Only problem is that when you're stuck in traffic you'll will suffocate with fumes.

Funny you mentioned that. On my way home today I toke a detour though a couple subdivisions that I haven't been through before. I couldn't believe how shitty the streets looked littered with b-ball hoops and not a kid in sight.
In some spots it seemed 3 or 4 in a row skip a few then another 3 and so on. Damn kids don't know how to get along and are spoiled these days.

Sprinkler is genius. Show with the vice grips made me a little sick.

When my loco breaks down, I call someone to report the problem, tilt my ball cap down, and take a nap.

I fixed, with some help of a friend, my R6's foot peg that was missing the return spring with a soda bottle cap to keep it from getting kicked up.
