Went up there and hiked the 3.7 mile loop with a friend on Wednesday. They are going to permanently close the trail to the public on May 1st. Too many idiots getting themselves injured or killed.
It’s 11am. Just after a rainstorm lasting all night. I stripped the paint and rust off the last portion of the bed floor of my truck and sprayed some rustoleum bedliner on it. I had done the rest of the bed floor last week. Without the proper tools. And I rushed the job by not scuffing up or removing enough of the…
Images and description for posterity:
Taken from a multi story I parked on for Jury Duty last week. I imagine they’re kept in a cage to prevent vandalism/theft during long term parking.
Didn’t find the bench seat I originally set out for, but I also found two more hub caps so I have four now. Unfortunately I have three rears and one front so someone who’s really paying attention will notice one front cap sticking out more than the other.
Because tomorrow is promised to no one.
Spotted this on the road today. The more I looked at it the more bizarre it seemed.
Just watched the latest in the Michael Bay Robotic Explosions franchise.
How common is this kind of setup?
Last week, a headlight went out on the S70. I went to check the bulb and discovered that the reflector inside the lamp assembly was loose and pivoting. Probably damaged from the deer strike in December.
Took advantage of the rain last night that washed away all the road salt, and used the opportunity to fiddle with the throttle stop position on the truck, in the hopes of fixing the TPS/idling/surging/transmission hunting issues. Good news, it worked! Perfectly smooth driving in both stop/go city and 70mph highway.…
Found an unmarked trail about a mile from my house and decided to see where it went. After a couple hundred yards of rocky single track through a moderately wooded area, it opened up to a power line access trail.
Dunlop D606s, allegedly the gold standard for dual sport with heavy emphasis on off-road traction. We’ll see how they perform compared to the 11 year old original Bridgestones that these are replacing.
A fully rigid, 1200cc, 45 horsepower monster of a motorcycle from 1930, that has been repaired mechanically but otherwise unrestored. Love it.
Found this DOTS (S for sidewalk in this case), never even heard of a Suzuki FA50 before. It was very tiny, smaller than an adult bicycle, and looked like a lot of fun. The wheels are 14" for size reference.
When you can have this behemoth instead? Basically a naked GL1500 Gold Wing.
It was pretty entertaining, though the constant ragging on the worthlessness of the Chevy was a bit droll (a 1.0l Fiat Panda 4x4 beating a 454 Silverado in a roll race handily stretches suspension of disbelief to me).
..err... three actually.
‘96 F-350 crew cab dually with 460 big block, for $1k? Probably worth that in scrap metal.
Just rode this little guy home, it was really hard to find a notary open on New Years Day. 2008 Yamaha WR250R. 40 miles on a 55mph highway, and it doesn’t like to go much over 65 with the aftermarket shallow cog that’s on it.
