Targeted Toaster Testing

HL88 Manufactory is busy this season with its annual targeted toaster testing. Testing toasters takes talent, something HL88 has in modest abundance. Each rider on Team Vitesse is furnished with a tested toaster for personal use at each stop on the 2015 Tour. Properly browned and tasty toast techniques take time to tame. Uncompromising quality conquers!


Pre-Op Equipment Requirements

As the date approaches for btb's total knee replacement, an equipment list has been released by the HL88 surgery suite.  This represents tools that the patient must bring to the OR. This requirement keeps the costs of surgery down allowing higher salaries to be paid to the riders of Team Vitesse, the professional cycling team sponsored by HL88 Manufactory. clicking on the images increases their size!
