If you mean whitey's, I have a klx450r. I'll probably get it plated this winter. I had it down at Pete's for it's maiden voyage remember?


There were a lot of bald tires on that ride. I think there was a ditch in the way before you made it to the wall. I don't remember you being at Pete's or were you the one that got there when I was getting ready to roll out?

About 20 mins before or so, did a few laps of the bottom with Tom,tried death hill once,couldn't see Jack.

I watched the video a few times trying to figure it out. The bike goes down fast and ends up pointing up hill,never did figure out what exactly happened. And other than no more nearly bald tires in mud and slow the f down,I can't think of much more to take away from that.

For those in the Danville ride tomorrow, there may be some back tracking involved. Most of this ride is within a half mile of rivers, and a lot of it is in flood areas. Im hopeful that everything is passable, but I doubt it will be. If this ends up sucking, blame Mother Nature, not me!

Yeah, but the river is usually like a minimum of 5 feet lower than the road.
