My scooter now has a refrigerator!!!! Well technically it is a thermo-electric cooler/warmer but it works!!! I went to Wal-Mart yesterday and got the little unit for under $40. Now I can bring my own refreshments with me. It will hold 8 12oz cans or 4 bottles of soda :wink:. I had gotten the cooler with the idea of putting it in my garage so I wouldn't have to walk all the way to my kitchen (it is only 20 feet away but I am LAZY). Upon reading the manual for the cooler I saw it only consumed 44 watts. A quick check of the Burgman manual revealed a 120 watt maximum for the power source so I put it in the trunk, plugged it in and it started (quietly)humming away. So I guess now I have the "Coolest" Burgman around!!! :D

Now if someone could make a refrigerated helmet for those 100+ degree days!

Some teams in the US' National Football League have switched their gear over to a water cooled system. They shoulder and torso protectors have tubes routed throughout. When the players come off the field, the assistants hook each player up to a pump and ice chest using quick disconnects.

Sooooo, time to merge that cooler in the trunk to a web of tubing in the helmet... voila.. one frozen head. And, a cool head is always best on the roadways, right? :))

Sounds great but just one word of caution. If you leave them plugged into your bike without the engine running you may run your battery down real quick. I use to pull a tent trailer with a 12V fridge - stopped for lunch - one hour later the car engine barely started. Same with those CoolTron fridges - they can run your car battery down in about 3 hours.

Cool, now you can sell cold beers to your biker friends. :D
Now, anyone knows where I can find a small microwave to
fit in the trunk of my Burgman 400? :oops:

The 12 volt microwave ovens consume way more(~750 watts) than the 120 watt maximum on the Burgman but here is a site that has just about every appliance you can imagine in 12 volts

Now what should I get next? Coffee maker of frying pan? Hmmmmmm....

Speaking of Wal-Mart:


One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Joe says to Mike behind him,
"My elbow hurts like hell. I guess I better see a doctor."
"Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Mike
replies. "There's a diagnostic computer down at Wal-Mart.
Just give it a urine sample and the computer will tell
you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds
and costs ten dollars...a lot cheaper than a doctor."
So Joe deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to
Wal-Mart. He deposits ten dollars, and the computer lights up and
asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits.
Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout: "You have
tennis elbow.

Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will
improve in two weeks."
Thank you for shopping @ Wal-Mart.

That evening while thinking how amazing this new technology
was, Joe began wondering if the computer could be fooled.
He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine
samples from his wife and daughter, and a sperm sample for good
measure.

Joe hurries back to Wal-Mart, eager to check the results.
He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits
the results.
The computer prints the following:
1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. (Aisle 9)
2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. (Aisle 7)
3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab.
4. Your wife is pregnant, Twins. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer.
5. If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better.

Thank you for shopping @ Wal-Mart
