Re: Because DWC members know their shit: Motorcycle questions - what to get for my first real bike

If you’re going to ride any dirt areas, I’d buy used. It’s not a chance of “if” you get in an accident or drop the bike but more of “when”. Kinda like riding with clip in pedals. You’ll forget something, get caught “juggling” a decision or just not pay full attention and “poof” there you go. Sent fr...

Re: Panerai CEO plans for 2020

They need to fix the mess they made of the standard Luminor models. Snap on back and spring bars on a Panerai is unacceptable. This was a huge turn off when I got mine. I could deal with the spring bars but let’s not cut it to 100m of WR. Still kept it bc of sentimental value and wear it all the ti...

Re: Panerai CEO plans for 2020

No brand needs 40+ new models. They’re losing focus of the brand and becoming another Invicta but priced 9,999 higher.

Re: ETA movement repair?

Drink 6 of the same beers, plus an additional 1-3 for good measure and try again. I think your (beer) googles may have been a bit out of alignment and with 1-3 more, this should properly align them for fixing the watch.

Re: Groomsmen Gift

Honestly if you do watches they only will wear the tux on the big day, so don’t be a slave to style. Get something cool, but special, and they will use all the time and think of you. Ares might be a cool choice if it’s in the budget. The venerable Seiko SKX at a lower price point. Matching natos? T...

Groomsmen Gift

Anyone have any good ideas for a groomsmen gift? I was thinking of watches for them (6) but don’t want to go too pricey or overboard. Also in tuxes so they’d have to go well with that.

Thanks guys!

Nice to see T-bone. I love Maryland but wouldn’t retire there since they tax your social security. Thrasher’s are by far, the best fries. If you make the move, or come visit again, hit me up.

Re: Seriously...come on

The luxury market for cars hasn’t gone up, IMO, as much as the standard manufacturers. BMW X3 priced around 50k, moderately equipped. Or get a rubicon for 60k. Again, different buyers but I don’t think many of the luxury brands have gone up quite as bad as the standard. Sent from my iPhone using Tap...

Re: SUV/Crossover Suggestions

The only negative is the Honda Pilot is loud (louder with wind and road noise than my Tacoma). For this reason I might consider looking at the Acura MDX (which I think is the same platform as the Pilot, just with better sound deadening and upgraded interior / accessories). Our Pilot was also kind o...

Are you looking to lease or buy? Assuming buy with your price range and if the commute is that far.

My car has it. You have to disable it each time you get in the car. Not a big deal to me, just like putting on a seat belt.

Buchon was nothing special. Ad Hoc was a little more accessible than French Laundry. Bottega was pretty good and more casual.
