mine hears half of what I say and then argues my exact point ....

 

  I guess we agree, then.

Mornin' folks

 

 I got quite a compliment yesterday.  My wife's secretary asked ME to cook something for her. People fly this woman around to cook for them. She regularly goes to HI and AK.  Either some spaghetti or my "famous" [not my words] enchiladas.

 

 had to make two trips to the store this AM. Got everything but what I went for the 1st trip... tobacco got left behind.  Was talking to the owner. Found out that not only do we have a guy in breach clout, but 2 guys that wear kilts. Was teasing that one of the other owners [Roger] was going to grow his hair and beard and start wearing a sarong when he retires.

 

kittens are bouncing...  Wish I could go that hard and sleep so well. I almost think the one has narcolepsy. When she gets tired, she sleeps where she is. a lot of times, in the middle of the floor.

A big day for this retiree yesterday.  A hair cut at 9am then to the tire store for 4 Michelin Pilot Sport A/s 3+ on the 2012 Z4 35is.  Much better ride than the stock run flats.  Down side.......removing the goo that holds the weights for balancing.  4 applications of Goo Gone and patience.

Furthermore, the logo’d spandex clad Pillsbury Doughboys don’t think the traffic laws apply to them.  They feel they can transition from “pedestrian” to traffic at their whim, which makes it hard for drivers and responsible riders.

Exactly the way it is around here. I do my very best to give bicyclist extra space and be cautious but some of them make it very difficult

Also did they quit teaching that you walk towards traffic while walking on the shoulder of a road.

I travel a busy state highway and kids with headphones on walking with traffic are clueless.

A new set of tires does wonders for the ride of almost any vehicle especially those dang run flats.

Isn't it amazing how many people get hit while walking along the side of the street? At least a couple a week, and half of them the driver doesn't stop.

My brother was an engineer for Michelin.  He told me that rubber never stops curing.  As the tires age they get harder and harder and eventually they start to disintegrate.

They'd be takin off that goo not moi!  Told my guys here they were my Indy pit crew LONG ago and there would be NO second opportunity.  We STILL laff about it and I've never had a problem.  They're all darn good though so that helps.  For the price of those tires that goo would be gone before I ever drove away.

Sometimes it is better to do some things yourself.

The tire store guy might just think a torch would take that goo right off.

Plus if your retired what else you got to do?

Could the rubber fare better now with the nitrogen that does not permeate the tires in them?

Love that stuff, still check the pressure the first of each month like I always have. I just don't go outside with my pocket full of quarters anymore!

It doesn't matter what it's filled with, the rubber never stops curing.  The outside is exposed to regular air anyway.

3M adhesive remover or Acrysol would make short work of the glue/adhesive.  Just be sure you scrape the wheel with a hard plastic tool as opposed to anything metal.

Me too. Not sure how much I was pushing the LS... but 1/2 volume [on a 65W/ch] is getting loud.  Some music begs to be cranked up.

Well if it's imported it must be better ? :huh:

Na, anyway it's better to fill them with a mix of acetylene and oxygen, this way when you have a blowout you and other cars around you can hear it much better and get out of the way plus it will wake up anyone sleeping in the car so they can hold on.

65W at half volume is not even close to 32 W, you would be deaf, or deafer might be better. Your probably scaring off critters.
