    Traffic Rant Is this the new way to ride Motorcycles?

    Witnessed this April 18, 2019 on Route 5 at Aster Drive. Just a minute before, a car that was between me and the white van you see ahead of me passed the van on the shoulder while the van was driving 50 MPH (dash cam wasn't plugged in). I guess that driving the speed limit wasn't good enough...

If he impacted in the front and spun him around...

    Best Car Battery to Purchase

    I guess I'll stick with Interstate. Costco has Interstate batteries (at least that's what the label says) for half the list price. As far as Wal-Mart, I had one in the Honda and the F150 and they were nothing but trouble. The F150 was constantly going dead (I don't drive it much). Put a...
