Eat some pizza

Find some Chicago pizza such as Gino's. I'm not from Chicago but when I'm there I eat pizza. Maybe some locals have some more insight.

Dr650

I have a DR650 and a KTM250 XCF-W that I have made street legal. I love both bikes but not a DR650 in tight woods. When I got the KTM I was intimidated by the height. I am also 5'8" but I have...

Off Road Boots

If you do any off road riding invest in some off road boots. After a good helmet boots should be a close second. Foot and ankle injuries are common and I am speaking from experience. For entry level...

Get a dirt bike

Everyone should have a small (250 or less) dirt bike to play on. Buy it at a good price such as < $2000, take care of it and if you get tired of it you should be able to get most of your money back.

I think the part number you want for the pole is Square D QO1816M200FTRB. This will allow you to distribute and add breakers for the various out building as well as a 200 amp service for your house.

I have the BBQ rack, does a great job of protecting the turn signals. If I didn't have it I would have lost my rear turn signals long ago. Oh yeah, it also makes a great luggage rack for a duffle bag.
