  1. I have always been into american vehicles, currently have a z06 corvette,and a dodge ram pickup as my daily driver, my daughter has a 2000 camaro Z28, and my wife owns an Avalanche. We just bought my daughter a late model Toyota 4 runner for winter driving and I have to say, I'm impressed. Its our first Japanese vehicle. It makes my wifes Avalanche feel like junk in comparison. Its tight, doesn't make a sound, it handles great, great seats, great stereo, etc, Oh what a feeling, LOL. For the price we paid for a used 4 runner we could have bought a new Trail Blazer, I'm glad we didn't, this truck rocks.

    Thomaston dam?

    Just letting you guys know that the rangers are really cracking down on unregistered bikes. I was there Friday and for the first time in the 5 years I have been going there they were actually kicking people out. I'm registered, but keep my plates for me and my daughters bike in my truck. The ranger made me put the plates on the bike. I also had a conversation with him and he said if you are registered in New York you can ride there. If your registered in Mass you cannot ride there, he kicked a guy out with Mass plates as he was driving in. I have run into rangers there before and there were always friendly, this guy was really being an A hole. He also told me you have to have to be wearing all safety equipment including boots and chest protectors. To Eastboundanddown He said New York atv plates are OK.

    Hey are there any VETS from Bridgehampton, Long Island

    Hey CRF450RDR Not Stock cars, on the inside of the oval they had a scrambles track. Do you remember some of the great riders that used to practice at exit 52, Sonny Defeo from Ghost Motorcycles, Barry Higgins? There was also another rider who owned Motocross Specialties, can't remember his name. His dealership was located on the Sunrise Highway, one of the first Maico dealers in Long Island, man, he was fast. Did you ever ride in Brooklyn at Gerritsen beach or off the Belt parkway?

    Hey are there any VETS from Bridgehampton, Long Island

    I raced at Bridgehampton in the mid 70s, yeah I'm old. I also raced at the freeport raceway, I won trophys at both places. I used to race for King Motorcycles in Brooklyn. Did any of you guys ride at Exit 52 off the long Island Expressway, also exit 48?? Those were the days, we also had some great riding spots in Brooklyn.

    Thunder on the Tundra

    First off, let me say, I have always been an american car guy, except for some italian, and geman exotic sportscars I have had through the years. We currently own a 2003 Chevy Avalanche, 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, 2002 Zo6 Corvette, and my daughter has a pristine 99 Camaro Z28. Since the Z28 is useless in the winter we decided to buy another vehicle, a 2003 Toyota 4runner. All I gotta is WOW, this truck rocks, everything about it says quality, the ride is so compliant compared to the Avalanche and Ram, the way the doors close, not a single rattle on the worst of roads. The steering is so tight, I find myself speeding on twisty roads which I could never do in both our trucks. I can't believe I am saying this, that new Tundra looks really tempting.

    the wife says its got to go...

    Some great posts here. Also been married 20+ years. The success to a great marrage. Females must realise that boys are like babies, and need there toys. Out of all my friends, I'm the only one still married. Thats because, she understands my hobby makes me happy, and would never try to take it away from me. For you guys that are single with girlfriends, if they don't understand that, get rid of them.

    How many miles will an F150 go

    The place I work for has a 98 ford work truck, V6 with 270,000 miles on it. Original tranny, doesn't use any oil, AC blows ice cold, and this truck is NOT maintained.
