Default It Was A Gorgeous Day

Man, today was great. 70* weather. I had to take the t-tops out and go cruising. I also spotted a couple of nice rides around town today too. There was a black LS1 WS6 riding around with the t-tops out and also some older guy in a maroon C4 Vette. Yesterday was sort of decent. I saw a 30th Anniversay SS (white/orange stripes) with some polished or chrome Z06's on it, at KFC. Anyone else take advantage of this beautiful day?

Yeah, it was pretty close to 70*. Atleast that's what my computer said on the Vista Sidebar. I drive my car in the snow anyways, so I didn't mind driving through puddles. It was just nice to take the t-tops out for the first time in it.

Same here, took my 4wheeler out and made some jumps with the huge snow mounds in my front yard. Didn't think about making a landing ramp and just about snapped my wrist on the landing

Today was Awsome. Everyone had thier toys out and the bikes were everywhere. Got to play around with a couple bikes, vr-4 stealth and a srt4 today. I also saw a C5 and a C6 at the car wash. I had the T-tops out all day. It was 60+ up to about 67. (terre Haute IN).

Yeah, I was hoping to get a couple races in, but didn't get a chance. I tried to get lined up with a friend's 2000 GT, but he never wants to, for some reason. I was also always going the opposite way of the C4 Vette I kept seeing. I doubt the guy would've raced anyways. I also think it was just an L98 instead of an LT1 too. Then, I missed an opportunity with an LS1 GTO. Oh well, maybe the next beautiful day.

Ha yeah it kind of sucked where I live theres a ton of corn fields so I just kinda followed the snowmobile trails and they were pretty tore up after I got done and full of ruts. We have a few jumps out here but since they need to be built up occasionaly the sleds from this winter have really flattend them out and since I hit them going like 50mph or 4th gear or so I really did not want to take a chance and jump the quad.

What kind of 4wheeler do you have?

I know its late in the year but if you tore the **** out of the trails that members of your local snowmobile club worked hard to get in shape that's pretty inconsiderate.

Its not actual snowmobile trails. They have there own paths like along sides of the roads and what not and I dont go on those. We have trails out here that is basicly private property and farmland which has nothing to do with the clubs out here. I know where those trails are and yeah I agree I would not do that. I stick with the paths I always on on that I personally dont think sleds should be on since its not sled friendly but a few guys ride it but really shouldent. All of out local snowmobile club trails I stay off of since its not friendly to me nor them if I did tear them up I was riding on trails/propety that has nothing to do with the clubs when I said trails I meant just I follwed some sled paths I found

Had it out yesterday. Took out of Bradley in peoria with the t-tops out. Finally had one good day at least. Then I get home and the car won't go into reverse (rmvb th350 never wants to) finally started backing up and low and behold about 1 quart of tranny fluid laying on the ground. I then proceeded to put the T/A on jackstands with someone in the car holding the brake on in reverse to see tranny fluid spewing out of the top of the rear drivers side of the Tranny.

I think it's going to take a little more then my knowledge to fix this one. I wanted to get the gear checked in the 12 bolt anyway because of gear whine so it looks like its going to be looked at sooner then I expected.

I think we hit low to mid 50s here in Indy. It was awesome. I got my '99 out for a bit of travel. It was sure to remind me that the trans is gonna need addressed this summer/fall...

What kind of 4wheeler do you have?
Its just a lil suzuki ltz250. I wanna sell it this summer, its way to slow for me. It was my first 4wheeler, and have had absolutely no problems with it. And I have put that thing through hell haha. I wanna get either a yfz450 or a ltz400. What kind do you got?
