Been having some fun over the last couples days..

First, been thinking of toying with Tubliss and I'm running MX-71s lately front and rear, so I bought that spare front wheel on KSL thats been listed for eons, with tubliss and a new tire and basically got a free wheel out of the deal.. Only thing was the guy who sold it to me [hehem, moron] put a whole bottle of slime into the wheel. When I picked it up I swear it weighed,.. 30lbs?? Huge, disgusting mess. Slime sucks!




Second, these are pretty badass gauges designed for off roaders / low tire pressures, and a big fat gauge. Cruiser Outfit on this board (www.cruiseroutfitters.com) sells them out of his place down in Sandy.. A little expensive ($29) but I think worth it versus everyone dicking around with their inaccurate gauges in my opinion...





Finally, engine's pulled and decided to break down the '10 450 XC-W and clean it up a little while I have it apart.. In deep!



Frame only remarkably weighs about 20lbs once totally stripped...

There are a couple of places that have little ones and 3 and 4 wheelers for rent but only around town and the dunes.I do not know of a big bike rental place in SF.

Tim usually keeps his bikes on this side of the border but he is always open to offers.

If anyone is looking for a camp trailer I'm selling my 20 footer. Also selling my enclosed and ATV trailer. Toy hauler took the place of them all.

Snow bike

Hey guys, Did some snowmobiling this weekend up in the uintas and had a blast!! It got my thinking about snow bikes. I remember when the 2moto kit came out and I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen.

I was wondering if any of you have experience with any of the snow bike conversions?? Are they really hard to ride? do you shift while you ride? I see mainly 4 strokes, is there any negatives to using a 2 stroke? Is it really hard on the bike mechanically? And last but not least.... Does anyone have a snow bike conversion they would let me test out.. haha, no body? no takers? hahaha. I m pretty responsible..

Any ways I appreciate any and all input!

A pic from today, hitting the uintas at sunrise!
