Utah Trials Events. 5-4 Jordan River.5-18 Delta-right in town.6-1 Trials school at Elberta. Great chance to learn from the experts or give trials a go if you have never tried it. Lunch will be provided.If you have never tried trials my description is instead of scaring the crap out of yourself at 50 mph on an off road bike you scare the crap out of yourself at 5 mph on a trialer. See ya there.

Pissed

Being that time of year again for riding to begin in earnest, thought I would do a little spring spiffing up of the dirt bike.

Had the Ape's exhaust ceramic coated by Rukse coatings here in SLC. Did their 1600deg. high temp black on the two headers, and silencer, and went with bright silver for the exhaust finishers and under seat heat shield.



Yes, Aprilia has the sweetest exhaust of any dirt bike (at least the '07 & '08's do). But she can be a bumm toaster. Looking forward to seeing a reduction in under seat temps wit the new mods.

I talked with Infidel... er, Walrus... er, the guy with too many bike and too much time on his hands. Sunday ride is on. Meet at the Einstein Bagel shop on Wasatch blvd in Olympus cove at 9.

We will head to 5 mile and make our way down to Eureka/cherry creek area and back. Big ass dirt bikes are welcome and any skill set should be fine for this ride. Come one... Come all... We'll have a ball.

After an entire day of wrenching, I finally achieved a result.....the front wheel is fitted.....No, the brakes are not functional and I had to pull both forks to get this far.....I am probably the worst wrench on this site..........



I should make it in the morning.....looking for those friendly LDS riders.....or did I get that backwards.........

PS.....I do have a secret......

Will this be mostly road or mostly dirt? I have anakees on my GS and not a fan of off reading much with them.

Five Mile today with my co-pilot. Dusty, dry and some big mountain bike thing was going on.
Stayed out of their way until it was over. I hope they come back to pick up the little route
flags left all over.

You may think it's a secret. The rest of us have suspected it for a long time.
Why do you think no one wants to room with you? It's cool. Ain't no closet big
enough to hold you in any longer. Now it's rainbows and unicorns for you huh?

I've heard gay people can't wrench for shit. Any comment?
