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 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.

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

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.

Looks great. Is it all done ?  Any more going on it ? Storage box for straps ? 

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.

      So we are almost a month into winter and I've been so busy working on my house that up until today, I didn't realize that we just haven;t gotten any real snow yet to warrant putting the plow on my grizzly. So that got me thinking, what are the latest plows out there and what ATV plows are the best? I've got 2 snow plows for my grizzly, a quadboss pile driver atv plow set up and a snowsport ATV plow. They are both a bit dated now and I tend to stick with the snowsport due to ease of use and I just like it so much. So if you have a plow on your ATV, please let us know what it is and post a picture with your atv/plow would be awesome. Would also like to know what you like and dislike about it.
      This is back a while when I did a write up on these 2 plows.... in 2009 I got the snowsport and in 2012 I got the quadboss.

      Hows evryone feel about blasting around in snow ? 
      I love it usually after all plowing is done ill drop the plow and just go lut and have fun. From drifting all over lol to packing snow trails in woods its fun , never been into snow mobiles ,  where we live its very rural and our roads seem like an afterthought when it comes to plowing lol , usually last to get cleared , so we will hit the back roads to powerlknes and such , we have several people around here with side by siedes ,and the usually hit the powerlines , pack the trails and then we hit them good fun ....Anybody else ?

      Does everyone run the tire pressure as stated on tires or perhaps a couple # below to soften the ride a little?
