Not much rain so far, but more may be on the way.


Speaking of neglected orange bikes, I picked up a bigger tank this week.



I'm thinking I should mount some rubber cushions or spacers between the bottom corner of the radiator and the sides of the tank. Any ideas on this?

Nevermind, I figured it out.

On a another note, I have an Acerbis 6.6 gallon tank for sale. $150.00 plus shipping, PM me if interested. Posting here first in case any locals are interested. Should fit 07 and older EXC's.

Life sucks for me right now. Study, study, study... classes all day, studying every waking moment.

I'll resurface in about four weeks when the worst of the academic enema is over.

Enjoy your ride. Post lots of pics.

Dirt Weekend

Ok I went through the 5hunny today and she is ready to roll. I even put air in the tires and things like that.

Weather is calling for rain and then clear Saturday and Sunday... if thats true I may head out to Karick and spend night.
Apperson may bring his rig also.
WR ? Others?
Barney said he will be available for bike to bike refueling from his new tanker!

Hooknup? Get your ass over here and ride/camp/ride. You know where its at.

FBM - You will enjoy Im sure. Hope you make it.

BTW - this ride is challanging all dirt DS ride and larger bikes may not be comfortable.

Jeff, sounds like you will have all Saturdays off?

Be good to see you out riding more.

More than welcome. As I recall you were right there all day!

The only issue (besides hunters of course) is the weather. It is full dump time in FWB right now. Hope we get some relief.
I will NOT be out there in the mud.... cant afford to get hurt...

So we will see how the weekend turns out before pulling the triger.
