  1. Tri moto 125

    AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure. You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot. Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed. Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves. Mike
  2. My first and last ride of the season

    HMMM.... I don't own a pontoon BUT.... if a person wants to line up some guys to head west sometime..... I'M READY!!!! Leech sounds a little cranky!! must not have gotten enough miles on the sled this year and YOU'RE the retired one!!!! I didn't get squat for miles on my sleds this year either, 90% of my riding was to the fish house and back but we'll be changing that SOON!
  3. My first and last ride of the season

    QUITTER!!! Heck, I'm just getting ready to head west for the 1st time this year! if it's good, I reserve the right to go back! Todays daily pic ......
  4. Oh boy is it snowing out West

    They said NOPE keeping it all to themselves...... I see my link up above must have gotten changed with the pictures of the HUGE avalanches that went off up there last weekend, buried one of our trails to the backcountry in 10 - 20 feet of Avalanche debris! Looks like you can pretty much walk from the snow to the roof of this cabin now, and the snowiest part of the winter ' should ' still be left.
  5. Colorado is about 150% of their average snow fall for this time of year, my buddy out there says it's just great and I see the pictures online and its looking awesome Cooke City has been caught in a ' atmospheric river' as they say, unbelievable snows up there right now. I haven't made it out that way yet this year but the plans are to head that way soon. Feast you eyes on this video....
  6. What is the sense of this rig?

    Do I have to follow the ride safe rules?
  7. What is the sense of this rig?

    Probably to prevent this! Looks like someone had TOO much time on their hands!
  8. Leech or others - Trout on Big Trout????

    Ok.... thanks for the info.... might have to put it on the list if the fishing season is long enough this year
  9. Leech or others - Trout on Big Trout????

    Serious???? I'm not a trout fisherman but I'm in search of Whitefish this winter to go angling for and if I can help it, I don't want to have to go back to Ontario ( although they were nice sized Whities ) if I don't have to but I am looking for Whitefish, not Tulibee. Any size to the Whitefish ( if that's what they are ) ? We've zero'd in a few lakes to go give it a try. Mike
  10. Sorry Ladies!

  11. Ion x or Strikemaster lithium lazer

    I agree...... I've cut about 50 holes with my Strikemaster Lithium Lazer ( refurb ) I picked up this fall and it's worked flawlessly, haven't treated any different than a Jiffy 30. Mike
  12. Ion x or Strikemaster lithium lazer

    Picked up the reconditioned 50v Lithium Laser at Scheels a few weeks ago, all the updates were done, full warranty just the same as new. For $399..... heck ya!!! Mike
  13. If it Snows.....

    We gotta be due for a dandy snow year soon! Speaking of snow...... I headed out to a buddies place over the 4th around Carbondale Colorado, he and his wife just built a new house and I had to go check it out. We went ' Jeepin ' for a couple days in the high country, once again.... what a BLAST! had a chance to do that 20 years ago and it was just great!! Even got a chance to kiss a couple snow banks and a scenery just can't be beat..... Mike
  14. Dumping Cable for Streaming

    I use a Tivo Roamio for OTA DVR recording, this device also comes with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, YouTube and much more. The Tivo DVR subscription runs $15 per month. Mike
  15. Connecting wireless printer to new network

    Since that 2270dw printer has no LCD screen, you will have to reinstall the printer on your computer again via the USB cable, then join the WIFI network just as you did before. If you don't have the install CD, that's ok, just download the full driver install on Brothers page for the HL 2270DW, it's the same as you had on the CD. Mike
