2008 V-Star 1300 Tourer

I’m curious, how many people know what a cord of wood is without looking it up?FINALLY got around to taking the back wheel off of the 1100 to take it in and have the tube replaced. I got the new jack delivered last week, but was dealing with a couple of cords of wood that I was buying before it gets cold here. I decided to have the rear tire replaced at the same time. Don't want to pull the wheel again in another 1500 miles. View attachment 121113 View attachment 121114
I grew up the same way. I turn 65 this month and I always cut it myself until 2 years ago when my truck took a total crap on me and I never bought another. I still have to carry it from the driveway where it is dropped, to the back yard and stack it....I’m curious, how many people know what a cord of wood is without looking it up?
I grew up with a wood burning fireplace as our only source of heat. And we never purchased wood.
So… a cord. Who knows?
Have it as an option, not mandatory. THAT's the dream!I too grew up with wood burning. Cut and split a lot as a youngster. Kind of longed for the day when I could just turn up the thermostat and have warmth without all the work.
Then as a homeowner (on 20 acres) I found I was cutting up a lot of wood just as maintenance and storm cleanup. Seemed a waste to burn huge piles watching the heat escape into the sky. So installed a wood burning stove in my house. I love to back up to it on cold winter nights and feel the heat radiate from it.
I bought extra cables just in case since I ordered cams/pistons and a few more bits and bobbles too. I might be snapping a few more cables here and there. For research purpose. 😂Bummer. Maybe you have been twisting the throttle to hard.
Good thing, pretty easy fix.
