Question Is it too early for a sledding video?

Live, from Enduro Alaska (on a tape delay,of course) is the most recent video:



I'm still out on two wheels right now, but I know my days are numbered....

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

I admire someone who doesn't wait to do maintenance until the middle of the season when there is a broken sled on the trail. We NEVER seem to get to that point, however.

It's 20f this morning though. Maybe a little wrenching instead of riding the trials bike is in order.

Maybe.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Still working on motorcycles right now but you've got me thinking it's almost time. Might as well work on the sleds, drink beer, and get fired up about winter by watching some cool videos. Pretty much a waiting game right now. I don't have a between season ride right now but I'm working on it!

I got in a ride down to G-wood for a mocha last week on the Strom. I've been in the cave ever since worshipping the sleds. The Doo is getting new rubber and the vintage Indy needs some clutch alignment(remounting the motor) after lending her out to some 20-somethings for a few years. Thanks for the inspiration BW!

Cliff just picked up a YZ450 with a 2Moto kit on it. That will probably be as close as I get to a Mountainhorse for the foreseeable future.

I fear for my savings account if the opportunity to ride a Mountainhorse arises. Cliff was holding out for a MH but the 2Moto kits are soooooo much cheaper on the used market as guys upgrade to the latest and greatest.

My long term plan does involve a MH to help consolidate the fleet a little bit and make everything more economical to operate. That is my Kitchen Table Argument. How did that sound?

Well, a mountainhorse does seem like a natural for you and your crew. It might even win a few mud bogs and water skipping events as I picture it in my head. Maybe Santa will bring you one if you been nice this year......

Laugh Nicely done sir...

I must say MR. BIGWHEEL that put a huge grin on my face. I'm currently estranged from Alaska sitting in a dark room in Cairo, Egypt.
Thanks for using your precious time to put together yet another thoroughly entertaining piece of video art for us.

Cheers!
