Is a RZR cool for this board?

If you don't know what a RZR is, don't ask. This is a thread looking for any interest with a RZR. Sound off if you have/want/are getting one.

I hope someone comes in to talk about how they love how the RZR is so thin it can fit in their pocket.

The RZR ATV, on the other hand, is just about the best toy out there. That 760cc engine would be a TON of fun on the beaches and into the mountains around here. Want? Yes. Have or getting one? Nah, I don't have that kind of disposable income for an ATV.

They're cool, but if I was going to spend the 10k on an off road vehicle, I'd bite the bullet and build a Jeep CJ

Due to the fact that when it was released people were dropping $800-$1000 on eBay for the RAZR, I always though it was a gimmick. Who the hell cares how thin a phone is? I saw it as the descendant of the T720, which I never really liked aside from the fact that selling one pulled in about $25 commission and another $20 for a transaction that involved someone signing a Verizon contract.

The first time my contract was up for renewal, though, I had the option of getting a KRZR for free with the NE2 discount. The sales woman pointed out its features, let my play with a live display model, and demonstrated the nearly indestructible quartz glass on the outside. I got it, figuring that I had owned two Motorola phones before and knew how to reprogram and tweak them.

I got sick of the Verizon OS after about two months and reflashed to the Alltel firmware, which was the Motorola OS with a few changes it pretty much worked, but there were minor glitches and bugs. Earlier this year, I was overjoyed when the factory firmware was leaked, even though it was BREW-only and didn't support Java. It interfaced perfectly with Phone Tools and Radiocomm, and I was able to figure out what most of the P2K and service flags do. I rewrote the power saving profile, extending my battery life to about 13 days standby, and dove headfirst into other features. It's nice to be the only one with service in a lot of places, which is no problem after disabling analog mode and boosting the transmitter to 1.5 watts from the stock half 500mW.

Unfortunately, even the durable KRZR couldn't stand up to my abuse. The quartz glass is long gone, the snap-on plastic panels are missing, and the back/rewind front panel control for the mp3 player doesn't work anymore (not a big deal since I don't use it as a music player.) I'd recommend it to hacking/tweaking fans because of everything you can do with it, but the Verizon OS on Motorola hardware is a disaster if you don't restart the phone by popping the battery two or three times a day. For my next phone, I'm porting over to a Sprint SERO plan ($30/mo for 50 minutes and unlimited data/txt/pix plus free voice and data roaming onto any US network) and getting an HTC Touch.

I just got a RIZR... I Love it! Much better than my LG Chocolate (European edition) and definitely better than the LG flip I had... I don't use the MP3 player because it's the suXorZ. I still use my iPod.

Like I said, I was always a fan of Motorola, but they're not releasing anything CDMA with a full keyboard other than the Q, which doesn't appeal to me.

If they pulled their heads out of their asses and made something to compete with the ENV or Voyager, I'd probably get one.

I use a Schick Titanium Quattro and only shave down. Permanent 5 o'clock shadow looks OK on me, so it's no big deal. I do what I can to find $50 in my budget every few months for a Clinique men's shaving kit plus a tube of extra strength face wash. Exfoliant, shaving cream, and post-shave soother come in the kit, and combined with the wash, I can manage a down stroke and an across stroke to get it really close. The best thing I've seen for razor burn is Tend Skin, which clears up 90% of razor burn in about 3 minutes.

You are right - It's all about the angle - I kept getting eat up on my mustache with my Gillette 5-blade Titanium vibrating edition. One day, I decided to go at it horizontal instead of vertical, problem solved - ten times better, no RZR burn.

The mustache is the one place I can safely shave up. I use the single blade on the back of the Quattro. The vibrating razors never really worked too well for me, even though I thought they were great at first.

should this thread be moved to tilted life? my friend introduced me to the laziest yet most awesome shave, known as the bum shave. just get the usual clippers and shave on setting zero, or without any attachment. instant 5 oclock shadow. takes less that a minute to shave and for the slight hobo look its perfect.
