    Collet Mic ??

    So while we are talking about communicators, I need a set for the Oxygen helmets I just bought for her and me. (For some reason I still feel the need to get yelled at while riding. lol) Royal is selling Cardo. I've heard good things bout Uclear and Sena. So what do I buy? Leaning towards Uclear for the Mic less design.

  3. My stomach turns just looking at the pics. Guess I won't be sending in my resume.
  4. Same here. But I haven't owned a new truck in over 30 years. I just can't wrap my head around the depreciation these trucks suffer in the first 3 years. My buddy bought an F150 Limited 2 years ago. He said once he bought the winter wheel package and a couple accessories, he was $86k out the door.

    Housing market

    That's been common practice here for several years. They will list a starter for $399k and sell in the $450-500 range. They post the sign on the yard with "Coming Soon" a week before the actual listing goes up. It will sell in less than a week, most often over a weekend. Very few starters coming to market now as the big boom was 2-3 years ago.
  6. Poured rain here and up through District 9 last night still raining now. Thats why we jumped in the truck yesterday morning and trailered up to Markdale. We did the loop up to Owen Sound, Meaford, Walters Falls and back. It was raining within 10 minutes of us getting on the road home. It was thin in the bush trails as it was. It will be all mud after last nights rain. It was good to get out and get the first ride in but the future weather looks shitty for riding anything close to home.

    Neil Peart died

    Love the Hip but (talent wise) they were a fraction of Rush. The Hip was a Canadian success story, Rush was international. My Top Canadian bands. 1. Rush 2. Tragically Hip 3. Blue Rodeo 4. April Wine 5.Niel Young

    Poor Ozzy

    Hard to believe that stuff was radical in its day. I asked for a shirt one year for Christmas and Mom went downtown to The Rock Shop which was our local place for concert shirts, black light posters and dope smoking paraphernalia. She was good Mom.

    Poor Ozzy

    I always felt Ozzy's music took a down turn after Rhoads' death. I was 15 when Blizzard of Ozz came out in 1980. I still remember the first time hearing Crazy Train like it was yesterday. His songs pushed me toward Heavy Metal as up to that point I'd mostly been listening to top 40 pop songs. I found Black Sabbath as I looked for more Ozzy. As much as I like the old Sabbath stuff, it still pales to Ozzy for me since I was hearing it in reverse I guess. I think he is a great character. Wish I'd gone to see him on stage. I had tickets a few years ago and through my back out the day before the
