    Well, there is something to be said about startling people. I guess I'm jaded with loud pipes on motorcyclists splitting lanes at high speeds. I guess it is tough out there for everyone! :)

    I just bought my first CNC, Van: a Nomad 883. It is a cute lil' thing that sits on a bench top but is quite limited with its ability to handle projects in the 8" x 8" x 3" (x, y, z) size. 2.5k for...

    Do you motorcyclists split lanes?

    I had a run in a year or two ago with a motorcyclist who, I'm guessing, felt I was trying to 'pinch' him as he split a lane on my right.
