96mph?

Think I could possibly have done that on the way to breakfast Sunday.

Anyway, after breakfast I wasn't up for riding further west so I wens south on 15 to 64 the exited at exit 143 and followed backroads down through colombia. Crossed the james a few times. Managed to find one gravel road and a few patches of ice in a couple hollows. About 190 miles for the day. Breakfast had good food and good company.

Somehow it occurred to me during the ride though that I want to adjust the preload on my forks. Oh, and I actually lubed the chain when I got home. I think that is my maintanence for the year.


Hope everyone had a nice ride, whichever ride they took on Sunday.

I sure miss doing burnouts!

I was showing off one night during my senior year of high school, and when finished a figure 8 donut and headed out straight, the rear tire caught traction and I wheelied out of it for about 50 yards.

All of my buddies thought I was Evel Knievel or something. I had to go change my drawers...



That's a fun video MIke. I really enjoyed it.

Nice vid, though I must say you look a bit more cramped on the Yammie than you do now on the KTM!

Hey everyone. I'm getting my DRZ ready for the spring and noticed my headlight is cracked. It is a baja designs kit. BD wants an arm and a leg for a replacement lens not including the shipping. Any ideas? It won't pass inspection with it being cracked :(

I just ordered a mirror and a new battery from rockymountainatv.com .....

Just get a cheaper plastic replacement. I do not believe there is a requirement for a glas lens here in VA. At least, my guys never look for one.

If it's a stock "s" lens, there's probably no cheap way out, except ebay.
