  1. Need help identifying a motorcycle (pic)

    Just an update - I didn't get the bike. Also, it wasn't the Yamaha we thought. It was a modified Harley Fatboy. (Who woulda thunk it?)
  2. Need a Concept artist

  3. Need help identifying a motorcycle (pic)

    Apparently, there is time before the auction starts to walk around and check everything out, sort of get a feel for the items you want to bid on. As I said in my OP, I'm not as knowledgable as I'd like to be about bikes. But I'm curious what I can look for on this bike, as far as a "once-over" for functionality. I'll check mileage, of course. But crank 'er up, check for smoke? Leaks? Listen to the idle? Thanks in advance,
  4. Need help identifying a motorcycle (pic)

    Quote:Original post by Strider_Hiryu Looks like an old honda bike. You just want a bike for riding, or you lookin' for something fast? Just for riding, and something not too large. It indeed looks like either a drag star or road star. But you're right - the bike has been heavily modified, and it's difficult to tell. These drug seizure auction bikes typically go for about 2-3k, which, based on my research, is an excellent deal. I just fear the guy they repo'd it from will see me out riding around town and come after me :)
  5. I'm not too knowledgable about motorcycles, but I've the chance to pick this bike up for very cheap (at a drug seizure auction this coming weekend). LINK to Picture Can anyone help me identify the motorcycle? Much thanks in advance, and regards,
  6. Coffee, Part II (No Starbucks Allowed)

    Quote:Original post by Razorguts ...roast ymy own [coffee]...It's a much better cup of coffee (fresh!) Quote:Original post by Extrarius Maybe so, but it's also WAY more expensive once you factor in the time it takes to prepare. It's also much more convenient to just pick up something at the grocery store {when already there getting other items, of course} It is absolutely more economical to roast your own. Furthermore, the time to prepare is fairly negligible. Consider the following: I buy ~25lbs of raw coffee beans @ ~$4.50/lb, then pay ~$1/lb on shipping. This amount of coffee lasts ~1year, providing me several cups of coffee almost daily. So my annual "coffee budget" is ~$135. Assuming I make 3 cups/day the size of a Starbucks "grande", this comes to 12 cents per cup. (Didn't someone say a grande is just under $2 at Starbucks?) Go to a grocery store, you'll pay closer to $6-8/lb + tax for low quality coffee. Or, if you're the starbucks type, more like $8-10/lb + tax. This is for roasted coffee, which is likely over a week old. By the time the purchaser rations it out and makes coffee from it, it's several weeks old. So buying roasted coffee at Starbucks brings my coffee budget to ~$273 (assuming 9.25% sales tax in TN, where I live). I won't even consider what the annual coffee budget is for folks who buy coffee daily on a per-cup basis at Starbucks. Suffice it to say, this would be the most expensive of all 3 scenarios. Regarding the convenience factor: roasting coffee is as easy as pouring some beans into a roaster, turning a dial, then coming back to get it when it's done (the same applies for grinding coffee). If you're the cheap type, you can use a popcorn hot-air popper (works the same). If you're hardcore, you'll use a paint-drying gun and agitate the coffee yourself throughout the roasting process. So roasting my own saves me 3-figures and provides a much fresher cup of coffee. I'm certainly not lambasting anyone who goes to starbucks or buys cheap shit at a grocery store. My purpose is singularly to demonstrate that a superior cup of coffee can be had for those who want it, and on a significantly more enonomical basis. Regards,
  7. Taking a point from THIS thread about what one drinks when they go to Starbucks: Am I the only one that prefers to roast my own? Buy raw beans, roast them, grind it up and serve it fresh... It's a much better cup of coffee (fresh!), I have complete control over the flavor (roast time), and it's much more economical. Oh, and cream and sugar? Forget it... One thing is for sure. Once you try some home-grown coffee, you'll never want to go back to paying $3 for a cup of mediocre coffee at starbucks.

    Warning: when I visited the aforementioned website I found the hacktool.ie.exploit virus. I truly hope this isn't intentional. If not, then someone else may have hijacked that domain.
  9. How many hours a day do you spend on a computer?

    Yes, I prefer the question "Of the X hours you spend on a computer each day, how many are productive?" I worked as an ergonomics engineer where there was actually software to determine this.

    I gotta say, I though this was going to be a serious contribution to logical problem solving... and then I got a good laugh from it. :) Thanks OP
