I sold my GoPro since I was planning on eventually getting a Contour camera. I recommend looking into them. The construction is much better than GoPro and I think they are more versatile.

If he's looking for low miles, mine isn't exactly like WRXtc4y's, it has about 78k on it atm. Lower than average I guess, but not extremely low lol.

Kyle, that is very tempting I've never driven any CBRs but have always heard they are great bikes.

Not true. The Iowa bill died in March 2010, and is not being pushed this year...

You're welcome Jeff haha

Adam - The CBR is a really nice ride, its really comfortable. The 07 is the first year of its body style which is like 20 or 30 pounds lighter then the year before. I am the original owner, i just dont ride it much. It is completely stock, never been dropped or laid down.

technically you are right. if it's blended (with ethanol) it's at least 10%.

the other are not blends...

I always run 87 in my car, it's a little more expensive because it doesn't have the ethanol in it, but I get a lot better mileage. I run 91 no ethanol in the baja, but it doesn't get driven hard lol.

In case some of you guys aren't on the DMVR forums, we (Subarus) got a lot of recognition from Sunday's auto-x. They were pretty pumped to see a lot of us out there and were generally pretty impressed with our mad driving skillz! Adventureland this upcomig weekend, even if you don't race, come out to watch!

Just thought I'd pass along that we are getting some good publicity!

Zing, burn, and snap! I didn't run my car and I'm part of "we", though.

So, who's letting me drive at Adventureland?

I was just getting ready to post something almost identical to this. But I would have been cool enough to post this link so people can actually read it.

I'm not sure if I'm running this weekend due to finances, but you can drive my car again.

See above. If I don't run it, you and Ed can drive it.
