    Neighbors Threatening to Sue Over Noise

    If your neighbor really expects complete peace and quiet and is willing to go to great lengths to get her way, you're in a hard place. How much time and money are you willing to spend to win? Are you willing to stop using your garage for anything other than parking cars until this is resolved...

    Moving: help me choose where

    Yes, California is one of the hardest, most expensive states to work with. Energy costs are radically higher, real estate is more expensive, filing fees with the state are a multiple of other places. These factors played into my decision to leave when I did. What I have found is that while...

    Utah to So Cal on dirt

    Wow, what's the estimated mileage looking like if you avoid as much pavement as possible? I've driven LA to to SLC/PC a couple of times, and have wondered about what you're planning more than once.

    forks slapping

    It sounds like something is allowing a hard top out. I don't know what brand/year of forks you have, but that's sometimes the result of something not being built/rebuilt correctly. When you call them you might want to say that the forks are topping out hard or some variant of that.
