    I couldn't resist.

    We stopped by our Can Am dealer a couple weeks ago because I wanted to pick up a couple things before our ATV trip. When went in they were having a big clearance sale.

    These pants were by far the best deal they had. Granted they say Can Am on them and are meant for Spyder riders and don't have armor, but I figure are better than jeans on a motorcycle. The leather is really soft and supple. For $29 bucks how do you go wrong. I heard they literally had Pallets of these pants in their warehouse and are also selling them on their ebay store.



    Welp I tested these out today. They are really comfortable and airflow was pretty good with the thigh vents open. The bottoms have pretty large openings though. It would be nice if they had velcro to make them tight around my boots.

    It was 84 and pretty humid plus I rode my R1 so in 84 it's like riding a torpedo furnace anyway unless kept at speed at this temp. I wore full length Astar summer bottoms underneath and probably should have opted for my Astar boxers. instead.

    We stopped for lunch and I unzipped the full length legs up to my thighs to cool off in the restaurant and I cooled down pretty quick. For $29 I'm pretty happy. I may just rock these at the MWG later this month depending on the temps.

    • Replaced the god-awful double bowl sink in my new home with a nice single-bowl. I can't stand the fact that you can't put a decent sized pan down in most sinks, so even though the one I had was new, I couldn't wait to change it out.

      • Sweet Andy!

        We are going through some big home renovations ourselves. We had an upstairs toilet tank break and run all night flooding two bedrooms and leaked down through the ceiling downstairs and into carpet down there.

        We spent this weekend buying new carpeting, flooring, and furniture. Have a GC coming out tomorrow night so we can talk it through and start getting the labor scheduled. Once all done we'll refinance and do a few other things with our kitchen being one. It'll being 2017 by the time we finish I'm sure!

        • Enjoy.. I'm grateful the home I bought was completely gutted and remodeled. It's almost perfect, but the double sink had to go, despite the fact that it was new. I cook a lot, I need a good roomy sink - this one holds a baking sheet with plenty of room to spare!

          • I didn't realize how crappy the divided sink is until we got the single bowl. Holy crap is that great! I don't know why there'd be any other way at this point!

            • It comes from back in the day when we washed our own dishes. One for wash, one for rinse. Washing by hand in a single is a nightmare.

              Pardon me if you have no idea what I'm talking about. It's a generational thing.

              If all you do is rinse and load the dishwasher, no real need for 2 sinks.

              Or if you just throw it all in the dishwasher with crusty food and bones and everything, no need for a sink at all. Just depends on your comfort level and how aggressive your dishwasher is.

              • Well I'm aware from my dishwashing days in commercial kitchens and bars, we use 3 compartment sinks, for wash/rinse/sanitize, so that makes sense. Even in the single tub. I wash everything and stack it up, then rinse everything off in the next go and set aside to dry.
                I didn't know that there was life before dishwashers though? My parents still "do dishes" every now and then, and I find myself saying, "mom, just throw it in the dishwasher!"
