    I caught your post in the facebook group so I figured I'd eventually have to wander back into the old site. It took a while...I had to find my password LOL

    That's ok shadow, I knew this nurse that not only had her password written on an 8 by 10 sheet of paper over her desk, it also had her login name that apparently she had to write down to remember, it was a complicated formula of her first name and then a dot and then her surname

    How's it going are you riding lots? Black flies are almost done here, mosquitoes are just starting, seen a red headed woodpecker yesterday, that was pretty neat, fishing hasn't been all that great, mostly Bass biting because they know they are out of season, sneaky fish those Bass.

    I had to do that when I had my corporate job, they mandated we change out password every 4-6 weeks or we got locked out. Ad it wasn't just for the desktop, mind you...but for other bits of software as well. I had a post-it taped under my keyboard and every time a username/password needed changing I made a new post-it.

    I'm down to the Rebel for the moment, I ended up waiting two years for my salvage title from the state of Nevada after numerous attempts (re: my VLX fuel pump fire)...more than long enough to warrant yet another carb cleaning. In the meantime I was able to take that title, get a safety inspection, convert the title to a rebuilt title, and register it again. Now I need the time to tear it down (again).

    Yes we do. I'm just not old enough for it yet.

    On the other hand, I paid my house off several years ago so working full time isn't the big deal it used to be. I've been looking for part time jobs but everything out here is either temp/seasonal or on call...nothing guaranteed. So until something falls into my lap I'm doing the 40hr/week grind.

    Nevada will never have a lottery, the casinos don't like competition.

    Wow that's crazy I never thought of it like that, now I feel like I am this really big gambler type

    Riding at a motorcycle scrap yard today if anybody needs some used bike parts, I can watch for them.
