i figured it was safer to ride up to work to get my paycheck than take a car lol this is at the CSU at MSU.

Tie rod's not a huge deal. Did that same thing myself last year, Polaris steering setup is designed to do that.

Looks like a good time, I have a friend who's an RA at MSU Mankato.

yeah its not too bad. used ones are like 15 bucks on ebay. well thats good to know hes not the only one lol i dont think it helps that the spindles were put on backwards [beatup]

i figured someone would know MSU some. i had to take a picture because it probably wont happen again.

its great to have people like you guys go out early and "mark" all the culverts and other obstacles. i personally wait for a while just for that reason.

We stuck around home because we know where most stuff is."most" lol there's always surprises. But we still don't know what happened, we didn't find anything. There had to be something tho. I doubt backwards spindles would do that. But mabey.

You'd be surprised of what you can't see, I came tearing out of a corner at my local mx track pinned to the bar. Hit either a pipe or a rock I never saw it. I was pretty damn sore after that.

Anyways I'd sure as hell gone for a rip on my sled with a foot on the ground.

I would rather have the ground frozen first and then see all that snow.
