I build single family residential house and also have my brokers license and to put it into an example so you could understand if you are not effeected by it...

what ever your income is cut it by 1/2 to 2/3's and you will have an idea of how it effects those of us who are in housing construction. In some cases even much worse, Just about all of Sourthern Cali, Vages and Sarasota Florida have been hit the hardest with sale and prices dropping fast and foreclosure rates in those areas of unheard numbers. Than add into it the amount of houses in the construction phase and developments started before the crunch where property was bought at a premium and there are many builders gone belly up and lost everything of which i know 2 personally. Now along with the builders you have all the trades involved in building, excavating, concrete, framing, sheetrock, paint, roofing and siding and the list goes on. Now they have lost there bread and butter too.

Some houses are moving and February saw a 2.9% increase over January although 23% below Same time last year.

So the easy way to up it is if you make $100,000... try living on 40 or 50K now.. lol

That should give you an idea of how it has hit some people in the industry...

      The 2020 ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) Series, an AMA National Championship, season finale would take place at South of the Border MX (SOBMX) in Hamer, South Carolina. SOBMX would be the round where the 2020 season would come to a close after a lengthy season that once again saw Wienen Motorsports/Yamaha/Maxxis’ Chad Wienen and Phoenix Racing Honda/Maxxis/Elka’s Joel Hetrick locked in a championship points battle until the end.

      13 ATVs and dirt bikes impounded from N.J. wildlife area. Riders face list of charges.
      State officials charged several people with various violations and impounded their ATVs and dirt bikes last weekend from the Greenwood Forest Wildlife Management Area in Ocean County, authorities said.
      Police officers with the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation were investigating illegal off-road vehicle use in the management area on Saturday, July 25 when two ATV riders tried to flee, officials said.
      When officers caught up with them, they issued summonses for criminal obstruction, interference with the duties of a conservation police officer, and violations of wildlife management area use. The two ATVs were impounded, police said.
      The next day, a group of ATV and dirt bike riders from northern New Jersey drove past several “NO ATV” signs posted in the wildlife area known as “clay holes.”
      Clay holes, or “blue holes” are former gravel or sand mines filled with water. They are popular, although dangerous, destinations for teenagers and adults looking to beat the summer heat.
      Officers issued summonses to the riders for illegally operating off-road vehicles and for driving unregistered vehicles. They also wrote tickets for illegal swimming, possession of alcohol and entering a restricted area.
      In all, 13 ATVs and dirt bikes were impounded. The owners are facing fines starting at $274, and impound, towing and storage fees of at least $300, conservation police said.
      In a statement, police said “only registered, insured, street-legal vehicles are permitted in Wildlife Management Areas. Vehicles may only be operated on established roads and parking areas.”

      My wife has a well used 325 Trail Boss and recently she noticed there is a distinct rhythmic clicking or popping noise that sounds like its coming from the chain/ sprocket area. Increases with speed and happens in fwd or reverse.
      I jacked up the rear of the quad and rotated the tires and there is no sound when the drivetrain is unloaded. Any suggestions on what this could be or how to troubleshoot? Im new to 4-wheelers, so this might be something pretty simple but I just dont have much experience working with them.
      Would appreciate any help or suggestions

      August 23, 2009 - Princeton, MN:High Performance Design is proud to introduce their new Polaris RZR Differential Housing.These new housings are cast from 356 aged and heat treated aluminum. This alone would make them twice as strong as the die cast originals. They are a minimum of 30% thicker and at least twice as thick in the pinion to output areas. It is highly unlikely that these housings will
