looking around for a used hatchback for my daughter
needs to be a hatch for her dog - my granddaughter
she's not good with a manual, so needs to be an auto
don't need AWD - she lives in TO
budget of around 5K, preferably under 200 k on it
I like Subies but with miles on them the head-gaskets...
one of the reasons I ditched facebook was the red notification thingy
human nature is to check what is being indicated by the red icon
it's been studied re: social media use, that the icon induces a little dopamine hit
it becomes addictive, and this is by design to keep you coming back and...
anyone else into this?
when I started travelling for work I became a follower
I know @MacDoc is a listener
it's interesting in that the narrator can kill, or liven a piece of writing
great on the bike when you don't feel like music
anyone else into this? suggestions?
March 8 - who else got out today?
8 degrees and sunny, good enough for me
Belleville to Cobourg and back and some putting around ~ 250km
HWY 2 out there, blasted back across 401 to get rid of the sh1tty gas
thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, tomorrow looks even better
too early for bikinis though :(
like most of us here I'm missing riding like crazy
didn't get any big runs in last year - work pressures - taking care of that shortly
gonna try the Ape on a long tour this coming summer, 3-4 week time frame
be a mix of camping, air bnb's and the odd hotel stay
3 regions currently on my mind...
as we are on this eve of 2020, thought I'd show my appreciation to the Forum
what started for me as join on a whim, has come over the last few years to be a lot of fun
Forum has helped me with several subjects: bikes, tours, audio gear, food, cheese, beer
the comaradarie and free sharing of...
I think there's some old stereo heads on the forum?
thinking about getting back into some old stereo gear
back in the day I had a nice Pioneer Integrated Receiver
sold it in a moving sale - auction, think I got 10 bucks for it
kicking myself as they're quite valuable now
same with the TT...
after 20 years of hiding our heads in a paper sack
us Bills fans can take the bag off, and be proud again
anyone here alive when they were a 90's dynasty?
the K-gun no huddle offense.....put up 40 points in a half?
not saying we're back to that
but the Bills have a swagger that I haven't seen...
an electric pickup with good range and performance should sell really well
Tesla has made some great looking cars
but I'm not sure about this truck
range, HP, acceleration, towing capacity and size all seem good
the styling is not appealing to me
body looks like a tinsmith made it at home
have tried several different earbuds for tunes while riding
the Mee M6 Pros were pretty good
decent isolation with the proper tips
loud enough to hear
but they were brutally uncomfortable on long days
and damn near removed a chuck of ear taking the helmet off last time
as I keep my phone in a...
kickstand foot on the Caponord is very small
a real hazard on gravel, dirt and grass
couldn't find anything ready made for the bike
the leg is also really short
bike on side stand has a severe lean to the left
was loaded heavy a few weeks ago and had parked sideways to an incline
tossing around the idea of riding down to SC for the Hootie concert
for the ride and to get my 90's on in their hometown
doesn't look like any of my riding buddies are available/interested
anyone here think they might want to go?
likely around a 5 day trip including one day in Columbia, SC...
thinking I might try some bike camping
usually have have done hotels/air bnb's on my trips
gonna take off for a bit here in a week or so
see how the Caponord is on long days
main question: is about camping mats/bedrolls
after 10-11 hours on the bike
ground sleeping has never held much appeal...
close to pulling the trigger on a low km Caponord Rally
have been admiring this bike for some time
reviews are great and I love the gadgetry
but of course reading the forums there are horror stories
the Caponord forum is a ghost town
the ADV rider bunch are mostly boxer fans
this site being...
