Great you caught that on video.
I know right were you were, In fact, I know that very hole that swallowed you up. I wonder how many victims that thing has claimed?

Off topic,,but do any of you guys know where I can get one of these locally? I want to go from a battery tender lead to a male cigarette lighter adapter.... I've got a hot all the time port on my dash and this will make it a snap to put the tender on it. Would like to buy local and pick up today if possible.

Battery Tender to a cigarette lighter port adapter

I've seen them at the BMW dealer on 90th - but it was over a year ago.

Thanks for the suggestion - I never would have thought of them. Unfortunately no stock.

Got one today in the mail from amazon.



I am sure it's a heck of a lot cheaper than the dealer.

Thanks man. I'm probably going to end up going the amazon route. I was hoping to source it locally and have it today, but I'm striking out. It really disappoints on the instant gratification...

Have you called Wright's? They carry a fair amount of Battery Tender stuff. 801-266-2050.

Also the Slime inflators at Walmart have a plug like that to run off of.

Thanks guys!
I finally fingered it out... Lol...Life's complex questions and all that.... The good 'ol Shack had a selection of Enercell adapters... Took all of five minutes to snip off the alligator clips from the Battery Tender stuff, and pop it together. It even keeps the inline fuse and makes it so you can't mess up the polarity... plus I went to the one over in a Valley Fair mall to make it "exotic"...

The Shack saves the day

Gerbil wasn't enough? Electric butt plugs??? Let us know how the birthday gift was received.
I mean how she took it. No, did she like it? You can be such a pain in the ass sometimes.

If you need a beta tester I believe Walrus would pay you to try it.

On second thought he would probably need the 110 volt model when it comes out.

Probly you already though of it, but ... Be sure to check all your bike's body cavities ... standing water will corrupt.

Like Orville Redenbacher used to say; "do one thing, and do it better than anyone else"........

And it's perfectly normal to have a two foot piece of rope tied to your pet gerbil.....

A video from our Enduro last weekend. This is where I ride regularly. When it gets too cold for riding in Utardia, consider a stop in Texas...only 15 hours away

Near real time sat imagery

This site has near real time satellite imagery to help plan your rides during the big thaw. There's a time slider that allows you to go back a day or however long till you get a shot without clouds.
