RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
I missed a quiz deadline for the MOOC I'm taking >:| THEN I fucked up hybrid infertility for my essay and got marked off a bunch of points... I'll be lucky if I pass this (free, voluntary) course.

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

It’s a nifty little device. You plug it into your bike and it reads the VIN number to determine make and model. Then you pair it with a phone via Bluetooth and select the correct modifications via pull down menus. The app then downloads the new map for the fuel system from the manufacturer’s database and flashes the ECM. Tuning complete.

The problem is that back in step one when the tuner reads the bike’s VIN it permanently pairs with it so it can’t be used on any other bikes. Fucking greedy ass manufacturer.

Actually bought my Super Glide Custom with the fuel pack already installed but it's good to know that I better really want it when I get another bike.

Liberty loving, gun owning Atheist. Don't worry it confuses the right as well.

I keep forgetting to put my groceries in the refrigerator when I get home.

Maybe next time I'll just set some money on fire and save myself a trip to the store. Dodgy

So many people don't know the US is not a Christian nation and try to legislate it as if it were.

My shirts seem to have shrunk in the wash again...

For a rather rotund gentleman such as myself who is well aware of himself, this is naturally quite the predicament.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

People who wear leggings/spandex and they REALLY shouldn't be.

Try rebuilding these...

That's inline 4 setup of Keihin 34 mm Constant Vacuum carburetors from a 1993 Honda CB750 Nighthawk.

Took them out, rebuilt them, re-jetted them, re-installed them, and finally synced them. Nothing digital, all analog. Also replaced the sprockets and main drive chain while I had the bike apart. Also getting to the carburetors located at the back of the cylinders requires dismantling everything on the bike behind them (rear wheel, seat, air box, battery, all rear and side body panels, the tank, etc.). Thank goodness mine at least had a center stand.

That was a fun week...
