It's a Japanese Harley! Nice looking bike Smitty. Ought to serve you well!

It's been wicked winy here too. Some house shaking gusts now & then.


I'd love to have an Electric Focus, but man - man, the price is crayzee! I don't know why they are getting so much for any of the electric cars, other than the feds kick in $7,500 so they raise the price $7,500 to get the "free money". If they want to sell electric cars they need to bring the prices down.

Well said. And people don't believe that government money raises the price of things.

My mothers husband has an electric Escape as a company car and loves it. He's got well over 100k on it and only normal service(brakes, front end, etc) but nothing to do with the hybrid system.

He reports high 40 mpg of mostly highway driving.

well its been cool here all weeek also, rain, scateered snow showers. Made trip down to Chevrys in Plymouth got some nut coal. Got 3.3 tons(5 scoops). Glad i didn't get the 6th scoop. What i got fills coal bin right to the top edge. Frames arre for the corrugated stell i have to cover the bin. Hinges on back side, still need to make a prop brace while getting coal out. Now i am burning this to see how good it is. will let yea all know.

Going to add another 4 feet width to bin, fill thatsection with pea coal. will get that later this summer.

Smitty like the ride, always looked at the Yamaha, but never got one. Someday.

Thanks guys. 8-)

Took it for a brief ride to the bank, & to the gas station - only 12 miles round trip. Was 40° and I had no gloves & I wore the half-helmet. My hands were not working when I got back .... BRRR! But man this thing is just as comfortable going down our potholed roads as sitting on the couch. Suspension is AWESOME! Seat is comfy & that little backrest is the best invention ever! As far as those twin 4" + pistons go, you wouldn't know it weighs 800+ lbs. You don't have to stay in any gear for more than a second. It's just as happy short-shifting as it is redlining. There's over 100 ft.lbs. of torque at the rear wheel from about 1,800 rpm all the way to redline. 8-) I romped on it leaving the house so my neighbors could hear it, and I was up to 80 in about 3 seconds - she hauls nicely! The handling was a bit goofy due to the worn out rear. It's lost it's formerly round profile & become flat in the middle. The seller stated it was only 700 miles young .... but I think somebody did a few heaters with it. Not like it's hard to do with 125 ft.lbs. at the wheel. :D

Just figures we go from 80° days down to a freeze warning the minute it got here. :roll:

But a Hyundai isn't an Escape laden down with HVAC tools and supplies. ;)

The regular 4 cyl Escape gets about half that in combined driving. And the V6 is worse!

I have a 2008 Escape 4 cyl., my company vehicle. 130,000 miles and it won't die. Totally inappropriate for my job. Which reminds me-it's overdue again for an oil change. :o But trying to explain to corporate bean counters why a station wagon isn't appropriate for what I do is like talking to a wall, so I just gave up. I think the milk crate police are outside with flashlights.
