Pretty much all of it. It felt right on the money down at 1800 feet. Here it feels sort of boggy, also backfiring a hair on idle down and a solid 20% weaker... I just ordered the JD kit. I know they are cheap but it will help coming with destruc, I mean instructions.. :)

The spring on it is a 8.0. One small step up from stock. Not sure if I need to beef this up or not. The sag adjuster is maxed out tight (guy I bought it from did this, weighed 210 lbs). I do sorta want a soft suspension though..

Otherwise, all in all, still super psyched...

The nice thing about the JD kits is the support from them and the specific jetting suggestions for your bike. I put one in my CRF250X I had and they were a great help.

Riding from American Fork to Mexican Hat (SE Utah) on Saturday for "Meet at Moki", returning on Sunday. All paved road except the 3 miles down the face of the mesa at Moki Dugway, which is graded dirt.

PM me if interested.

We got a ride for the new guy that mostly fits his bill if not his gas tank!

sun am: Stockton to Little Sahara! let the adventure begin/wait several hours!

fuel up in stockton, top off in Eureka, dump gas out of 2 liter bottles at little sahara, and head back the dirt fast route and/or some slab depending on time.

Flipster: u street legal if needed?

I'll be on my sand/street worthy XR400.

we'll nail down the agenda and let ya'll know via PM's... PM me if you're interested.

The instrument cluster is drying, but I hope to try it out this afternoon.
Seems to have a "longhorn" look for some reason...?

That looks a tad familiar ;)

Darrell lives in Summit County and happens to be a rider as well. His FJ45 morphed into a 'troopy' over the years. The company I own/operate was started by Darrell and it was in my days working there that I met Andre (dieselcruiserhead) many moons ago.

I'm in and so is Kimbro. Stanislav said he might go too. I'm changing tires and gearing on our bikes. Also, I know you cruiser guys from some time back from B&B, Kurt and Darrell. You two guys should show up to Stockton on Sunday morning too! -Dan

Hauled up some more summer toys to get ready for the
warmer weather. Get rid of these damn snowmobiles.



Went for a little ride to see what the conditions are out there.
Less snow than I thought, but you do keep running into these...



Couple more weeks of this weather and the trails should be open.

Rather than ride today and tomorrow, I decided to adopt the GISKev method of staying fit for riding - that is to say I did yard work all day. Tomorrow, more yard work.
