    Can't argue with that.....

    I used to have one clipped and peaked. Astetic power mic and a "little box" with the numbers 250 written on it......

    :think: Wonder what they meant?......

    :D

    I had a ball with that thing......

    Rep given! :thumb:

    Thanks big guy, but with current gas prices, I'm not hauling ass anywhere...it makes a big difference.
    The Snowshoe trip every weekend may take a little longer, but I'll save gas.

    Gas is £1.10/litre in the UK at the moment, or to put it another way, $10/gallon.

    So you best not be about to whinge about your "high" gas prices ;)

    We in the US prefer our gas like our women... cheap & always ready to be pumped.

    Dam that is insane, it does not even need to be that high. Gas companies are profiting more than they ever had...

    Your exactly right, they are at all time record breaking profits. Greedy SOB's, but simple economics -remember the good old supply/demand curves!!

    I keep hearing on the news that the gas companies won't let it get over $4/gallon (in the US) because it could actually decrease profits as studies show at that price point Americans would conserve by not vacationing as much, buy gas effecient cars, carpool etc...! The old bald guys at the gas companies with the golden friggin parachutes, and the fat cat lobbyist in Washington sure don't want that now do they!

    I say we all start riding our bikes everywhere....wait a minute, the mountains are a 2 hour car ride away so how long would it take me to get there on my DH rig let alone have any energy to ride - ok, I'll pay $4/gallon.
