    Sweet! I wish my son was ready for a 65! We sat on one yesterday and its too big, maybe within the next year or two. I figured a 65 with a Rekluse clutch would be an awesome kid bike! Let me know if you get it, we can meet up out at our track and ride, it's nice and open out there.

    We always had big Owls on our farm, used to sleep windows open cause no air and I would listen to them hoot. Many a cat vanished from that farm, I figure the Owls got a few.

    1) How hard it is to get an owl to take up residency?
    2) Do owls have a taste for geese?

    Less than $25k?

    I was an advocate of doing a hunt and eat or hunt and donate. :wink: I'm not inclined to hunt them but I have no problems controlling a population this way.

    I was in Monroe Michigan one year during the tame Canada goose hunt. There were blinds near every body of water in the city. I saw dead geese dropping onto the Interstate!:lol3

    The local gubmint said it did the citizens more good than anything else but they weren't about to stop it.:D

    Wait a second! Forget my earlier post about how cool the 65's are! I have a near mint KTM 50SX that Cassie needs! It runs great, only ridden to the mailbox and back by a little old lady!:D

    Speaking of cars. At the last breakfast I said I was going to buy a Prius. I drove this nice used one. I ended up driving some other cars and then decided to buy it, it was leaving as we headed back to the used store. Been on the lot 90 days and sold out from under me. No biggee they had another one loaded but not as clean, but the doctor and old lady just dinged it a bit, but they bought it new, serviced, and traded it back in at the auto park. We were $500 apart on the car and I walked. I ended up deciding not to buy one. I am going to just drive the Outback till at least 150k like the last 2 I owned.

    Try as I might I have not bought a car from a dealer, other than 2 from my brother when he still was in the business, since I was in the car business at the age of 25. Once you been on that side of the fence you just can't pay what they want. I always end up with private party cars at way cheaper prices. I may buy brand new next time though. I did find a Honda Fit that Justin had at Subaru and the money was right on it. I couldn't trade my in though, you never win with a dealer if you trade one in. Never. I decided the fit was too noisy for my long commute. Wind noise mostly and seats not plush enough. If I didn't commute a million miles I loved the car. Very versatile use of space and good mileage combined with fun to drive.

    I agree it's tough to buy a new car Elvis, but there are some screaming deals out there right now! I've been browsing Chevy 1/2 ton Silverados and they are $10k to $12 off sticker, thats a smokin deal! If I werent worried that 1/2 ton wouldnt pull my tractor and camper I'd be all over one for the smoother ride and better fuel mileage than my truck.


    Good on you for walking away from the deal you werent happy with, I've learned to step back and think about it as I'll usually change my mind!

    You should wait for the half ton diesels to arrive Ted. Ford and Chevy should have them out in the next year or two, I bet they will tow your stuff and you could actually get double digit mileage. Those heavy duty trucks do ride like covered wagons when unloaded don't they.
