  1. Another update directly from Polisport on the new xtrainer plastic kit: First shipments will be shipped by the end of July, so between 4 and 6 weeks, it will available in USA.
  2. Can't just overfill the tires or maybe use some pipe insulation or similar to add some thickness (that's what she said)?
  3. I've got bins full of riding, camping, etc gear in there. So it is getting used in my case.
  4. I've got the 4" adapter from here (for my stock, 4x2, ram 1500 - I'm just that short and modern trucks are that tall ): https://www.discountramps.com/mx-hauler-hitch-adapters/p/404-HITCH-ADAPTERS/
  5. My dad would've loved this. If he was in the middle of a field swinging a shovel or stomping randomly chances are there was a snake involved. He killed every one he saw, poisonous or not. He said it had to do with keeping the horses safe but he killed the ones far away from the horses too. Just hated them.
  6. I've never known anyone to do that. However, the rattlers are very common so anti-venom is easy to get/most hospitals/clinics near the mountains have it or can get it quickly. Of course, you can be in a pretty remote location without easy access so a kit might make sense. I haven't heard of anyone dirt riding actually getting bit though.
  7. Yeah, but they go for your lower leg so boots are generally good enough (I do wear full armor though). I was out trail running once and saw a copperhead crossing about 10 yards in front of me. He stopped, stuck his head up, and just stared at me for a few minutes before moving. I don't wear armor when running so I just gave him his space.
  8. Copperheads can be very aggressive (I assume because their venom isn't all that bad) and the east coast rattlesnakes are about as deadly as any snake.
  9. Yeah, I think you're right. We seem to want to take the hatchbacks, jack them up, and pretend they're trucks now...
  10. I wonder if that's cause it smells like cat pee...
  11. I have never understood sedans. Since picking up a small recliner and putting it in the back of my 78 VW scirocco I have favored hatchbacks. While my 78 buick park avenue had a huge trunk it could not carry something as big as the tiny VW could. If I was doing a car I would get a hatchback. Before getting my truck (which I bought for things other than just towing a dirt bike) I put a hitch on the toyota matrix I bought one of my kids and towed my dirt bike around with it no problem. It'll hold a lot of gear in the back.
  12. I'm pretty sure I've seen a post somewhere from someone who's done this (on betarider.org?).
  13. Polisport has xtrainer plastics in 4 colors (white, red, black, flo yellow) on their web site now: https://www.polisport.com/en/off-road/products/replica-plastics/beta-plastics/enduro-plastics-kit---beta-x-trainer/?id=672&pid=12055
  14. Since you mentioned FI in the subject note that those don't use generic lines. I haven't seen the FI dirt bikes but all my FI street bikes have very specific fuel lines with very specific secure/quick release connectors.
