Garrett,

Are they going to do one for you, or are you going to have some made and sell them? The aux tanks I have seen plumb into the vent of the main tank, and as fuel is pumped out of the main tank it is sucked from the aux tank into the main tank.

Another white out....

woke up to snow again today, then the wind picked up. It even caught the weather folks off guard, no regular warnings like usual. Parts of I35 and I80 shut down, schools let out early.

I asked my son how many snow/ice days he has been out this year, he replied "six" with three early outs. My stars I don't believe I had six snow days total during my school years in this same area and I am including K through 12. I don't think I had even one in High School and he goes to the same school I did. Global warming my @ss.... With make up days, he should be done by July 4th.

Enjoy your riding guys.... and be safe, cars and trucks are not necessarily expecting you to be out there ( remember the "I didn't see him/her").

You hanging in there Moybin?

Help is on the way

As you may have seen on the news, it's been very cold in Iowa, so cold in fact that
we have borrowed a Norwegian Icebreaker from Minnesota to unclog the
Mississippi starting over near Davenport and working it's way north.

Here is the first picture of it as it begins the hard work required to break up the ice.

I bet Mr Winky goes into hibernation in that environment...!!
