How many Jeep Grand Cherokee trims do you need? How many Jeep Grand Cherokee trims do you need?

All the recent FCA posts on the FP got me doing some unnecessary car shopping and I stumbled across the Jeep Grand Cherokee configurator. You can pick from 8 different trims! 8!!! Why??

Over the weekend we sold my girlfriend’s CBR250R. Sad! But good riddance as well. Hot take: this is not a great beginner’s bike.

These show up at cars not coffee all the time but still not an everyday sighting on the road.

Yamaha FZ6R. It did the job well enough for me and my girlfriend on the back. There are some fantastic roads on Maui here with no tourists if you know where to go.

It's a work from home kind of day It's a work from home kind of day

The weather is garbage with thick, wet snowflakes that will turn into rain come evening. It’s been a busy week and today is no different. Here’s an artsy-fartsy GIF of my reward when today’s over, a nice bottle of Redbreast Irish whiskey.

For Sale: One Little Honda, and One Big Dream For Sale: One Little Honda, and One Big Dream

This was a long time coming - over the weekend we finally put my girlfriend’s bike up for sale. Although I was never a huge fan of the little CBR250R, letting go of this motorcycle most likely marks the end of her riding career. It’s the correct step, but I’m kinda bummed about it either way.

Looking back on a full year of cycling Looking back on a full year of cycling

#humblebrag, but I feel like I kinda get to. I rode my bicycle to work nearly every day for almost a year regardless of conditions. It was fun, difficult, sometimes scary, but kept me sane because I hate driving in the city and contributing to the problem of traffic. Not to mention the sense of accomplishment. My…

Hour Rule Hour Rule

My first bike, a Ninja 400R. Sold to my co-worker and made way for my next Kawasaki, a ZX-6R.

The saddest thing I ever did see The saddest thing I ever did see

Found on Facebook Marketplace. “Car”. Goddamn. Sure, many people are selling their ride on FB but at least put a little bit of effort into it. The description reads

Since everyone is doing it... New helmet! Since everyone is doing it... New helmet!

Gearing up to do a track day which would’ve happened at the end of last year’s season had my ZX-6R not been stolen. My Shoei GT-Air is a great street helmet that has a drop-down sun visor so that means it only meets DOT specs and not ECE, making it track-ineligible. I went shopping and tried on a few Icon and HJC lids…

Because that’s all I took. Because the show has become so stale I don’t think I need to go back for another 5 years.

She sits there, quietly. Ten cylinders emitting no noise. Soon enough dust to write “wash me”. I say “Hello, R8" every time I pass by, but never get a response.

How to hide comments on the Jalop FP How to hide comments on the Jalop FP

Fed up with dumb opinion pieces on the Jalopnik FP inspiring dumpster fires in the comments section? Well suffer no more! It seems Kinja changed something and I’m now able to hide the comments module. Two fire trucks from very different locations for your time.

Before I put the bike away I took a picture Before I put the bike away I took a picture

I’m no photographer nor do I claim to be, but I really like how this one turned out. I took it with my LG V30 phone and brought it into paint.net for minor contrast and brightness adjustments.

It's cold but not cold enough It's cold but not cold enough

It was about 2°C last night. That’s just under 36 Fahrenheit for y’all. The fingers and toes got pretty chilly but there’s no snow and salt on the ground yet... So I’ll keep on riding.
