Well done & best to you & your team

Well, we do have an Old's Cool guy who can make stickers (Khao) and we have an inmate/moderator (Heyduke) that owns/runs a T-Shirt shop here in Colorado.

So, let me see:

1. Means - Check
2. Motive - Check
3. Opportunity - Unsure. Need the SH blessing. Maybe check with his wunderful girlfriend.

Woo hoo!

Looking forward to it.

I installed the Siebenrock cylinders and 9.5:1 pistons a few years back. A nice improvement over what was a pretty ratty motor beforehand. These are just the domed pistons, not the high displacement, squish band pistons.

In for damn sure. Maybe I should ride over. Buy the time I get there I may have done enough dirt miles to pretend to be competitive!

I just did the deed this morning.

They technically should have them in stock, but are currently out... I still put my money down. Next: Enduralast and the Odyssey.

I owe you guys some fresh pictures... took some last night, but am obligated to write some column stuff before I can get to this.



Stickers? love it. PM with an address, anybody.
T-shirts? Love it, too. I want one. Where do I get one?

Ya think they'd let me run the track after the races at Sandblast? Do they do a free ride at some point? I might try to run the race next year. Good news for you....you'll know ahead of time there's somebody you can definitely beat!

I've been practicing wheelies in the neighborhood. I've finally gotten to the point that I can ride a wheelie long enough to run out of road. I wore a hole through the skin on my hand pumping the clutch After 2 years, I think I'm finally figuring out to ride this thing!

This might sound obvious, but touring footpegs are terrible for technical riding. I feel like I'm tipping over backwards. And these are the offroady touring pegs so they're narrow and have teeth. In other words, they hurt on a long distance ride AND they give poor performance offroad. I've paid way too much attention to suspension and not enough to ergos. Are you running stock pegs? Nathan at Boxerworks has a little connector that lowers the stock pegs and pushes them back a few inches. I'll get a set, post pictures, and tell ya if they've made me a better bad rider or a worse bad rider.

Fastway foot pegs get my thumbs up! Big, fat, cozy, grippy, etc

I was just looking at that picture! I dug up a peg thread from a while back and saw your recommendation for them.
