    Been trolling a few months on CL looking for it and usually people want almost full retail for used ones. Wish I needed the front ones b/c I could have had the set of 4 for $55, but I don't know anyone else who has a Rav4.

    Mainly hit and run but I stopped at the mall in Marlborough on the way home for the new Body Count disc..

    I got the frame in 2008 ish it wasn’t a vintage bike.

    Hot damn. I was gonna say that’s a hell of a drive just for mats but for 25 seems worth it. Good day f or a cruise too.

    The MCS Styler I always lusted after back then goes for a fortune even in crappy shape. Who got a time machine??

    Buying that mat new was $85 and I've been scoping about 6 months for a used one. They don't show up much, but the big problem is when they do people want damn near the new price for it. Shame I didn't need the fronts too or know someone who did. So figure I saved $60 on a day I wasn't doing much and spent about $10 in fuel for the Rav4

    If have just bought them and flipped them. Problem is I actually might know someone who would want them but I guess too late now :rofl:

    Yeah I was never a vintage guy. I got the appeal but I bought to ride and abuse. That's why I ran 30/11 gearing because 25/9 was too fragile for me I was a big guy and rough as hell on my stuff.

    Yeah, it's no-brainer for me. The Sabattus Park & Ride and Town Office/PD are right off of the highway, so they can't even argue that it's inconvenient to get to.

    I'd love to get a set of sliders for my truck, I just can't justify the price.

    I justified it like this, steps are ok but they hook into your rocker panel and are pretty flimsy. If you ever are thinking about going offroad, it is a no brainer. If you not going to take your truck offroad, it is the best "door ding" protection you can get. If you need to put something on your roof rack, they are sturdy as hell to stand on. Most sliders are very high in price but honestly with the black friday and tax-man deals that SOS Concepts puts on....for me it was a no brainer.

    Even bolt on sliders are cheaper than fixing when you need them.

    I'll probably get a set, I don't plan to do off roading enough to actually need them, but the first time I went out I felt/heard my skid plate take a light swipe, so I'll probably end up with skids and sliders, they're cheaper than the alternative o_O

    Edit:
    1. Hold on tight just added 3 years to my retirement in 9 minutes!
    2. Rock sliders - I'm thinking get them raw and do a DIY bedliner on them. Anyone done that before?

    Most of my retirement is in the state pension system, but I have a Roth that has lost 10% in the past month. I just keep contributing like I normally do with every paycheck--it'll rebound eventually and what I keep putting in while it's low will only help me later.

    Yeah I am debating about dumping 2020 roth contributions soon rather than DCA throughout the year.

    I have direct deposit send $230 per paycheck over to my Vanguard account which gets auto-invested the day after. I suppose I could stop that for the rest of the year and just put whatever's left of the $6k in all at once, but it's a pain to go through the forms to change it.

    I also have a goal for my cash savings and I'm not there yet so I'd rather not take a hit on that to try to time the market.

    I have rustoleum primer, rustoleum bedliner, and rustoleum high performance flat black enamel on mine. Makes touch up pretty easy and the spray cans can be found in a variety of places

    Mmm. I do manual deposits straight to Betterment Roth, plus my company normal 401k contributions. direct deposit is easy for us fortunately. I just do it manually and keep track so I know if I'm at my limits.

    Hmmm I have high temp enamel I got originally for my grill but never used. But, yeah I'd probably do a rattle can. How does yours hold up? Do you have a lot of touch ups?

    Taking the bike and dog for a trail run after work. Shakedown to see what I need on the bike this year. I'm thinking new brakes and a chain are all I'll need. Hopefully.

    There's a name I haven't heard in a while. I still stop at the mall sometimes to look for CD's, but sadly I'm left turning to Amazon for many of them now. I also have a knack for finding albums I want that seem to go for $100's, for used copies!
