  1. Sorry for the long absence. Major illness in the family. Everything OK now....
  2. Fitted a front skid plate - which I had been waiting on since early April. Took less than 10mins to bolt it to the frame. I could have manufactured a nicer, more sturdy one in a week.
  3. And the same to you FF ! 🙂
  4. Got all my chores done earlier in the week (took a week off) and yesterday - boundary surveying some land we acquired. Colorado's searing hot weather finally broke yesterday with a good thunderstorm and some much needed rain. So today I'm gonna sit back, relax and enjoy the freshly mowed back yard ... from the hot tub... with a drink.... yet to be defined.
  5. CFMoto "seem" to have a lot of gadgets and gimmicks - probably to compensate for a lack of quality and poor reliability. But that's just my opinion having seen them close up. But I've not ridden one.
  6. You can let them sit or can't let then sit?
  7. Just wait until we are solely reliant on China for silicon semi-conductor manufacturing. The world is reliant on one company (TSMC) in Taiwan for a certain component. China may attempt to take ownership of TSMC - event Taiwan itself.

    I was born and raised and spent most of my life (yeah I know - sounds like the intro from Fresh Prince) in a country where it is very difficult to own a fire arm of any kind - unless a farmer (rodent control) or a member of a sports shooting club - and even then there are very strict rules with regular checks and inspections of how and where the gun(s) and ammunition is stored. As an American citizen (import from the UK), and a previous board member of our local shooting sports complex here in Colorado, I listened intently to the never ending debate on guns and gun controls. I agree that is the right of Americans to bear arms as described in the second amendment. I can't tell you why there are so many gun related deaths in our great country - when places like Switzerland has as high gun ownership as the US yet has very low gun related deaths. Some say it's a mental health issue. I don't believe America is any more mental than any other developed country - so I have concluded it is cultural. Nonetheless, here are some interesting statistics - sliced and diced from many perspectives - on gun related deaths in the US. https://usafacts.org/data/topics/security-safety/crime-and-justice/firearms/firearm-deaths/ I'm a data scientist - so I find data fascinating. I make no judgement. The second amendment is still needed.

    It's 96 deg here on the North Eastern Plains of Colorado. My snowboards are not happy.
  10. And one of the parts I ordered early April has finally been dispatched and is on its way to me.
  11. Family visiting from Florida and Denver.... We're playing hosts. Might play on the "escape vehicle".... I mean ATV.
  12. Still waiting for parts from Honda - back order, back order, back order...
