Re: Year-round E15 Ethanol being pushed by EPA

For many years, all subsidy payments received by by anyone were posted on a USDA website. Cadet Bone Spurs decided the American public had no right to see it, so he ordered it taken down.

The PROOF is in those checks from the farm program to his family checking account. Do you want to see his birth certificate also?

Re: Year-round E15 Ethanol being pushed by EPA

Iowa Congressman Chuck Grassley and his son and grandson have received more that $1.5 MILLION from the federal farm subsidy program. Might be a clue as to why the rest of us are stuck buying crapgas. If you had as much money as the ethanol lobby, you could afford to buy your own personal member of t...

Re: Ethanol! Yes or No?

Solina Dave, ethanol is NOT, NOT, NOT good for the environment. It actually pollutes the air more than straight gasoline. Ethanol only exists because of the farm lobby. It uses MASSIVE amounts of water, as does the growing of the corn, and actually uses more energy to produce than it creates. I woul...

Re: Letter writing campaign against E15 ethanol gasoline

I went through the motions but the only way you are going to influence anything is if you send your congressman an envelope with a big fat check in it. All the members of this forum don't have enough money combined to buy a Congressman. They are cheap, but not that cheap. Now, if you have young, cu...

Re: Stuck Two Stroke Piston

Pour some Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinder and let it set for a few days. Pull the head and GENTLY tap on the piston with a light hammer using a chunk of wood as a "go between". This will only work as long as the piston is NOT at TDC or bottom of stroke.
Let us know how it turns out.

Death of a Honda dealer

Dean Schlitter, who ran the Honda Powersports dealership in Oelwein, Iowa, died last week. I bought my 2005 Goldwing trike from him and had some service work done there. Dean ran a dealership, NOT a stealership. He was a gentleman, and easy to deal with. He will be missed. No word yet on the fate of...

Re: Howe Kutter GoldWing-GL1000 fairing

They haven't been in business for MANY years. When the factories started putting fairings on bikes, the demand for third party fairings ended.
I would think that Ebay and Craigslist would be the best place to look.

Re: Howe Kutter GoldWing-GL1000 fairing

Howe fairings were made in a factory on Airline Highway in Cedar Falls Iowa. At the time, I lived about 4 miles from there. I always found it interesting that they also made two wheeled racing sulkies.

Sorry if this is a repeat, but remember... the reason ethanol is cheaper is because it is Government Subsidized.
