Re: Dnepr difference MT11 & MT16

Regular gas. Don't expect to sustain over 55 mph or you will quickly become an expert inside and out. This.

Re: Mosquito trap

I live about 1/2 mile from the largest little brown bat colony in the state, the local paper quoted a bat expert as saying that there are about 6500 bats in that old railroad trestle. A bat can eat over a thousand mosquitos a night. We don't have a mosquito problem here. If I toss a small pebble int...

Re: bike carrier on sidecar

I put a Class 1 trailer hitch adaptor on my Dnepr trailer hitch, 1 1/4" X 1 1/4". Then, I just slide a Harbor Freight two bike carrier into it. The bikes hang across the back of the tug and sidecar and stick out a little on both sides. I don't have any pictures right now as all my stuff is inside of...

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

When I was a kid, I worked at a service station, remember those? we used to put split rims under the hoist when we inflated them. They weren't going anywhere when they were pressed to the floor under the lift.

Re: Osteoarthritisis pain?

CBD ointment from your local head shop. CBD is the component of cannabis that doesn't get you high.
Just rub it on the affected area.

I have one of those too! I bought it at Ramco soon after buying my rig. I've been meaning to paint it white to match my bike.

We had a weld fail on a 1200 lb feedwater line. The chief engineer was reluctant to continue the voyage with only one feed pump. Though they coul...
