  1. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Yep, that's more than a lot of people would pay for a bike. I like my Trek Domain, especially after I upgraded to DI 2 shifters. $$$. Bike mods can be as much as truck mods.:crazy:
  2. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    True, but as Billy Joel said "You may be right I may be crazy But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for" I have always admitted to being Car crazy, I guess I could add bike crazy to that. But it is really not a bad place to be!! :LOL: :LOL:
  3. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Copy that. Many people are shocked when they hear how much a good bike costs. But as I am sure you know they are worth it if you ride a lot. BTW after seeing that accident I quit leaning mine against my truck. Now I just lay it down in the grass. :)
  4. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Nice bike. That picture scares the heck out of me. I was loading up my bike at the trail parking lot one day when I heard a big crunch. A guy had put his bike in front of his truck just like yours is. He somehow forgot it was there and started to drive off. :facepalm: Ouch. He backed up and...

  7. I read an article on automotive (micro)processors or, "My Ode to Ford Dev Teams"

    Rick. I am intrigued by your answer. I spent 28 years as an electrician in a Ford assembly plant. Specializing in robots. We used kawasaki and fanuc robots and allen bradly plc. Of course PLCS are the controlling force in industrial automation. As you know plc logic was commissioned by GM to...
  8. 2020 Lariat 4x4 In The Driveway

    The Lowest highs for the next 10 days is 108? That's crazy. Definitely in the danger zone. I bet HVAC technicians are in high demand. Back in the day I couldn't afford any custom wheels. So rattle cans of paint were my wheel mod of choice. Or maybe my man of means by no means budget. :LOL: I...
  9. The PIC whore club! Come on in!

    Photography can be a rewarding hobby. Don't be intimidated. I suggest checking out if your local schools or community Colleges offer any photography classes. Hopefully they will, post covid. I did that several years ago. The first thing the teacher told us was that we WOULD NOT be using any auto...
  10. 2020 Lariat 4x4 In The Driveway

    Hey Phil, That's interesting. Curious as to what year that was? I would guess that has changed some in recent years. Ford has stepped up the Ford after market business especially with the Mustangs, Rangers and Broncos. It looks like they finally took the Harley idea and ran with it. I think the...
  11. How about some Jokes

    I can verify this. :thumbsup: Also your glasses will slide down your nose in direct proportion to how full your hands are and your nose will itch in proportion to how greasy your hands are. :facepalm: Just a few of murphy's laws.:LOL:

    A small storm passed and cooled it off some. Nice evening to sit on the porch and enjoy the view. :)

  14. how to get new keys made if you don't have a key code that supposedly comes with the keys when new.

    In the mid 90s we would often travel to Dearborn (from KTP) for work related business. Usually flew either company plane or SWA. Car rentals were normally Taurus's from Budget. One of our guys came out of the Dearborn Inn one morning unlocked what he thought was his car, started it up and got...
  15. What did you receive in the mail today for your Ranger?

    For the ranger and the others. :)
  16. The PIC whore club! Come on in!

    Nope. Before I retired I considered mowing as decompression. After working in a factory, looking at concrete , steel and bulky robots and machines all day, climbing on that mower was a great stress reliever. Now that I am retired, I still don't mind mowing. I only keep about one and a half...
  17. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Also a gremlin took control of my Sync. It basically just locked up. Sirius was still playing but no matter which button I pushed the screen just blinked but would not change, couldn't even change channels. I pulled in to Mc Donald's shut truck off and opened the door, but screen would not turn...
  18. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Yes it was great to be back. Every one starting in 1987. Went to pole day a few years before that. Back in those days you had to get on a waiting list to even get to buy tickets. Pole day would draw 100000 fans. First tickets were on rickety wooden bleachers inside turn three. The facility and...
  19. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Drove the Ranger up to Indianapolis to see the 500. Pretty good race. Castronevis became the fourth 4 time winner. Its been 30 years since Mears did it. Al Unser, AJ Foyt. Rick Mears and now Helio Castronevis. Does that crowd look like 40% ?. There was no infield general admission. Glad I have...
  20. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    So even if late in the loan, it may not make the best financial sense, having things paid for sure is nice. :) The car, truck house etc. just looks and feels better when you own it free and clear. That peace of mind is worth a lot to me.
