Now that does look like fun. Sunday I had the pleasure of getting to ride a few different bikes including my old TE410, 450XCF Six Days, 570 Husaburg and a vintage IT490 air hammer. It was fun racing the kids around the track on that old blubbering pig. Even though the beast had been fully restored with tight bearings and such, you could still tell the technology and design is fully dated. Anf to think, at one time that beast was state of the art technology.

Much like Dragoon said...
Terry was a friend of mine. He was a good guy, but he just lived life by his own rules. Fast rules. Airplanes, helicopters, motorcycles, race cars, guitars, guns, etc. He still holds a world record from his drag boat racing days. He had his own Harley shop for years back when it wasn't popular to be a "biker".
He bought a KTM 520 a few years ago and tried to get back into trail riding with us. He even brought some smaller cats down do our Dual Sport ride last year and walked them around on a leash. If you asked Terry to borrow $100, he'd have given you $200. That's just how he was.
He's handed me and my daughter 6 week old lion and tiger cubs that were born at his place. I'll never forget that stuff. Going to his place was generally an exercise in intestinal fortitude.
He was largely a misunderstood individual. I'm sure that his time in Vietnam contributed to that. He had just emerged from time served in the lock-up from a questionable weapons charge, ( no warrant, and no probable cause for search and seizure) to find that his wife of 40+ years had cut bait. I'm sure that he felt hopeless. No excuse for what he did, but I can see how it developed. . He lived life at a level that many of us will never experience.
I'll miss him. A lot.

And, yes, Zanesville has lost some of it's spice with T gone.

Everybody has a few TT stories. I'm fairly certain that the police officers here won't see Terry in the same light as I did

Korey, I just learned the other day that Tom Roberts died. Zanesville is going to be like every other boring town with out our colorful people

Good times!

I see there are other cyclists on here. I'd be up for doing it again sometime next spring.

I don't know what he did over there, but the reporter on the radio said "The combat life expectancy of his mosc was measured in minutes, and he did three tours."

Okay, for six years now I've been told by the best riders I know about how weight DOES effect the ability of a tire to hook up. The more weight the less air pressure in theory you need to drop. Anyone else wanna confirm this for me?

If so maybe you can explain it to these guys ---> http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=733866

So far they are trying to tell me a Shinko 244 is the same as an Avon Gripster and that the rear on my 950 should be at 10psi off road. Granted I have a rim lock on the tire but 16 psi under roughly 700 lbs of bike and man meat should be enough. Right?

Larry, Rob, Tom, Shawn, Corey, or any other enduro riders wanna sound off on this?

Tell them to use a good 50 weight synthetic.


Oh, wait. nevermind.

First statement is retarded...the 244 is utterly different than a Gripster both in block pattern and in compound, sidewall thickness and so on. The 244 is a much better offroad tire, period.

Second statement is pretty limited too, 10psi on a bike that heavy on the terrain we ride is foolish. You will like bend the shit out of a rim on a bike the size of yours with that weight, when you hit a rock or something sharp with some momentum....if you're running something flexy like a 244. Might get away with it with a more stout tire, but then it's not going to benefit much from being nearly flat either except possibly in the most greasiest stuff...and marginally at that. I'd never go below 15-20 on a big bike (where you're correct, heavier weight and rider helps to maximize grip) unless I was caught in pure slop and needed to slowly paddle out of it.

In that situation, you're just better off with a 606 or Trakmaster anyway.

Gripster is an 80/20 tire, and not the best one offroad at that. I'd rather run a 705, cheaper and better in the dirt on a heavy bike IMHO.

Okay, nice to hear I'm NOT crazy and the wind and rain didn't freeze my brain earlier today.
