Re: Black Friday Getaway Ride

I'd have objected if I had any idea he was going to put that on the social media. Especially with my name on it.

You can probably ask them to pull it down.

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!

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

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

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: Black Friday Getaway Ride

Yeah, I've sent them an email. Very disturbing how they don't seem to have any respect for the privacy of their customers.

Edit: Looks like a combination of that and a phone call got it taken care of. What is wrong with people now that they think everyone wants the world to know their business?

I've already told everyone I care to. I've also not told those I don't want to know. And I specifically hate modern social media and everyone's assumption that I want to be on it.

Lot of car and mc dealerships do this but most don't use any name and I've never seen last name shown.

Re: Black Friday Getaway Ride

Honestly it's the name that bothers me so much. The picture doesn't have legible license plates or anything else overtly identifying. It's pretty harmless.

In other news, I've ordered the parts I need to set up the new bike and have my shock sent off for servicing. I'll have a set up and ready to go bike by the end of the month assuming I can tolerate the labor to put it all together!

Doing pretty good. A little less than 2 weeks left in the sling. Foot is doing well and I'm walking normally. Mouth is healing up all right too. I expect I'll be fit for some relaxed street riding by December. Hopefully the arm and shoulder rehab well and I'll be up for some dual sporting while the weather is still nice. Fortunately I'm still young and heal quickly!
