    I'm still annoyed that Honda killed off the XR line which does reveal my biases. My ideal would be an XR600 with modern suspension, fuel injection (water cooled too), strong subframe and a 5gal fuel...

    I faced a similar decision about four years ago. At that time I rode a Husky TE450. The Husky was fully street legal and had a lot of performance mods. The combo of a short stroke motor and a...

    This pattern of responses inevitably shows up on all Baofeng threads.

    Meanwhile, these radios continue to sell like crazy.

    They are a great value and mine have worked flawlessly.

    No question that a market exists for an updated Africa Twin. Just check out the Advrider forum. Folks have been hoping for this bike for years.

    But the competition is the big BMW and KTM...

    22lr is by far the most popular caliber and it remains scarce relative to others in my area. Key is that now something is always in stock in 22lr, even if it might not be my preferred choice.

    Having been burned twice with POS MB vehicles I won't be buying one of those again.

    I am sure that any Jeep in this category will be priced very competitively versus LR or MB. Expensive in...

    Your F150 is a great expo platform......keep it. Super reliable motor and tranny, strong frame, plenty of room and I would guess it is paid for.

    If you put $3-4k into a mild lift and a rear locker...

    Very glad to see some progress on this from Quigley.

    At some point in the next 5 or so years I will be in the market for a new 4x4 van. Based on the research I have done thus far, a Ford Transit...

    Great pic and LJ!

    Boy are you right about the MPG, or lack thereof, too.

    I am stunned at how fast our LJ drinks gas. And with a small to modest sized gas tank too!

    My shooting objectives are similar to yours, minus the lousy weather.

    If I were to cover it all with one 22lr and one shotgun, I would go with a 12ga remington 870 wingmaster and a Henry 22lr...

    Go with a late model E350. Shorter wheelbase and more robust frame and body than GM.

    The V10 is an excellent motor. Very reliable and plenty of power. Lousy MPG is the only downside, but you...

    That is a very nice looking rig.

    And very reasonably priced versus comparables in that high end category.

    Good luck with the sale.

    Just curious, specifically what parts are you waiting for?

    I have a 2010 outback that has been a stellar car, with great MPG. But I am not aware of much (any?) mod potential for recent model year...

    I like what Jeep is trying to do with both the Cherokee and the Renegade. They are aimed at the Outback buyer base and I think that Jeep can win market share in that segment. Of course the off road...
