  1. OK, The East Rules...

    Darn. I thought this was to be about the Atlantic Seaboard.
  2. What is your favorite sandwich?

    It's a tie between the Reuben and the bagel with lox/onion/cream cheese/capers!! Edit: will have to try with tomato next time!
  3. General questions on Credit Ratings

    From the WSJ, October 21, 2019:
  4. DUNKIN’ DONUTS permanently closing 800 locations across the U.S.

    I used to do four mugs a day. I cut back to two mugs a day and then wound up developing GERD. It took me four days to quit: One mug, one half a mug, one quarter, one quarter, and done. I've had maybe seven cups of coffee over the last ten years. (GERD caused the worst pain I have ever...
  5. covid hits home for me

    Sad to hear. My best wishes to friends and family.
  6. Just another thing to watch out for when riding (motorcycle)

    Apologies for the thread drift: @SpencerT if you live near an off-road riding area, consider a dual-sport; you could potentially spend many happy hours - alone or.with family - riding off-road. Definitely no cages!
  7. NES Motorcycle ride?

    I'd be interested, though the route is probably going to be jam-packed full of cages. I'd definitely be interested in an alternate route, plus if you take I-95 to get there you'll probably go right past my neighborhood.
  8. Non-Cruiser motorcycle riders?

    Forgot to change the blinker fluid?
  9. work or worked at an auto dealership?

    You raise a good point - The financials that I see are for the department as a whole, and not for individual vehicles... and there've been many news articles about how truck sales have the highest margins. I'd posit that your dealer simply knows that they can sell that vehicle to someone else...
  10. work or worked at an auto dealership?

    I've seen the financial statements of many dealerships. The margins on vehicles and parts are slim. It is, indeed, the service department that generates the most gross profit.
  11. Legal ethics question

    Over the last twenty years of my career I've examined probably tens of thousands of commercial and residential loans that have had title insurance. Not once have I ever seen a title insurance policy pay out. (Edited for grammar.)
  12. Non-Cruiser motorcycle riders?

    After spending a few hours today at a buddy's house, the Accord came home wearing a trailer hitch, which means U-Haul trailer rentals (all of $15/day), which means track days this year! Yaaaahhoooo!!!
  13. Monkey From Tewksbury

    Whatever fits in a banana clip, I suppose.
  14. Happy Birthday Pac Man

    In 1978, I used $80 of my paper route money to buy a console that had four (four!!) variants of Pong. Pac Man was high tech stuff - it had colors. Edit: But no door knobs....
  15. Evidence of a Parallel Universe Detected by NASA

    The whole backwards-time conjecture hinges on the notion that the atmospheric particle showers that ANITA detected were caused by tau neutrinos. However, Wellen Carvalho of Oklahoma Baptist University "conclude[d] that a ντ [tau neutrino] origin of these events would imply a neutrino flux at...
  16. Poorly Running John Deere X370 Lawn Tractor

    My boss once gave me his old snowthrower when he upgraded. Said it would only run with the choke on. When I fired it up for the first time, gas was spewing out of the rotted fuel line. I'm surprised he didn't incinerate himself.
  17. Odd Linkedin request

    Some recruitment scams try to get you to send a resume hoping there's enough data on it to facilitate ID theft. Be very cautious.
  18. Non-Cruiser motorcycle riders?

    I run the same setup, but it bumps my small-ish tank bag with the bars to the left and bumps the fairing with the bars to the right. Has held my phone tightly, but my wife's was too small. (2012 Ninja 1000.)
  19. Non-Cruiser motorcycle riders?

    I've done track days with Tony's, BostonMoto, and Penguin. I found TTD to be the most noob-friendly. Penguin was heavily oriented to racing and racers, with BoMo in the middle.
  20. Non-Cruiser motorcycle riders?

    I'll be diagnosing a problem with the forks on the track bike (CBR600RR) and then going out for a ride (ZX1000CG).
