    They are Aluminum coils and depending on the wrap and gauge, you can fold over the edges. I'm not saying loose straps. I'm saying I'm not hanging off the bar and bouncing on it.

    They get fat.......and usually stay that way.....lol

    That's the great thing about America, no shortage of fat folks....usually women. It does make me laugh to see the 150lbs dude with the 400lbs chick. Walmart is good for people watching....lol

    There are many reasons for it. Number one is marriage. Most women find a decent guy and let themselves go while living on easy street. Most guys don't have enough self respect to say anything. Sad really. Yes, most Americans are fat in general. An easy life with an abundance of cheap food. If you've ever been to Europe to compare, it'd pretty amusing. Goto a restaurant there and their portion sizes are like half of ours here.

    You are right about American women don't take good care of their bodies specially after they have babies... very different from Brazilian women... they take pleasure in looking attractive.
    I feel kinda sorry for the American guys...
    Also, I see a huge difference between supermarkets in America n in Brasil... the amount of industrialized processed food in American supermarkets is gigantic... :biggrin_2556:. Don't see much variety of produce and veggies and spices... :biggrin_25512:
    Also American cuisine IMO is pretty dull... mostly meat, everything fried, lots of cheese and bread...
    If you see the variety of fruits n leaves and herbs and vegetables n roots n grains that one can find in a single everyday street fair here in Brasil you would be amazed.... this is a tropical country and there is abundance of everything that one can grow in the soil..
    So, besides eating mostly junk, unhealthy food, Americans don't walk.... it's a car oriented nation... there is very little mass transportation n cities don't even have sidewalks... . :biggrin_25512:

    Oh I know. I use chain protectors on everything. They protect your chain to. I laugh often when you see the tow motor or crane damage. Yet love to hang a driver for chain marks. No one wants to talk about Timmy slamming them around. I just cover my rear allways. Bad damage I take pictures of. And for God sakes have a freight bill that the except and sign.

    West Memphis taking a break. 40is shutdown on bridge. To add insult to injury, 55 S has a lane closed at bridge. Some O/D load is stuck. Can’t go forward or backwards. Freaking mess. Westbound is ok until it thickens some of course
