Got tired of the fish bowl look so I had limo tint installed on my truck
Looks good! I had to get my car inspected by the new year, and NYS law now requires a tint meter check. They forced all inspection stations to get tint meters, etc. NYS law says no darker than 70% (which, when factoring in OE tint, it's almost at 70% without any film applied).

Tons of people here take their tint off, get inspected, and have it reapplied. Tint shops run specials and make bank off it.

But, I'm not like those people. I haven't removed my tint since the law took effect 2 years ago. I have a 100% legal NYS sticker. ;)

Crashed my Magna today :x

Leg hurts, but I walked away. And the bike still runs, but it's going to need some work.
Hope all is well man, that stinks.

Thanks you two.

I'm OK, still able to walk around and stuff. Now that I've cleaned my leg off though, I can see an exact print on it of the side of the engine in scabs :scurred:

... Still looking forward to getting to do good auto work with this new garage and new year!

If it makes you feel any better, went down yesterday during a jog and scraped calf, knee, thigh, elbow, both palms and had a piece of asphalt lodged into my right palm. Someone with high beams coming at me and couldn't see a raised driveway



BUT, 10+ years later, I finally got around to taking the moto license class.
I was 1 of 2 perfect evals on the riding portion, but then only got a 92% on the written while everyone else got a 96%. Worst part is I was the only one studying pretty much up until the test and turns out most of the notes weren't even on the test.

And of course I was given the only Honda, let alone the best looking toy they had

Nice! I took the MSF course a few years ago. Everyone passed except one person and we all felt bad because they had to do the walk of shame outta there (we were in the middle of a large parking lot). That being said, she dumped the bike twice and nearly fell off on her final test.

Damn, that sucks but at the same time it'd be hard for me to feel bad at that point.

Ours was reverse, riding first then the written.
Not everyone walked out with their paperwork though. One had a suspended license as of the day prior so she would have to get that resolved before picking up the paperwork (and then paying another $38 to get the license redone again) and the other lost his license somewhere so he just had to get it replaced before picking his up....and then also paying another $38 to get it redone yet again lololol



As for today, did some work on the shitvic.
Put a new slave cylinder on it but didn't bench bleed the master first so working extra hard to get 'er done. Went to the boneyard today to find a master cylinder cap to hack up for our pressure bleeder but the manual car they had was missing the cap. So who knows, may just buy the proper tool tomorrow before going down to Miami.

It’s a long term goal.. RN would take me a few years. Plus I can continue on shift at the fire department and work part time as a nurse. We’ve had a few people go that route and they make bank. They work fire because they like it, but they’re making way more on their days off.

Back from another weekend in Miami

Started Saturday off by heading down and wound up assisting with rolling a Mazda van back onto it's wheels with the help of a few bikers before FHP/EMS/fire/etc could show up.

Today I rode the bike up to the Miami Lambo dealer to see the current inventory. Lost track of how many people were using their phones while driving. Had lunch at the usual spot with the usual mold around the ceiling air vents. On the way back home I stopped to check out a Grom finally, not too sure I want one anymore. Then there was a stop in Naples for sunset. Followed that with a stop at the Bentley/Rolls/Aston dealer on the way out. Checked out the new DB11 & Vantage since a buddy's thinking about leasing one even though the terms are idiotic. They had a couple Superleggera's there and a pair of RR Cullinan's, among a bunch of other "usual" stuff.

Got another email from the new jerb with more deets on what I need along with when & where to report to, etc., 15 more days.

First up is the Mazda. Took this when looking for my gloves.
Climbed inside to shut it off and then a minute or two later we rolled it. Some lady was recording so I'm assuming it's on FB somewhere



Prestige Imports visit



Grom visit. Buddy down there has one of those CBR1000 S1's in the background. Sucker's quick.




Not sure what Porsche you're talking about, but no C8 stuff yet.
The big 3 do test here so I'm assuming it's only a matter of time. Possibly after the public unveiling but then again the C7 ZR1's were here before they unveiled them so who knows.

Recently Lamborghini was also testing the Urus & Aventador SVJ along with what is now the Huracan Evo or whatever it is along with a Spyder version but all in full camo still.
