Went for a ride today on my new to me old XR. Rode with an old school guy
who has well over 50 + years riding in the mountains of New Mexico.
He rode trials, told me he started as a novice and went through all the
classes. then finished as a novice.

Gettin' ready to ride




Love meadows. Scroll right to view....










Tea Kettle Rock, a classic land mark in the Jemez Mountains.





A bit of rain and some hail. Love the monsoon season.


Salute'


Parking lot


Took the back road home over the Sandia Mountains.

Ribs

I'm a little late in posting this in the "today" thread. Two weeks ago my left hand slipped off of the bar coming over a log in a section. The log was within my comfort zone and I'd done it successfully 3 times prior. I'm not sure what happened but when the dust settled I found myself with cracked ribs. I had 7 sections to go and was able to finish on adrenaline - doubling my score in the process. I'm told it can take 6 - 8 weeks for ribs to heal. I'm 2 weeks in and the next event is in 3 weeks. Fingers are crossed...

Bit of a cheat here... owing to a chest infection i couldn't ride the Trial today... but i was able to walk around with the camera, and cough a lot!!

It was a classic/twinshock trial not far from my house... some nice bikes there today.

Very nice ans sanitary looking Bul's!

I've got the jetting sorted for my SWM, I had trouble finding out the right setup, after trying here and there I now use the standard setup with a little bit richer idle jet 65 instead of 60, (I live only 50m above sea level).




I believe the old jets are just a little bit clogged with old gas which decreased the diameter of the jets, with new jets in the same diameter the bike is now running very well instead of lean. Another new to me experience ...

I did an EnduroX today. It counts as trials, because Phil Smage was in my class. And I didn't come in last place.

I competed in my first ever trial today. I did pretty well more 0s, 1s, and 2s than 3s and 5s. I learned a bit too. It was a long loop and I'm slow so the second lap was my best. The 3rd really started to wear me out.

Wersideriser and I even check a section In the afternoon for the advance and expert classes. It was a pretty hard one all the experts 5ed the first time. Pretty fun to watch.

First ride over this log.

This log has intimidated me since I moved it into its spot a week ago. I finally decided to do it and it was not nearly as bad as I thought. Also spent about 40 minutes riding sections around our land with my life. Great Fun.

BYOB build your own Beta is easily the most dangerous site on the internet.

http://www.americanbeta.com/#


You can customize a bike, put a small deposit on it and it will be at your dealer in about 30 days.

Awful tempting, and I had a 300 all dressed out to the tune of $10K+ but couldn't hit the submit button!

Maybe I'll be braver tonight.

Wait till they go on sale in a few weeks and then you can add even more goodies.

Im not buying one, but love playing with the site feature anyway.

It gets worse, they told me that they can do a BYOB on a 2013 and they will begin shipping them in a few weeks. Just add $200 for a 2013.

Do I really need magnesium cases?

I need an intervention.

I think you did that very well.

Just mentioning/asking... you do know that there are at least 3 techniques to do what you did, and choices can depend on "what's next" in a section, or how level/big the log is. TTC shows some more freebies a while back, I think they are still up there. but that was very respectable log jump, if you ask me.

You my friend, would benifit from the DVD by Ryan young.
