    Transit or Boxvan?

    I am not in the market for either right now, BUT I can relate to your reasoning for wanting an enclosed vehicle to transport bike, gear, etc. I ride with a buddy that has an extended E-250 and I'm envious every time he rolls up and has his gear hung up, tool box loaded, usually 2 bikes strapped down, power washer ready to wash with 15 gallons of H2O, sleep quarters (small but effective) if needed, etc. It's like he put wheels under his garage and drove it to the track. The one thing i don't like about his is the white pedophile color haha. Good luck with your choice, but if i had to share my opinion i'd go with the transit for ease of driving, parking, fuel mileage etc., but i'm sure you'll loose out on a good amount of space. Post some pics of your setup when the time comes.

    Hey Bud, You posted this question in the wrong section...this is under the PWC setction of TT. Maybe the moderator can help you relocate it to the dirtbike sections. If not try reposting. Good luck

    Vinyl wrap?

    Soapy water / Windex is your friend! I've had luck soaking down the panel and placing the decal straight upon it (the wetter the better (that's what she said)!). This will allow you to "float" it into position and once you're happy, start from the center and squeegee the moisture from between it and the panel. That's pretty much it in my book. Pic is of my newest #'s. Good luck.

    Riding to deal with stresses. Who else is with me?

    Rode this past Sunday for this exact reason. 2 kids under the age of 2-1/2, single income household while my wife stays home with them, working 50-60 hours a week...top that off with the stresses at work and you have a recipe for disaster that only hobbies like riding can remedy. Even though riding conditions this weekend were sub-par with wet/rutty conditions I still recited the phrase..."a bad day of riding is better than a good day at work," about a dozen or so times.
