The answer to that is: Ms piggy ran that afternoon. Minor teardown to accomplish this....harcus, tools and experience, roostre, leg and coaching....

And over the past 72 hours, I've had her dismantled, cleaned, plug and fluids replaced, tuned and ready for the Arizona Strip ride....more thanks to Starskey who stopped over to assist with finalization and loading for tomorrow's ride...

I still think that mud-hole was a set-up.......I was on the pegs, horizontal boogie, in the mud..........

edit: what's all this I'm reading about the momentofinertia.....I liked biochem but my heart was in physics and calculus.......just not enough money back in the day...........

But what about the angle of the dangle?

Seriously, I only notice the extra weight when I pry the bigass dirtbike off the cold, hard ground.

But I notice the extra girth when we're sneaking through the tight-and-twisties.

TWISTER: angle of the dangle equals the distance that yer arse is extended over the line for your weight w technical riding ratio...
...are you riding light bikes w/ us Sat or what?! maybe you could take my 4hunny if you're lite-bike-less, and i'll take my 650...

The angle of the dangle is proportional to the mass of the snake...............that reaches out from the forest and tips you over on the giant blue machine!

Thanks for the offer, Kev! I just serviced and tweaked my 200 and it's ready to go (offroad). I'm kinda leaning toward an epic loop through the canyons, with an overnighter in Green River.

I see leg listed, how many kicks?

Every time I see a 650R on KSL, I'm tempted but the kicker scares me :) Last winter I kicked my WR426 plenty, but I never got it totally wet.

Is there any video footage of the event?

Is what we ought to do is ... sneak, bob and weave all day Saturday through the Swell and end up at a motel in Green River (maybe bring the sleeping bag and a tarp just to keep the options open). Sunday we ride the White Rim Trail and then blast back to Slick, maybe a little in the dark.

Takers?

I may be interested in this ride. I told a friend who is here from TN that I would take him South to see the sites, but he may bail on me. If he bails, I am up for an overnighter.

I only have a 110-120 mile range - do you have a way of carrying extra fuel?

Sure, I have room for a gallon or two in the bigass dirtbike's bigass panniers.

torque wrench, gear and ride

I'm looking at picking up a torque wrench. Any recommendations on the best torque wrench?

I'm slowly gathering gear; just picked up this helmet:
Arai XD-3

I would love to ride this weekend, but I have a date with 3500sq/ft of cedar fence; she is ready to be oiled up and I hope to beat the snow.

When the new helmet arrives I'll be ready for desert trip (big salty loop) or something.

Have good weekend

Did a fun and easy 310 mile loop (260 dirt-50 slab) in the West Desert today.

Started here.


Went by this.


Did plenty of this.


Had fun here.


Didn't have fun here.


Ran out of gas but got REALLY lucky.


Had fun again.


Then not so much fun.
