Actually, I wouldn't do any of those things, not even change the oil, but that's what I think a responsible owner should do. I'm just a lazy procrastinator.
I have one Battery Tender and it rotated weekly between three bikes. In addition to that and the Sta-Bil, I had the wife start them up monthly to keep fresh gas moving through the system and she moved them around the garage so that they weren't sitting on the same part of the tire the whole time.

You are fine then. She sounds like a great gal btw! Kick the tires then light the fires!

Here's the hill mgorman and meefzah rode up. It is much steeper than it looks in the pic. No way I was even going to attempt it. Appreciated their help making sure I got back up stone quarry.






It's not that bad if you can stay on a good line. I climbed it on my KLR 250 with mostly bald 50/50 tires.

Mgorman could do it staying in the ruts with his eyes closed and left hand behind his back.

I was in the ruts, so It was that bad for me, luckily it was dry. The problem is that in those ruts are a bunch of loose stone that offer pretty much no traction

I would have had to have Obama do a "Jedi Mind-Meld" in order to make it...

I'm looking for a little bike for my nephew, he's 10 and about 4 and a half feet tall.

My father in law bought him an electric Razor pile o shit for christmas and he has already outgrown it.

Thinking something in the 65 or 80 flavor, going to be playing on the farm trails I have and maybe work our way up to easy stuff at Clearfork and Perry.

Dox, you're like a super nerd, any thoughts on this?
Does the site look exactly the same on your phone as it does a computer? It should detect that you're using a smartphone and serve you a much more mobile friendly version of the site.

I haven't used the smugmug app for Android yet, so would have to play with it a little to develop a fast workflow for posting tags.
