From MSTA website:
"The MSTA rally "Tri-Star" is based out of the Alleghany Inn in Sparta, NC at 341 North Main Street on US 21.
Sparta in the northwest North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains is nestled between the New River and the Blue Ridge Parkway, offering scenic vistas, unspoiled landscape and friendly folk.
Named Tri-Star because you’re only a few miles from the States of Virginia and Tennessee.
So come and enjoy the scenic beauty and miles and miles of great twisty mountain roads.
See registration form for event fees and pre-registration discount. Join us for a Friday evening cookout and Saturday evening BBQ dinner.
Lots of things to do in the area for those not interested in riding
A great way to spend your Memorial Day Weekend."
Be sure and ride US421 and 16
We pwnd them last weekend at Ricks RDV
ps: avoid the parkway, especially on a holiday weekend

That is good news. Magnas are a good heavy bike, hence its victory over the deer. Glad you're ok and your ATGATT example speaks volumes. Hope you're feeling ok, since its been a couple days has the soreness settled in ?

Where are you getting them and how long do they take to ship? I need it for next weekends night ride!
Also, what size front sprocket are you running?

Edit, the long version since I made it to a computer:

I'm guessing mine wore out because the OEM chain is getting kinky (despite being thoroughly lubed), and because I was using the full suspension travel yesterday on the jumps. Sooo, if I replace the slider, I should replace the chain. And if I replace the chain, I should replace the oem sprockets. And since I'm replacing the sprockets, I'd like to go up one in the front to 14 front and 47 rear. This will bring the overall ration down just a hair from OEM, but will get the chain much further from the slider, to hopefully eliminate slider wear. But if I go 14 front, then my current aftermarket engine case guard won't fit, and I'll have to buy the freedom industries one.
And that's how a $50 piece of plastic is going to cost me $300.
Dammit.

Turn signals are not required for converted bikes in Ohio.
+1 I was shocked when I didn't see turn signals listed on the Affidavit form, since the Ohio Revised Code does state that they are required (as Meef mentioned earlier). Obviously there is some gray area, but I can see someone easily getting out of a ticket (for no turn signals) if they show the court the Affidavit form.

Glad the human damage was minimal, and hopefully progressive will take care of you. Follow up and let us know how it goes.

Been incommunicado this week, but saw your pictures.

Trick Dual Sport - top notch DS kit. Excellent engineering and work - ability for some custom connections (Trail tech and 12,v plug). Is it worth more than double a Tusk? I'm cheap so. I'm torn. You get an easy harness, cotriol box, and icomponents are higher quality - tTusks stuff is adequate tho. are adequ than Baja at the same price Ya. Dales a good guy and happy to work with you. The Dizzer kits been very durable

Good news Sion
