Surviving off season!!

Just wondering what everyone will be doing to survive this off season since it began a while ago for most of us. I will be racing in the hornet class at a local dirt track on Sat nights and fixing the car the rest of the week!

Can it! Then you'll at least sound like your keeping up!

school, boating, work on the sled to have it in the best shape for next season! other little jobs around the shop, might build a mini-bike over the summer! have a few frames out back and a couple 3.5 and 5 horse motors kickin around the shop. should be a good little project to keep me busy.

Mine - 1989 Yamaha Phazer 485 w/ Comet 102C and boyesen power reeds. 14,356 kms.

Dads - 1997 Yamaha V-max XT 600 stock w/ polaris P-85 clutch

Brothers - on its way home soon! either a yamaha or skidoo. not sure what yet.


First ride of the 2009/2010 season - 11/12/09
09/10 km's - over 1200. pretty good for only half a seasons worth of riding.

rebuilding the snowmobile engine that decided to eat a ring, which in turn decided it didn't like the cylinder, or the piston, or any bearing for that matter...

A lot of work and weekends on the boat wakeboarding.

When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things.

Lots and Lots of work, it's never ending on a farm. Hopefully get everything planted by the end of July, work on the cattle sheds/hog houses, and get stuff ready for fall. And in between all that mudding.
