How To Replace a Price Pfister Genesis Kitchen Faucet Cartridge

I have to be honest. I hate the Price Pfister Genesis faucet in my kitchen. The detachable sprayer hand nozzle has broken off in my hand twice. Then last week I noticed a pool of water on the kitchen counter. I thought one of our Brita pitchers was leaking, so I cleaned up the water […]

Random Motorcycling Tip #20: How to Avoid Dropping Your Motorcycle at a Stop

There’s a “Wives’s Tale” among motorcyclists that everyone drops their bikes. Dropping one’s bike is a primary reason that lighter, small bikes are recommended to beginners. I agree with this, but I also think that not learning how to control a motorcycle at low speeds on a light bike can mean big trouble when a […]

Glock 9mm Double Stack Magazine Carrier Comparison Review

I review the Blackhawk CQC Double Stack single magazine carrier, the El Paso Saddlery LEG-535 Double Stack double magazine carrier, a nylon double stack double magazine pouch provided by Cheaper Than Dirt when purchasing KCI aftermarket Glock magazines, and a horizontally-oriented double stack single magazine carrier by Parlusk.

Real Time Industries Reflective Stickers for Yamaha FJR Saddlebags Review

I normally try to blend in, but safe motorcycle riding involves being seen. These retroreflective custom-cut high visibility stickers made by Real Time Industries go a long way to increasing visibility from the rear of my Yamaha FJR 1300.

WallSwitch Desktop Wallpaper Switching App for Android Mobile Phones

One of the things I like the most about my HTC Incredible Android phone is its large, beautiful screen. It’s a far cry from the Motorola StarTac phone I owned. SmartPhones encourage me to dork out in ways I never cared about before. For example, I put a different background on my Incredible. It was […]

Is That a Katydid On Your Chair, or You Just Happy to See Me?

Sedagive? and I do a kettlebell routine three nights a week here at the house. We clear the furniture out of the living room, including two upholstered chairs. I went to replace them when we were done, and I noticed a very bright green leaf on top of one of them. I reached out to […]

The human body reacts to where we look, and to what we see. If you play a lot of sports or video games, shoot firearms, or motorcycle, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

What I Look For In a Motorcycle Glove

What I Look For In a Motorcycle Glove

When it comes to motorcycle safety gear, I wear “All The Gear, All The Time” (ATGATT). That means protective gear meant especially for motorsports: helmet, jacket, pants, boots, and gloves. Folks ask me all the time what they should get for their own gear, and I always reply “it depends.” There’s no one ultimate helmet, […]

Happy Birthday, Porter!

Happy Birthday, Porter!

Happy birthday to my buddy Porter, who is six today. Luckily, this was a pretty uneventful year for my little guy. There was a little “snowdog” action during the snow storm, but he didn’t seem to mind that I had to shovel it all. Porter’s weight is still down, and Sedagive? took him for a […]
