Ohhhh my bad. LOL Those vinyl pools, have you see an increase of people using them instead of a standard pool with concrete and rebar and so forth? You think people might be doing that because of the economic hard times right now.

there are mixed opinions all over the place on this subject, Bobcats controls are more fidgety in certain models(the 430zts is the only one I know of) But the controls in Bobcats take less movement to do a certain movement, its definetly a different feel to CAT joysticks, but I like them, the hydraulics seem to react faster, but I've put a whole lot of hours on Bobcat mini ex's, I'd assume thats why I prefer them..


But if you wanna get a feel for one, dont go judge off a rental, rentals are pieces of crap that are fixed just enough to run and they are made to do things machines never should do..

No i dont race them but ive always wanted to do motocross. MY dads a city boy so he never really was into this stuff and therefore i never really knew about Quads and dirt bikes till i was 13. Now i can buy all of my own toys and so i just do it for fun.

Really just depends on the type of person the buyer is on what type of pool they buy, but there are more vinyl pools simply because of price. An expensive pool for us is $30,000, we've had more expensive ones, but most are in the low to mid $20k.

As far as the economic down turn, we had 2 pools on the books to do in the first of march and they got pushed back to, well, who knows..

For a sport bike a manual is the only way to go. Its super easy to learn to and you have way more controll for trail riding. I can make you a sweat deal if your interested.

Good luck to you to, I am just now getting rolling on my first job, had alot of bids early on, but nothing panned out. But I am getting a really late start, I am usually up and running after the first week of Feb.

Thats unfortunate.

My cousins have dirt bikes and i love riding them at my property. I always thought i could do motocross becuase my cousins would always dare me to do some crazy Sh*t on the bike and i would be stupid enough to actually do it and i would always pull it off. I have had some really close calls and have taken some nasty spills but never broke anything or had to go to the hospital.
