my apologies!

i can't remember who i was talking to or the thread it was in, but discussing whether the steering wheel nut was 23mm or 22mm and i was sure it was 23mm. well, i am wrong, i do not have a 22mm in my set just 21 and 23 thats why i thought it was 23 because thats what i use!

as always im happy to be wrong! was just sure of this one ha

on that note, I'm going back outside to enjoy some sun. Summertime downunder for the win

Hope you get sun burn.

Just kidding. It's cold here and the flu is running a mock in the US. So any type of reference to warm nice weather makes me envious right now.

Good to know. So this is with the 93-95 models or just the touring models?
I'm looking into expanding the collection with a possible touring.

lol well just decided to come back in. my iPhone tells me its 23 degrees celcius in my town, but i have no idea where that reading is taken, it seems hotter. (translates to 74F according to my Mac) My wall clock in the Lounge says its 27C (80F) right now, so that would mean about 29C (84F) outside, that sounds about right. Good for the Vitamin K levels or whatever it is you get from the sun lol

this is all BMWs that i have worked on, E34 E36 E30 E28 E46 think thats about it.

if any of you want to impulse book flights down here i got a spare room LOL

I ski.



So that's the only reason time I even like this time of year.
But I lived in Atlanta too long and got used to nicer weather. (plus I'm old )
So unless I'm barreling down a double diamond in Park city, Vail, or Vancouver.

I'd rather be some where warm.

Btw now I made the connection (snowsled7 = Polaris M7) or is that a different brand... (I'm not up on snowmobiles like i used too)

I hear you. I haven't hit the slopes in a few years. Last time I was out some guy in front of me had a yard sale on the trail and clipped me from behind.

That's all I remember except for the beautiful nurse who's girls were slightly exposed through her shirt as she was changing my head bandage. Nothing being awaken by a nice set softly rubbing your nose.

Slopes: sadly no

TIDF: Yes everyday and Atl has plenty willing young ladies too (women to men ratio 13 to 1)

I used to ski too, three years a HS letterman and one trip to state finals. Then I ski-bummed at A-Basin in CO for a year.

Then I decided the freedom the sled provided was a whole lot better than lift lines, crowded parking lots, slopes, eating areas etc etc. In the mountains you can go places on the sled that 99.9% of the world will never see. The fact that is has a power to wieght ratio of a Bugatti Veyron has not influenced my decision either

Arctic Cat is currently my chosen brand. I am looking to upgrade to a 1000 cc machine with nearly 200 hp


Sorry for the hi-jack Andy. It is snowing and I get a little wierd

With nearly 200 hp it could tow the Bimmer! I'd like to try one someday... It never snows here and when it does it doesn't last.

There is only one thing I have enjoyed more (with my clothes on) than sledding and that was Porsche Club track days. Racing takes a bit more $$$$ and the closest track is at least a 5-6 hr drive. The mountains however, are right outside my door

The sleds ride behind the Expedition, not very fancy but functional, durable and capable. In fact the two sleds and trailer are probably worth double what the truck is, priorities you know.

I did drivers ed for 5 years, first in an '86 944 Turbo, later in an '89 928 GT. The 944 recieved many mods over the years, it was incredibly quick. The 928 had just suspension, wheels/tires, and big brakes. I lived just 30 miles from BIR but really loved the weekends at Road America... good times!

Thats amazing! Defntely interesting. 928s are cow. Big front v8, without the extra power. Weight distribution wasnt porsche like at all.
The 944 is a serious machine. Any pictures of it?

Glad you finally got your license

Just kiddin` witcha

I'm envious of the part of the country you live in. I traveled through Colorado in 82. Beautiful country. I used to be a dirt bike fanatic but have a bum knee so those days are over. I wonder if I could tolerate a snow sled like you have .... hmmmm .... Oh well, rarely get much snow here so I don't have to worry about that. Four wheelers just seem to slow for me to want one of them.

Ooops. Thread jacking. Sorry Andy.

I fully admit that I am not motorcycle guy. I have had a few dirt bikes, they always seem to try and kill me. Sledding is more of a low impact sport, ie; when you fall into a couple of feet of fresh snow it is more fun than pain Lots of people think you just sit and throttle it, in deep snow it is a wrestling match with a 500lb monster, really good exercise! Most of all, winter in the mtns is just magical. I ought to get my posterior off the couch and ride...

The 928 was one of my all time favorite cars. With the rear trans, and alum V8, hood and front fenders, it is actually perfectly balanced. The '89 GT version I had was one of about 50 in the states. They came with hotter cams, higher redline, lower rear gears, factory rolled fenders. I ran 17x9,10 wheels, big red brakes and a bilstein/eibach spring set developed for the car. Comfortable, plenty fast and, with the rear muffler bypass it sounded sweet!

The 44T was a rocket, full on track suspension 800lb.in front springs MAF/chipped, it would redline at 165 on the long straights. It wieghed about 2800 lbs, had the facotry LSD with cooler, added seats, harnesses.... I do long for another. Porsche, there is no substitute.

No pics... lost in the divorce LOL. I still have the autocross trophy form one season though, 4th place in points. Funny thing was, I never autocrossed it
