    Show us your Motorcycles

    Really like my drz400 but mostly for dirt roads and trails, with knobbies it gets buzzy on pave. Needed the 1250 bandit because the wife likes to go now.

    Exactly how high should I mount my outboard

    Without a tach cant say for sure if its a prop saying that it very well could be. They make cheap induction tachs that could help you dial that in. Maybe I missed it but put the boat size shape and prop pitch you currently have and someone may have a similar setup to help. For me, its...

    Gasoline Prices

    Seeing as i drive an oversized 4x4 tundra, not aloud to complain. I will be looking to downsize but nothing has caught my eye. Smaller trucks around here are just as expensive and not alot better on fuel. Thought someone would make a small diesel but fuel is as high as gas now. Maybe a bronco...

    Its mostly the weight saving im looking for as well. I charge my batteries in the basement and lugging a group 31 around is getting old, just like me. Im also thinking of going to a 4 stroke, which is going to add some weight as well depemding on which hp i go with. I know i can move things...

    Anyone but the lifepo4 batteries through amazon? They seem to be half the price of what i can find through other places. Canadian price of $550 ish, with the little searching ive done the mext lowest is $960 for a 100 aH 12V. Do you think i would need a 100aH , for a 55lbs thrust trolling motor?

I dont know maybe I just dont have it.set right. The tiny tach people had good customer service and will tell you which one...

    Deer season

    Ive been in my stand every evening for the last 2 an a half weeks. Lots of does,fawns and 1 little spike but nothing to get my heart rate up yet. Still warm(not 90 warm) and the fn mosquito are driving me crazy but it only takes 1 night to get lucky. I only used my bow last season, probably...
