    Been having some fun over the last couples days..

    First, been thinking of toying with Tubliss and I'm running MX-71s lately front and rear, so I bought that spare front wheel on KSL thats been listed for eons, with tubliss and a new tire and basically got a free wheel out of the deal.. Only thing was the guy who sold it to me [hehem, moron] put a whole bottle of slime into the wheel. When I picked it up I swear it weighed,.. 30lbs?? Huge, disgusting mess. Slime sucks!

    Second, these are pretty badass gauges designed for off roaders / low tire pressures, and a big fat gauge. Cruiser Outfit on this board (www.cruiseroutfitters.com) sells them out of his place down in Sandy.. A little expensive ($29) but I think worth it versus everyone dicking around with their inaccurate gauges in my opinion...

    Finally, engine's pulled and decided to break down the '10 450 XC-W and clean it up a little while I have it apart.. In deep!

    Frame only remarkably weighs about 20lbs once totally stripped...

    There are a couple of places that have little ones and 3 and 4 wheelers for rent but only around town and the dunes.I do not know of a big bike rental place in SF.

    Tim usually keeps his bikes on this side of the border but he is always open to offers.

    If anyone is looking for a camp trailer I'm selling my 20 footer. Also selling my enclosed and ATV trailer. Toy hauler took the place of them all. :D

    Hey guys, Did some snowmobiling this weekend up in the uintas and had a blast!! It got my thinking about snow bikes. I remember when the 2moto kit came out and I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen.

    I was wondering if any of you have experience with any of the snow bike conversions?? Are they really hard to ride? do you shift while you ride? I see mainly 4 strokes, is there any negatives to using a 2 stroke? Is it really hard on the bike mechanically? And last but not least.... Does anyone have a snow bike conversion they would let me test out.. haha, no body? no takers? hahaha. I m pretty responsible..

    Any ways I appreciate any and all input!

    A pic from today, hitting the uintas at sunrise!

    Mesquite USRA race is Jan 26th. Getting a hankerin' to race again, if for no other reason than it keeps me in shape. Plus it makes for a nice break from the snow. So I have a question for y'all.

    I sold my 300 and now only have the 690. Do you guys think its too big for a deep sand, whoop covered, tight course like Mesquite is generally known for?

    Anyone tried this android app? http://dualsportmaps.com/

    I guess the dev is an inmate... I'm going to try it. I'd love a rugged tablet for navigation!

    I've used it a few times. It gives your device ability to track with and without a network signal. Worked pretty well. I like their website for making tracks also.
