I'm still alive and still have the 93, just turned over 170k, needs a set of tires, and need to reseal the front of the engine, other than that it's as solid as a rock and rides like that as well.

it's really hard to drive without crawling all over it, my wife has a 2014 Ram 5.7 hemi, we got side by side at a light out in the middle of nowhere the other day, I got a smoky laggy start as I hadn't got the boost up yet when the light turned but still pulled the big hemi till 80mph then she drove around me.

I felt good about having a 3 truck lead until then, those darn new trucks are pretty quick.



Good to see you still around Darwin. I still have my brown truck even though it's going to give up it's drivetrain for a ext. Can short bed second gen. I've been daily driving the Excursion for months now. It needs the front suspension rebuilt and the AC hooked up but it's a nice truck. With the Covid crap, all the kids and the race cars I stay pretty busy anymore.

Hi. Fired up my first gen on Saturday. Let it idle for a bit, blew some smoke on my Ford then shut it down.

baled and loaded up 60 square bales of clover on the 93 yesterday for my granddaughters mini horse, to be fair the bales were mini also, I shortened them up so a 9 yr old girl could throw them...


on another note, I just ordered a bandsaw mill for my birthday, won't be here until the end of Aug.

Oh wow it’s been a while since I was on here. I’m still alive, but hitting the end of my rope. Trying to sell some stuff to get by, but that’s not going great so far. It’s weird how trucks in good shape with low miles are harder to move than trucks in poor shape it seems.

Busy ain’t the word for things lately! Last Saturday our little man Waylon was born. Had he stayed in a full 39 weeks he’d have been big. He was early at 35 weeks and still 6 1/2 pounds.

Darwin, sorry about a what....4 month late reply!?! I don’t have any street legal bikes as I stay off road. I have a ‘95 KDX200, ‘03 RM125 and ‘06 CRF100.

Blue Ridge parkway is something else for sure, only been on it once this year. WNC has blown up in recent years and even the parkway is a traffic jam at times.

How’s everybody else??

I’ve gotten to ride a bit this year actually. Borrowing my brother’s Ducati monster s4 to go along with the family. It’s a very forgiving bike, and is rather light, so it’s been a lot of fun. Last one was just dad and I where he complimented my riding.

He also did the interesting thing of mounting a good car tire on the back of his multistrada, and it’s surprised him how good it’s been.
