I dont know what I will do... I've always blogged about my life at beansbaxter.com, but it's good to have a blogging spot here on PNW Riders too.

I'll chime in on topics ranging from the forum, my motorcycle, my camera, and my life.

Enjoy.

800cc Sportbike

Posted 10-11-2008 at 10:22 AM by beansbaxter (Blogging by beansbaxter)

If the manufacturers made an 800cc sportbike, would you ride it?

Imagine...

a Honda CBR 800RR
a Kawasaki ZX-8R
a Suzuki GSXR 800
a Yamaha YZF-R8

Thoughts?

2009 Honda VFR 1000

Posted 10-10-2008 at 08:57 PM by beansbaxter (Blogging by beansbaxter)

So what happened to the 2009 VFR 1000 that was suppose to be released? I've been hearing about this bike for the last few years, and everyone seemed determined that this bike was for sure coming out finally in 2009. But nope, nothing from the Honda camp, as all the new bikes have been announced.

This bike has turned out to be more overrated than David Hasselhoff - even MCN went on record saying this bike was coming out this year.

I guess for next year, we should look...

Anyone remember the game, 'Columns'?

Forget the Sega for a second...

I just pulled another all nighter, and besides being hella beat, I've been working on a flood of bug updates to the forum.

Things are loading fast AND I've finally got the left column implemented on the Forum Index page.

There is a lot of center dead space on the Forum Index page, so I pushed it in some to accommodate a left-side column. As of now, the column shows the last 10 threads in the General Discussion, as wel...

Don't Turn Around

Posted 12-24-2007 at 04:10 AM by beansbaxter (Blogging by beansbaxter)

I always seem to be up in the wee hours of the morning working on the forum, both the software and the hardware surrounding it. This latest round of updates has kept me on the forum fixing issues and bugs and providing support...

But as the title of this blog shows, I have to secretly admit that Internet radio is the way cool... especially when I seem to find myself listening to Ace of Base every time this forum maintenance is going on.

A new Nikon for 2008...

Posted 12-23-2007 at 10:36 PM by beansbaxter (Blogging by beansbaxter)

An early Christmas gift to myself... since I am trying to get better at the photography thing, and I love the opportunity to take pictures as I feel it enriches the multimedia of the forum when the pictures look good...

So today I acted on a slight impulse and decided not to get the new Nikon D3. The only reason is because Nikon rumors are flying that Spring of 2008 will see the new Nikon D3X and this will be the true flagship Nikon camera for the next two years. I've had an opportunity...

The new PNW Riders theme...

Posted 12-23-2007 at 03:15 AM by beansbaxter (Blogging by beansbaxter)

I have been running the new look of the forum for over a month now, but I am pleased to bring it to the live site...page load has been decreased by over half of the previous theme on the site so things should be loading much faster!

There are still some graphical tweaks, icons, buttons, etc. that I will be working on over the next few days.

The best part about Christmas is I get more keyboard time, so all I do is sit and work on this stuff.

I've been...
