Being a fellow Electrician, here's a tool you will love! I never leave home without mine and fits comfortably in my pants coin pocket!
Leatherman Squirt ES4



Yes, wire strippers 12ga down to 20ga! Also, the file isn't your standard nail file, its thick and course! Those are more of snips than they are scissors! Also has a straight blade tweeker!

Yep, 10lbs for a center stand or 10 oz's for one of these things.

A no brainer in my book.

Greetings, Noah !! Finally had to chime in here. As a Duluthian, it's a riot to see that MN plate all over the globe. This continues to be one impressive RR. I hope the boarding in Georgia is excellent. Our (non)-winter continues to disappoint. Keep on doing what you're doing !! Peace Out

I was wondering when you would chime in Luke.
I got a flat in Monaco. there were no rocks on the side of the road to be found. I thought I would get arrested for changing my tire on the side of the road like a "commoner"

Rocks would be nice....but way down here in south Louisiana we don't have rocks to stack, and the rocks we do have is gravel trucked in from a place that does have rocks.

We do eat pretty well though

Yeah, the Snowcross always seems to go on with made snow. It's raining now, rained last night. Can't quite remember last snowfall. Grim, indeed !! A cool-off is coming, but it's ugly out there right now. Winter used to mean something !

You aren't joking! I can remember when I was a youngin when my dad had to get a frontend-loader to move the snowbanks so he could continue to plow the driveway. Mid winter the snowbanks were 15-20 feet high and there would be 4 feet of snow in the yard. I am not sure the last time MN has had a good winter like that.

On a side note, I made it to Rustavi Georgia. Just south of Tbilisi. The road to Gudauri is snowed in so tomorrow I will put the KTM in the back of a pickup and make it to Gudauri. I met up with the guys from Team KTM Georgia and they are helping me out lots. Apparently we are going snow-biking on KTMs with tracks/skis tomorrow. I think this is going to be a very good winter here.
