I did the gixxer pipe thanks to Jax, rejetted the carb and replaced the stock needle that was in no way shaped like a needle. It'll definitely pop a wheelie but it hurts too much the way I did it so I don't try that anymore.

I guess I am going to need to go get a KLR now to go with my Tiger....

I did find a used DR650 that needed some work for 1300...I guess I should have jumped on it.

Had a good time on Sunday. Never ridden in sand before so Gary was giving out great advice. Will go down there again and play around in the sand. After the canal I rode up to Susquehanna State Park. Played on as many dirt roads I could find from Columbia to Conowingo. Nice to meet everyone Tom x2 and Gary.

Thanks

Brian

Sorry I missed the ride guys... Got called into work last minute.

Though when I got out around 3:00, I did do some Hack inspired short track racing. Video attached below:



Didn't feel like cutting the grass, so I mowed a race track into the yard and set about playing instead. Was a good time, and yes, I should have had ATGATT...

Good Route to Hershey

I am going up to Hershey, PA weekend after next (up Saturday morning, back in late afternoon).

I am in Middletown, DE but haven't lived here a long time, so am not super familiar with the routes north.

I know you guys go to Ephrata for Sunday breakfast now and then.

Could you share a recommended route? I'm riding the bike, so I'm looking for a nice ride, not necessarily the quickest way.

Regards,

Barron

...But you have a shiny new KLR! How could you even be thinking about another bike?

(This, my friends, is an acceptable definition of sarcasm)
