Sucks. I do have a single Hot Grips heated grip. Just one. It should fit the Katoom if you ever need one more, Looks bit different. It's just lining my shelf.

My sled(09 ski doo summit) has a layer of thin cork underneath the stock warmers and it is crazy hot on high and decent on low. The stock price was something like $30 for the pair if memory serves.

I have to replace my handlebar, due to the tree not bending

SnowMule, what do you recommend for cutting out AL floorboards on a sled and putting in better snow clearing boards? Do you have a heavy duty riveter? Thanks.

I might take advantage of my "opportunity" having another pair and actually triple shrink-wrap my left bar and put the throttle grip on the left bar.

It's Here and almost as good as in the pictures. A little nip here and a tuck there and it will be ready to go.

After I get it fixed up and proven, you may. For about 20 feet.

I can't wait to see it in person, Marc - it looks exceptionally clean.
Pick a weekend you want to do couple days ride and we'll get outta Dodge with you on that hot rod.

If I go for a ride with LittleGrub, will he break my leg?

I MIGHT be able to keep up with him. For 60 feet or so.

Congrats for being a good daddy. He will always remember this time. I look forward to meeting him. I have a helmet with some bruises; it's probably too big, but you are welcome to it.


(((((BTW: most of the bruising is gone, I get the cast off next Thursday and go into a boot. Three weeks I'll be ready to go up in to the canyon; assuming the snow is gone.)))))

It needs some work before hitting the road. I will be around Saturday after 10:00 if you get bored and want to bring a registration up.

Interesting self arrest technique:
rag doll down the mountain until you stop for awhile.
Then slide after your snow machine for awhile. Then yell.

I'm so glad we live in the era of GoPro cameras and we can see all this idiotic stuff

That was awesome, no one got hurt except in the wallet. That was a very high risk and cool climb. Almost made it. Thanks for sharing.

The guy is not an idiot, he just got bit by the risk. He clearly had lots of talent. Part of taking risk is dealing with the consequences.

Geek:

I have a few spare of the plastic inserts that the Hot Grips uses. Their grips have the same diameter on both sides. You use the little white plastic inserts on the clutch side. Should do the same thing.
