I had been leaning towards the Vegas for the better part of last year. I'm an ex-enduro rider so took to the mid-mount instantly when i sat on the Judge. it was the reach to the bars that almost did my stubby arms in...now i rock this ever so slight lean and mean position...really glad i didn't swap bars before giving it a shot.
Yes sir us Canadians have a beer machine...dollar (coin no less) in beer comes out. But the only people who really get to have a few wets at sea are day workers. You need minimum 6 hours before your next shift to have your "2 beer per man per day". When you're a shifty bastard like me, who works 5hrs on 5 off / 7hrs on 7 off, the only time i catch myself having a beer is when i can't sleep. But speaking of young kids these days, after the CO deems it (usually 4am in foreign port) when alongside they put a lock on the beer machine. Some shit head decided to pry the lock, then proceeded to break into the galley and left the freezer open. So we lost the beer machine, locked out tagged out. We just can't have nice things.
Long live the oval
