Looking good RacerX... nothing like tinkering in the workshop to help relieve the stress of life's issues. 

With snow in the forecast, I build a snow plow attachment for the front of the quad.  I designed and cut all the metal, and had my son come down weld it together.  Problem is I was so tired from working on it most of the weekend, that when it snowed late Sunday night... I just said screw it... Mother Nature put it there and damn it she can take it away too...

This is the reason I'll buy a clapped out POS and rebuild it over the winter months. 

Momma not knowing the price of a new bike said why don't you sell you bike and treat yourself to a new one, one that you don't have to work on...  I politely replied I'm not sure you understand the price tag on a new bike... but I'll look into it...  I may be selling a previous winter project a 91 KDX 200, the current project, 2002 Polaris Xplorer 400 (two stroke) and my mighty KTM 380...  (Notice a pattern with my toys... all asmokers).  Even with all of that at the price I'm asking, a new KTM 300 is still quite a few more $$$$.  But since she mentioned it...  I'll be happy to look into it...
