OT: Tip of the day, year, month or something

(not particulary in that order)

TIP: be a nice person.

I went away this weekend, my dads friend is a real jerkoff. Bad driver, inconsiderate about others, always telling people what to do as if they can't even understand simple tasks, not polite, never generous. Just not somebody I ever intend to spend a weekend with again. Not to mention his son is a real jerk too. I guess it runs in the family. Actually I know it runs in the family.

Kinda venting here, sorry if its totally OT. Its just life is so much more enjoyable when your generally a nice person. I just really don't understand people :)

Man I was just talking about this stuff with my wife. We were driving home and some jackass passed a semi on the right, and did it very carelessly. He gained two car spaces, equating to like a half second ahead, and he looked like the worlds biggest assmunch afterwards.

The point is that the extra half second he was ahead was not worth looking like an idiot.

The same principle can be applied to robbing a bank. If you can get away with a million bucks or something, might be worth it. But these kids that steal like a couple 'o hundred, then do jail time, come on.

I'm with ya man, there's just no reason to be that way. Glad there's someone else out there who's not going to run me over. Thanks.

big cup of go F@&k your self usually does those type of guys some good! :)

I truly believe karma works. I've seen too many extremely unpleasant people (putting it mildly) get their just rewards. I'm not angelic by any means. I do believe (maybe erroneously) that I can bank or save good karma to make up for the times when I do give that inconsiderate driver the one-finger-salute. :D

IMO life is too short to hang out with a-holes.

Imagine if we all just agreed to live by the Golden Rule, which in essence just says treat people the way you would like to be treated, we'd all live in a happier place. :D

Ok, enough with the touchy-feely crap. Let's ride! :)

karma does work, I also live by it.

I also hate drivers who cut around only to gain nothing, yet risk the lives of everybody around them. Sometimes I swear.... I could just....

If assh@les could fly this place would be an airport.

LMMFAO!!! :):D :D

I to believe in the Karma thing. Lots of folks just give you a dumb look when you talk about it. But some of us know it works! :)

Sure seems to be a lot of angry frustrated people out there banging there heads against the wall...

Just to put things in perspective the best quote on trafffic is from George Carlin:

Anyone who passes you is an [censored], anyone in your way is an idiot.

Not sure if thats exactly how it went, but something to that effect... :)

Reckless drivers suck, now that Im street riding again I gain new respect for

guys doing it more then me and new fear of everyone else... :D

Im sure people look at me on my bike and get pissed because lane splitting

is still legal in california... :D

I'm with Drew. Life is just too short. Pick your battles and let all the other [censored] go. I used to get really ticked off at other drivers but now I realize most of them aren't &%$#@!, they're just stupid or completely unaware that they did anything wrong.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
