Not fatal but highly contagious.
Is Trixie still around or did she get cut from the team?
I keep going back to this ad and staring at it.
Those hypermotards are pretty cool.
Great day ride bike on the Front Range.
Anyone ever had their OHV sticker replaced? I stored mine somewhere lost to recent memory.... just curious...
Edit: $5 and a visit to the DOW office results in new stickers....
No, Trixie didn't make the cut. She's at Motorado looking for a new home.
K and I went for a nice trip 2 wknds ago, I decided then that she was just too heavy for what I like these days. I can tour on my 1090, rip canyons on the 690.
A good friend had a Hyper 800 SP when I had my Multi. It was a hoot!
It was an epic time...
Haven't you heard, it was all faked. No way you can get there from a flat earth
Anyone done a trip to Isle of Man?
I want to remove a wall that separates the kitchen and living room, but I need to make sure it's not a load bearing wall. There is a room under the wall but no type of support directly under it.
Any contractors out there that can give me the OK to start swinging a hammer at this wall.
Is your roof trusses or stick framed?
If trusses, you might be able to see from above if they clearspan from exterior wall to exterior wall, or if they have chords that bear at that wall.
Thanks Blake, I'll have to get in the attic and see. I've only seen it once when I bought the house 4 months ago and don't remember what was up there.
Even if it is a load bearing wall (and it tends to sound like it is not load bearing from your description) there are ways to "open it up" and still provide support.
You can carry that load with a header and create a large "framed opening". That will typically take a "wall load" and transfer it to 2 or more "point loads" on either end of the opening. But then, it's even more critical that those point loads are properly supported. Of course that's oversimplifying it. You're doing the right thing by requesting some expert advice on this.
In most cases even poorly thought out modifications are just fine until that really big snow year/snow episode. And then there are cases where people have metal roofs that shed the snow, so they don't worry about supporting big loads ......... but the unsuspecting new home owner replaces the metal with shingles, and now you have a snow load STAYING on a roof structure that may not be able to support it on a big year.
The advice you get ....................................... is usually "worth" just what you pay for it!
High Quality ........................................ please choose 2 of the 3.
Take some pictures and post them up showing what you're looking at doing.
If you're lucky this could blow up like an oil or tire thread!
dare to dream
beam as a replacement load bearing support is a possibility - but the point loads on each end will have to be supported by a 'column' and bigger footing - potential can of worms
Getting ready to ship these to Myler's but thought I'd poll the collective to see if there's a place in COS that does work as good as Terry?
I haven't done this in a while and it shows...
Myler sells replacements for $150 - anyone have any experience with these? The repair cost of these is in excess of new... (not including shipping, removal of temp sensor, fan, etc..)
That picture is disturbing.
On more than one level..
This is what happens when I let a 6'3" friend give a 5'10" me a tall seat... unable to dab anywhere and rode in Sargents where this is a mandatory skill....
reminds me of one of my XR650R's a few years back...
(new oem on ebay for $99)
Anybody going to Mountain Moto Meetup this weekend in Sargents? I'll be there around noon-ish on Saturday, on the Tenner... hit me up if you see an old greygoatee wandering about...
Sorry for the FB linky but that's all there is:
Thinking of buying a hitch-hauler, looking to learn from other's experiences... whatchagot?
Versahaul is what i run. Heavy duty and 2 inch hitch is still available even with rack on.
