  3. @ykX gets it! I put my deposit down on this 2019 BMW R9T Scrambler with 2900m on the clock. Heated grips, advanced stability control, ABS, cruise, luggage accessories. It has an 1170cc air/oil cooled flat twin boxer engine. The BMW boxer design goes back to the 1920s and was also used in aircraft. As far as bikes go, these are torque monsters for their size, and in fact have a slight issue with twisting under hard throttle. It’s the biggest CC I could buy in a standard bike under 500lbs. which means I can put it on the hitch of the Avalanche without needing a trailer ( though this tr

  4. Congrats @balthazaron the truck order! Happy Christmas everyone, and I hope a healthy and prosperous 2021. We had a white Christmas here with 3 inches falling overnight and another 3 - 4 inches falling until this afternoon. I've already been out with the snow blower and it made quick work of the driveway any my neighbors driveway. Since I wasn't going through 10 - 12 inches of snow this time the battery did all of mine and the neighbors with 60% battery left over. When I was done, I threw one battery on the charger and set an alarm for myself for one hour and then went down a

  5. Please go. No one is stopping you. There's daily nonstop service from PHL by their own Lufthansa and some American carriers as well. Since you are seeming slightly anti-American at this juncture, I recommend Lufthansa. And, since you've never shown much of a penchant for foreign languages on here over the years, you will have one hell of a time learning to communicate in German.

  6. @ocnblu is the best at this. He got the Avalanche too. 2017 Chrysler 300C, AWD, white with the linen interior. CarPlay, heated/ventilated seats, pano sunroof, adaptive cruise with lane keep assist. 18,700 miles for $24k

  7. @ocnblu Got it. 3G is the first two digits of the VIN. 3 is country code Mexico and G is for GM. So it was a Mexican built GM and there were only two of those on the list, the Avalanche and the EXT. While I wouldn't have said no to an EXT, an Avalanche popped up that I couldn't NOT buy. So, I have bought what is likely the lowest mileage 2013 Avalanche in the country. All the paperwork and loan has been finalized, I just have to pick it up on Wednesday. It's a Blue Topaz 2013 LTZ Black Diamond with only 12,800 miles on the clock. I paid $32,990 and Carvana gave me $8,100 for the Cruz

  9. @USA-1 your strong immune system could very well be your undoing if you were to catch Covid. Many of the young healthy people who died did so because their immune system over reacted and flooded their lungs with mucus and inflamed air passages too much in an attempt to fight the virus. You are correct that mRNA vaccines have not been widely used like this before, but they are not untested. The vaccine itself is out of your system within a few days of each shot, removed by your immune system. While using mRNA is a new technique for creating immune response, that’s where the nove

  11. Lease ended on 2018 Pacifica. Apart from looking at the Traverse and Enclave, made the seriously easy decision to re-up on a 2021 Pacifica Limited all wheel drive. Ridiculous incentives made it possible for a great deal, and we totally loved our 2018. Sorry GM but your GM Card top off was not much extra incentive. 20 INCH wheels on a van? Thank you STELLANTIS.

  12. So, you're not wrong, but just wanted to zoom in a bit for more detail.... Storms do happen, no grid is ever 100%. I lose power shockingly often for being only ~10 miles from a downtown metro area, but never for more than a few hours. The worst power outage we had was for a few days when a car took out a key power pole with multiple transformers on it down at the bottom of my street and they couldn't get replacement transformers (Thanks Covid!). No regulation could have prevented that. I appear to be on the edge of a local grid, so it seems like I don't have redundancy. There have been

  13. Right now, I have Florida on the brain. So, when I think of glass, I think of glass block, seen often in Miami Beach. I also think of this song, "Heart of Glass" ... one of her "top 3:" Then, as I was posting, a strange coincidence occurred to me. From what I know, Deborah Harry (Blondie) is native to Miami but, upon being adopted as an infant, was raised in New Jersey.

  15. So my dream car was Shelby GT350. I always loved Mustangs but when I saw GT350 I fell in love. Few weeks ago a test drove used 2016 GT350 and it was amazing, everything reviewers say about it is true and the live sound of Voodoo engine is simply amazing, youtube videos don't do it justice. Unfortunately, even a somewhat beat up 2016 GT350 was a bit of a stretch for my finances. Considering I read that some of the earlier 2016-2017 cars had some engine issues I was afraid buying one out of the warranty. And the newer one with warranty was firmly out of my budget. So I decided to go for th

  16. 2021 goals. I feel blessed: I have a great family, house, job and now a car I have been dreaming about for a very long time. Things are slow at work and I hope we don't have layoffs. My goal for this year is to keep all that and enjoy it. Sometimes it is hard to appreciate what you have but I definitely do appreciate and value what I have.

