I know it's killing me to have the girl sitting in the garage all the time .
I feel like I'm neglecting my girl

So after replacing the worn out woodruff key and crank nut, I used a dab of red loctite and tightened the 6 loose crank gear bolts on the 400. Its super quiet now, glad I tore it down before that gear blew through the side of the magnesiun cover

The ice is fun, but I cant wait until summer to test this thing out!

Those dunes slowly creeping into the forest. They seemed even bigger last year than the video shows. Love the sound track, it fits perfect.
