While Dan gets serious about his brewery, I have gotten serious about my motorcycling hobby too. After recently investing some time and monies to tune it, I realized I have done little to invest any time or monies to protect myself aside from buying a helmet the day I bought the bike. 8 years ago. So, for my own birthday and christmas I opted to gear up with a new helmet, one piece riding suit, safety vest with spine armor, and new boots.

I figure if I am going to ride as much as I can through this fall/winter/spring season, I need as much protection as I can get.

Dan, how much are you in the hole on that electric set up so far? I'm considering doing the same, but haven't really started looking into it. Just want to get a feel for what I'm in for when I do switch over.

I had to opt out of the emails cause they kept taunting me with deals.

Didn't happen if there's no pics. I'm picturing something like GilaStig.

So far, only the helmet has been delivered.

The pot was my HLT so that has been paid for long ago. About 20 dollars for the heating element, some wire, a plug. It's only 1500 watts though. I'm not going to try to boil with it.

Thanks NB!.

After doing this I read some of the electric build threads, my simple electric HLT is kingergarten level compared to the builds on this site! I fired it up tonight (while smoking a pipe of course) and was able to heat 5 gallons to 175 degrees in 55 minutes. Nothing spectacular but it sure was quiet and will serve it's purpose for 5 a gallon batch's mash and sparge water.

I'm just having fun, this has sparked my interest in a full on electric build someday. Now time to start doing much more reading.

Cheers man! Looking like the beers I'm going to send are falling way behind schedule, but promise you'll get them before ... Christmas?

Great idea GMB! I fully believe in seatbelts in cars and trucks and aeroplanes and "Buckle up - It's the Law!" Kind of ironic that those of us on bikes can ride with minimal gear other than a helmet. And in some states helmets aren't even required. I used to cringe when I lived in Hawaii and saw people riding down the road in flip-flops, shorts, tank top and no helmet! Certainly a cool factor there but come on people!

Okay, dumb question. I know you mentioned your ride but not sure what it is street/racer/dirtbike?
