Well sir once I leave Calisuckistan, I don't plan on ever coming back. The only reasons I'd come back would be to visit family, or if work or something ever demanded it. No matter where I move I'm sure I will love it more than here. I'm sure I'll even go riding with some of the local ADV'ers. Who knows, maybe make a trip out to visit you and ride.

Spud I like to guess where you are in your pictures. Is this on a ridge looking into the Bancroft/Chesterfield valley?

You're very close. I'm south of there, overlooking Grace.



The last time I was up there, I had to go around several windfalls coming back down.



The mountain trails are covered in snow; winter will be here very soon. However, I shouldn't complain. We had a very long, wonderful riding season this year.

Your post is a fine example of the attitude that has become prevalent here. The threatening behavior while on the other side of a computer monitor is one reason I don't post much on here or TT anymore, because I'm not going to get into an online argument with some loud mouth who doesn't care to be rational.
I really don't remember having any problem with you, ever, and though some of the things you brought here are useful, I won't soon forget your attitude now.
All of the childish responses go a long way in showing the character of people on here. A lot of the spelling and sentence structure is terrible too.

You never have anything positive to add to the thread so you're not some victim you're a volunteer...
Why can't you contribute to the forum instead of bashing us all here?

Your trip was inspiring. Folks like you who can say "screw it" and do stuff like that have always fascinated me. I am too much of a planner to just take off and go.

Ya, my girl hasn't quite gotten the hang of "come on lets go, we'll just make it up as we ride". We took a weekend trip a few weeks ago and there wasn't much room for the whole "just go" thing. We only did 520 miles, I did make up the camping place, on the spot. She thought that was pretty cool. Hopefully soon we will do another trip thats longer. The four day one got postponed a bit.

so i was looking at all the fmf mufflers on ebay and wandered??!!
there is the q4
there is the power core 4
and one other i cant keep them straight anymore!

the power core 4 is only like $250
the others are like $350!

so which is the one most xrl owners use? the $250 one is in my price range but wander if it is the right one for my bike.
i like the stock one just lookin to shed a little weight.
i would mod mine if i knew exactly what to do to it. i have the tools just not exactly which parts to modify.
thanks

I have the FMF Power Core 4 on my daughters bike. I wasn't worried about the noise not being a Q4. It has a bit of a bark when you get on it. Not bad really.
