How clear are we talking here? Some lawn sterilizing agent would keep the area vegetation free for years. Some gas or diesel would help keep it in check too unless it's really robust. Fire can work too unless it's an area you can't burn in. Or just get goats.

Being he lives in Troy, I doubt he wants to salt the earth but probably has a patch he just wants gone along a fence or the side of the house where getting a lawn to grow is difficult.

No, I was talking about my Dad's farm over in Indiana. The fence rows are encroaching in on the farm fields with this stuff and it's everywhere it seems. :(

I was thinking a tractor with a frontend loader might be able to bull doze it right out of the ground but some of it is 4~5" diameter. :(

Autum/Russian Olive out of control at my place. It basically takes over any open areas that are not mowed. Lots of fruit in the fall so the birds spread (shit) the seeds like crazy.

I'll rent you some goats to take care of that....and they sterilize the seeds when they digest them....

Go to tractor supply and buy some round up brush killer that is the concentrate mix it strong and spray really good. Then next winter go through with a chainsaw and cut all the bigger stuff out. You have to be careful with the loader because that stuff will wrap itself around that fence and when you pull on it it will tear your fence out

If it's out in the country, we used to use diesel in a pump sprayer and burn it off. The other option would be to get a weed burner, that's the best way to make sure the seeds can't propagate.

I know, I know, pretty much Spam, but since there are so many WR250R riders on here I thought I would post it up.

Yamaha and Klim worked on a line of clothes that were really nice. They are pretty much all gone, but the guys at Iron Pony did come up with a buyout on a Yamaha/Klim Gore-Tex shell.

These were $220, but IP has them for $90.

Really cool, just a lightweight Gore-Tex shell that folds into its own pocket.

It is meant to go in your saddlebag or pack and pull out to throw over top of your jacket when it gets really wet.

Even has the cool Gore/YKK zippers......

A serious pieces of equipment for less than half price.

Sizing is pretty accurate, perhaps a little generous. I would get one size larger than normal to wear over a chest protector or jacket.

I am in need of a set of after market pipes for a 1975 Suzuki GT550 triple. If anyone knows where I could get some in the USA.

These in store items only? I've been looking for a jacket like this?

Well damn, if you had one less cylinder I have a set that would work.
