    I just purchased a new Yamaha 25 hp outboard motor, and wondered if it was possible to place the motor on the transom of my 14 foot aluminum boat, by myself. Any ideas on how to do this safely.


    Mike U. Welcome to the forum.

    If you have a garage you could try a come-a-long and hang it from a cross beam and lower it down. Or stop by a Crossfit gym and and get some help setting it on there. 🤗

    Oh what a comedian.🤣🤣 just so ya know outta the 40 or so jars I have a 100% seal rate.:P oh wait add the 23 jars of pickles I did earlier.


    Um, go back and read it again.  You said, well spend some of dat moldy cash!!!!!!!!!!  That was for Mike89 not you silly! 🙄

  3. You may want to wait a bit longer for it to cool down more.  Dry and hot with fertilizer on it may just burn it up the rest of the way.  This is been one bad year for lawns let alone new sod. 🙁

    Dual Sport? Is this what we used to call an Enduro? The kids on the neighboring farm to where I grew up had one along with some dirt bikes. I used to want to get one bad but then I got into 3 wheeling, then 4 wheelers so now I stick with 4 wheelers.


    Yep.   Road and dirt.

    Picked up a KLR250.   Like any DS they don't do anything great but I opted for a lighter weight DS.  If your thinking about a KLR you better have long legs.  The Mad Dog ATV seat pad I put on to get some relief added another inch I have to stretch.  I fabricated a rear rack too to get hung up on.   She hums along at 65 mph with more to give but wouldn't want to keep it at those RPMs for long.  So I took off the 15T front sprocket and tried out a 16T and am very pleased with that.   Next I'll be adding saddle bags or panniers then adventure into the Arrowhead Trout Lakes for a day or two.



    Nice!  250cc is prefect for wood and logging road riding. My 650cc is nice on the logging roads but doesn't even get to the power band in the woods most of the time. 

    I also put the mad dog ATV seat on for a little added ride comfort on those long days. Not sure if you can get lowering links for your bike or not?  I put lowering links on and raised the front forks a 1/2" to lower the bike and it sure is nice in the woods on uneven ground. Have fun! 🙂

    No, I'm putting all of THIS meatloaf into the over-priced pellet smoker. You should stick to your day job or at least quit creepy stalking.

    I had to stay home this weekend but I'll be up there next weekend if you want to stop by.


    Did go through Outing last weekend on the way to check on my buddies cabin who is at Sturgis all week. Outing was packed with wheeler folks.

    Next weekend is at BIR watching my Son-in-law drag race. Like I said, lot's going on up there just about every weekend!  Not a lot of time to be to Creepy! 😉

    Pepper sauce time.



    I get jalapenos every year like that. They usually turn back green or move to the red phase.



    Thanks, I'll stop throwing them in thew compost pile!

    Some of my jalapeno's on one plant are turning black the rest look great. What's up with that? Their all getting the same amount of water. 😟

    Almost right on my way up. I might have to stop in and bust your chops sometime. 😁


    But, it's ok Dave. I have a ton of things to do up there then to drive by and creep someone out! 😉

    The verdict: BOTH axels will be replaced under warranty.  No help on the tires though.  I might have to try to convince them otherwise. 🤔


    They probably figure that you made the decision to keep driving on their crappy axles, which wore out the tires? 😕

    That's what I like about it. Other people can have their busy campgrounds....

    Ours is a pretty busy campground most Holidays.  I know where your at as well.  May be I'll blast in and do some shaty's in your lot on my bike and get you kicked out! 😄
