  1. Something you might be interested in...or not...

    I fail to see how this could possibly be any fun whatsoever.
  2. It's Time.....

    I'll guess a Super Tenere'
  3. Random Thoughts thread

    Volunteering - I don't have any knees left to ride bicycles <gg>. Might ride out to Pelotonia and ride to Tennessee after that on the way home.
  4. Random Thoughts thread

    I'm not that bored. Probably not gonna be back east until next year for Pelotonia - at least that's the plan.
  5. Random Thoughts thread

    I have never been this bored in my entire adult life.
  6. Yup - pick a date and destination and let's go. I need to score a new bike this Spring and will be ready to ride a bit after that. Anyone else wanna go?
  7. Yes . Both bikes pull up, hand over the pass and two ID;'s and you're both in. As are the passengers - if any -on your bikes. I've used it this way for 9 years with no issues at all. Canyonlands Park Ranger told me to do it this way. Mt. Evans Ranger let 5 bikes in on my pass once (late in the day).
  8. Here's the back side fo the current pass showing the places for two pass holder signatures (I deleted the sigs on mine)
  9. There are two spaces for names and signatures on the back o fthe card. Each one of you can sign it and produce two ID's that match the names and signatures and you're in. This has worked at every National Park that I've been to without exception.
  10. Maybe - my decal works at RMNP, Moab and Canyonland, Mt Evans. Kinda weird.
  11. One annual pass will work for two bikes. There are two signature / name blanks on each pass, so it'll only cost ya $40 each. The annual pass isn't supposed to go up in price - but you could buy one now just to be sure. They will also give you a sticker for bikes so you don't have to fumble aroudn with your pass in your wallet, but you have to ask for the sticker.
  12. "side hustle."

    I think you'd be surprised what you can do with a minimum amount of tools. Could always borrow some tools to help you complete a project.
  13. "side hustle."

    Wasn't finished yet - duct tape to keep the razor blade edges from slicing your pants. Leg isn't welded on either in this pic. We used leather patches on the corners and polished the entire this eventually....
  14. "side hustle."

    ^ This! There's no end to whiners about whatever it is you make. Can't do it themselves, but they tell you how to do. I started making furniture full time a few years ago. Started out making some stuff for a local interior design firm and was amazed at the cash I could get for simple shit. Bikes parts take forever to make and I don't get shit for them. I can do a dining table in 3 days and get $3,500 for it. So now I'm a furniture designer <gg>. Just wish bike parts apid more as I'd rather make them. Some stuff I made...
  15. "side hustle."

    Did a few fuel cells as well but these were made to Iron Butt Association requirements and were specific to each bike - as they were only allowed to carry around 11.5 gallons at the time. Had internal baffles welded in, tip over valves, electrical grounding block, etc. Powdercaoted this one to match a bike - ugly as shit. Usually powdered them black. I used Summit Racing car fuel cells and cut them open to add baffles and reduce them in size. It was cheaper to buy from them than to buy aluminum sheet stock and completely make my own. Plus, I got the fittings with them , etc.
