Calibrate the valve core torque wrench first, the extra weight of a chainsaw will alter the front tire air balancer.

Though the enduro engineering mount above looks nice,    here's some other images.  Hmmm  I would like a front mount where I don't have to remove my front light      and I do like the rear mount idea too.   But this  milk crate idea is too funny.   I am NOT doing that

What saw are you going to use?

We have some serious questions that need to be answered:

 

1) how are you going to mount you Tugger strap if the saw is in the way?

 

2) That’s extra weight up front. What spring rate are you getting for your forks? High speed compression? Rebound?

 

C) Do you need to increase your front tire PSI? Does that , in turn, facilitate the increase in your valve stem torque number?

Edit: I see that Hockdog already addressed this issue.

 

4)

Seriously....if I have to carry a chain saw, I'm going to go to lunch in town instead.

With the weather we've had this year, you're gonna be having a lot of lunches. 😄

  The last ride I did with Bob we encountered 10-12 trees.  One blocked a trail bad enough that we had to turn around.  We moved two other off the trail using 4 big guys.  The rest we just hopped over, drug the bikes over, or ducked under.  A chain saw would've been nice to remove them once and for all.  After this last set of storms and snow I am betting there will be a lot more downed trees

OK.  Sounds good.  I'll wait until the week AFTER you guys ride then.  :)

I am scheduled for USFS sawyer training for OHV volunteers in GT March 29-30.   I am the one who invented USFS sawyer training at GT 12 years ago with John Jue.  I am re certifying and getting me a saw and a mount and leading the way once again.    And I am still going to go mineral hunting at clear creek too one day WITH a legal permit.
