  1. I'm 52 and still ride, but on the street. Had dual sport bike up until 2011. My work hours are killing my riding time. Figured I'd get a street bike so I can ride at night. Been seriously looking into getting another dual sport. Was going to get an MX bike, but the days the tracks have open practice I'm never off. My friend started racing mx when he turned 47 and now at 53 he is a totally hard core rider.
  2. Well, this will be an interesting year. Looks like there will be a new champ. No one rider is dominating. I like to see several winners. Riders that kill it one week finish back of the pack next week, Baggett.

    Looking for riders around Cumberland County, NJ

    Good to keep it private. Don't want the environmentalists to know about it.

    Field of Dreams isn't a bad place for the price considering in most townships if you get caught riding illegally the fines are over $1,000 at least. Unfortunately you're about 30 years too late for free riding.

    Yamaha’s A1 Sweep

    I know it's waaaay to early, but I hope this season there aren't one or two riders dominating. It would be nice to see several riders all vying for the championship at the end. Which will be decided in Met Life Stadium baby!
  6. My friend got a 1992 full sized Chevy truck with V-6, two wheel drive, from a neighbor that died for $500. Body wasn't bad, had a rebuilt motor and transmission. All he needed to do was a major tune up. He decided to make it nicer than what it was although, like you, he doesn't use it much. He's already dumped thousands into the truck and it's like peeling back an onion, he finds more and more work to be down. Could of bought a newer, used Toyota. I like new cars so I would buy a newer Tacoma even if it had high mileage. Dodges always seem to be money pits with low resale values.
  7. I've been just looking for now at local dealers for my next small SUV and a lot of them have numerous 2018 models still on the lot. I'm thinking I might be able to get a sweet deal on a leftover. One Mazda dealer has two brand new 2017 CX 5s. I like the CX 5 and RAV 4.
  8. I like your set up. I've been leaning toward a Camry or Mazda 6 as my next car which both can get hitches for. With my small 4' x 6' utility trailer and one bike should be no problem.

    Dungey’s real father

    I wonder how much Bob Ross' paintings would fetch on the auction block? I have a feeling art snobs wouldn't care much for his paintings, but come on, Andy Warhol's painting of Campbell's soup cans is art?
  10. I work in a supermarket, but I started when the union was strong and you were able to make a living. We would get raises twice a year and if the managers like you, you would get merit raises. If you were to get hired today you better have a second and third job to make ends meet. I'm lucky that my brother and I own a house and split costs so I'm not struggling. The worst part is I would love to get an MX bike, but with my work schedule I'm always working weekends, the days when the local tracks have open practices.

    CRAFTSMAN tools new home...LOWE'S!!

    The K-Mart that is still in business by me sells Craftsman. All my tools are Craftsman. So far my Made In China tools have been reliable.
  12. One of my friends used the Auto train for his mini van he liked it. He was down in Florida for two weeks and the price of the train off set rental car fees. I drove down to the Keys from NJ in a Honda Fit and the ride is BORING. Riding a 250 seems like it would be fun, but a challenge. One of the biggest things I think about when taking my bike on long rides is what to do if I get a flat.

    Anybody give a shit Deano got the boot?

    Unfortunately this sport is like every professional sport, you have a short shelf life. I honestly can't see him battling for a championship, but being more of a fil in rider. The Doug Flutie of motocross.
  14. I had no problem for months reading the forums using my iPad. then all of a sudden I can't get on the Forums section. When I do click on a subject after a couple of seconds it says something along the line of lost host, an error occurred. The only way I can read anything in the forums is I have to click on my notifications which takes me to the forum, but the only way I can read other subjects is I have to click on the "Unread Content" button. And that only lets me see unread topics, nothing else. I have no problem on any other forum. Like I said it worked for months before then all of a sudden it stopped. To go on the forums and read other topics I have to use my brother's desk top which I'm using now. I assume it has to do with the iPad itself(?)

    Ocean county power sports

    I go there all the time for years and never had a problem. An oil change and cleaning the air filter seems like a DIY project. Not that hard to do.
