300 Superority

Here is a video of a friend, 26,trying to catch me on my 300 XC-W. He edited in 3 kickstarts at the start but it was one and he just repeated that clip, just to get a dig in. He could not keep up with me ( I am now 71). I had to wait on him even though he is a very fast and competent rider. At the end he wore out and crashed. It made a nice ending to the 4 + minute video.

Hi

Nope, I don't have them on 300 but on 650X. I've used the front for quite a few K including a fair bit of road and wear is fine. Rear again same bike have done 800k, of which 220 was of road, about 90 was trail (desert like sand and rocks). It hold fine. I did about 10k in very slick mud and clay mix and it was perfect for the big bike. I thing for a hard tyre is very grippy.

300?...

Well...almost "300". $281.00...

worth of x-rays, that is. I got a discount for paying cash...no medical coverage.


The ol' XC-W tried to kill my ass, again, today. Doctor's diagnosis- Bruised ribs and a possible concussion. I have to go back, for a CT scan, if the headache continues.

I hit an overhanging tree, about 9" in diameter, at about 20-30 m.p.h. (while woods riding). Actually, my head hit it, and pulled the rest of my 220lb. body off the bike. I hit the ground like Mike Tyson gave me his best.

I never saw that fukker comin'. I came-out of a tight left-hander, stood in the throttle, and WAM!...blackness. Got-up with my "wind" half-knocked out of me, and the bike laying about 15-feet away.


Gear? No koerta or roost/chest protector. However, I was wearing my Leatt. I cringe to think of the outcome if I wasn't.

Sorry guys...no actions shots, this time.


I turned 40 last week. All I can say is, "40 hurts".

Crash

I feel your pain WARRIORPRINCE. I hit a low hangin' tree in a hare scramble once and all went black, I was out like a light. All I remember is I woke up, laying on top of the bike, and had to drag it backwards, uphill, to get it untangled from the trees. All this while other racers were using me as a berm. I've smacked a couple other "low-hangers" with my head since then and rung my bell but nothing like the first time. I try to really watch for that stuff now. I'll be 54 in December and that shit hurts more the older you get.....

Warrior, wishing you a speedy recovery. It has been about 35 years since I had a bell-ringer like yours. Being in my 70th year, I now say I did all my fast riding 40 years ago. AGATT, although you do remind me that I need a Leatt brace. Thanks.

Jack

Thanks (to all) for the well-wishing, and words of wisdom. I can always count on the guys from ADV.


A little off the 300 topic, but, I'll tell you what...

To me, having that Leatt is like having a helmet. It's just a necessity...one of the realities of riding. For a while there, I was even wearing it on the street. And, at the moment, can't remember why I stopped. I love the thing. And, this is the second accident where I feel that it has played a pivotal role.

I think that protective gear is a matter of choice...to each his own. But, if you are even considering a Leatt, I would highly recommend it.


YMMV...

I went in to buy a Maxxis IT, which I have on my cr-250, and it works really well around here. But all they had for hard compound was the AC10, it doesn't chunk which is good, but once it starts wearing it really wears fast. If i was running 20% slab I might buy another one depending on how well it works on pavement.

My next tire is going to be a Cheng-Shin, 120-r18, hard compound. They're only half the price as the bigger names, and some guys around here swear by them. If there not half as good I'll be going back to a Maxxis IT.

But yeah for 20% slab, the AC10 is worth a shot.

Check it out. Slavens is selling pipe guards now.

You'd be better off investing in a dent kit.

By spreading out the impact to the smaller part of the pipe, pipe guards cause more damage than they prevent. A ding in the big part of the pipe is no biggie, a crease up near the port connection makes the bike run like crap.

Wanna know how I know?

Yeah, I thought so.
