  1. 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 intenti
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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 som
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Sportsmans guide. It was $30 less than atlantic with shipping. Local FFL was only $30.
  10. 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.
  11. There's quite a few aftermarket stocks available. I just ordered a Magpul Zhukov stock, it's adjustable and the price is right.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 2005. I've never ridden one but everybody that has/had one seems to love it.
