What to do with my 2 dollars?

I decided on this...





I stopped at a garage sale on my way home from work and saw these. I asked how much. Guy responded back "A buck each". Best 2 buck I think I have spent at a garage sale ever.

Also picked up a 100' 14ga extension cord for 2 bucks (and it works!) And a 5 gallon VP racing fuel jug for 4 bucks. This was a good stop

Nick is a great rider and instructor. I spent a weekend with him in Vegas at Freddie School about a decade ago. That should be a good read.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Plus tip!
