    Was at the county fair again this year. Took second in the Takkie....the slowest ground speed machine again (won first a couple years ago with the slowest tire machine - JD).

    The T190 usually wins first as it seems to have more power when it needs it - like carrying the log - I was a few seconds ahead but he caught up pretty quickly. He works for the DOT. :)

    Cat brought the 259b3 and it was the quickest ground speed (8+ mph) but was surprisingly very tippy with the log. Almost decided to use it, but ended up glad that I stuck with Tacheuchi. The key was to keep it in 2 speed the entire time.

    couple of the guys had helmet cams:

    That seams like it was a lot of fun! I really like the football field goal. Very cool.

    I found the log to be really fun. Interestingly, the track machines are safer than the tire machines as people don't seem to get out-of-control as easily.

    It would be something to get ASV to bring one of their machines and see how it does with a 12 mph two speed. :)
