I have read that alot of service men/women in Iraq would like ballistic eye glasses, don't know how to find them but there only $39.00 each. If anyone can find them I will donate 2 pairs!!!!

Who can I hand my stuff over to tonight at strats?

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment

I doubt I will make it this week and I'll be on vacation out of town the following Wednesday. I can make arrangements to meet someone somewhere if they have something to send off to these guys. Let me know folks, Im going to wrap this up soon.

Thanks

Some great ideas guys, Iím definitely in. But first we should figure out how many ppl and what size packages we can send and then we can better plan how to fill them and what items to send, so we donít end up sending to many of the same item or stuff that is not going to make it there. Those guys deserve it.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

since this thing deleted most of my posts, i figured i should put this one down again...

when sending care packages, try not to send any boxes bigger than 5-7lbs... anything too big will get noticed by the dudes who handle the mail and generally be received mysteriously opened or simply outright disappear... multiple care packages also guards against this by ensuring more are on the way if one gets lost... just mix the packs up so they're all about the same thing... for kicks, mail them out at the same time and see how staggered they arrive...

Looking forward to helping you guys send out some care package love. People just don't realize how awesome it is to receive packages from your friends and family when your over in that shitty desert/shitty mountainous hellhole.

When shipping something, use flat rate box. It will be cheaper. Coffee is a great idea. I loved digging through care package to find a bag of Starbucks.

You don't even know how much that will be appreciated I went thru a lot of coffee when I was over there. As a matter of fact, I might order few bags from ya before I leave again in June so I can put them in my c-bag

Its been a while, I sold my 2 bikes before I left for Iraq last time. I missed riding so much, I wanted to get some more info on the new bikes before I come home and get one and I remembered this site.

We could use some cycle magazines, any racing/stunting dvds, coffee, pics of diffrent bikes(so we can hang in the office and room to make it feel more like home) and Bic lighters(they sell cheep ones here that work only one time).

I should be home by the beginning of summer, so I need to do my research on bikes while im here. I am looking at going with another GSXR, but I cannot decide between the 09 750 or 09 1000. Is there any light you can shed on both of the bikes.

Thanks again, I will be checking in from time to time.

Ladies and Gents!
Im going to be putting together a box for Nick.
Please let me know if you have magazines for Nick. Something that shows all of the '09 models? No sticky pages!!

Nick - PM me an address to get some stuff to you.
Are you a coffee drinker?
What else do you need?
We'll fill up the box.
