Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Blew off my chore list this morning for a test-em-out-N-sight-em-in trip. Spent about 3 hours at the range. The 100 yard bay was occupied but the one next to it was about 80. The Creedmoor is awesome! Almost no recoil and immediately started stacking divots on the plate. I think with some practice, ...

Check their calendar because they do weird hours and days as the season winds down.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Did a 120 mile test and recreation ride today. I wanted to double check the pushrod tube leak and see how it travels with all the touring gear on it. Good news is the tube leak appears to be fixed. Bad news is that the windshield lets me hear a lot more noises. There's a rattle up front I need to so...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I love that tractor sprinkler but almost never use it any more. Thanks anyway. Yard at the new house has a sprinkler system and the old yard is just starting to yellow this week. I'll let it go dormant to save work this year. Look at how green it was in my before photos from Tuesday vs how yellow it...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Over this past week I chipped away at some landscaping work at the bottom of the hill. This was working toward the goal of setting it up for occasional RV usage. The weeds were completely out of control and some were taller than me. Also, you might make out the railroad ties that were used to terrac...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Oil temp in the tank. It's basically just a meat thermometer built in to the fill cap. There's really not much you can do about it on an air cooled engine anyway. I'm just curious how much it fluctuates.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I spent about 10 hours yesterday doing landscaping work at the old homesite and I guess the sun really taxed me harder than I thought. I was basically useless today. Spent a couple hours in the office prepping for an upcoming assignment then waited for some deliveries. I've been prepping the Chief f...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

My bike has had an oil seep from the rear upper pushrod tube seal since I bought it. I bought an O-ring set weeks ago and finally got around to it this morning. I did some reading/YouTubing about it and it looked really straightforward. Collapse the tubes, shorten the adjustable pushrods, remove pus...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

My little podunk town has their celebration and fireworks on the 3rd and we had some people over to watch the festivities. On the 4th I had a huge list of chores that I managed to avoid. The trailer wasn't even on my list but I decided that it would be my priority for the day...and it ended up eatin...

I like it.

I need a pair of wheels like that so I can build a little trailer for my sprayer. Would they be sturdy enough to haul 100-150 pounds?

This ebay seller in Thailand is using a photo of my primed 520 ute to sell his bumperettes.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/STAINLESS-STEE ... 2773365783
And the 521 has no rear bumper. That's advertising genius.
