Yeah, I'll say. Took this pic of him just chillin' dead stick. Gordy and Poppa Kyle discussing techniques in the background -





A couple more of Gee(squared) on the same silly-assed splatter -







He gets the front wheel up just THAT MUCH more, and he's in Champ territory.

I'm leaning toward the narrow DID xring chain for the Montesa. Thoughts?

I ran a couple of MX chains on my Montesa 4RT ... they lasted about a year before requiring replacement. Now I run a DID VT2 narrow x-ring enduro chain. Has been on there for 2 years and have yet to adjust it. Not even 1/5 worn!

That's about what others have said too on various other forums.

And I guess the narrow factor helps with all the plastic sliders and tensioners too. My cheapo performance parts chain is nearly rubbing on the case saver. It was a tight fit getting it in there.

Fiddled with recording via iphone

I've been meaning to record myself practicing in the yard for a while now to see if what I think I'm doing is anything close to what's really happening... I finally did yesterday. In hindsight, I should have taken the time to position the camera better and recorded landscape. So if you're really bored, here's ~4 minutes of me riding back and forth over the same little log...

Here are some more from today.



GeeGee.

This man has ice in his veins.






Brewtus on the famous POS Honda Twinshock (now with 20% more power)







This is the canyon close to Alb. with all the rocks that we ride.




This is what you find in Brewtus' abductor van while helping him look for his lost keys.

I just knew I'd see this pic soon.

Gift from my mother. She said all the Disco guys had Trans-Ams or custom Dodge vans back in the day. She bought that CD set for me the day after I bought the Abductor. I forgot it was in there.

Thanks Gordy. Play that funky music, white boy!!

Sh-t ,If I knew you rode that POS today I would have gave you some trials ready tires on the abductor when I drove by this morning. 6 PSI would make you forget about keys! I carry a set in the left pocket, right pocket and my fanny pack!!!
