Todd forgot to mention he just picked up a new 1190. Free demo days any Saturday at
his home. Just tell him Pluric sent you. The thing is very impressive.

Right place, poor time of year for trail rides locally. Hang around stuff comes up even with the snow.
What kind of bike do you ride? Street legal? More importantly do you have a sister? Some here are
more interested in if you have a brother.

Avoid The Walrus for personal hygiene reasons.

Other than that, welcome to Utards.

Sorry no sister or brother . I have a f650gs Dakar, and was just hoping to get something on the books to look forward too

Should be a good fit. Many rides would work for what you ride.

If Kevin says "There might be a few rocks" that means you better own a trials bike.

Ok recently moved from California, and thought people were pulling my leg about this setup! That looks awesome. I would love to see a vid of you in action.

Been talking to Kow about finally getting out on one of these some day... This is unreal if you ask me. The bad news though is its as heavy as an actual sled now. They are much much better on the side hill though. They have something like 3 of them so psyched to try both this and the lighter 520/525 ones. There is also a 640 on KSL for something like $1700 right now too... :)

I think most are doing this with lighter big bore singles.
Seem like a KX500 would be ideal.

KX500 or another massive 2 stroke would be huge I bet with a big old desert tank perhaps...

Harcus took my out to Elberta last Tuesday to show me the ropes.






Actually most of the time he looked like this:



And he's pretty adept at riding over rocks. I only took five pictures and none of them were of him doing that however. You'll have to take my word for it.



I was riding this:



I think it has about 2 horsepower, both of which I used, and a carburetor which needs a bit of sorting out, but it would climb anything I dared point it at. The session ended with me being pinned under it with my legs jammed between the rear tire and the fender. I learned that when the bike wheelies out from under you let it go. If you try and save it there's a good chance it will come back and try and eat you. All and all a fun day - thanks Jim! - and I'm looking forward to more. Anyone else up for Tuesday outings?

Well you know what they say, Kev - if it doesn't kill you it just might make you limp.
