Tough for us Prius guys as well, although there really isn't any fun factor in that vehicle.

I asked a gentleman once how he liked his, and he said "It's an excellent transportation appliance."

I really don't own any four wheeled vehicles that have much "fun" factor either.
Most everything with tires that I have are transportation devices. Even the Polaris Sportsman ATV is mostly utility duty and carries a snowplow most of the time. Some vehicles are just better at it than others, depending on the task.
Although I have to admit, I would never get too excited about, or concerned with, figuring out how to do an engine swap in a Prius.
This street bike thing is all new to me.
Snowmobiles-I have a bunch of those.

You know, that's exactly what it is.

And it's a very large battery indeed.

Fed Ex and UPS delivery drivers, I know they are really busy and can spend only so much time at each house, but every single time I get a delivery, I hear the knock, I look, by the time I run, get my shoes, run to the door, leap off the back porch, run around the house, I'm tearing down the driveway yelling at the guy to stop, sometimes I get him right before he closes the door of the truck, many times not and I'm standing at the side of the road waving frantically for him to stop. This happens even when I see the truck stop and before he gets to the door, I usually don't even get to tie my shoes, I usually run out the door with no shoes on to catch him. And, on every single order I have made, on the order form where they ask for any special instructions, I always type in, "please place package on back porch at rear of house". Simple huh? Nope. Its a matter of walking 15 extra feet.

Your driver sucks. I couldn't ask for better customer than I get from my driver.

I'm expecting a 26lb package today, I know that guy ain't gonna park, pick up the box, walk the 70 feet to my door, knock, wait, post a note, then walk back to the truck. What he's gonna do is run up to the house, knock lightly as he's running past the door to the truck, jump in and drive off like a bat outta hell.

5 litres S4-R
1 filter
Set of pads (HH) for the front
25 pack of bolts and nuts
And 3 drain plug gaskets

$296.45

Then they want $520.00 + and tax for a new set of PR4GT's plus install.
Then insurance and registration.

Stealerships. And they wonder why more people are buying on line.

Have to put the blinders on to ride in our short season.

Good to know thanks Deziner. :chugbeer:
How many clicks you have on yours?

Sitting at 8500kms (5281mi) on mine. Going to measure the wear tomorrow, hoping to get at least another 4000km out of them with any luck.

Mine are brand new. Next weekend will be nearly 1000 miles if all goes well.
