That's pretty crafty !! nice home made saw mill.
Certainly would be good out behind a barn!

Fine ingenuity !

I went out to the shop on a cold saturday morning and picked my poison.... ( my next project) 1973 honda elsinore 250 MT

Had a fun day stripping it down and finding all the little things I want to fix. I plan to paint and freshen up and have around just for the fun of it

A Taste of Tracks

A bunch of this needs to be pre-run, but here's what we're potentially looking at for Saturday. I recycled part of the Fall 2012, as no one got to see the long-range views because of weather. They are spectacular. There are some very nice tech sections to be had, and the ability to re-join the main group for the whole ride. I will plot some bail-out routes for those who may not want to do the whole run. We're looking at approximately 200 miles for the day. There will be many hours of daylight to do so. The sun rises around 5:30 and sets at about 8:30 on the weekend we have scheduled.

how much of a "+"? I can get anywhere from 80 to 100 miles to a tank on my LC4, my gas can is that 30 oz MSR bottle, probably adds 5 miles to the range...

There are very few places that you're more than 30 miles from gas on these routes. Please note, however, that some of the towns have been hit hard by a combination of a bad economy and closure of the paper mills, so in places, there is nothing beyond 87 octane available.

I'm trying to keep the ride moving. With a group of more than a few bikes, a group gas stop eats up a lot of time. As we're starting from and returning to the campground, we can run light bikes. Rain gear, warm gear, and some food and water is all you'd really need to pack, along with any parts like tubes and cables you feel you may need. This adds to the fun.

As a former bush pilot, I'm paranoid about fuel. My DRZ hits reserve at 130 miles, and I carry a 1.75 gallon Rotopax on the tail rack. I've rarely been in a position where I thought I'd brought too much gas.

You'll probably be fine.

My tank holds 3 gallons, I'd get and Adventure tank (or whatever they call it) adds about 1.5 gallons but they never come up for sale cheap so the only option is buying new from dealer. I do have a sturdy rack, can probably bolt on some type of larger gas can to it

I know that it should have been американский, but I thought that the feminine diminutive pejorative sounded better.

AtlasEXP has been having difficulties in his role as Supreme Russian Cultural Commisar, so I am breaking his balls a little.

I do. Sometimes I get a little jazzed out in the bush and all alone. When the weather warms up, give me a yell.

the way you spelled некультурный (adjective) it refers to a male subject, and америка simply means America as a country

American, as a person living in America in its male version would be Американец and female Американка but then for the female subject Adjective would have to be female also некультурная

so некультурный Американец or некультурная Американка

yo can also say некультурная Америка if you referring to entire country

ok, I retire now, my brain has overheated having to recall all this long forgotten high school crap
