Just remember to end each tale with a stern: "Not that I approve of such behavior, mind you."

Small, low-yield thermonuclear device. Very fast, very boiled.

Well, if you've got extra Neutrons laying-about doing nothing, you might as well put them to SOME kind of use, eh?

I use heavy water to power my immortal Concours. It gets amazing mileage and will even get stains out of fabrics.

Give your eight-year-old a small bucket of water attached to a string and let him spin it round. He feels the inertial forces pulling the bucket away from him, and it's hard to hold on. When he lets go, the bucket flies off in the direction it was going in at the instant he let go. Now explain that a bike in a corner wants to do the same as the bucket, to keep going in a straight line - and leaning into the corner creates a 'falling-inwards' force (good old gravity) which exactly counterbalances the outward force he felt in the string. There you are: physics for eight-year-olds.

You could just take him waterskiing or wake boarding.



That would work too.

I wound up with a set of Pilot Roads on the ol' Bandito Sunday, I was going to get Strada's but the price turned out to be within like $20. so I got the Michelins. So far I've got about 450 miles on them WITH NO WEAR AT ALL!!!!!!!



I think they might hold up pretty well......



If I only got 2k miles from a set of tires on a bike I'd drop a match in the tank and report it stolen, brew, no sh*t
