You ought to look into the fluid do it now, I've been paddling it for a couple years, had it in class 4 with no problems. I have a solid roll but prefer to be wet when paddling

Let me know how the airflow is on those!

Time to buy some carpet cleaner! My coonhound just turned 1, so glad to be out of that puppy stage.

And I broke down and ordered a avg k3 to replace my avg skyline. Went with their M/L size instead of L. Such a great fit. Internal visor helmets spoiled me.

Thanks! Pretty stoked, for sure.

Found a good little puppy crate for her yesterday on CL--turns out the seller's kid went to the same tiny school as my daughter (like, class size of 6 in a town of 70,000). Random! But also kind of killed the possibility of negotiating. Ah well. Still a deal.

It's really only going be used the first month or so, while I take the brand-new puppy on a road trip to our family cottage in north Ontario, CN. We'll also get a larger GSD-size 42-48" crate, too.

Now we just need to find a walker to come to the house and take her out for an hour a day starting in August. And hope our 9-year-old GSD takes a liking to her...

Finally got a ride in with them, you can definitely feel the air flow from the perforations between the fingers at interstate speeds.

My jacket is a more relaxed fit (Scorpion "all in") and the gauntlets just fit under the sleeves, they feel like they would be awkward going over anything that wasn't a tighter sport fit cuff.

They get a long run test tomorrow

JD^2 model 3:





I'm also doing 2100 sq ft of bamboo flooring, all of it at 45° angles, so I got one of these:



It's super easy to use and makes everything much faster than the old Delta miter saw I've had lo these many years.

Lease or buy? Curious how long she owned the first 2, and any issues that might have popped up?

Toe box is snug, even at a euro 50/US 14 but didn't scrape anything today and they're braking in quickly enough. Amazed I got them for 241 USD shipped from the UK and they were 295 over here and none in a euro 50.

We buy them. The 2005 had a weird cowl shake around 120,000 miles, the 2009 was pretty good. 150,000 and it started to tell you lights were out when they worked. Just a few sets of brakes as well. No issues with the drive system or even the exhaust. She test drove the IS300 and A4, but decided to stick with the beemer. Personally, I was hoping she would go for the IS.

I came out of the store today and this had attached itself to my truck. I had just lost my old one and wasn't sure I was ready to take on a new relationship yet, so I told it that it couldn't come home with me. I tried to let it down gently but when I went to unhook it I got those the sad deflated tire look. That was it, I caved in and brought it home with me. I just couldn't leave it homeless and it looked so disappointed when I told it no the first time...what else could I do???

We'll be either out on the river or one of the lakes for the maiden voyage...stop on over!!!

The other big purchase has been a complete exterior redo...windows, doors, stone, fascia, gutters, new deck I built myself using existing structure and modified/add other structure as needed, new drive and walkway, new roof going on Monday (roof is getting replaced due to hail damage last month) and new front deck/entry going on in a couple weeks - material already in my garage for that but I've been too lazy, or too worn out from everything else, to get it done yet

Although it's really a re-purchase, my Speed Triple belongs to me again.

Always has been pampered. Sold it to my good buddy. He is downsizing and I wanted it back. Selling my Super Duke R, as I like the triple better.
