Nothing new here but I guess it needs to be pointed out since there are always new riders joining the ranks. Always, always, always assume the other driver doesn't see you and keep a couple fingers on the brake lever.



And for god's sake, DON'T COMBINE ALCOHOL (or drugs) WITH RIDING!!!

"...swivelling cup holder."



I could use one of those to hold my morning latte on my 45 mile one way commute to work. Those clutchless shifts are hell on my tranny.

You can pick up those cool swiveling cup holders at your local boating supply joint.

Default Carrying it is one thing, drinking it is another

Drifting ever farther from the thread... I haven't found a drinking device for my ARAI (full-face) like the one on a M43 Gas Mask.



Supposedly they make a 90 degree bite valve for Camelbaks and such, but it seems they'd be a PITA as well.



Any Ironbutts out there have the scoop on how to get that beverage from container to craw without undesirable detours?

"In 69% of cases, helmets were found to be effective at preventing or reducing the

severity of head injury." Hm...interesting. I wonder what % of smoking or being overweight induces health problems. Good thing they don't try and require us to fix those aye....

That won't work!



My aquarium is wired for 220. The fish are REALLY lively, although their eyes bug out more than I think they should.
