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.
