Hey pal.  Glad to hear your enjoying the weather and the bike.   That sucks about the tire but that’s the price we pay for hanging in the woods.  The bikes run so nice in the cooler weather.  So many people are commenting about how harbor freight is getting better with there stuff.  There is a topic floating around about a $50 dollar winch that’s holding up pretty good.  The fluid thing however sucks.  But it is what it is I guess. Anyway ride safe !

I bought a grinder from there this past summer and ran the crap out of it to restore this 5 by 8 trailer.

Looks great !  It looks like you removed the expanded metal and replaced with wood?  How was the wiring ?

I need to do that to my trailer. The one I have just flops in the breeze when it's empty. But tractor supply is what it is. I'll need to add a v in the front for stability as well. Spring welding for me.

I replaced the wiring and lights with LED lights. Picked up the kit at an auto store. Old lights were dim and wiring was damaged.

That is not wood, it is HDPE plastic sheet cut into strips. I got it for free at my former job. The grating on the floor was shot and broken in several places. I cut and ground off all the welds and repainted the frame.

Been done, did it over the summer. Its a 5 X 8 so it only holds one machine and not practical to have a storage box. I keep the straps and towing gear in the vehicle.

My other trailer is a triton which holds two machines, the deck is flat, so it cannot have a storage box either.

      Advice/recommendation on a set of lite rear UTV tires 26x11-12 needed for mainly very soft deep sand 65%, 15% gravel rd., 10% hard pack,  5% paved roads. 5% mud. All the reviews mention mainly mud lites, and very little sand lite tire brands! Looking for a tire that's lite but will dig well, reducing motor clutch overworking while slipping/spinning in lite sand. Appreciate any advice, Thanks, Steve

      I was able to get out for some tracking in-between storms ... we have lots of deep powder and on this ride, it was pretty windy ... of course, it usually is on these ridge tops. It was nice & cool too. The day started of at -7F (-21c) and stayed pretty nippy all day long.
      Hope you enjoy the video !!!

      Been cutting down all the pine trees on my land and saving the oak and hickory trees while making cool twisty trails to beat around on.  Still a lot more work to be done.

      My machine sticks in reverse until it is completely warmed up and then it shifts perfectly once it is completely warm. I have to literally yank up on the shifter to get it out of reverse. It will shift up and down fine in the forward gears just not reverse. It's a 2005 Honda Foreman TRX500FM5. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I tried searching it but didn't come up with anything.
      Thanks in advance.
      Cheers Don.
