Thats right folks. I’m posting and i’m not just posting about some random crap. This post shall be about the greatest thing to happen to music since the banjo. His name is Darren Foreman a.k.a. BEARDYMAN and he is a beatboxer. Before you say to yourself “Beatboxing is rubbish” I want you to take a peek at the video im am going to link to (embedding doesn’t work).

He is currently working his ass off out in the UK and area and posting videos onto youtube with over one million views. If that is not enough to impress upon you the magnitude of his awesomeness then you should also know that he is the UK Beatbox champion for 2006 and 2007.

How to Winterize your Motorcycle for Winter Storage.

As the leaves change colours and winters icy chill approches, the over whelming feeling of dread comes upon you. Knowledge that you wont be able to feel the wind, the freedom, or the absolute joy of flying on the road is creeping. With that comes the responsibility that seasonal motorcyclists must endure, the winterizing of your beloved bike. This is suprisingly easy and can be done with minimal tears if you just follow these simplified points.

TOOLS AND SUPPLIES

– Cleaning cloths
– Spark plug wrench
– Trickle battery charger
– Four of five quarts of high quality oil
– New oil filter
– Oil can or device to get oil into the cylinders
– Chain lube
– Fuel stabilizer
– Can of WD40
– Breathable motorcycle cover, specific to motorcycles, not a tarp.
– Kitchen plastic wrap
– Rubber bands
– Vinyl or plastic gloves
– Items to clean and wax you bike
– A location to store your bike. A heated garage would be great but if you dont have that then be sure to avoid wind, water, vermin, mildew, and chemical fumes.

LOCATION

– If you are storing on concrete, put it on a piece of plywood, MDF, or old thick carpet to prevent moisture
– Remove all of the weight from the wheels
– A bike stand or some blocking works
– A centerstand and blocking works
– Do not store you bike near ozone emitting devices such as motors, freezers, furnaces, or electric heaters. These gasses will deterioate your rubber parts.
– Keep your bike out of direct sunlight, this can fade the plastic and painted parts.

GAS TANK

– Add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
– Fill your tank as full as you can.
– As fuel ages the volatile components change and leave sludge and gummy substances that clog the carburetor or the fuel injectors.
– Run the bike so the gas and fuel stabilizer get the the carburetor and fuel injectors.
– Turn off the fuel line and run it dry.
– If you have a carburetor, drain the float bowls, shut off the gas petcock and drain the gas from the carburetor bowls. Consult your manual to find where your drain screws are. If you have a fuel injected bike there is nothing to drain.

ENGINE

– Remove spark plug wires
– Carefully remove the plugs
– Get some motor oil in the cylinders. Approximately one teaspoon of oil will work well
– Tuck the plug wires away somewhere safe so they do not arc
– Spin the motor with the rear tire and clutch in gear for a few revolutions to get the oil spread around
– Keep your face away from the spark plug holes. Oil will squirt out
– Clean and gap the plugs and put them back in. Replace plug wires

BATTERY

– Possibly remove the battery.
– Some batteries require charging every four weeks with a “battery tender” or “trickle” type of charger
– Built up sulfates on the plates can ruin a battery during inactivity or cold storage
– A thin coat of vaseline on the terminals can prevent corrosion

PAINT AND FINISH

– Clean your bike thoroughly
– Don’t spray water directly in the tail pipe, it could rust
– Aviod getting the air cleaner housing wet
– Dry completly with a good chamois
– Clean and polish all metal surfaces with metal polish
– Put a good coat of wax on painted and chrome surfaces

CHAIN

– Clean the chain.
– Spray the built up residues with WD40
– Lube the chain

SUSPENSION

– Put oil on the front fork tubes, the part that goes inside
– Get on the bike, compress and decompress the front suspension several times
– This keeps the rubber seals from drying out and protects the front fork tubes

LEATHER

– Clean and treat all of the leather with a high quality treatment and dressing

MUFFLER

– Make sure it is dry to prevent rust
– Seal the tail pipe with plastic wrap and a rubber band

ANTIFREEZE

– If your bike is liquid cooled, check its antifreeze levels
– Drain, flush, and replace antifreeze if neccessary
– This replacement should be done every two years
– Do not leave the antifreeze level low or empty
– Check all other fluid levels, brakes, etc

EXTRA ADVICE

– Do not run the engine for short periods during the storage period
– Seal the air intake with plastic wrap and a rubber band

SPRING TIME

– Remove the storage cover
– Remove the plugs on the air intake and muffler
– Check tire pressure
– Give bike a good wash
– Install battery if applicable
– Give it a good tune up,
– Enjoy the new riding season!

How to get Neighbors on Zyngas’ Farmville on Facebook.

October 7, 2009 1 comment

No one is poor as long as they have friends. That is a quote from someone who is long gone but not forgotten, except that I just forgot who said it.  That is doubly true in the online world of MMO gaming.

Zynga has created a great application on Facebook called Farmville. If you are reading this post then you probably know exactly what it is and what it is all about. So I’m not going to go into detail about it other that just to tell you that if you want to get free gifts of trees, animals and decorations then you are going to need a whole lot of friends in order to do so. It is quite nice of Zynga to set up this free game for us, but there is still the competitive urge to be the best there is. Keep on reading and all of the love in this game will be yours.

The key to gettin tons of friends and neighbors to send you gifts on Zyngas Farmville is to sign up for GROUPS. Yep, thats it, easy, simple and terribly boring. This is what I did and now I have more gifts than I know what to do with. If you want to see some proof then check the picture below. I get on average around 30+ gifts per day.

farmvilleproof

All of those trees and animals get me a lot of cash. I hope you noticed the nearly 400,000 coins in that picture. So, to recap, JOIN GROUPS. There is an army of people out there that want to be you neighbors and most of them will send you gifts every day and most of those dont even ask for a gift in return.

I will post a clickable list of all of the groups that I have joined and have helped me to get 200 friendly neighbors. All together, these groups have over 300,000 members and if you get even one quarter of those you can expect to get around 500 free gifts everyday. So just sign up to there groups for farmville and post on them that you need friends.
