  1. Saw first motorcycle out today

    I know what was meant.... and some corners / intersections on the country roads are always sandy. I ride the big bikes and have learned to deal with it rather than stay home. In our state you already have too short a riding season. gotta make the most of every possible time.
  2. Saw first motorcycle out today

    Wait? Are you kidding me? Some sandy areas?? Hell we have that year round in my neck of the woods, just got to know how to ride it. My son and I will be out in full force this weekend! Been riding for 40 years and every first ride of the year there's snow in the ditches. Even drag raced a snowmobile one year. God I love that first ride to get in the wind again after being grounded a few months. Best therapy in the world, mind is never as clear.
  3. Toyota Tundra

    thanks rundave. Exactly the kind of thing im looking for. and yea the truck I currently have rides rough the same way empty--that's how it should be in a truck. If i want a car ride I will drive a it rides a lot smoother and doesn't squat like its begging for mercy with a load on.
  4. Toyota Tundra

    Looking at a used 2nd gen. 5.7 tundra to buy. are there any important updates or changes to pick one year over another? Like a 2009 instead of an 07 or 08? Any common problems or recalls to look out for? And if you own one how do you like it? good points vs bad? real world mpg? ....basically anyone with experience of one of these I'd like to hear from ,,figure the guys on this site would use one like I will, on the lake, in the woods, towing, not just bringing groceries home. Any help is appreciated.
  5. What makes good Flathead habitat?

    Hey guys, As my mind turns to thinking about the river opening up I have a question I've always wondered about. I fish the upper Miss. between Becker and Clearwater and the channel cat fishing is awesome. But I am always jealous of the guys I see getting the big flatheads on the minnesota river. If they can flourish on waters like that how come they cant on the upper Miss? As far as I know the dnr stocked the channels years ago and its been a great success. Why not the flatheads too? All I can think of in the difference between the rivers is the smallies, is it that they would hurt the smallie population? Thats just a guess I really have no idea, anyone more knowledgeable about this have any answers?
  6. Anyone going for a ride on Sunday?

    Put a few miles on yesterday just for an encouraging positive reminder in future winters that get long and snow late-- "hey remember the one year I went for a ride the same day we got 10 inches" With this forecast the season is now in full go for me, just be careful guys, of course the sand is typically bad but the potholes are as bad as my 30 years riding have seen. it felt like playing a video game trying to avoid them in certain spots.
  7. Whos your favorite driver?

    Completely agree. Harvick is always the one pushing around the new guys, Legano etc. One of the biggest Hacks out there. I have to bow out though to superior knowledge as the guy apparently attends many races a year as the only way I found to get the spotter scanner is to be at the races. And it would take more than a time or two of listening to conclude a guy like Kenseth is a hack even though hes never in the kind of dirty crapp Harvick is. I dont live or die by any one guy but there sure are some different "styles" I cant believe some of these drivers have any fans at all. and yeah it will be interesting whith two of the biggest whiners on the same team, Rosie and Happy
  8. Whos your favorite driver?

    Lol, Yea even as a casual fan I sort of wished he would have decked him too. I guess you are one up on me there as I've never listened to the spotter scanner. Is that something you can get at home online or just at the track? Also what kinds of stuff would he do? dont all of them do all they can short of wrecking a guy to stay ahead?
  9. Whos your favorite driver?

    Really? Once again the internet is full of opinions without any knowledge. Name examples of how Kenseth is a hack..being your the first and only person ive ever heard say that im thinking your a hater with brand loyalty as your standard being you said "anyone that drives toyota" and all your Favorites drive chev. (fit right in with JR nation rednecks) He's a frickin past champion from back when you had to earn a title! plus one of the most respected drivers in the sport. Tell you what for every example you give that he's a "hack" I bet I can give two for any of the guys you listed as favorites
  10. Whos your favorite driver?

    Hey all, Killin time waiting for the season to start, thought it would be fun to hear opinions who's your fav. and hated drivers and why? EXCLUDING JR & JJ for obvious reasons!! Mine are: Kenseth , Kahne, and good ol Mark Martin for nostalgia sake. top of the class I feel, great guys, all very smart, will race you clean to allmost a fault, but still as talented as they come. Hated: BOTH Bush brothers, Arrogant as can be, whiney, screaming, children with anger issues. Nobody should ever talk to people like they do on the radio. Hacks that will wreck both of you before letting the better car win. Alright, there are lots more on both sides lets hear some?
  11. HSO Fantasy Nascar 2014

    Im in, Glad to be back!
  12. New Chase System?

    Exactly! But that takes all the luck out and replaces it with awarding a champion based on cosistency and skill thus going away from the ultimate goal of the france's....getting lucky and getting JR a championship! Ouhhhhh (rub hands together) think of all the more marketing dollars to be made with Jr the champion merchandise! and lets be honest here it always comes down to money and luck is the only way he will get one so thats what this is all about I dont care what the love-blind Jr nation says they wont stop screwing with the system until he gets one and if that finally happens it will never, ever, ever be changed again EVER for the rest of time!
  13. Shaky Jake 2001 Toyota??

    Glad it worked out for you..the above statements I could not agree with more. Nice to know I'm not the only one that still drives and prefers rwd cars. My inlaws and such shake thier head at me and my disdain for fwd ,,they are not exactly "car guys"
  14. 48 CHEATS

    Hey, Some of you guys that post on here about the racing should in the future join up for the Fishing Minnesota nascar fantasy racing league. Not only is it fun but its run by one of the best commissioners I know of ( I have a big money league im in that I would love to have him run) AND then you can put your money where your mouth is so to speak. In other words everybody thinks they know what they are talking about but when you have to go head to head against other guys and everything is recorded the results speak for themselves.
  15. Need New Commuter Vehicle

    Ufatz (now I get the name ) Yep your right to each their own. But if you could please, please upload a photo or better yet a small U-tube vid. of you getting in and out of that thing at your size I cant believe its that easy, I have to see it with my own eye's...... My thoughts of it instantly go to the clown's in the small car at the circus
