  1. I have to agree dirt bike riding is much different than street bike riding. I grew up in the country and had dirt bikes. We had trails and pits to ride on. 125s were usually the max for our crowd. Enough for fun not too much to control. When I got my license I had hot rods and drag raced plenty. I got a high powered street bike through horse trading with cars. There’s a different mindset dealing with street bikes. Fast cars are no match for fast bikes. It takes longer to master a fast bike. Much longer than a fast car. Bikes are less forgiving. I know a few who couldn’t make the transfer. One life time Harley driver. One lifetime dirt racer and car racer. They made a mistake and didn’t respect the bike. I owned a street bike one day. I like the sensation of speed too much. Never rode a street bike again. I recognized my limit.

  2. I’m still researching. I did locate an outfit that sells and rents. Check out American Dream Vacations. You can buy it. Leave it for rental. They supply everything. Use it when you want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


    I visit older than me outside. My grandkids visit me outside. I still go out to eat. Face cover, hand sanitizer, check. Precautions taken. The younger less patient take more chances and are less likely to die. I look at them as warriors for herd immunity. I don’t go around them. I don’t go where they go naturally anytime. Bug or not. Like a cold I figure more likely than not I’ll get it. There’re many things out there that can kill me. I don’t sit around and shake in fear about it. I take precautions. Hopefully if or when they’ll be mitigated medications for it. A cure? I doubt it. Mutations will probably take care of that. The malaria drug is front and center as a mitigator if taken early, imagine that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


    I heard an interesting stat this morning. It’s general knowledge the deaths are degreasing as time passes. Interesting though the state with the most deaths are states that are still shut down. Texas and Florida are among the lowest. Texas is under 100 per million. The younger less at risk people may be increasing herd immunity while the older population is protecting themselves.

  5. Gearing has lots to do with tow rating. I use to change my gearing on my automatics so they wouldn’t down shift so much. They were mostly use for towing. Most higher tow ratings are cooling packages and gearing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I lived in a 5th wheel working out of town for many years . Swore I’d never do it again. Just discovered that you can lease them out when not in use. I should have known, I do exactly that with my Myrtle beach condo. I’m going to do more research. I may buy an van type motor home and rent it when I’m not using it.

  7. I’ve been contemplating purchasing a used van for my cross country trips. Not to sleep in. Just to add a bathroom and small refrigerator to bring my food with me. Rest stops and meal stops are what’s keeping me home. I’ve been even contemplating a possible slide in for my Avalanche if it’s possible. Here I thought I had the rest of my life planned. I like my house. But I’m ready to get the hell out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I wouldn’t have problem with anything wearing the Honda brand. When it came to longevity I chose the Toyota Camry. A bigger NA engine and a non CVT transmission. I planned to pass it to my daughter who probably would pass it to hers. Ultimately it came down to who had the biggest savings at the time. Toyota won that battle too. Honda is much better looking though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. A modified 92 Chevy truck, 64 elcamino and a Genesis coup. The last one to go was the truck 3 months ago. The coup got traded in for my 14 GMC. The 64 on eBay after about a year for a hefty profit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’ve put a million miles behind the wheel of a truck. I never had a complaint with comfort. As far as efficient a car is more efficient and my opinion comfortable. Cars are more hunkered down and less prone to move around in windy conditions. My wife drives a Genesis. That’s our trip car. For awhile I used a Camry a very efficient and comfortable car. Cars are a real bargain right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I wake up every day thankful for everything. I’m worried that some our freedoms are being eroded. I was listening to a local radio talk show this morning while walking. He has several business at the beach. Last time they locked down the people still came. Instead of being on the beach they jammed the town. Pretty much shoulder to shoulder instead of spread out on the beach. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Our local Houston news reported one the reasons in uptick in hospitalization is delayed procedures because of the lockdown. Some of those people unknowingly to them had COVID with no symptoms. Of course that doesn’t fit into the pre November narrative. So it’s not being reported. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. One of the favorite spare time activities for the forth of July has been cancelled by our genius leaders. They close the beaches. Probably one of the safest places to be. I’m pretty sure people are getting the idea they need to back off a little. But of course our leaders know what best for us. Maybe the youngsters need to stage a demonstration at the beach. Every one knows covid doesn’t effect anyone during those. It would be safe and legal. Just ask our glorious leaders. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It was a on the local Houston news that 200 police have tested positive. It was stated the probability was the over 60K demonstrators in Houston a few weeks ago we’re the cause. They were in the middle of that. Most of the demonstrators were young people. You think maybe that age groups increase positive testing may have something to do with the demonstrations. And bars of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
