I'm ready, bring on the mud, all my old motocross racing skills are coming back to me. Actually just helping my daughter assemble them for my grandsons

--Hey Carl, if you hear your family discussing an "intervention", maybe you better run for it? :)

My family goes out of it's way to pretend I don't exist, heavy into denial.

A co-worker gave me this one for fixing his big Yamaha ATV that rolled down a cliff.

At the time the rear shock was broken, among other things. Since then I hit an auger in the field and broke the rear axle. So now it has a narrower rear axle and rear wheels from a Snapper lawnmower because the bolt pattern was not the same and neither was the threads on the new axle so I couldn't swap the hubs.

The chain was rubbing the frame so I removed the rear shock and installed a turn buckle which creates a bumpy ride.

The day I got it running. I had a bungee cord holding it together and a piece of threaded rod.
