Bacon Warning

I went for a ride at lunch to have some glass cut for my bar end mirrors to replace the plastic and saw 5 cars pulled over.

Just want to remind everyone that they are out and heavy. I usually only see about 4 people per month pulled over around here, so to see 4 in less than 30 minutes tells me I need to just stay in 1st gear and putt around.

Careful out there guys. Driving awards are expensive.

OH, bacon warning...

I thought you were gonna try to tell me I shouldn't be eatin' the stuff 'cause it's bad for my health and then I was gonna be all like, "screw you man, I'll eat what I like" and then you'd be like, "hey, go eat a freakin' salad! Bacon is bad!!" ...







...yep, a quite friday afternoon stuck in my cube. I'm nearly delusional.

Yeah, it's the holidays people, keep yourself in check as well as everyone around you.

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

well...as for pork products, between my wife and I, we eat a full pound of bacon every time we cook it. So every other weekend, I'll eat 2 Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwiches on Toast with a few strips of bacon on the side.

I might start layering bacon on the griddle to make the 'bread' then put strips between it and eat it.

I once, in an act of desperation - needing bacon for something I was making & then realized all I had was frozen solid - took a disposable foil pan & used it to grill bacon. I tell you I have never made bacon in the kitchen since.

It doesn't need to be frozen, but in a pinch for time it works. There's no greasy bacon smell in the house when I'm done (which could be good or bad, depending on your point of view) and best of all there's no splattered grease cleanup! I pull the bacon off the pan, let it sit on the grill just long enough to cool off a bit, then pick it up & dump the grease in a jar. DONE.

An important tip though ( & this goes for any meat on the grill, really)
Grilling in direct overhead sunlight can be very misleading. If it's really bright out I have a hard time distinguishing what's done & what's not done, so when it looks done outside - usually is actually overdone once I bring it in the house.

Too late for me. I just got a performance award on Tuesday, it has been 9 years since my last one in Ohio. I forgot my own rule, NEVER-EVER ride before or during a holiday weekend. 71 in a 55 wasn't too bad for a deserted country road. I was kind of proud that my little Aprilia could even go that fast.

On a related note;

Looks like Ohio is #2, figures.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Yes every little Police Department in OH has extra people out for the holiday.
This is a great revenue time of year.

Between 2004 and 2006, little Baskin (population about 200) got 87% of its town budget from speeding tickets, the highest percentage of 304 Louisiana municipalities surveyed.

"It is primarily a tool in many communities to raise revenue," Louisiana state Rep. Hollis Downs, who represents two parishes in north-central Louisiana, says of the town's aggressive traffic enforcement -- what others might call speed traps.

MMMMMMM.............BACON!

I don't believe all this nonsense about it being bad either. My ancestors ate everything cooked in lard in they all lived well into their late 90's early 100's!

All joking aside there are places in Louisiana that are just plain speed traps. One of the the town of woodsworth is 10 miles from my parents an is the worst place for tickets. They will write 2 mph over. A$$holes. Anyway la has inspection stickers. Florida don't we are driving thru woodsworth and here comes the cop pulls me over says license Reg etc I ask why I am being stopped he said no inspection sticker. I told him we don't have those in Florida he still wanted my license I requested his supervisor he called him 3 mins later here is the cheif. He walks up. Says "hey brian" talks for 10 mins tells his officer to "go to work" and wishes us well.

It's nice to have high school buddies in high places.

Btw since I had violated no law the officer had no just cause to run my license. So be real careful before you try a stunt like that. You could end up in jail

They run your tags here all the time for no reason. Want an example?

Laura was scheduled to be induced into labor the next day. I had taken off work to get everything prepped. We went shopping for a few things then were headed home. We stop at a light and a cop pulls up behind me and then rides my butt all the way to my house. I pull into the alley behind the house and he drives on past. Then all of a sudden, as I'm pulling up to my storage building, he comes skidding to a stop right behind me (at this point, I'm in my rear driveway/parking spaces).

I ask him what I did and he didn't say anything; just took my license, registration and went back to his car. He walks back up a minute or so later and starts giving me a speech on how he can take me to jail and all this other crap because I'm driving on an expired license. I told him to learn to read and look at my license again. It didn't expire for another 3 years! He went back to his car, and came back again. He said, oops...I was looking at your expired Motorcycle Permit. Okay douche bag...my permit expired because I now have my license. He wrote me a warning for my window tint then finally went away.

Douche bags!
