    Copper Sulfate in a stocking, tie it to the back of the row boat and circle till it is gone. That was my chore to keep the pond clear when I was a kid.

    I think that was your dads way of teaching you how to work. My dad had a RV dealership. When I was 12 he would make me hook up every trailer and tow it around the lot to circulate the bearing grease.
    It was his way of teaching me how to hook up and back up a trailer. :lol3

    Two wheel trailers are easy.
    How are you with a 4 wheeled hay wagon?

    My buddy lives next to the Rosston boat launch. We used to set on his porch drink beer and laugh our asses off at people trying to back those short jet ski trailers in. We were easily amused in those days. :freaky

    Just received word that Country Rode in Fairport will be closing. This Saturday is their last presentation event and it seems like a great one to go out on: "Wayne's Awesome Trip to the Arctic Circle". It's a great excuse to spend money on motorcycle stuff At least you know your purchase will help local business owners bow out gracefully instead of supporting some discount website in cyberspace.

    Was Country Rode sold or are they just shutting down? No other BMW dealer close by. I guess it’s good that I just sold my bike.

    Been talk of Towne Automotive opening one here for a year or so now.

    Maybe it’s true now?
