    what software do people here use to track their mutual fund performances? my needs are relatively simple: basically shift things between bonds and index funds.

    I just glance at the Fidelity website now & then. I'd be nervous having much in bonds these days.

    gotcha.

    btw, why the nervousness with bonds? Or are you referring to specific index with a not so good rating?

    Interest rates are so low (thus prices are high) that I don't imagine there's much upside. Short term are safer, but not much yield.

    Disclaimer: I don't know what the heck I'm talking about.

    Well, inflation-adjusted, sure. But also, I'm a for-real bike racer, not some Central Park poseur.

    Harleys don't leak, they mark their spot.

    Reminds me of an ad I saw offering coffee cups with logos from vintage motorcycles like Greeves, Triumph, Matchless, and AJS. In small print it said "no, the AJS cup doesn't leak".

    My Triumph didn't leak even though it was manufactured during the days of the Meriden Worker's Cooperative when the workers were more interested in striking than in the quality of the machining. The secret: when I built it I used Yamabond #4 on the joints.

    used this on the crankcases of all my race bikes. I raced 2-strokes and air leaks were no bueno.

    I had a Husqvarna 390 and the center case cracked on one side where the cylinder studs went and the cylinder tried to lift off, kinda like the old Volkswagens did.

    I wish I could talk about when I raced motorcycles. I can't because I never did. Barely rode one (twice, in parking lots). I think I'd die on one if I were to get one.

    I still have some motorcycle magazines so I can look wistfully at articles and pictures.

    My old roommate Chris D'Aluisio raced them for a while with some success.

    He was pretty good on a bicycle too.

    ^he was a good 250 rider.

    in the process of packing for our move; really doing some serious "cleaning". Ive been getting rid of tons, literally. Sold my welder, generators, big compressor, and giving away a lot of tools specific to my old 2 cycle race bikes (flywheel pullers, clutch holders, leak-down testers etc). Only keeping pictures and maybe the bins of wood/plastic that I was rewarded for risking life and limb. And keeping one pair of old leathers that saved my skin a few times. One last high-side crash in '01 blew the ass out and they were retired...

    Like with bicycles, I never raced but I rode with racers and trained to try and keep up in the desert. I started riding bicycles to improve my fitness so I wouldn't get so tired on the mc. You'd be surprised how aerobic it is riding whoop dee doos for 3 hours.
    I never thought I was good enough to race and I was too much of a wuss. I did ride desert nearly every weekend for 10 years. Some great memories there.

    I learned to ride a motorcycle on a Bultaco Sherpa T at the dump.
