That is a nice gun Guy, I used to own one of those and a .458 Weatherby. My ex was a non gun lover, hence they are both gone............so is she now. Both of those guns would drop anything you point them at, would also kill your shoulder as well.

When Green Top had there open house Sue and I went there for the sole purpose of buying new hand guns, the sale prices were great and we both got M&P's with safeties (I found it strange that they sell guns without safeties now.)

I asked the salesmen to show Sue what a .458 round looked like compared to the 9 mm I was buying. That sucker was huge and a box of 20 was $184.00 on sale compared to a box of 50 9 mm for target shooting for $12.00.

sure you don't mean .460wby mag?
http://www.weatherby.com/product/amm...rtridges/40337

I believe it did use a .458 diameter slug tho..

I had a .458 win mag, and it was tame compared to the weatherby... well, somewhat....they both make you flinch after the first BOOM..

and even while I manufactured my own ammo, it still co$t big buck$ to $hoot......

Ditto that Greg. Very nice day, indeed.

And Mickey - thank you for the Brrr Ride reminder. Time has been such a blur and didn't realize it was NEXT weekend. Missing it would have really been embarrassing.

Oyster festival

Great day at the festival today. Guy, thanks for the photos. Between the fried oysters, the broiled oysters, the crab soup, the oyster stew and the corn dog ..... I was one happy camper.

The 50+ herd of motorcycles from the rest area to the festival actually went off without a hitch. Once the group got rolling everyone stayed together and arrived at the same time. I was very surprised. Thanks Rusty.

12GS skid plate

The Tourtech skid plate arrived this afternoon for the 12GS so off to the garage I went.

To my surprise .... when I looked under the bike I noticed the original skid plate had been dented and smashed from the last ride at BWDR. The skid plate was actually touching the bottom of the engine. When I got it off I could not believe my eyes. Not only was the skid plate bent but the front mounting bracket was also bent.

Here are some of the photos... In the last photo you can see where I was hitting the cross over as well as the side of the exhaust.

Lesson learned here ..... get a good skid plate if your going to ride off road.

No idea what you are talking about . Nothing ever gets damaged at the BWDR..... Except a liver or two.


Nice skid plate. That one came stock on the 30th model. I didn't use Lottie on mine just put stickers over the flush mount bolts.. It is great now that you can "justify"the purchase due to damage

Also played with a number of my other rifles, most of which are "smaller" calibers. Got me to thinking that I need to get my BIG gun (Marlin 1895M in Marlin 450) out there and see how it does. Comparatively speaking, me thinks all the rest were just toys.





Will be back out there Tuesday, weather permitting. I'm sure my shoulder is looking forward to this.

I have a 45-70. What a beast. Those lever evolution rounds are the bomb digity! Are you running a flat conventional round first or did you get the free widget from Marlin?

Blooch, I got the gun from a friend in IN for a song...... and I can't sing. Bought it used (+ the ammo) and he only put 6-7 rounds through it, so no "widget."

Now you have my curiosity up: explain the purpose of the widget.

That's really nice looking Chuck. It would really be a shame to go beat the crap out of it bouncing off the rocks again. You already know my perspective on riding big (heavy) bikes in the really rough stuff. That's what dirt bikes are for. I would not intentionally beat the crap out of that nice new skid plate with say a 5 pound sledge hammer and that would probably would be more gentle than riding it through the rough stuff and bouncing 650+ pounds of bike plus rider off the rocks. I'm sticking to forrestry and gravel roads.

Here’s my nice new AltRider package on my bike. I don’t intend to intentionally take a chance of damaging it. It’s just there for protection during one of those “Oh shit ” moments.
