    That was my buddy Dave. He accidentally hit the shifter while cleaning snow off. It was pretty comical.

    Well, If i could get my wife to climb on it with me, on front but facing rearward, hope to be riding the grandkids around in the yard!


    That's awesome. We grow and make our own with some other varieties. I just pulled a sample from an aging tank couple nights ago, coming along nicely.


    :patch Is that a garage, or a den with a couple bikes in it?

    If you keep that front end up, you'll save money on tires. By the second pictures and the rubber nipples...rubber nipples...oh back on track....your strategy is working. Those front nipples have a long life ahead of them...

    I plan on going on another road trip this Spring. I'm going to ski in Oregon at Bachelor, then Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Lakes California. Ride the Snake Pit of Mojave, then the Baja, then off to Palm Desert for a rest, then off to New Mexico, thru SW Colorado, Moab, and then home. I'm expecting the trip to be 5 weeks.

    I have lots of videos of my last road trip, but I also made a slide show of the trip. I was sooooo sick of rain when I hit the road the day after Easter...

    Looking for some advice or suggestions.

    I had a cheap pressure washer from Lowe's. It survived a little over a year but finally succumbed to use. Lowe's products, you're not supposed to actually use their stuff...I hate Lowe's and Home Depot...

    Anyways, I need a new pressure washer. I'd prefer electric but I want higher quality which I'm willing to pay for.

    I want the washer for my bikes, cleaning my truck, and various work around the house.

    Thanks!

    The first few days of my trip the rain just kept following me. Finally, I arrived in Moab! Yep, last NW Winter was one for the ages, set all sorts of records.

    Costco, good idea, will see what they're offering.

    I have the Costco gas powered pressure washer with the Honda engine. Been bulletproof so far.

    Whatcha need a pressure washer when it rains there almost every day ?? Squirt some soap on it and leave it outside (drops the mike, FU Washington !!)

    I blew thru about 4-5 big box store pressure washers, spendy to cheap, they all suck.

    Bro-in-law gave me his semi commercial one. Dont know that brand, but it has a 10hp Briggs and a pump the size of a small generator. Lowest setting is 2000psi :yikes:yikes Hoping not to peel the cedar siding off my house next year with it.

    Dont count out electric models. I picked up one at an auction for $20, figured I could afford to throw it away for that price. Its not a powerhouse at 1600psi, but it gets the job done better than I thought. Best part is no gas and super quiet. Probably not stout enuf to clean the skids outta your drawers from a Snake Pit session, but it will clean swamp goo off your Gourd. I only run HOT water thru mine, hasn't destroyed the pump yet.
