I thought everyone knew fuel gauges aren't to be trusted. Isn't that common knowledge?

HA! If I'd stuck with, I'm-a-pretty-girl-I-can't-get-dirty limit when I was like, 6, There are a lot of things today that might still be working. But there are also a lot of things that wouldn't be working. How the hell else are you going to figure anything out?



You don't have any Orange Juice though, I drank all that.





I hate to be the one who has to point this out but I think Tex was making fun of you. I can't believe he would do that!



I think we have this one covered in the picture thread...
No, I was being serious. If he's going to get into gunsmithing 1911s, a trigger job would be a good thing to know how to do.

Decided to chance fate today and fired the hog and headed for the sugar shack.
Sugar shack is a shop in a backyard owned by a guy known as Gator , no description needed . Few others there drinkin beer fixing ride and shootin the chit.
I roll up and park and one of them spotted my judge and a group came over to check it out .
Rear tire spotted and the crowd went wild .
Bo' you got a pair on you , I woodant ride that maypop down the drive way .

Long story short , my bike got hijacked in the shop where they proceeded to put a used tire on the rear .
Bikers are right good folks too , the tire we put on has tread but some bad splits and I am more scared of that one than the old one with nothing but steel , but I did not want to seem like a stuck up dick head , Guess i will order one this week

We dip tanks all the time. I had a moment today. Salesman sold a truck, guy came to pick it up, salesman said oh you have a quarter tank you should make it to Spanish Fork no problem. Guess who gets a call to go get fuel and get that truck running in the snow when the guy runs that truck out of fuel. This girl.

Me: How much fuel was in it?

Salesman: Well the gauge read 1/4

Me: You didn't dip the tanks?

Salesman: No, the gauge said it was 1/4

I think he missed the point...

So I made him go with me

i'd have made the idiot go by himself and learn a lesson. i have seen this happen many times in the past.
