      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Recommended Posts

This is to some of you guys that have been rideing for awhile does a strong wind like this past weekend bother you while rideing (doing freeway speeds) I was rideing this last weekend and some of the gusts of wind almost knocked me over. I have only been rideing for 3 years now it one of the few things that really bother me while rideing.

I hate the wind while riding. We have put many miles on trips where the wind was definately not in our favor. Accros the plains has got to be the worst that I have ever experienced. I remember following my dad and it looked as though he was riding at a 20 degree angle. He was leaning right into the wind. After we stopped I told him that he looked a little awkward riding. He informed me that I looked the same way in his rear views. Oh yea wind definately bothers me. Whether it be mother nature, or a passing semi.

To me it is not the wind blowing against me that is bothersome, it is the wind trying to lift the helmet off of my head!!! I mean if I had the choice i would much rather ride with little or no wind!!! Infact I still have a kinkl in my neck from my 560 mile ride last saturday!!!

Crosswinds are much worse than riding in the rain! The bigger the bike the easier it is but they are still tiring. Always seem to be a problem in the Midwest States.

You get used to it, to a point. Slow down a little and keep your feet off the highway pegs and you'll be alright. If you’re in really gusty winds keep your legs tight on the bike and try not to have the death grip on the bars. You don't want to have your upper body too tense because you end up making more jerky motions to compensate for the gusts. I really hated the wind when I first started riding. It always seemed to be a white knuckle ride. I learned to relax a little more and things went a lot smoother. We can have it pretty bad in Minnesota at times but I swear every time I ride through South Dakota on I-90 I'm driving at a 45 degree angle.

I was thinking of starting a similar post. Cross winds are the one thing I don't like when riding. I'd much rather ride in the rain than the wind. Like it was mentioned, sometimes it feels like the wind wants to knock you over. It feels more like it wants to push the bike out from underneath you more than push you off the bike. Has anyone ever, or know anyone who has ever been put down by the wind? That's my fear, but maybe it's just a fear and not really something that would happen.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
