 is pretty gutless but is enough for her.   She has managed to wear her brakes out in 42k miles.  Makes me wonder how I have gotten 116000 out of my Ram 2500's brakes and she cant get 50k out of her's. haha.

    Sounds like she’s better at drafting and trail braking then you are ;) 

    I got the wife one a couple years ago after her RAV4 was snow bound for the second time in a month.  Our is a 2019 sr5 with the v6 and came from the dealer with a lift and little bit bigger tires.  Great 4 wheeler.  Way better in the snow and on rocky washed out forest roads then my ram1500 is.  I think that thing would climb a pine tree if you wanted it to.

  4. I've spent a couple weekends with these guys over the last month, first at Streets of Willow Springs in Rosemond California back in September & then last weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  Can't say enough good things about their program.  I've been riding since I was in my early twenties, and have raced previously at the amateur level.  I had no idea how much I didn't know.  Their coaches are top notch, and I sure gained a lot from the program.  

    We had sportbike guys, adventure/touring riders & even harley guys in the class.  It doesn't really matter what type of bike you throw your leg over, this training is an absolute blast, and you will learn a ton of stuff!  Plus, let's face it, it's hard to have more fun then riding a 200hp 1000cc sportbike on a closed course/race track...

  5. This happened to me a few weeks ago.  Someone got my logins and started posting items "for sale" here and on a motorcycle forum I'm on.  For those of you that don't know, here's how it works:

    Most/many discussion forums are very weak on security.  Some will even have a "not secure" sign at the top of your browser next to the web address.  Once a site has been compromised hackers on the 'dark web' gain a list of everybody's username and login password.  Since most people use exact same username & password for many or all of the forums they're on, they only need to hack one set of credentials and then google search your username which will bring up a list of other forums your are on.  They then just keep trying the password for every forum you are on.

    If you don't want to have this happen to you, the easiest thing you can do is create a unique password for each forum.  I know it's a real pain in the butt to keep track of a bunch of passwords, but if you don't they only have to get your credentials for one site and then they can easily log in to your account on all the forums you're on that use the same username/password combination.
