    Next time you get gas make sure you clean off your headlights and taillights. Oh and you might want to clean the windows too.

    Sooo, this should move some air.

    IMG_20180107_163645.jpg

    All I wanted was a little compressor to run some tools but that little POS wouldn't run in my 0* shop. This one doesn't have any issues though.

    Now I just have to plumb the rest of the shop for it, add an air dryer, buy a sand blaster, a paint gun, air chisel, needle scaler, plasma cutter...

    It's no wonder I can't buy a damn bike !

    I don't understand people who ride like that and I see it with the people I ride with as well. They take off 100mph down a trail they've never been on before. To me, that's the quickest way to do nothing other than get hurt.

    I wondered what the costs were to run Dakar. I didn't realize that some of these guys are on rented bikes specifically built for the rally. Bike rental is $20k for the race. Race support and maintenance for the week is another $15k. Fuel was like another $5k and entry fees for the race itself are $20k !!

    That's $60k and you haven't even gotten off the couch yet. Airfare, hotels, food, race team support etc. etc. They're saying $100k minimum just to race a bike at Dakar for 2 weeks and you're still using a damn roll chart for directions !

    Oh and for those of you who have a worn out tire laying around. I might try this if it gets cold again.

    Wonder how those long studs would do in the rocks if there's not enough snow cover?

    yea- its seems like way to much work - last year 3-4 guys in the club all studded their tires using what was supposed to be the best way of doing it. BY 1/2 way through the next ride- I would say 75% of the screws were gone when we stopped- the rocks just pulled/ knocked them right out If I lived in Minnesota or if we had "real" winters I would invest in some good stud tires- Since I moved back I have yet to experience a winter here that justified studded tires $$$- By this Friday it will be 50 here again.

    Sounds exactly like my wife. 83 in the living room and she's comfy in a sweatshirt. I'm in shorts t-shirt and no shoes..can't keep up the 80+ in the living room when it's this cold though.

    Wonder??? Scratch up the rocks and put you on your butt I thing...

    I got a brand new (10yr and getting stiff) and they got about 1hr of use on them. In frozen sandy loamy terrain terrain they are amazing - but get on bare rocks and it's like you're back on ice again...

    DYI stuff is marginal. The real deal are tires manufactured with a cavity that is specifically molded to accept the stud - not a lot choices but available. And the stud is a carbide tipped sucker... Pneumatic Stud insertion tool I've seen are from Germany and are not cheap...

    Over the years I wound up buying a couple stud guns. I never did get around to buying studs and studding a tire

    Nothing like several below zero days to make 20 degrees feel warm.
