Pretty decent weekend I'd say. Is it spring yet? Of course, the weather has been quite different for our locations.

Much better, as I had my first food today since Friday afternoon. Last time I went that long without eating was when I hurt my back and was in so much pain I didn't leave the floor/couch from a Friday evening to a Monday morning. Those 2 months of agony I went from 185 lbs down to 160. Pretty thin for a 6'2" guy.

Dangit, I just realized I have inadvertently derailed this thread toward the lounge. Back to Arcimoto. We can talk movies in another thread

Xist is OP, so we should do what he says. But my son and I have a long history with movies. I took him out of school on a Thursday at 10am so he could see the first local showing of Empire Strikes back. We used to go to movies on Christmas Eve.

I don't care for movies so much today, what with the politics and all. Where Capt. Marvell has Sue Danvers touched by a noodly appendage and turned into a Mary Sue, Alita goes through real growth as a character. I'd put Alita: Battle Angel on a level with The Matrix and Blade Runner, one level below 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I want to put three of my Marathon/ wheels on an FUV:

Someone mentioned the Archie in another thread and I created this one, but I am not in a position to purchase a new vehicle, so this is more an intellectual curiosity than anything else.

Maybe a dedicated thread would interest people that do not follow the Arcimoto.

Some threads get derailed, but I do not see that being a problem here.

Spring starts April 2nd according to Eaglerider Portland. That is when they start renting motorcycles.

It was a fantastic weekend in Cannon Beach. 50F, Sunny, no wind.

Tell Aricomoto to put rentals in Cannon Beach or Seaside and I'll try one in May. I was thinking about bringing my E-bike but I'm worried about salting it up too much riding the beach and securing it all the time on an exterior hitch rack.
So freaking cold here but at least sunny today. 17 degrees in the sun feels pretty good after last week. We have urban avalanche warnings in place now for crying out loud.

Just A Car Guy: the weatherman says another countrywide snow storm is coming, so, if you aren't sure you'll be ok, arrange now for a friend or family to check in on you every day
