Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

There is a GOT DANG COB WEB on my "daily" rider!!!! How wrong is that!? Been so long a spider lived and passed on, left a web to collect dust!

Woke up this morning thinking about quitting my job and and building a boat to live on. This is a sign!!! (Not a rational one but hey, it works)

It is of course raining and I am in serious debt, which also could be a sign. But think I am gonna go with the live on a boat and ride more.

Wut? Does sound like more fun. (Yes, would have to bring the bike ashore. hmmm, boatMbike.... )

at least the spider wasn't waiting to take a nibble out of you. Being broke sucks, thank god for HT's that run on fumes! Time to build a ShuttleBike? Maybe with retractable pontoons for land riding

~Came across this tip for cutting a slot in hose neatly:
Quick Tip - Splitting Rubber Tubing - YouTube

going to look into wrapping cables and wires in something.

Great link Killer. May I post that in http://motorbicycling.com/f36/diy-pa...ols-32245.html ?

Yer right, could always be worse. Still gonna get serious on the boat thing. Just so dang tired of working hard at hardly getting by. My plan is to continue with just that but at a much more leisurely pace. snork

"Wrote a note, said; "back in a minute" Bought a boat and sailed off in'it.." LOL, sounding good about now....

I'm going to give you a thing I had never seen before in a magazine, free boats. Wooden Boat magazine has a section at the end of their classified where I have seen boats go for free that would stun you. Like the 42' Chris Craft Constilation with 2 new 283 Grays Marine motors. It was East coast and I had no idea how to move it here. Last time I looked there was a 32 footer with 2 inline 6's....

Admittedly some of the boats are in rough shape but many just need an oil change, tune-up and fuel and off you go Google it up, you'll be happy you did.

Looked it up, '57 Adkins 34' with 2 194's, ready to go.

We split old surplus rubber hoses all the time in Auto Mechanics as rub proofing from friction and chattering worked great.. I think that a wondering slightly curve split work better. The hose will naturally stay shut better.

Oh, I won a nice "little" chopper tank on eBay for a not crazy price.

Should work well on the streched LA Cycles(Thai)BigMo/Morini bike I'm just about ready to start on

Awesome Dave, TY.

If ya ever run into a great deal, ya can tow purty easy.

List of canals in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Been trying for a Dutch sailing barge. What I wanna do is Fla and maybe close islands in the winter and North East US in the summer. Terrible for off shore but perfect boat-bumming" live-aboard's. Need room fer a shop!

Your right! Folks can't give em away in the winter.

That's a good tip Goat, I'll give the hose a slow twist through the jig.

Mmm, free boats... That canals link is cool too.

...you should not have done that. I never thought of being able to do a great deal of the trip to Idaho on connected waterways. I was thinking of either portage across Mexico at a narrow point or to Panama and go through the Canal(wonder what that costs?). Boats like that Adkin are very seaworthy but I think a cross country boat trip by river would be cool...at least as far as I could get

LOL, dont'cha love when a buddy plants a really, really dumb thought?

Cool part of inland sailing is bad storm, drive her up in the mud and open a beer and wait. Snork. Then the worst thing that happens is ya gotta jump in the mud and push her off ta get back underway.


The best, absolute best part of inland waterways, is like old world America Main st. Really fun to meet folks. Stores, restaurants and parks. (could be a bar or 3, I'm told)
