.060 over .... me like!! Those pistons are HUGE! Should be a stump-puller, for sure.
After getting some stupid offers for my Silverado, I've decided to just keep it & run it into the ground. What a colossal waste of money new vehicles are. I kick myself in the ass every time I think about it. What the hell was I thinking??? Proof that money clouds judgement - found that out the hard way. Sure would have loved to be driving something with an engine similar to Gene's though.
A little late to breakfast this morning. Went on a hellacious night time ATV ride with a buddy of mine & 7 others. Ended up getting home just before 4am. That's what happens when you rely on others for navigation. We had some other issues too - we'll just leave it at that - but that contributed to my late ( or early - depending on how you look at it
) arrival home through no fault of mine or my buddy's. I gotta get me one of those GPS deals I guess. I'll take a paper map any day of the week though - I'd have got a much better nights sleep if I had one! Was freezing cold, snowing like hell. I was soaked to the bone. Only had thin gloves on due to my normally excellent grip & thumb warmers, but a few miles of 40-50 mph wind chills with wet hands rendered those luxuries useless. Had to keep my visor up on my helmet so I could see where the hell I was going, so I took mile upon mile of snow, ice, below-zero wind-chills, & dust right in the eyes & face. Lost my best pair of winter gloves that I've had for 20 years (flew out of my shitty luggage carrier). But I made it home without breaking anything on me or the machine, so it was a good night.
Hopefully the weather cooperates & we can break the bikes out early this season. C'mon SPRING!!
