    Any ways to protect your radiators?

    the unibiker rad. braces are the way to go. I smashed my wr rad. on a small fall and had to replace the rad. I've taken some hard falls with the unibikers with out even a twist to the rads. unibker braces are great and way tougher than the works connection braces.

    How do "you" break in your boots?

    I use the same trick for my moto boots as I do my snowboard boots... I put them on the boot drier for a couple hours until they are nice and WARM (not hot). Then I wear them around the house for a little while. This seems to help the boots retain a memory of my foot. It really works well on the snowboard boots since they a liner that is heat sensitive to retain the shape of your foot. But it did work on my moto boots alright.

    it just snowed another foot here (vermont). that makes 4 feet on the ground in my yard, could be a while. Hopefully by the end of march we can ride the sandy spots.

    Am I giving up too easily? ('05 WR450)

    $3500 seems pretty realistic to me. I paid $4700 for my 05 wr450 brand new just a left over on the showroom floor.

    Good looking thor wear

    My rule of thumb is if it's the same color as my bike I don't buy it.
  6. My favorites are my chain morticer, 16" circular saw, and 12 1/4" power planer, all for building timber frame homes, oh can't forget the chissel.

    F-250 mpg

    There's two things that I know about the 460's, they like gas and drink lots of it, and they are prone to blowing headgaskets. Other then that good strong motors. If you only drive 7k a year I wouldn't be too concerned about the milage.
