  1. Duffman solo in pics

    Duff I think you can make this there and add it to the rental yak!
  2. Great! Didn't always want to run over to South St Paul to see what they had.
  3. We could be riding the nsst

    Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat? Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt! Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year? High speed trails. May be not?
  4. Uggh, Lug nuts

    It may be that they knew the folks up there needed a little extra help because they couldn't get the Righty tighty-Lefty loosey deal down. So, they had to make special trucks just for the Yukon Territory?
  5. Uggh, Lug nuts

    Um, isn't that the reason for using a Torque stick so that the lugs are Not "over torqued" just by the wrench?
  6. Question for Y’all

    Pretty sure not many folks would get up to Oak Inland Ice fishing on Lake of the Woods without pulling their porty sleds on the snowmobile trail that runs up there if it was an issue.
  7. Uggh, Lug nuts

    They should use a Torque stick when putting them on, but none do. Does she have the craapy lugs with the "Tin foil" cap over the nut? I love how those round off. I replaced all the Tin foil lug nuts on my SUV and snowmobile trailer with solid SS lug nuts. They cost more but, I hope to not be sitting half in half out of a snow cover ditch in the middle of no where trying to get striped lugs off!
  8. Another new Invasive

    So what is it this time? Fish or Crustaceans? Do they have any ideas how it got in the lake yet?
  9. Any Dual Sport riders out there?

    Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
  10. What the heck is up with this dead thread? Any Dual Sport riders want to meet up for a ride. I have my DR650 up in Brainerd and could meet up some weekend for a ride through the Bunyan, Outing, Longville areas?
  11. Snowmobilers and driveways

    Didn't say you would.
  12. Snowmobilers and driveways

    Suzanna, if you had not saw the signs in the ditch on either side of your driveway in the past nor had a snowmobile groomer come through there. It sounds like one of the local snowmobile clubs may have added that stretch of ditch to their trail system. You may inquire around the area which snowmobile club is grooming and maintaining the trails in the area and talk to them. They can talk to their members about driveway jumping but they really can't stop some of the young nonmember folks around there from doing it. Please do not do anything like icing down the ditch, blocking it with things like logs, wire or anything else. If someone gets injured as a result of something you did, you will be liable.
  13. Outing-Remer area snow.

    Was up fishing at my buddies cabin last weekend north of Outing and was surprised to find some pretty good fresh and fluffy snow on the lake and in the woods. Didn't get out on any of the trails but on the lake and short run off of it wasn't to bad. Thought I would pass it along for these who haven't found anything to ride in yet?
  14. Minnesota Shrimp

    Just hope the filleter did an ok job on the bones though?
  15. History Channel’s ‘Vikings’

    Yeah, you can love um long time Joe!
  16. Anyone else think this shows a bit over done? Every show, shows their all blood covered, hording messes of feeling less killers. Fast forward a few 1,000 years in Minnesota their known for Hot dishes, bars and Lutefisk dinners at their Lutheran church's! What happened? I can see my Great Grandma Lillian welding a Krumkake iron, but not a two sided Axe!
  17. History Channel’s ‘Vikings’

    Hi LeslieBeasly Welcome to the forum. Bot time you showed up. Try posting on some more current threads then from two years ago.
  18. Share good music

  19. Question on a-maze-in smoker

    Dave, it costs like nothing to try and either you or I will be wrong-Again!!
  20. Question on a-maze-in smoker

    This. Get it a bit higher off the heat and slow down the air more to the wood and she will smoke. Again pretty cheap to try.
  21. Question on a-maze-in smoker

    Try wrapping a sheet of tin foil over the top of it and poke small holes. It's cheap to try.
  22. There is like a bizzion used sleds For Sale right now on many of the sale sites if your looking for one. Many pretty good deals and lots of worn out junk as well, so look them over good and bring a compression checker with you. Ask lots of questions as well. Good Luck!
  23. Now is the time to buy a used Sled!

    No you just need to get a Fan-Arctic Cat! Funny thing out of the 12-13 snowmobiles I have had. I had to rebuild 3 SkiDoo's for melt downs, not one of the Polaris's, Cat's, Yamaha, or Rupp.
