    Us Assault Weapon Ban **read First**

    People that want to kill are going to kill, for some reason here they're picking guns to do it. We have a problem with society and violence in general and people are fixating on the tool used to do it. I could be wrong, but if you take what is perceived as the easiest tool out of the equation they'll move on to the second easiest. So, we ban rifles and people start using pistols instead. Ban those and then we're back to bombs and cars. Of course we go back to laws, which only the law-abiding actually go by so at that point the only people with guns will be the ones that have zero intentions of obeying any laws. I'd rather use a car if I wanted to take out a crowd just out of ease and laziness. If I were to pick a gun I surely wouldn't use any sort of rifle. Lugging a rifle around with a bunch of loaded magazines is a pain in the ass and way too obvious, probably even moreso for these 140lb kids doing this stuff. Not being a conspiracy guy here...but I've always wondered how these guys that are 5'6" and all of a 140# are able to just waltz right into a school with a loaded rifle and a handful of loaded magazines and seemingly go unnoticed until they start.

    Finally sold the 919 on Monday. I put all of 400 or so miles on it last year and really wasn't into it. Picked up a new Polaris 570 touring in January, I've only ridden it once and put all of 3 hours on it but I really like it. The snow is finally melting up north so I might be able to get up there soon and ride it on proper trails. My one son just turned 12 yesterday so he's finally legal to trail ride, I rebuilt his Arctic Cat 90 last summer, changed the clutches and went smaller on the rear sprocket just for that. My nephew can ride my 400 when we go.

    Finished up my kid's 90cc Arctic cat last night. He was bitching that it wasn't running right and I figured out why after I checked the compression and found it only had 75psi. It was never exactly quick to begin with as the clutch setup and compression is kinda shitty out of the box. He has the skill for more power but not the size for a bigger machine. New oversize (3mm) piston, rings, etc. It's now bored out to 98cc. Had the head milled down .045, changed the roller weights and springs in the trans to increase the stall speed. It's now at 115psi and you can actually wheelie it now. Runs awesome, but I have an extra head that I'm going to shave down .06 and see what happens. You can change the entire top end on one of these in under an hour, so it isn't hard to play with. He was happy after riding it today, I asked him if he wanted more out of it and he said it's good as it is.

    I picked this up earlier this summer for $200. 1994 Elite 50. All lenses broken, exhaust pipe had a hole in it and was rusty, two flat rotted tires, busted up plastics, wouldn't run right, no rear brakes, rusty wheels, broken airbox and a bunch of other busted shit on it. Some guy bought it for his young kids to ride and they trashed it. Painted the wheels, polished the plastics, replaced all the lenses, new tubes/tires, welded and painted the exhaust, replaced the brakes, new battery, cleaned the carb and replaced more nickel and dime stuff on it. Did some really crafty shit with some zip-ties since plastics for these are hard to come by, looks wonderful from a few feet away. Does an amazing 30mph. I could make it go faster but it's a moped and it does what it does.

    2020 Presidential Campaign

    If they keep what they currently have then it's done. Those that have it aren't giving it up, so that's about it. Progressive values aren't going to win it for them, neither is the current state of the party with the daily Anti-Trump messages and zero clear message/path. The workers in the manufacturing states care about neither of those things, they care about their livelihoods. Get away from the east and west coast and lots of people aren't complaining. As of today I'd place a $10k bet on a Republican win for 2020 if the Democratic party continues on the exact same path it's on today. It doesn't matter who it is that runs on the D ticket either, the damage isn't just done, it continues to be done. That party continues to fall apart. Get rid of the old, when the new comes in they need to set a clear agenda that's radically different than what's going on now. The question is...how do you get those people to step down and pass the torch on? I'm guessing they won't.

    I rode it today for about 40 miles....within 5 miles saw a real bad car/bike accident. Shit happens too much, didn't spook me but I hate seeing that. It's quick and it's fun but it's not really for me and is no fault of the bike itself. The wind had my ass kicked by the end of the ride. I just can't see riding it for more than 40-60 miles at a time, my problem with bikes like this is that I like to constantly get into the throttle and have a hard time just cruising. So, to sum it up I'm old and still like to do stupid stuff and shouldn't be. But, it does ride real nice and probably isn't hard on the body if I'd keep the speed down. What I do like....you can get on it and it responds or you can take it easy and it still moves. It's just hard for me to keep it at 65 and stay there. I'm still going to keep it for awhile, insurance is cheap and the plate was next to nothing. I did buy a 94 Honda Elite S for $200 the other night. Not perfect and it has a flat tire, I just couldn't pass it up at that price. If my nephew keeps his shit together I'll give it to him for his 15th birthday.

    I'd rather have the 900 over any 600-650 but they're all good bikes with that ideal riding position...I hate leaning forward. I thought about a V-strom last year before I bought my Yamaha but wanted something with a low seat height for the kids. The problem with the Yamaha is I ride it like I would anything else, they tend not to pull over bikes in Michigan so I'm balls out on it all the time.

    I rode it for a few minutes and that was it, I need to get to SOS and plate it first. It's quick, but you feel the wind.

    Sportsmans guide. It was $30 less than atlantic with shipping. Local FFL was only $30.

    It's factory. I need to get it plated this week and ride it legally. The Wrangler...the only time I drive it is to go to the sand dunes or up north to go off-roading. It's alright, reliable and cheap to maintain but it's a steel box. She drives it all the time and she loves it so I guess that's good for her, probably reminds her of when she was a cheerleader or some shit like that.

    There's quite a few aftermarket stocks available. I just ordered a Magpul Zhukov stock, it's adjustable and the price is right.

    This showed up today. Guy texted me last night and came by today. I don't really need this but the crf wasn't fitting in anywhere.

    WASR-10. Cleaned it up real good the other night, if I have time I'll go to the range tomorrow. Not insanely expensive by any means, but seems overpriced once you take it apart and see how simple it is. The stock feels really short, like they made it exclusively for somebody with short arms.

    All of our ORV trails in Michigan are sand and the off-road parks are sand and pea gravel. The actual single-track MC trails up north aren't all sand but aren't family friendly at all. Aside from that they're 8 and 11, my 11 year old rides good but my 8 year old needs more time. Kid's bikes are terrible in sand and we go back to the same situation we were in when I was on a bike....I can't go slow in the sand with them. We have thousands of miles of trails but they're mostly sand. I'm just at that point in life where I've realized what I shouldn't be doing...and that's getting on yet another dirt bike. I'm comfy on my 400ex and the kids are comfy on their quads. 919 and zrx are about the same mostly. I enjoy riding my V-star but sometimes want something that hauls ass more so it would fill a void.

    2005. I've never ridden one but everybody that has/had one seems to love it.
