Contrast the above with abshipp's plane parking.

We could park side-by-side in the driveway, but Mrs GeneJockey seems to have lost the ability to park so as to leave space for my car.

I'm scheduled to get both a COVID booster (2nd) and Shingles vaccine this afternoon. I'm curious how that will work out for me.

I mistakenly thought from the picture that he, too, was having pain, a fit problem, so I dispensed some advice. He took exception with this and told me his bike was perfect. What could I say?

He is becoming known.

Gas here > $6/gal.; if you drive here, it will cost a lot more to drive back.

My convos with Bill sure improved after the second booster. My personality has become magnetic as well.

I have 15 bikes in half of my garage. They are on a raised floor I built with ventilation, and then a moisture barrier (plastic tarp) then the wooden floor. This means I can totally cover then with a tarp, and moisture will not come up from the concrete. They never get damp. ...............................well............almost never........It doesn't work if I pull the car in the garage with lots of snow on it. :(

Coffee stop on todays ride. I would have gotten a picture of the coffee, but Whyfi finished his while my ice coffee didn’t fill itself.

There’s a story there but not worth telling.

Did your iced coffee not come sweetened? I didn't know that was a thing until I ordered one at Starbucks a few years ago. That fist gulp came back out rather violently.

I believe he dislocated his shoulder in a crash. Might be in some pain tomorrow. It was a fun race to watch.

You guys are bragging about parking in a thread with a photo of a plane in someone's driveway?

I drink my coffee black.


No the wanna be college kids working the shop didn’t make my coffee after I ordered it. Three customers came after me and got their coffee, while I am standing around like an idiot. The “baristas” wouldn’t even look at me, finally I went up and asked if I needed to go back behind the counter and get it myself. The response was, I thought the other girl got it. Then why the **** am I standing here stairing at you with no ice coffee in my hand if the other girl made it!!!!!!

Thankfully not an issue here.

They just wanted more time to stare at your bike shorts padded booty. Your demanding self ruined their hopes and dreams.

called air parks. They are all over the place. Used to flight instruct at one in Bull Head City Az.

Dream used to be to live at one, but flying for a living has kind of soured that idea. Last thing I want to do when I get off work is look at a plane.


I also never got my A&P and do not want to pay for an annual inspection or oil change or anything related to MX.

I think my sweaty self insulted them. Prolly hoping I would just eventually leave if I was ignored.

While my 4 cylinder [car] has more horsepower [but is probably heavier], it looks like the ailerons on the plane are operated via Shimano Dura-Ace brake cables that darkened over time.
