  • Scoobum: Canada kicks off The World Hockey Championship at 6:20 am this morning. GO CANADA GO!!!
    May 11 2024, 06:08:37 AM
  • Scoobum: I guarantee this was a Karen neighbour that complained to the city. I had a fucktard neighbour on my street that complained to the town I was parking my car hauler in front of my house. I had my trailer stored in a friends barn outside of town and I'd go and get it the night before a race and leave it in front of the house overnite but I'd be gone by 6am...wasn't good enuf for my asshole neighbour...[link]

  • Scoobum: So when I got a fucked up with diabetes a few years back I went out and bought a bicycle to burn off my blood sugar as it rises overnite. For some reason I can't seem to keep tubes in this damn bike. I go out yesterday and air up the tires. I always set the pressure between the low and high. Take it for a spin ti check everything is working. I go in the shop and crack a beer and set the tire pressures on the motorcycles. I come back out and the back tire is flat. This is my reaction staring at the bike...[link]

  • Steve Wood: You better break out a tub of water and see where it's going. Either you have some little stickers embedded in the tire or that cat has some accomplices
    May 14 2024, 09:19:32 AM
  • Scoobum: Got it in the sink an it's leaking from the valve stem and a hole in it as well. I checked the tire and nothing. Even the rubber band around the rim is that covers the spoke is in good shape. The valve is one of those new ones that you need an adaptor for. Gonna trash it and grab a tube with a normal valve.
    May 14 2024, 09:29:59 AM
  • wmsonta: latex tubes go out of range low in a few days. Butyl tubes take a couple of weeks. Pesta valves are a PITA.
    May 14 2024, 10:43:28 AM
  • wmsonta: pesta (presta) valves are engineered to seal tight with pressure. Once the tire pressure gets low enough, they will go completely flat. They really shouldn't be checked outside the tire.
    May 14 2024, 11:55:10 AM
  • Scoobum: You're correct. Trying to air tires up with those valves are something else. I got a replacement tube today and opened the box to make sure it had the old school valve. Bike is ready to rock!

  • nocooler: It’s more like the backend needs patched. I’ve talked to Mark about it, I don’t have the time nor the desire to work on anything technology related anymore.This time it’s php/db and forum software that need to be brought inline. The forum software is a full version release and not compatible with any of the plugins we currently run.
    May 16 2024, 07:17:30 PM
  • nocooler: Unfortunately forums are drying up and everything is moving toward Facebook/reddit/discord as they take a lot of the backend administration away
    May 16 2024, 07:39:28 PM
  • SuperSix: Funny, I thought about just setting up a Facebook group.
    May 16 2024, 10:38:20 PM
  • Scoobum: The problem with FB is if you post anything that doesn't follow the leftist agenda, you're gone. I'm on FB, but I just use it for buying selling on Marketplace.

  • Scoobum: Changing the wiper blades on my 2021 Silverado work truck before I head to Temagami. Do the expensive ones last any longer than the cheap ones.
    May 17 2024, 04:52:21 AM
  • ULYCYC: I think Reddit and Discord are geared to High school brats looking to hook up.  Most of us will get in trouble trying to hook up
    May 17 2024, 06:44:03 AM
  • Steve Wood: I like Bosch Icons. Last longer and usually do a bettercjob
    May 17 2024, 10:18:06 AM
  • nocooler: Wiper blades have a huge retail mark up. I order them in bulk on rockauto they are usually under $5 a piece
    May 17 2024, 10:22:21 AM
  • nocooler: As much as I hate Facebook, I think a group would work. Sure we are in their sandbox and have to play by their rules.
    May 17 2024, 10:43:43 AM
  • nocooler: While Brads concerns are valid - this isn’t a political forum, stay on or near topic and you won’t have issues.

  • Scoobum: Wish Elon would buy FB, Youtube and Google.
    May 17 2024, 05:19:45 PM
  • Scoobum: Alright, out to start packing the truck cuz i'm outta here to the wilds of Temagami for 5 days Monday at 7am.
    May 18 2024, 08:15:24 AM
  • Scoobum: Let's see if I can get up there without getting a flat. I've popped more tires up there than you can shake a stick at...and I've got the gnarliest mud/snow tires on this truck you can possibly imagine. Lug pattern is so aggressive it deafens you at highway speeds.
    May 19 2024, 06:38:01 AM
  • Scoobum: Pretty much what I did to get my daughter in the mornings to get her to high school. I was fair...but tough as nails. She says to this day she got her work ethic from me...[link]
