I picked up the Fox Drop Frame recently and really like it. More coverage than the SpeedFrame. I took a good digger onto the side of my head few weeks back and was super happy I had the protection over my ears. Think my ear would of ripped off if I didn't

Yeah, the arthritis is REAL. Like I noted in post above, 17 years post shattering (I'm 39 now) the arthritis has kicked in and sucks. My wrist actually feels thicker and more "firm" if you will than my non-broken side when I squeeze it from top to bottom. ... more »

"Also point toe in to avoid injury"... THIS is a critical part if you have your leg out. Toes should be pointing towards your forks or fender and leg as high up locked into the shroud as possible. By pointing your toe in, it actually allows more of the ... more »

Wow. These are incredible. I read WWII history religiously and have always been fascinated by it. My grandfather, John MacGillivray (whom my son is named after) was a purple-heart decorated Marine who fought in the Pacific theater as a radioman. He fought ... more »

When you go to Home Depot or Walmart, there are clear rules and guidelines allowing you to stay at a distance from other shoppers. When you're getting your hair cut, you have someone literally breathing over your shoulder, dude. Get it?

I run an FMF pipe and 2.1 silencer on my 19 150. I like it a lot. Found that the FMF pipe added a (slightly) broader power all around than the stock pipe. I threw my Mikuni away and got a HV Lectron w/ V4 reed block. I'll never take it off. That gave

F1 - Drive to Survive on Netflix. Both seasons are awesome. And incredible to see the technology, driver, and behind the scenes that go on to do what they do. It was fascinating.

It would be awesome too if High School and College students had mandatory "real world" economic lessons on how to pay your taxes, what debt really means, what interest rates mean etc. so that they don't eventually get into the real world and have zero ... more »
