  1. I agree with that. He was a senator from 1973 till 2009 and of course VP for two terms. His time on the judiciary committee alone speaks to many many accomplishments. His actions against violent crimes and the tax relief acts he helped pioneer are also huge accomplishments. I am not sure which metrics have stated he has accomplished very little. As has Trump. The difference here is that I see Biden being able to keep an open mind where if you were to ask Trump he would basically tell you that this was his idea all along even though he said something different a couple weeks ago. Biden will also not tell you that in two weeks something is going to change where Trump seems to think everything happens in two weeks. After those two weeks nothing has happened other than some other distraction Trump has created. Flip flopping seems to be some sort of accusation but when has anybody had a change of direction or motive? That is human nature. We can't get any consistency out of Trump. This is referring to Trump? I think its probably with any politician you can see that. Outside of politics I have to deal with business decisions and when I hear other managers say "Well there is no money to do that" I can see where people don't see the vision. What I mean by this is that any subject matter can cost money. That subject matter has to fit an agenda. When someone who is in control of money has an agenda that aligns with the subject matters agenda then the money magically appears. For example they build GasGas trials bikes (for the moment at least). I want a GasGas trials bike. I go out and get my money to spend on a GasGas trials bike. If the money going to a foreign country does not align with the agenda of the country then I am totally on board with holding it back. If it does not align with the agenda of a particular politician then my taxpayer money is now not representing me but the personal interest of a politician. That is taxation without representation. Trump's kids or Biden's? If we are trying to say that Biden's son has done something wrong here then I would take a long look at all of the Trump spawn. Trump and his kids have personal gain conflicts of interest issues like crazy. What were those actions? Trump has been extremely disrespectful to many people. He will tell you that he is a military champion but when asked to prove his actions he can't seem to back it up. Military budget now is less than it was a decade ago. We have less people serving in the military now than a decade ago as well. Biden says we should have a police standard and more education for them which I don't think is horrible. Trump tells cities that their police force is horrible if they don't align with his politics. I am not from Michigan. I moved here to follow an industry that I am passionate about. I do live and work here now but also travel around this country and other countries as well. --Biff
  2. So kids that eat tide pods are "wack jobs" but a president of a country who suggests similar to a world wide audience is not? No one is going to change your mind here and that's ok. To down play people from other countries with alternative ideas or solutions is not the america I am a citizen of although seems like its becoming the louder voice. No one has to be born here to know right or wrong. No one has to agree blindly to be right or wrong. Your religion doesn't mean you are correct or incorrect. Trump wants it his way or the highway and loves to point blame. I see similarities with the tide pod reference. Wack job indeed. --Biff
  3. pronounced ... sourey... no worries EH! --Biff
  4. That is a truth right there. Traveling the world and working with world economies I can see that Americans are hinged on this culture we can't be wrong and will never fail. Well frankly many of us are flawed and if we don't listen we won't get any further ahead. The perception from afar is that we don't have a cultural norm other than being self centered. Other cultures have their own values which don't align with the US. Germans were implanted with an anti jay walking gene and must not drive in the left lane unless you are overtaking. Many Asian countries think spitting in public is totally cool. Mexicans are perfectly ok with living in tacked together housing. Canadians will apologize for almost anything. Many in the US don't align with others in the US. I grew up in a culture of please and thank you, yes mam and yes sir, I appreciate and am thankful. I was not forced to do this and I wouldn't force others to follow my values. I don't think this is self centered however I do believe in that being a good person, neighbor and overall citizen means that good people will be in my life. Just because I don't understand a culture does not mean I have a right to make fun of it or force my culture down someone else's throat. What this country is living with is a leader who is exactly what you said "self centered in their own ideals and will not compromise or surrender their lifestyle". He doesn't care about me or my family based on his actions. He doesn't think he works for the citizens unless we agree with everything he says. If you oppose him you are given a label. He calls the people who put him there terrorist and agitators. This is not a leader. I know bad people and this man is one of them. Kindness is not a sign of weakness. --Biff
  5. That just means its time to re-arch the pan. —Biff
  6. Txt editions have a crank case bottom end drain plug for this. Remove the skid plate and the plug is on the bottom of the big end. Wish others did this... —Biff
  7. There used to be a great trial on hunter mountain. Grand parents lived in boiceville. Jim is an amazing resource out of oneonta. —biff
  8. Welcome! Check out the group from 3d and d4. Growing up in Caz myself you have a ton of people in your neighborhood that are trials enthusiast. Between tryals shop and those two groups you should be all sorted. —Biff
  9. Hey have you all been hearing about corduroy pillow cases? No? Weird! They've been making headlines! --Biff

  11. Well you are going to have to look. Clutch baskets from this era were known to wear grooves in themselves where the plates ride. That can cause the plates to stick and suddenly break free. With this home made bushing idea it really caused a delay / slack feeling transitioning from coast to accel. 3 and a half years later its still working for me. --Biff
  12. That is a bad water pump seal. If you didn't change out the water pump shaft that rides on that seal then it would also cause the leak. It is the only place on a pro that water can get from the coolant into the transmission. The shaft can wobble if the brass bushing holding the shaft is enlarged as well. --Biff
  13. These Michigan boys are really tearing it up these days! Woot Frankenmuth! --Biff
  14. @feetupfun I am just about to transfer a set of Arkon rims from a TY250L mono over to my Ty175. I want to go with the tubliss 2nd gen system when I do this with a set of Dunlop 803GP tires. My main reason was to use the forks on this one but why not go all out right? I am interested in the grove you are speaking of (pics?). Is this just roughing up the bead area so it sticks? As i read this you are still running a tube with a tubeless tire right? Currently i am running a new IRC tubeless reject on my standard ty175 rim with a tube but gotta love those gold rims so this is going to happen. --Biff
