Anyone have a motorcycle carrier they want to sell or recommendations on getting one? I was going to pick up a harbor freight cheapie. They are aluminum which is nice. Not sure if they're any good...

Did you check out the lights at Advmonster.com? I bought several & they are very impressive. Light weight, low power, many lumens...

There is an adv discount too...

Pissed Oh Snap!

OH SNAP!!! (gear box that is... on my rototiller)

A tiller is an important piece of equipment this time of year for us wanna-be micro farmers, and it really sucks that mine just sh!t the bed.


A CHALLENGE!

---one of you hardcore metal guru's fab up a way that i can swap out the rear wheel of my XR650R w/ custom tiller tines, and i can (almost) guarantee a front page photo, and helmet cam vid of me wheelie-ing over backwards! My tiller was 6 Horsey's... the XR is what?!! I'd save so much time tilling i could ride in the spring!

Who's going to step up to the plate and become famous?

I talked to a guy that had one of those on a rally setup. He said it was brighter then the 4 inch hid he had mounted below it.
