As far as I'm concerned-coffee is just an excuse for me to drink half and half!:)

Biker395 03-11-13 09:26 AM

Coffee is good.

Coffee with a little JD is better.

Dan Burkhart 03-11-13 10:42 AM

so I sez to the waitress, "coffee please,no cream."
Sez she, "I'm sorry sir,we don't have any cream. It will have to be no milk, will that be alright?"

BluesDawg 03-11-13 11:26 AM

Black. No sugar. Coffee with milk or creamer and sugar is not coffee, it's a liquid candy bar. Almost as bad as adding Coke to whiskey. :notamused:

Cappuccino is OK with a slice of pie, but espresso is the only decent black coffee.

The search function for BFs yields mixed results. I actually have greater success searching BFs using google or bing. So I encourage posters do a search but I realize that they will often not find what they are looking for.

The touring forum thread only has 5 replies and is dead. Yes they tried to help the OP and did note that their size 13 and 14 feet did not overlap their LHT. Thing is, I suspect they have a much larger size frame which makes a big difference. Yes they did address best they could ONE aspect of the OP.

The 50+ thread gave a much greater wealth of information for the OP with many alternate considerations.

It would have been sad if the mods moved the 50+ thread to touring and the OP missed out on the 26 replies from here. Is that not sufficient to complain about the recent moving of 50+ threads to other forums?

Did you also note that the thread the OP updated to, was the 50+ thread?

I did originally think you were downing the Touring thread, that they'd offered no assistance. I'm not really interested in debating a critical evaluation of both threads. I think both offerred assistance to the OP. Had I been him, I'd have stuck with the 50+ thread, too, to continue my part of the dialogue.

I'm never happy about moving threads if the issue is not cut and dried, and in 50+ it rarely if ever is. But I've been in these battles a few times over my years here, and the Modular Motivation to Adjust will not go away, and neither will human nature. I'm interested in fighting to get a better perch for my butt, not in maintaining my vision of how 50+ should be. It's only MY vision, after all, and I don't own 50+ or BF. The Head Mod at least is employed by the owner of 50+. You can fight City Hall, but sometimes it ain't worth it.

Coke should only be added to rum.

I like Coke with my Coke.

kehomer 03-11-13 01:01 PM

I just skimmed over the previous posts. I have two things to say:
(1) Thank goodness that many 50+ members still have a healthy sense of humor!:cheers::cheers:
(2) This thread is a failure, entirely too organized, too structured. Sig Heil!

Only if you're too young to legally drink alcohol.

Coconut rum is not rum

RonH 03-11-13 06:08 PM

I'm not concerned about coffee or beer. This scares me. :innocent:

If you have to add coke, you are drinking the wrong rum..;)

Back when I COULD drink soda, beer, etc..... Ah a can of Moxie!!! better than Dr. Pepper any day:thumb: Now I'm happy my heart doc lets me have two coffees/day.

Dan Burkhart 03-12-13 09:27 AM

Won't say I never drink coke or other soft drinks, but I go easy on them for a very simple reason. Over the years, I've had occasion to haul extracts and other ingredients that go into these drinks, and some of them are placardable hazmat!!!
Really? And we drink this stuff?

I thought that's what Southern Comfort and Squirt was for.

Actually, I haven't had hard liquor in probably 35 years. I just don't care for it. Someone gave me a taste of some scotch once that was supposed to be very good. I thought it tasted like liquid dust.

And Crown Royal tastes like something somebody washed dirty socks in! The only hard liquor I've ever been able to drink is Drambhoui, and that only rarely.

In bulk form, or eaten or drunk in excess, just about everything that you can eat or drink is hazardous to your health.
