With the blessing of my wife (Yes, I admit to getting permission) I ordered and installed my Primitive armor.
:woohoo::woohoo:
Haha, nice! I know what you mean about asking permission, I have to do it carefully and with the right timing to get stuff for my FXT:Banane35:

Rallylights.com urethane

Ok boys.

Finally, got the package. 8 sheets of 18" by 24" 1/8" urethane. This will allow at least 2 flaps per sheet.

I have just completed the fronts. No pics yet of them on. Waiting for trail pic. However, here are 2 production pics.

Damn, I love making @#$% myself.:rock:

Sportster5

Just had my Sirius installed. Looks and sounds great.:rock:


This should keep the wife happy until I pay for the $3000 washer dryer we just bought.:shake:

Then I spend $2000 on a kickass system. :evilatyou:

FXT goes tree hunting

The annual tree hunt included my new FXT. I wrapped the tree to hopefully ensure that some needles remained on the tree when we got it home.

Perfect day to chop down our Christmas tree.

Oh, it was my daughters first Christmas tree hunt too.:icon_redface:

Pretty easy driving on hard packed snow and ice. However, I do tend to drive quite carefully when roads aren't perfect.

Ho Ho Ho
:rock:

Load warrior

The new year brings me a load warrior.

I sold my Sky box 16 and purchased a Load Warrior and locking bracket. The deal did not cost me a dollar or 83 cents American. :biggrin:

I'll post a pic on Thursday when it should be delivered.

Why a basket and not a box? One word. FLEXIBILITY

The cargo box just didn't hold enough of my crap. For example, Chariot (ie jogging stroller).

Like my forum god, Smash81, I intend to haul fire wood and a lot of other outdoor stuff. Like my mother-in-law.:biggrin:
