    squisher replied to a thread Motorcycling. in The Rec Room
    Ha. Thanks. I road a lot of dirt when I was younger and have resisted the urge as I can still taste the dirt. But now that I've been out on even a few small jaunts I wonder why I ever gave it up. I learned to ride in gravel pits, so you learned how to make a bike hook up or you weren't climbing anything. I'll be honest I was wanting to start wheeling my cbr streetbike and I was like I bet I could buy a dirtbike to practice on for less then the cost of one f-ck up on the cbr. Lol. Also it extends my riding season a bit more although it's still pretty much had here. Frigging cold out. I've got a lot of my old moto gear still so I'm decently suited up. Need arm guards and some shin/knee guards still though. I almost talked myself into a husky tc510. A beautiful lunatic machine but close to twice what I picked up this old yammy for. This wr is no slouch by any means. Doesn't seem over the top fast to me though, I think from having the sportbike. Still in the baby steps stages though and definetly not riding it to its full potential. Not looking to get busted up. But I guess no one is. Lol. I can ride from my home to the main riding area in my locale. Where the local club maintains trails and holds races. Near endless exploring to be had. Yah, I'm stoked!

    I was curious so i double checked this 'featured ad' I always come across and it's for a second hand 2018 with 1700k at 20,999. Not as widespread as I thought: 2018 Ural Baikal LE, only 1720km. Only 45 produced world wide, only 5 in Canada.

    I'm not concerned. I still believe it'll all come together last minute. But rotating strikes means it's one day here and one day at another mill etc etc. I don't believe our union has been on strike since the early 90's.

    I never once milled with a 46/460 sized saw. Milling with a 66 seemed slow as f-ck. IMO you will burn up a 46 milling with the bar lengths you mention on it. Or you might shoot yourself first out of desperation/boredom.

    Impressive none of my boots have ever lasted that long and it was the wet that always seemed to destroy the leathers. 2-3 years tops before a resole and depending on condition that pair would be rotated to spares and a new pair bought anyways. My wife made me finally throw out a bunch of pairs of old boots this year that I'd been dragging around for well decades some of them. Lol.

    It is. Just contract time. So the union threatens striking as a negotiating tactic. It's all good/normal. I was just joking around with my supervisor, we had a good chuckle over it. I just caught up on your job development. Geez man I hope it's alright for you? Couldn't glean to many details but suffering fools takes the fun out of most anything.

    We are getting riled up over here. Might be rotating strike soon! Gonna show up with a burn barrel and a pitchfork if I end up on the line. Lol. And a bottle of hootch. Kick it old school. Already told my supervisor I'd bash his truck with my sign(or pitchfork) if he was gonna cross the line! Funny thing is if we have a rotating strike it won't be on weekends so won't affect me. And also the more days they strike the longer my weekend shift will run this winter, usually it comes off for a few months each winter based on veneer supply and market availability. So less weekday shifts will equal more veneer available to be dried by the weekend crew!

    I went from a 66 to a 880 on my Alaskan mill and never had to go back to the 66/660. The 880 was a massive satisfying step up from the 66 as I recall.

    Well it's a compromise between wearing lace up leathers which are nicer for support vs having dry feet. Also soaking leather boots right through everyday you'd better have a hell of a drying system to even hope to start the day off with dry boots. And when you start to soak and dry(heat) leather boots everyday day in and out you drastically shorten their lifespan. So to most that is a consideration too.

    I guess you could fatten it up a bit but I was like Stig. If a saw is setup it runs proper and that's that. You should be able to hear and feel that it's running right and checking the plug periodically should confirm that.

    I never found them exceptionally heavy and yes the decision on the coast was either wear them or have wet feet. Even the half and halfs were not near as water proof as the orange rubbers. It was probably the ones that Stig hates that I recall as the upscale ones. Nokian was the name I think? Better fit and superior support to the cheap ass Vikings. You could wear your $500 leather vibergs and have wet feet and destroy them throughout the winter or you could have dry feet with less support and use some cheap ass rubber boots for the winter and really stretch out the life of your leathers. Many people chose half and halfs. Leather uppers but with rubber lowers but the one pair I tried(vibergs of course) cut my feet up badly where the leather was stitched to the rubber. No amount of sock/liner juggling solved it for me and I swore them off and gave that one pair away to a co-worker.
