Didn't see it, but I have seen that car around before with the name of some flower store on it.

Was at work and went outside to my truck and saw 7 punk ass kids looking in my windows and pointing and took off when they saw me. Later in the evening they where back, but sitting on the curb infront of my truck. Stupid shits playing mind games. Think the alarm is getting installed as-soon as i get back from vacation.

Did you check the fluid? Check the trans filter before you compeltely rip it out.

Yeah some flower store has one but I think one of the Pizzaway ones got all done up too. I have yet to meet anyone who orders from there yet I always see their cars running around. Pretty sweet to get a company car for deliveries.

Yeah I checked on that couple weeks ago when I started having a shaking problem during slow accel but the fluid looked OK (not burned or anything) so I focused attention elsewhere.

for any of you Battlestar Galactica fans out there:
a friend of mine gets to be an extra (not a simple background extra) on an episode of Battlestar Galactica they are filming around Kamloops. he sent me the map they gave him so i shows the various filming locations: raptor set, basecamp set, funeral cairn set. the kicker - my friend doesn't even watch the show and knows very little about it except that is a space drama. when he saw the raptor on the map, he thought it was describing the species of dinosaur.

was anyone else lucky enough to hear the casting call and get in on this?

Wow, so I took the quad for a ride tonight and wow did it ever take my for a ride. After climbing the hill that my buddy said was super steep I was catwalking at the base and was going pretty quick let it down only notice that the edge of the road ( bear main) was like 5 ft away and flew over the edge. I landed about 20ft down the hill to tumble for another 20-30ft only to have the quad land on me and mash me between it and a tree. My poor quad kept going til it was like 160ft away from the road. After the brother brought like 200ft of tow straps and rope I rode it up the hill being pulled by my brothers truck. It is mangled. The handle bars are in where the gas tank should be, steering stem is right screwed, rear plastic is cracked pretty good, rear grab bar toast, reverse switch bracket broken, bent brake lever, and might have a slightly bent wheel hard to tell yet. I am fairly good shape lots of scratches and my shoulder is sore. Ugh my camera had to have a dead battery so couldnt even take any pics to show just how far down my quad was. It took about 180ft of straps and rope to start pulling it up.

Well i felt like a 80yr old man today holy. This morning my knee would barely move had to gently stretch for 10 min this morn before going up stairs. Kneeling and lifting today was a workout even if it was something like climbing a ladder with a drill and screws. So after work I did what any quadrider would do. Went quad shopping and realized some places here are way more expensive than Grande Prairie, jeez. Tomo hopefully suzuki will call me and i can go pick up a new ltr450 race quad, yay. and a new helmet

So, I am getting 12.3 MPG at the cost of 28.6 cents a km of in town gas guzzling, and probably worse now that the A/C is on all the time. Woohoo.
