World’s Greatest… Radio Scanners
Article on Gizmodo.com by Alex Roy, famous Gumballer from Team Polizei, reviewing radio scanners to help avoid the highway patrol.
Personally, I have all the THP frequencies programmed in my handheld scanner, but I never pick up anything from them. I’m using frequencies from an old list however, so they may have gone to a digital trunked system. I still find a Valentine One to be the single most important driving aid. That investment alone has saved me thousands.

So instead of being doing some sappy romantic garbage for Valentine’s Day ’06, why don’t you sit back, turn on the TV, and tune to TLC for an all-new episode of Overhaulin’?February 14 is the air date for the episode that was filmed at SEMA. Look for me somewhere in the front left of the crowd during the reveal of the car to Merrick. It will be lots more fun than buying roses.

VERY interesting article by Dennis Noyes posted on SPEEDTV.com regarding the shakeup in MotoGP sponsors (and riders) for next season. Long read, but well worth it.
Bunny-hopping an R1
This was not to be missed. As was posted on EastTNRiders.com, Ben’s friend Gus from Canada was tearing the Gap up the weekend of the EOSB (see my post from October for that). Kristen from Dragon Slayer Photo caught this sequence of shots, and its one of the most remarkable things I’ve seen.
