Question

I put Race-Tech emulators in my DR650 and would like to try them on the Rollins Pass road (the miserable, rocky, hurt my wrists and pound me senseless ) rocky approach to Needles Eye tunnel. Is there any dirt on the east side? Or is it already covered with snow?

Tank yew.

Shorebill and/or Eakins: We are headed to Rabbit Valley for the evening photoshoot. Won't be back until after dark.* If you get here early enough come on out. We will be south of 70.

Does anyone in Aurora/Denver have a band saw I can use to cut up some deer antlers? It's a goofy request, but it'lll take 5 minutes and I'm good for some kind of boozy thankyou gift.

Can you use a cutoff wheel in a grinder?

I want to use a saw because it's a bit cleaner. I guess I cann try my chop saw but I don't want them to explode.

A hand hacksaw would probably cut through them very easily as well..

True, but there are a LOT. I tried the chop saw. It works OK if I plan my cuts. Smells like getting a cavity filled.

And the "sawdust" just kind of flings around. Each cut is a dollar sign.

Way easier. Found a market for using chunks as dog bones. A friend has an existing business and needs a small-dollar item, I had a giant stack of antlers doing nothing.

Eww, jeeze is that alright for dog's teeth? Seems like it'd be a bit hard. Our dog is so hooked on raw hide she'd have my hide if i switched them out hah.
