  1. I like the Bagger Shield, You have two to chose from with one wind shield and only takes a couple of minutes to go from short to tall. And they seem to hold up well.
  2. I go with the leveling links and the 130 front tire because of the area where we ride, A lot of hills and turns . The two put together makes the cycle feel much lighter and handle much better. For me it takes it from going around turns with both hands to one hand in either direction. There are some that have tried it and dont like the feel at higher speeds. It does make the cycle feel more touchy. There are other things that can make the Venture feel like a tub to ride also. Tire inflation can be a big one. How much air in the rear shock, how the neck bearings are adjusted can make a night or
  3. July is getting close, If any of you are planning on coming and want to get a room in Viroqua you may want to look into it. They book up pretty fast around here in July. And please RSVP on the calendar and there is info for the motels on there. If you want to camp here at our place there is plenty of room our camp ground is open this year and in great shape. Its rustic, there will be clean porta potties to use. There are other nice campgrounds close by if you want water and electricity. Hope to see some names on the calendar.
  4. July will be here before we know it, I put some info for the motels on the calendar. Would be nice to see some RSVPs on the calendar. I know there are a few coming, So please RSVP.
  5. Have you drained the oil to make sure you are not getting coolant into the oil also. And have you seen any coolant on the floor or ground from the weep hole on the water pump, you may need to clean out the end of the small hose coming from the water pump sometimes they get plugged and wont let it drain out.
  6. After reading that, Most of my bad days were a walk in the park. Sure hope they can get some help and the virus will play it self out soon.
  7. This is a easy one for me, Remington 3006 BDL I have had it for 38 years. And was a few years old when I got it at the K and L sporting good store here in Viroqua. Can still see it there with all of the other guns and it just stood out and seemed to be calling out to me. Had the owner hand it to me and I put it up to my shoulder and it was the one. It fit me like it had been made just for me, It did need just a little work on the trigger pull. After that was done I am not sure you have to pull the trigger you just think it. I have put alot of deer meat in the freezer and helped get rid of some
  8. I looked up wire walker from the 1900s and I found one close to it once I figure out how to get the picture on here we can look at it.
  9. Well we dont have a yes I know what that is and I have used one. I have always thought it was built to lift and the handle was to guide it, The legs can be moved by pushing and pulling the handle or you can use the ring to move the legs, and note the spring it pulls the legs together. It would be small blocks of ice. Fence tool possible, but it would only hold the wire. Good thought, We will have to keep quessing until that person says we had one of those and this is what it does.
  10. My Dad would get tools to stump people, well he was stumped and never did get to find out what this was used for. I can remember the day he got it at a auction 49 years ago and him saying he had no idea what it was and wanted to see how long it would take to find out. I found it in a box of stuff the other day and thought time to have some fun with it and maybe someone out there may know what it is.
  11. If you are looking to free up floor space, Before I had a lift table or a jack I put a 6 foot piece of angle iron with 2 large eye bolts and mounted that to my roof truss, And used a come along or a small chain hoist. And have lifted many motor cycles, Only front or rear at a time. If you want to get the front and rear up in the air then I would use a jack and use it until I had it where I wanted it. I do have 2x10 trusses. You could beef up the truss if you have 2x4 built, Also has come in handy for lifting lots of other things also.
  12. I got started on mine and Sharons RSV a few days ago and when I put it up on the lift, I noticed that the fork seal on the right side fork was starting to leak and that the lower fork cover was hitting the fork. I thought that may have been bent after we hit the deer last year, But it was the fork. So tore it down and pulled the fork and put a straight edge on it and it is tweaked, So up to the shed and grab a pair of forks, Its good to pack rat parts. Some sanding and buffing on the lower forks, new seals ,oil and a year old pair of progressive springs the front end is done. Now to swi
