Wagner Ware Sidney. Have both the #8 and #3. My grandfather bought them shortly after getting married so I put their vintage in the mid to late 1930s. The crust on them is that old too.

I don't post much but wanted to thank you. I usually fuck up everything I grill so this was a great alternative for me. Holy shit was that good. I went just a bit over my target of medium rare, but no harm done. Still exceptionally delicious. Grandpa's

I asked a similar question about 5 years ago. We moved from the dirty butthole of upstate NY. I had a 2 year old at the time so my wife was focused on schools and we ended up in Poway. It's a bit sleepy but that's ok and we're 30min from everything (downtown, ... more »

Any comparison depends on your reference point and family situation. I moved to SD 5 years ago from upstate NY (10 min from Broome Tioga). Same time as Seth. My only regret is that we didn't do this 10-15 years ago. I completely appreciate your comment ... more »

That's good news. When I lived in NY I rode MX573 all the time as it was only 15 min away from my work. Got to know Ed pretty well. Met you (Turbo) there, and I paced you over the driveway double one day. I think my avatar is from there on a sloppy day. ... more »

Great video. I grew up on Yamaha 3-wheelers, starting at 4 yrs old on a YT125. Then moved up to a YTM200. So many fond memories of tearing through the woods, riding on frozen lakes and hoping for a snow day so we could ride on the roads. We literally ... more »
