my first problem is how in the hell do you get drive thru food????
when it gets about 1:00 am and i feel the need to run to the border(taco bell to those with out tv:twofinger ) i just cant figure out a way of getting my nachos and pop home with out droping them on the way home. serious help please these munchies are killing me!!!!:finger:
also i was at work a couple days ago driving around and i saw this kid ( i live in omaha and council bluffs iowa is just like ten minutes away) and i just had to laugh. as for those of you who dont know iowa has no helmet laws and nebraska does, but iowa has a strict seat belt law..go figure:confused: . any ways this kid was doing like seventy over this bridge and just as he got to the iowa side he started taking his helmet off while riding doing 70mph so he takes it off and puts his arm thru the bottem and out the front and keeps going with his helmet on his arm. iwas either wondering if his brain was in his elbow or how completly stupid this kid was. i just dont get it. also i was talking to this other guy from somewhere(i work at a hotel) about helmets and he said he doesnt wear them around town because of lack of vision and that you will probly survive a 35mph crash.
i just wanted to open up the door on the van i was driving and throw him out just to show him. damn why are some people so anal about helmets . sorry i know im beating a dead horse on posts about helmets but im really conscerned about the whole taco bell thing:twofinger

Heres the only help i can offer, if this still applies to the bell.
Nachos come in a little paper bag, and the cheese comes in a seperate container right? And if you're like me, you wont buy just one order of nachos(i can imagine a kid with "resident fat kid" under his name buying just one). I need like 3 or 4. First thing is you need a backback. Second thing is, just forget the pop. Those big cups and cheap lids are dying to spill. Id just get 2 big ziplock bags, put the cups of cheese in one, and the chips in the other.Then proceed to put those in a tupperwear container. It might seem like overkill, but do you really want that cheese all over the place? Thats the best i can come up with:(

Make an extra stop.

I don't go for taco bell myself but I do buy sub sandwitches. Basically just make an extra trip for the pop. Go to the supermarket and get a 2-litre and then toss it in the bottom of the backpack with the sub sandwitch on top in it's plactic bag.

Pick yourself an appropriately sized cardboard or plasic box and glue some magnets on the bottom. Pop that baby on your tank and go order whatever you like. Put in tall-sided box and ride off.

Go riding with your Syncrotech helmet and flip up the faceshield when you want to take a few bites.

Tape a can in the corner for a cup-holder.

This would also hold "sand-wizards"...

I live in NY (helmets required) but work in CT (helmets optional) and used to see that alot, but haven't seen it in a while, and at the last big bike meet I went to almost all of the riders were sporting lids, even HD guys with full faces, although it was overcast and threatening to rain,

you should ask those types if they are as talented at putting their helmets on as they are taking them off, while they are just about to slide into something,

I often stuff Taco Bell into my jacket which is a First Gear Kilamanjaro and has enough room in it for a good size order, W/O the drink which I substitute with something else, but you might have less room in your jacket.

I have an old canvas bag that I strap to the rear of the bike. I take my lunch to work, pickup gallons of milk, whatever. As long as you carefully position the strap you're cool. Looks a bit dorky, but who cares.

I never wear any of my protective gear, I just keep it in a backpack. When I think I am about to crash, I take off my sandals and put them in the tank bag (they are expensive and I don't want them to get damaged) and then put the leather pants on over my shorts. Next I put my jacket on and as I am flying through the air I affix the lid and cinch up my gloves just prior to touchdown. Haven't had any problems yet.

I occasionally get fast food on my bike. Wendy's is my fast food of choice. My Kawasaki has a fairing stay behind the triple clamp/above the tank. I just toss the fast food bag on the triple clamp (fairing stay and windscreen kinda keep it there) and set the cup on the tank, resting against the fairing stay. I Take off slowly, then once the clutch is all the way out, Hold the cup with my left hand and shift without the clutch. If your careful, you can balance the cup there without your hand, you just have to set up your turns carefully. :)
