I've got a new destination for ya:

I've got some pics and video like that. Guess I need to post them. I haven't done anything with the video yet though. It's still un-edited...

I was on a trail like that by myself and came up on a tree that was down across the trail. I was on a downhill slope and there wasn't any way to get around the tree and I couldn't turn around or push the bike backwards up the hill the way I came. So I laid the bike down and took the handlebars off and slid it underneath the tree. :(



I of course have video of the whole thing but basically I dug out under the tree as much as I could and broke off some limbs and then slid the bike underneath in the triangular space that it created...

The only thing balanced about my tires is the huge stack of them that is about to fall over in my garage. The Leaning Tower of Tourances. Guess I should stop procrastinating about taking them to be recycled.

Recycled? What? You don't have brush piles to burn?

I'm headed to CCM tomorrow morning to look at orange bikes and then head over to Pike SF to play around. Anyone want to join me? Supposed to be hot but the last time I was at Pike it wasn't that bad because you can go pretty fast on the trails.

Too close to the highway, the black smoke would probably get me in trouble.

At least I don't cut them up with a sawzall and put them in the trash like EJ

Correction. It is a DeWALT branded Reciprocating Saw that is used on said items.

Plus, I am out of the Coarse Tooth Blades right now. So, my stack of Tourance's is getting tall.

Make sure it's a metal cutting blade not a wood blade, especially if it's steel belted radial tire.

I was unaware that the Leaning Tower of Tourances had a twin monument in Gahanna.

How's the tractor? Or is that what's keeping the tire stack from falling over?

Wood blades work good too. I use old junk wood blades to cut 26ga barn siding when we are putting up pole barns.

I'd be afraid of them catching on the cords in a tire but if it works... learn something new.
