Cool2 Hussie

I got my little Hoosieberger back from R&R. Crazy-- it had two different length fork springs in the front-- one was a #46 and the other looked similar but no number. Got 42's in there now, and lowered the oil level. So we will start there and see how I like her.
(I have to get over the fact that some heathens took advantage my little cutie pie while she was indisposed. Scalawags!! )

I will be riding somewhere this weekend, probably wherever is the LEAST dusty, as no rain in the forecast for a while...

I might be able to squeeze a few hours in the morning for a ride as well.
Adjusted my valves, reset my susp to factory settings.
Plan on playing with the clickers from there. Yes... the sags are set, both rider and static.

I might be down for Sunday...as long as my back heals properly...but not for a dedicated day at Mossy, maybe a little sprinkling of it and the rest at Spec would be cool.

Well this noob would love to hit the dirt.. if he could ever either be not working or doing calculus and physics. Its taken me a number of weeks just to get the NSU on my DR sorted and swap the stator cover. Eventually when its freezing cold and noone wants to ride, ill be ready

I've heard of some people putting different springs in to get to the middle number. 46 and a 48 gets the 47???

Hey fellas.

I just moved back to south eastern Alabama, looking for a new group to ride with. Been lurking on your thread off and on for a little bit. Looks like most of you ride a 530 EXC or similar bike, is that true? I mainly ride a 990 R, been up and down passes in Colorado and New Mexico, lots of high speed dirt roads everywhere else with it, not afraid of dropping it...but it's not the best in the deep sand stuff that is around here. I can get to P-Cola in a couple of hours, worth the commute to me if you guys are riding some good stuff. I've been looking at picking up a 450/500/530 EXC pretty soon.

I guess my question is, does non-sand offroad exist around here ? Do your rides usually stay dirt, paved, or a mix?

Thanks, be seeing you.

I wouldn't mind doing some Mossy but since my new suspension set up favors some speed vice turning, I would like a mix of terrain as Ian alluded to... but don't make plans around me. I am going out to get re-acquainted this new little hussie thang one way or another...

I vote for Spec pond Sunday AM, but could be persuaded to ride Mossy............
