I'll grab a gallon of purple power to see how it works, I don't remember being real happy with it in the past, but I'll try it again.

Seems like a decent idea. Ive heard of people using dryer sheets for other stuff too.

It's the ad where the guy does a red car hood and a bottles slides off it at the start of the ad.

Son uses it on his Road King and swears it works as advertised. I dunno!
I think it's a spray on. Never really paid attention to the ad, because I wash my ADV bikes by riding them in the rain. Or sponge bath them once a year.

Chrome never got me home, so I don't have any.
I know what your talking about. I might order some down the road if I can figure out the name.

Basically spray on, pressure wash off.

Ran good, not very fast but makes due with it's 40 HP or so.

I bought it from the original owner, have all paperwork going back to the purchase.

Will be one of my rentals.

SLOWPOKE693 Stuck my wife in the new race seat I put in the SxS and strapped her in with the 5 point harness so she could get the feel. Pulled them mildly tight, but not race tight. She immediately starts panicking and screaming get me out, get me out, get me out........ She no longer wants to be my co-pilot when I race, and basically said that she's never getting back in it with those kinds of seat belts. Glad I didn't buy the passenger seat yet.

If I told you I was sad about this, I'd be lying!

just the lips.

the inside of the barrels are a machined finish. It would take me ages to sand them and polish them smooth.

this looks like natural aluminum, so after it's cleared it's going to appear as it were from the factory with polished lips instead of the machined lips.

It turned out alright for spraybomb. It's like a really heavy mettallic.

three more to mask off and do since the test wheel turned out pretty ok. then clear. then reassembly.
then I beg the tire guy not to mar them.

So sorry dude. Console her!
We had our son invitro. He is 12 now. It was an emotional roller coaster. We knew a girl who had an abortion, around the same time. She was young and healthy, slut. We could not fathom anyone just throwing away a life.

I totally understand and sympathize. My Wife and I went down that road too. Our 4th time was the charm for us.

I know how hard it is to see all of your friends quitting birth control, getting pregnant, having kids, and you're stuck trying over and over again.

Just make sure to keep telling her its not her fault. The emotional roller coaster my Wife was on throughout our time was terrible. She was constantly beating herself up for no reason. My Wife and I know exactly what they're going through, and it sucks bad.

Sorry to hear I do believe everything happens for a reason, maybe this isn't the time for her . Tell her to keep her spirits up, it'll happen when the time is right.
