We used to have a 3 wheeler. Thing was fun to tool around on. But it had a solid fork and my uncles bro took a jump and landed front first. Bent the forks in half and rolled over.

Well, I hope Saturday went well down there......here's what I was stuck doing today....we got about 5" total and it was dry so it drifted up to about 10-12" across the field, lots offun while thinking about Pro trees, 60' times and how NOS cars will eternally have to out 330 everything on the planet, except the space shuttle.

Well, I am just happy to see snow on the ground.......I grew up in Maine, so qit your whining about 7 feet of snow. I remember one year we had 11 feet and another we got over 13 feet. Plenty of late night plow jobs. I'd ride with pop until I'd puke and then he'd finish up with the truck smelling worse than burnt gear lube.

Ha ha.......I know. I guess that's why the alcoholism is so high in the snow belt.

It has been so long since I HAVE seen snow piled that high. It was funny, last season when I made it up to Norwalk, I could see the telltales signs of how people live in the WAY up north, vs how people survive the seasons in the south. Fresh cut hardwood already stacked by mid summer so it could seasoned and be ready for winter, camper shells setting on saw horses waiting for winter, and the old rusted out pickup truck with a flat wood bed stacked with cinder blocks and a plow mounted just waiting to be revived in the fall for winter service, kind of like the reverse of getting a race car ready for the season!!!!

Just think, all them bastards are getting ready to rack up season points tomorrow, and we're b!tching about snow!

Hey nice 200X i had a 85 200X years ago,then i bought a 86 350X off my brother.My last 3 wheeler was a 85 250R,it was fast but i liked the 350X the best out of the 3.I live in Northeast,Ohio and we must have close to 18 inches of snow and 4 foot drifts.I was driving home this evening on a state highway and 5 snowmobiles pull out in front of me.They were driving down the road like it was a field.I used to ride my 350X in the cold and snow but now i hate the cold,getting old i guess.

Later Mark.

I've got an 85 also, but left that one in the basement for this round of playing. The 86 is a world apart from the 85.....and I figured out that that way I'd only have clean one machine!!!

The only thing that's really the same on an 86 as an 85 are the front ends, everything else is a different animal. Different motor frame rear axle and plastics.
