Getting 16 In Ape Hangers Installed Today

I have been wanting to get some Ape Hangers ever since I bought this bike back in 2012. I finally bit the bullet and ordered the parts, $300, and dropped it off at the Hogg Shop. Got a call to come in and get fitted for them. So I took a pic while it is still being worked on.

I can’t wait to get this baby on the road.

If you own a motorcycle, send me your pics. I would love to put them up on the blog. You can send them to sjmobilemediabiz@gmail.com

Be sure to tell me the bike info and your name.

Don’t Try This At Home

I like buying things off Groupon.com as much as I can. You can find some great deals. So when my wife asked me to get her an elliptical machine for her to workout, I figured that this would be a great time to check Groupon and see if I can save some money.

I went to the Groupon site and did a search for elliptical’s and found several to choose from. The price ranged anywhere from $399 to $2200. I had wanted the BowFlex Max Trainer personally and they run about $1700 for the M5, which is the mid level machine, but she thought that machine would be to difficult for her. So I found the Freemotion e5.5 elliptical for $599, which is great cuz if she loses interest in it I won’t be out to much money. Like I said I personally wanted the Max Trainer, I would have used that baby also. I paid the $599, and they offered a set up service for an additional $99, which I passed on. I would later regret that decision.

So I ordered it and received it and received it today. The box it came in weighed about 350 lbs and was about 7 ft long. The driver who delivered it said he would only help me get it inside the front door, no further. So we dragged it in and it was not easy. That thing felt like a ton.

I opened the box thinking that it would be mostly assembled, wrong. It came in about 20 pieces. I assembled all the pieces in the room it was to be set up in. I wasn’t in the mood to put it together, so I left it and took a nap. Once my wife got home I showed what we were up against and started to attempt to put it together. It was a b&#%&. You have to lift it up and attach to brackets, which are impossible to do by yourself. I spent about 3 hours getting those two pieces on with the help of my wife.

I finally gave up when I could’ figure out which bolts they wanted me to use to put the dashboard on with. The bolts looked nothing like the instruction manual pics. I came to the conclusion that this wasn’t going to happen. Luckily they included a number to their set up service. I gave them a call at 11:15pm and the very nice lady who answered said that will be $187 to have someone come out to put it together. I said what happened to the $99 service? Well, you only get that when you are ordering. After that you pay full retail.

I was also informed that it was a two man job, duh. So the moral of the story is when you are offered a set up service in the initial order, take it. I wish I had. I can usually put stuff together with no problem, but I should have realized this was going to be more than I could handle. I could have spent that 3 hours playing Xbox or something.

2016 A New Year

udemy3It’s 2016, a new year is upon us. I hope 2015 was as good to you as it was to me. The holiday’s are over, everyone is getting back into their routine.

Now is as good of a time to rededicate to your business or start a new one. People like you and me love online business. It’s my passion. I love learning new things and learning online has become easier.

Right now you can go to Udemy.com and get any course you want for just $10.   That deal will last till the 11th of January. So if you have been wanting to learn HTML5 & CSS, Ruby on Rails, PHP, C# or How To Bake Cake. You can get really good courses for $10.

After the 11th they go back to their normal pricing. I am taking $597 worth of nurses for $20 right now. I signed up for “The Complete Unity Developer” which teaches you how to develop games using Unity 3D and I also signed up for “The Web Developer Bootcamp” to learn more about developing my own websites.

My plans are to develop my own game for my own traffic exchanges. I get tired of having to farm out those projects. I like doing my own work, but I lack the knowledge, but not for long.

You can do the same thing. But don’t wait, get in now while it’s still just $10. Head on over to Udemy.com and find something you are interested in and get signed up. This is not some sales pitch, I don’t make a dime. I just feel it is important to pass on good info when I have it.