  19. I learned a long time ago to not read Facebook comments as they are generally from people who are unhinged and/or without a firm grasp on reality. A bunch of keyboard warriors who can barely make the payment on their '15 Malibu are not Cadillac's target market. If Cadillac makes a product with a powertrain equal or greater than Tesla and actually puts some style back in their vehicles (unlike the puke worthy stuff they have out now - excepting remaining CT6 and '21 Escalade) then I'll be back in the Cadillac camp.... but they've gotta make the vehicles look GREAT.

  24. Over Labor Day weekend I went to Deep Creek Maryland and rented a cottage on a farm away from the main resort area. Had a nice restful vacation with some hiking and a lot of sleeping in. But we also went to the nearby town of Oakland which has a small transportation museum in it.

  25. coming up on one year. Love this ride. Yes, it's not an SUV..... this rogue little ride has not been getting the use due to COVID and as such, when i purchased almost a year ago to the day as new demo with around 4,000 miles...I am now at only about 12,000 on the odometer. Lots less family travel with father in law passing away and not taking many trips to see mom. But did just get the oil changed at a Buick dealer last week and then drove about 500 miles with it. The gas mileage really took a jump, post oil change. I averaged about 33 mpg over two long legs of the trip and even in town

  29. I parked this car because it had a stuck lifter. Still ran fantastically strong. So 2 weeks ago, after the urging of 2 friends and my son (who loves this car), I rounded up 4 tires that hold air & swapped them on, rolled the car outside, we washed it and started airing out the interior. I used to have mice running around in my shop, so the windows have been closed all these years. Interior got hella moldy. There were still 2 contained mice nests- one in the back seat and one in a cardboard box in the trunk. Minimal activity either way. About 90% of the interior has been cleaned n

  30. I can only speak for me in this case. Doing the monthly (and the monthly/quarterly) numbers was an all-day affair as I would be pulling numbers right as they were being announced (or close to it) and posting them ASAP. It was a lot of work and I would feel quite drained. Since I have started the new job, I really don't have as much time to go do things like - hence why you see me sporadicly post a couple of news stories or the odd review during the week.

The Susquehannock Indians enjoyed bountiful turkey hunting on that hill, hence the name.

  33. This morning did a Garlic test Harvest. So decided to harvest tonight. Almost 200 garlic in the harvest. All laid out to dry in my little green house. Final thing was to harvest the Garlic Greens. Great at being frozen so you can use them year round for making Broth, in pasta, salads, soups, you name it including meat marinades. Cannot go wrong with Garlic, so easy to grow.

  35. I am happy to say that I've had both injections. As soon as it was announced that it would open up, I jumped on 2 retail pharmacy websites and, lo and behold, found an appointment just 2 days away at a location about 1:15 from me. I was ecstatic. I was given Pfizer. Surprisingly, those same retail pharmacies around me were giving Moderna, but this store was giving Pfizer. I was happy about getting Pfizer. Some friends have had some transient side effects from the Moderna. From what I've heard, Pfizer is the one mostly dispensed at hospitals while Moderna is more likely to be d

  42. To put the current electric vehicle market in the harsh light of reality... Tesla is pretty much unilaterally recognized as the #1 EV maker in the world. They are, in fact, WRT volume; Tesla sold a record 367,000 vehicles globally in 2019 (BYD was #2 at 225K units). Some gov't entities (and rabid EV fans) are hoping to see 100% EV products by 2030, or even 2025. Worldwide vehicle production in 2019 was... 65,500,000. That's sixty-five million units. Which means Tesla's global marketshare in 2019 is 0.0056%. 2019 U.S. BEV sales were 242,846. 2019 U.S. total vehicle sales were 16.

  46. Don’t remember if I put a pic of this guy up here. Found him stuck in a bucket, kept him around for 8-9 days while he worked on flight (and grew). Fed him, then weened him off to finding/feeding himself. Near the end, I could call him and he’d bop 30 feet across the ground to me to eat a worm I found. He’d fly to your arm and all. A neat experience.
