Nice, dude!

I'll be picking up my fork seal rebuild kit from the post office and my boots from the motorcycle shop today, so I'm pretty excited about that. I am not excited, however, about rebuilding the forks and installing the new seals. I think I may just take it to a shop and let them handle it to the tune of $200. It sounds worth not dealing with possibly getting oil everywhere or not getting the forks lined up just right...

Nice, I'm jealous. I want to get a rider just to cut down the amount of time it takes me to mow though I really have no actual need for it. Would just rather spend 15 minutes mowing than an hour.

Well the key to having kids is to make enough money to support them and buy all the toys.

The first kid is expensive, you have to go to a family health plan, buy all the baby proofing, car seats, toys, gadgets ect. The second and third you just feed and clothe, plus by your second you have met other parents and now have a huge source for used clothes to get from.

My wife takes advantage of all of the local and online consignment sales to help our kid budget. The online ones turn the sales you make into credit on the site, and as a consignor at the local sales she gets early access and a discount.

Bought this tail bag back on October 8th. It just now flew out from China, so it should be here in another week or so.





I like the rear-sloping taper design of it. I'm sure it's just barely large enough to fit, say, a pair of shoes, but it at least gives me some extra storage space. I wish I could find a compatible tank bag for my tank cover. Top Sellerie is the cover brand, but I cannot find any of the bags with the clips on them so I can mount it to the cover.

The cover has two clips on the front and two loops on the rear, closer to the seat. It looks like the bag would have a strap run through the loops and two rings at the front to connect to the clips. Oh well... can't have everything, I guess.

I just purchased best robot vacuum cleaner for pet hair from an online eCommerce website indoor2outdoor. Actually, I never use that kind of cleaner yet. But for house I have used irobot, roomba, dyson vacuum cleaners.

My father bought an Oregon battery-powered chainsaw. It rips through wood like a hot knife through butter. I made quite a few cuts with it last time I was over there and the battery still had some juice left. One thing I noticed is that the chain it had on it seemed to pull larger chunks of wood out instead of creating a fine sawdust. Not sure if that's "more efficient" or what, but it chewed through larger stuff with no issue.

Yeah I was looking into battery powered ones as I have an Ego trimmer and a couple batteries already, their saw is very highly rated, but just the saw is $220 and the saw with the larger battery which is apparently needed to get the saws full torque is $299, the Stihl I got was $179.

We are house sitting for my in-laws so not home but this is currently in my yard, my neighbor is supposedly having it taken care of as it fell from his yard, if not the saw will get some use.
