How Long Will It Take Me To Realize The Battery Is Dead?

https://youtu.be/qu6OISRsXL4 Turn On Already?! When it is really cold out I use some Oxford hand warmers the missus got me for my birthday. They are awesome, but I also have to remember to turn them off!  Luckily a coworker had a portable jump starter. Was up and running after a few minutes. Was too embarrassed…

Nailed

One of the things that is recommended to carry with you on a motorcycle is a tire plug kit. I’ve been carrying one in my bag for over a year with hopes of never having to use it. The kit comes with plugs, tools to insert the plug into the hole caused by a nail…

I am also getting a tan, which I’m not to found of,  but hopefully I’ll be getting a riding jacket which help with that and with safety if I take a fall.

Drive Thru On The Grom

So, during the work week, I drive thru a lot. I’ve been going over different options to carry my food back home. My backpack would probably squash my food. I saw some cargo nets online so I picked one up at Walmart. A Coleman MadDog for $4. I think it might work.
