This is good.

Well, that fertilizer is now in the nearest stream, heading to the gulf. That's just as well as you'd have to mow the crap anyway.

LoL.

It's over a few hundred acres. We're going to mow it, wrap it up, and sell it.

This is happening. It's still a little rough but it'll bolt up and work as is.



Time to buy more hardware.

Cool . On the other hand I purchased a fantastic part for a reasonable price on eBay and it almost fits my bike. Grrrrrr.

In other news, new layer of Bedliner on KilLeR and a brand new hundred dollar battery. Time to go find some mud Sunday.

Why is it that nothing I buy actually fits my bikes?

I've decided that, if I'm going to have to make it fit anyway, I might as well try to make the whole thing myself. At least that way I know WHY it doesn't fit... yet....

So anyway, waiting on paint to dry and the front of the bike is apart anyway... guess it's a good time to wire up these little guys from O'Reilly's as blinkers.



Of course the relay to drive them won't get here until sometime next week. So I really just temporarily broke my turn signals.

Now to find something cheap and bright for the rear signals that I've already broken and JB Welded back together 2 or 3 times.

I was in New Mexico last weekend on the WRR and found plenty of mud. Also rode in the rain enough to rinse off the bike and rider. Good luck on your quest for mud this sunday.

Stay in the ruts and try to keep your speed up. It's the only way to unpack the tires. Maybe even spin up the rear some
