E-mail from that guy??

Tell the troops that I was able to get a sh*t load of honey do's done. Got out of, and then back into the doghouse with momma. Something about "don't you have a ride to go on? Get out of the house." ;) LOL

January's Tech Challenge:

OK so I had a substantial "off" on the Lobster (DL650) just before Xmas, riding the power lines close to home. Got hung up in a muddy rut going too fast, tree up ahead, got the front pulled out to the left but was slow getting off the front brake (Dumas!) & she high sided to the right once the tire hit dry dirt. Threw me into the embankment, ribs tore up but not broken, hyperextended wrist, child's play at my young age (!). Maybe a concussion but I've been drooling for years, hard to tell... Tore off the right turn signal, cleanly sheared off the right peg, bent the brake pedal 90 to the rear, easy fixes after the mud was hosed off. Thankfully no damage to the adv-grade SMIB sticker; drove her home after my eyes refocused.

Here's the challenge - the SW Motech engine bars took all the impact & bent 3/4" inboard, into the plastic fairing. No breakage but leaving it alone will gradually eat up the fairing, so I want to pull it back off the plastic. Unless someone tells me there's a secret method to realign the bars, I intend to wedge her between 2 carefully spaced trees, one tight on the left side rear hub, one on the right center, and put a nylon tow strap on the bent bar & gently pull it out with the big tractor.

I have 15 acres of trees to experiment with and a big enough tractor. I already tried tying it off to the dog & throwing the ball in the opposite direction - no good - so pretty sure I need the New Holland.

Any wisdom before this happens his weekend? Can't be the first one to deal with this. I know, pics or it didn't happen...

Santa's elves seem to be quite good. That work is definitely multiple steps up from a wooden train set.

Crow bar or something for leverage I think it will bend fairly easy. AB:-)

The come-along is exactly the thought that wasn't coming to me. As a master at overtorqueing the heads off bolts, I understand restraint & "more control". Thank you - AAR to follow...

Very nice Jack, I know the perfect spot to test the new wheel.


Not sure about RDV yet. I've got to figure out how Campcook feels about me spending our anniversary with you guys in Tennessee.
