The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Justacruisin

Another problem. Body getting rounder. Legs getting shorter.
I changed out the pegs. Maybe a 1/2 in. lower. Need them lower so I can place both feet flat on the Pavement.

Any suggestions.

Justacruisin,at least trying to.


you know. lowering the pegs is not going to lower the bike.

Welcome.

I just happen to be in the market for some new glasses.

Suggestion: Create a new post in the General Forum with information on what we should be looking for, looking to avoid, etc. I think a LOT of us would be very appreciative of some information we can use when we visit our local optometrist.

Re: Justacruisin

Baskins, it looks like you have a Versys in the profile pic. If so, there are a few options for lowering the bike. There are "link kits" that will lower the seat about 1-2 inches. You can also look for something like a lower seat to drop it about 1-2 inches also. Seat Concepts makes a seat that is lower than the factory seat and is about the "cheapest" option.

I have a 2009 Versys and currently I don't mind my seat height, but I wouldn't mind it being a little lower so I may do the seat change at some point.

Either way, welcome to the site.
