    cmoto 500

    Went to town today for an electric 3500lb winch. Seems the wet got to it this winter. Went to harbor freight as I needed some other shop equipment. Was passing by the bike shop, was like a magnet pulling on me. The place had more toys than I had ever seen in the lot. Must have unloaded a freighter.

    I was looking at the sxs's and my eye caught a used one. 2016 with 86mi on it. It followed me home. Was equipped with windshield, winch, top cover and hitch. Is a decent shade of orange and nice wheels.

    Was a bit shy of buying a Chinese knockoff. I have bought from this place a few times and have not been disappointed. I know Chinese had some electrical issues in the past and I asked about them. I know that they wouldn't be selling them if they had issues, good way to loose customers in the long run.

    I got to thinking about what I thinking about the Chinese imports. Then it occurred to me back in the 60's when the Japanese market opened up with the transistor radio and Honda 50's. Then it was Taiwan, hong kong, and on and on it goes. So, now I have one, lol. Only thing I notice is getting in and out is a squeeze. Once sitting it is comfortable and has good leg room. I like the full windshield, roof and has good power. Already has horn, mirrors and a plate on it. Just need blinkers and it will be street legal.
    They are on the way.

    How's the diet going Plumb?
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I have to get away from here. I say no I am not hungry and here comes a plate. I know they mean well, but a vacation from here I need desperately. Will see how some time in the desert getting some good exercise will do.

    I was only teasing you Plumb, since you mentioned having to squeeze in a bit...

    If I get any bigger, I'm going to have to buy a different car. I can barely get in that thing the last couple years...

    Yes we can here. A lot os small cities are excpting them on the streets. I think it has a bigger footprint than those little two place bug squashers you see on the highway.

    This one already has a plate on it. It comes with a horn and mirrors and is 50inches wide. All I need is blinkers and I have them on the way.

    I have heard that Nevada is another tolerant state permitting road use for UTVs in communities with populations under 40,000.
    I see them all the time & usually operated responsibly as go from back roads to the bar. Do not recall any turn signal, horn, windshield or seat belt requirements. Gimbaled beer holders seem to be the most common safety equipment. drinkholder.jpg
