The rear you might fall asleep doing. 100x easier than the front.

What size hole were you trying to drill?
I start with a 1/8 and move up from there to 3/8 inch hole, never had any problems

What do you mean? You never got a flat tire at high noon in front of the mega tire whore-house emporium that was having a once a year giant mega collosal buy one tire and get 3 more free and a quickie and case of beer and all the pizza you can eat buffet and they happened to have your exact brand and tire size .........wait, I never did either.....LOL

So there is this guy who sits on a quad alone deep in these woods. It takes me about an hour to get from him to the end of the trail where he would have came in. Was there last night and again tonight. Going back tomorrow.

He doesn't even have any beers.

Maybe it's the only place he can get some peace and quiet. Makes me consider buying a quad.
