    I had always thought no matter how many x rings you line up, the bend radius is the same on the corners as having just one anyways. They look neat, i still dont have any rings. 10 years so far and ive never wished for more than my two CMI 5/8" Arborist Pulley. Strap on the toys boys!

    brendonv replied to a thread Best Lift???? in Gear Forum
    Im thinking sd64 late spring. Hopefully can contribute to carls stock fever. I had the truck, loved using it when i actually did. I just didnt care for driving it, and was always affraid of lawn and driveway damage. Id find reasons not to use it, so off it went. The whole registration, inspection, truck police, kept me from enjoying it. They sure are handy tho, and with how i setup my micro setup, a mobile lift could be a game changer for me. The sd seems stout, some just look so cheasy. The tuepen i ran was scary, he has a omme? now. Im amazed how much thsy thing sways in wind.

    Ya its lame. They expected the healthy people to pay for the sick people. The healthy people said screw this (me included), dropped out, hence the disaster (among other things). Its disgusting, and i get to hear the stories from the hospital from Ashly. Really gets ya fired up

    I had good insurance till obama mandated it. Then it almost doubled, for less coverage too. I dropped it and paid the fine for a couple years, took a risk and got lucky. Nothing i do is safe from my work to after work activities. Luckily i have it now thru Ashly. Insurance is a joke, as is the system.

    I love my trees. I may even pet them and talk to them. No bs. Passerby’s must think I’m nuts. They are like my kids, I’m digging them up when we move.

    Jim, i do beleove the black vs red and white is an older concern. The GX are the pro grade Honda's, while the GC are the lower end. I believe they used to color coat, but now GX also come in black. My love affiar with Honda comes from MX. The materials and craftsman ship of them are obvious next to other manufacturers.

    No footage, never had a computer worthy of loading onto. My bro is building me a computer so that might change. Ktm makes an awesome bike. Its cool they are easy to register. I always wanted an onroad/offroad bike. But the Honda Ruckus will have to do for now :lol: Moto is just darn right fun. This is in Maine, cool pic with the colors.

    Wrong time right place. I tend to spend the most in the winter. I usually grab a brand new mx bike every five years, ride the piss out of them and dump em before they grenade. I was sent a fb link monday night, rolled home tuesday with this. I let someone else take the hit this time, prob has 3-5 hrs on it, by an older guy. Itd take me a moto to put the wear it has on it. Saved $2000 2018 CRF450. I keep reaching for the kickstart and its not there, boy how things change

    I started biking last february. Was able to ride all winter. Really makes you feel good, my pants stopped fitting over my upper leg, its nuts. I slowed down in summer in trade for the motocross. Typically a 10 mile woods loop around here is enough to kick your ass, our most is 30 in VT. All mountain riding. Did some downhill parks too, with the lift assist to the top. Those are fun. Did a couple trips to VT too

  3. Hi Brendon,

    I have a full time job as a Software Engineer. So what I have been doing is working weekends, after work(4-, and vacation days to do tree work. I've only done about 10 jobs this year. I do have insurance and even took that arborculture 101 class in New Haven.

    So unfortunately I have used most of my vacation this year. I would like to improve my methods and effciency; however until I find a more flexible job I don't have a lot of time. Do you ever do anything on weekends?

    Thanks,
    Chris
