    I read it differently. Take out the stuff in the middle and you see that he has made an agreement with the missus, hence he cannot be late. :lol3

    Eddy, I'd avoid trying for Saturday. You want to be alive for date night, not tired and sore. I could be in for Sunday. Depending on what/where we want to ride, I'll pick a bike.

    @Brenda, I know you were discussing a ride for Saturday that possibly involved dirt. If So, I wouldn't mind tagging along. Don't worry, my riding skills on dirt intimidate no one.

    I know you are just teasing Guy.

    P.S. I purchased a really big snow blower at a good price because previous owner had moved into one of those high end retirement neighborhoods where they keep your yard nice and shovel snow for you in the winter. Anyways, it's literally in MINT condition but it won't idle right (jets clogged I imagine) Are you busy? Would you like to add "snowblower repairman" to your CV?

    Totally out of context. I was implying that I will fall over just as much as everyone else and be just as slow or slower.

    Careful John. Spring is a looong ways off. :eek1

    Eddy could wind up renting that thing out for a good return on his investment.

    and not just any snow blower but a really big one? :huh Wonder why it's in mint condition with gummed up carb?

    Can you teach it to blow leaves?

    Does stretch the definition of mint condition. Maybe he was just trying to say it is painted a nice shade of green.

    Of course, it could just be gummed up because the PO ran it once when he first got it and then never had a use for it. Eddy, you better put something in it to prevent the exact same thing from happening after Guy fixes it for you.

    Gummed up, sat for over a year without being used. This is the snow machine, it was close to a grand new!: http://www.powerequipmentdirect.com/Images/MTD-Gold-31AH65FH795-Snow-Thrower/i6232.html

    "Can you teach it to blow leaves?" No need, I also picked up a steal on a yard vacuum that will suck up anything that is not deeply rooted!! :lol2

    Yep - safe bet it's basically new and just gummed up from lack of use.

    (I originally meant to give you a hard time - point being it rarely snows enough for even a small snow blower. Then in interest of not appearing too ass-holey and just it case it does snow a ton and I need to borrow it I edited it down a notch.. :deal :lol3 )

    Behold the mighty Leaf-a-saurus Rex. Found on Williamsburg C.L. several years ago sitting in a storage unit, wouldn't run, looked new w/ all manuals and accessories. Got it cheap!

    It's awesome - I can clean up my yard (~2 acres) in a couple hours vs all weekend with rakes/blowers/tarps.

    2-3 more episodes.....

    Crikey, a 357cc snow blower :eek1

    Nope, we drove right through it. Dusty, me, Tom, and Clyde were right in it. Cop was standing in the middle of the road with a gagle of them pulled over. Thought it was an inspection stop or something. He just glared at us and waved us by as we rolled up. Just looked like a group of guys out having a good time on a nice day. Passing on a double yellow, nope, never done that. Whatever. Man is keeping us down.

    Roger, nice meeting you in West Augusta yesterday, wish I had been on the bike with you guys.

    Also sorry I wasn't with the crew to see you in WA. There will be more rides to Blue Grass for their feast, but buckwheats will be fixed tonight for dinner so I can get my fix. :clap
