Road worthy despite its scars
We took our ATV (quad) in to be tested and certified for road safety today. Our road sticker, called the Marchamo, expires at the end of May so we had to get it done soon. We (meaning Kevin) wouldn't have been able to complete all the cosmetic surgery before the end of next week, and without the approved Marchamo, we would have had to transport it on a trailer to San Marcos. Kevin replaced the melted tires, got the seats recovered and all things mechanical are running well and as they should. It still looks like hell on the one side, but apparently cosmetics are not an important factor.... it PASSED! Hallelujah!! We will still order the parts we need and Kevin will eventually rebuild the body... but for now, we're happy that it is considered road worthy. That's a load off our minds. And being able to drive it on the property is very useful, too. Things are looking up!

The guy has done a good job on the seat and at a very good price!
