    I,m changing my name as I got it all under control. my Yamaha 250r was my horse that I carried my guns,bows,turkeys on hunting. now that I sold it an no longer 2 wheel savy I had to give it up. now we have some new kids that moved in up the road with lots of friends an all have 4wheelers,dirt bikes that run up an down the road ,racing ,wheelies all hours of the day an night . I knew the neighbors were all upset an not long before the man would be after them. I heard they were after them an got a few ,none seen Lately. the man comes by here about every day so that put the wammy on me buying a 4 wheeler to hunt off as I have to drive on the road a piece to lots of my spots.

    The heat is on so now I,m buying me a mid size 4x4 tractor with loader around 45hp with cab if I can.I will have a orange triangle on the back ,be street legal an will have my shoulder holster with big handgun on board . I will keep my neighbors farm lanes open an have there permission to drive on there property out back my home to hunt . I got it all figured out an looking hard for the right horse ,I mean tractor. thinking about removing the seat an replacing it with a nice saddle with stirrups , leather scabbard for my rifle . now soon I will be the street legal tractor cowboy :D

    You have more in common with me than you realize!
    A couple yrs ago I did meet a couple of Pa state troopers while driving that Polaris down the road, they stopped so I stopped cause it'd been rude not to :p, they ask me a couple quick questions then I mentioned trail cams and that's all it took, they wanted to know if I had a deer or bear pics I could show them :). They were very nice and wished me well, never said anything about being on the roads or ask for any license or anything else.

    Most times if you're nice to them, and treat them respectfully, they'll forgive a certain amount of chit!:D Then on the other hand, there is that one guy on a power trip!:eek:

    Here in MI, it's now legal to drive your ATV on the side of the road so long as you stay on the shoulder, wear a helmet, and keep it under 25 MPH. You ought to see this place now, with all the golf carts and ATVs!! You can't go down the state and federal routes, but you can cross them. Of course there are those who abuse the speed laws and drive down the center of the road, etc. I like my tractor though, but an ATV is faster.

    Good thing I live in the middle of nowhere, I like to drive my toys on the roads or whats left of them.
    My ole ford jubliee tractor she stays at home though. There's lots of Amish buggy's on the roads around here, not good to meet up with them after dark.

    Yes sir! The Mennonites around here all have those metal tires and ride the roads at will, despite many signs saying "non-pneumatic tires prohibited":rolleyes:. This is a tough time of year, especially Sunday nights when they are out for rides, most wearing all or mostly black. Most have blinkers on their bikes, but one that cut through traffic at an intersection on 222 last Sunday did not.:eek: Just glad I saw him in time.

    Hope the JD does well for you, Frank. The Deere the project owns is our most reliable tractor, though the director says all the smaller Deeres are made in Japan. One thing I hate is driving them over the road to get to our various well scattered plots.:(

I offered to sell them mine :p they get ran over quite often around here as this is Amish county in all directions for many miles.

    I just passed a buggy a few minutes ago that has two Yellow blinker lights on the back of it, that was a first. Most of them just have small red tail lights or one small blinkie light on the buggy. They like living dangrous around here.
    They have a bunch of dairy farms, several saw mills and stone quarry's around here. They used to have a cheese factory a couple miles over the hill but they sold it to a investor a long time ago but they retained the Amish cheese house name and they do a tremendous business.

    I don't think you can go wrong with a decent condition John Deere. Parts & service are readily available plus the internet is loaded with guys that know all the tricks an things to watch out for.
