Ya, the next one he's looking at has the smaller displacement twin turbo with nearly 70K miles. I'm steering him in the direct opposite direction of that one! One turbo is bad enough, but two? Especially when they get old and cranky.

Thanks guys. Somebody bought the R title truck before he finished his research, but he's still looking. The power train advice was really good, so muchachos garcias Meister.

It had to be an alloy of some sort- didn't rust. And the contact surface was radiused to match the curvature of the tire. Very trick.

Yes, carfax will have the history on this specific vehicle. My son is getting that from the dealer. As stated, I'm interested in what people have experienced about this platform in general. Gworm- thanks for sharing your experience. H

Fun thread. I have a basket case Sears that uses a 4hp B&S. It was mine from new, but needs a rebuild. Anybody know where I can source one of those friction brake shoes that rubbed up against the rear tire to stop? High tech! H

Hey gang- I know we have almost as many experts here, (Newmann), as we do those who think they are, so I'll give this a shot. My son is looking at buying a used truck, and he stumbled across a 2016 F150XLT with the 5.0 v8 and 6 speed auto- about 45K ... more »

I've used them before- a year or so ago, with no issues. Many companies are having staffing issues and therefore fulfillment issues due to the restrictions, and it affects supply chains too. But they do have "banditt" in their name, so there's that.... ... more »

I want a picture of that dude photoshopped onto that Ribi-linked works CR. Which should be photoshopped onto an Aprilia truss frame. Ya, that's it.

Post-Vintage cross country racing a '79 Yamaha IT175. Fell on a muddy downhill, and took a couple minutes to get myself righted and back on course. After the crash, the bike ran terribly, could barely keep it running at low rpms. At first I figured it ... more »

The memes are great. I agree with Moto T's assessment of the cicada killers- those things are ridiculous. Sumdood- those Oz monkeys are the stuff of my childhood nightmares. Them and the Abominable Snowbeast from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.

I like the designs. I always thought, though, that the thinner fabrics represented just a cheaper shirt. Thanks for the education. I'm surprised some of Vital's finest haven't lit you up for posting something for sale, called you a spammer, and told ... more »

At a pre-SX dealer autograph signing, I saw him run out of autograph stock right before the end of the session, and there was an obviously disappointed kid in the line. Trey took his team-issue hat off, signed it and gave it to the kid. Class move. H ... more »

Added reply in a thread Gravity Fed Simpson Pressure Washer 4/17/2020 8:28 AM

20 psi from a gravity system? Pressure is 0.433 psi/ft., so that would require that the top of the water be 20/.433 or 46 ft. high. Makes no sense.

Well, they haven't built a bike since March 19th. Before that they were only building a handful of Live Wires each day. It'll be interesting to see what this does to them.

Those are surprisingly entertaining!

Added reply in a thread Why do you ride? 3/19/2020 11:26 AM

Therapy. The exertion, thrill, occasional scare and required focus are cathartic. It's like a mini vacation that's invigorating for body and reset for mind and soul.

Takes me back to folks questioning why Hannie was out on the track with the regulars when he was not racing. I get RC designed the track and is the GOAT, but the question is the same.
