    This is true... SNOW SUCKS!!!!

    But for myself, I have had every spare minute of my life consumed by my work. And the end won't be even close until July.

    Plus I spend quite a bit of time just reading everyone elses stuff doing the moderator thing. Not that this site is hard to moderate, but i do "try" to read all the new posts.

    Run, do not walk, to the nearest video rental store and pick up a copy today. I'm not saying "The Dude" is you, but you will identify.

    Found this.......


    The Big Lebowski (1998)
    Directed by
    Joel Coen

    Writing credits
    Ethan Coen &
    Joel Coen



    Jeff Bridges .... Jeff Lebowski (The Dude)
    John Goodman .... Walter Sobchak
    Julianne Moore .... Maude Lebowski
    Steve Buscemi .... Donny
    David Huddleston .... Jeffrey Lebowski (The Big Lebowski)
    Philip Seymour Hoffman .... Brandt
    Tara Reid .... Bunny Lebowski
    Philip Moon .... Woo, Treehorn Thug
    Mark Pellegrino .... Blond Treehorn Thug
    Peter Stormare .... Nihilist #1
    Flea .... Nihilist #2
    Torsten Voges .... Nihilist #3
    Jimmie Dale Gilmore .... Smokey
    Jack Kehler .... Marty
    John Turturro .... Jesus Quintana

    The Coen brothers (Joel and Ethan) are the most innovative and, perhaps, the best filmmakers working today. Or they at least rank along side the likes of Martin Scorsese and rising director star Quentin Tarantino. Think about it: "Blood Simple" was the best film of 1984; "Raising Arizona" was the best film of 1987; "Miller's Crossing" was the best movie of 1990; "Barton Fink" was the best movie of 1991; and "Fargo" was the best movie of 1996. Now comes their latest effort, "The Big Lebowski," which, while it isn't in quite the same league as the above films, is still one of the most thoroughly entertaining movies of 1998.

    It tells the shambling story of a man named Jeff Lebowski, who calls himself The Dude (Jeff Bridges). The Dude's apartment gets broken into and a thief urinates on his rug. He finds out that the criminals were not looking for him, but looking for the OTHER Jeff Lebowski, the disabled millionaire (played by David Huddleston). That's all I can tell you. The rest is really too bizarre and complicated to put into words; but it's bizarre and complicated in the best ways of the words.

    Still, what I'll remember most about "The Big Lebowski" is the outstanding number of utterly terrific performances. Bridges delivers the best performance of his career and probably the best of the year as a bum lie-about who just wants to be left alone. John Goodman is the real comic gem here as the forever-loudmouthed Walter, The Dude's bowling partner and best friend. Steve Buscemi co-stars as the dimwitted, bug-eyed Donny, the third bowling partner; there's a small but interestingly offbeat spot for Julianne Moore; and John Torturro stops in, as Jesus the bowler, for what is probably the best walk-on performance in years. If you are a Coen brothers fan or like humor that is distinctly offbeat, you have found your movie. As a rather avid moviegoer, I found the film to be a great excersise in pointless extremeties and respectable raunch.

    ...whoops, sorry, thought I was still here.

    Well I think I have it figured out why there's little traffic on the fizzyhead thread. Besides only being 3 of us here....counting PJFZ1 which he rarely shows up....the bike is solid with little problems. Seat nice and comfy.....windscreen just right....no broken frames.....seat cowl not flying off.....airbox is fine.......4into 1 already installed.....2 adjustable front forks....and if you don't screw with the carbs it's smooth with little vibes. Oh yeah we have a perty blue color no orange or green
    Well you asked and I had time on my hands.

    I like a lot of the FZ6's looks!!! Undertail and FI are great. Front farring could be a little more streamlined for my taste. But over all a very nice machine.

    I know what you mean on the fairing(and looks). I think its actually a optical illusion as the fairing is very swept with clean lines. Its that the whole front face of it is clear that throws it off.
    I will paint a section of mine on the underside to give it more of a solid color... Oh, and no buffeting whatsoever.
    Plus the lower fairing, next to the headlights has openings for airflow- supposedly for bike stability at higher speeds.
    The FZ6 IS price pointed, so it has non-adjustable suspension and more basic brakes.
    But plenty competent for me...
