I feel like this came out of left field. Apparently Dyson, the vacuum company, is making electric cars now. lol. What do you all think about this?
This morning, this idiot almost caused an accident. I was almost to work and was about to pull into the parking lot. My coworker was coming from the other direction and she had the right of way, so I put my blinker on and waited to turn left. As she finished pulling into the lot I began making my turn when all of a sudden, some dumbass decides he is going to try to go around me on my
So i'm going tomorrow and getting my 2017 FZ-09!
It sucks that I won't be able to ride it and and do a proper break in until the spring. The excitement is killing me. lol.
That being said, this down time gives me time to make a few adjustments to the bike. The first mod I want to do is to get rid of the hideous orange pumpkin turn signals and throw on some black led OEM Yamaha turn
This weekend I am buying my first brand new vehicle. A 2017 Yamaha FZ-09. I'm super excited.
When I went to my current insurance company (Geico) and ran a quote for insurance on the motorcycle, I almost took a crap right there at my desk at work.
Geico wanted $400 a month for full coverage. That's over half the entire cost of the motorcycle in the first year.
This took me by surprise because my frs which is highly modified
Did anyone have a favorite car commercial? Jeep was out in full force. And I thought Kia did pretty good with the Stinger commercial.
I'm getting so close!!
All I need left to complete my big brake kit is:
1. The CTS-V caliper swap mounting braket kit.
2. The Stainless steel brake lines
3. A slotted rotor for the passenger side
It's so close!!
Has anyone ever used these? I picked up a set for a good price that had damaged packaging on Amazon. I've been reading some good things about them.

Thought this was pretty interesting. This will be quite the feat if Mazda can achieve this level of thermal efficiency.
Oh man. I am home! What a trip. So much driving but it was a blast!
We stayed in a KOA just outside of Saint Louis. So fun! We saw the Saint Louis arch, the monument in indy, and all sorts of cool things along the way.
Fun fact, Panerai bread was founded in Saint Louis and is still called the Saint Louis bread company there. Lol.
Phew. What a day. The dogs we are traveling with struggled in the hotel room and barked at any sound they heard. At ended up getting like 4 hours of sleep. It was rough.
We started today in Amarillo Texas and ended just outside of Saint Louis Missouri. We grabbed a tiny cabin for the night. Just right!
I didn't take a whole lot of photos, but here's what I have. A huge wind farm in Texas that lasted over
Phew. What a day. My buddy and I had to stay overnight in Phoenix since his car had to be fixed at the BMW dealership. So that added an extra few hours of drive time to get back to flagstaff this morning.
But after an all day drive, we crossed New Mexico and made it to Amarillo Texas. It's 3am and we start our day tomorrow at 8am, so this will be short.
But damn was this a beautiful drive.
This weekend i'm going to do something a little different. Today i'm flying out to Arizona to meet up with my good friend and his wife. They are moving back to Ohio! So I volunteered to help them drive everything they own across the country in 3 days.
So Friday, Saturday, and Sunday i'll be posting a daily update here on Wheelwell each day with some photos and anything cool that I come across on my journey. Kinda
This is just plain incredible technology. A motor that can adjust it's compression on the fly, providing anywhere from 8:1 (for high performance) and 14:1 (for high efficiency) compression ratios. Freaking sweet.
Infinity is killing it. What do you guys think?
Last week, some of you peeps gave me some of your opinions to help me make a decision between DBA and StopTech rotors for my BBK i'm putting together. Clearly the universe has plans for my car. That same day, I checked the website and noticed that there was a "used" option for one of the StopTech rotors being sold through the Amazon Warehouse Deals. The description was a little troubling.
It made it sound as though the
