If someone feels like trying this out, are there any newbie codes, or hints for setting up an account?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm
I may have missed the point to put that code in. I created an account though, if I did, oh well. :) I'll just prove my n00b skillz the old fashioned way.

Beyond styling, do you guys have the kinds of bushes out there (or roosts from the bike ahead of you) to warrant the plastic guards that mount to the actual aluminum hand-guards?

The bike looks sweet.

Wait... where are the front turn signals?

Yeah.. riding tight single track they've saved my hands countless times when you smack a tree.
They're also good for protecting your hands from the wild mountain sheep




Turn signals? My left arm is my turn signal

Colorado is pretty cool for how easy it is to license a dirtbike. You have to have a headlight (anything qualifies - even those 5 watt POS lights), a tail light, a brake light (actuated off of either brake), 1 mirror, a horn and DOT tires. That's it. Pay $20 and they'll inspect it, issue you a title, and you can register/plate it. It is pretty fun to blast down the highway at 75mph on a 2-stroke


That's why I bought the XCW instead of the EXC. In Colorado it was easier to make the XCW street legal then it is to take all the emissions crap & such off of the EXC (not to mention you get the unlocked ECU ).

p.s. this isn't tight - but you can see the marks on the trees from the handguards on this singletrack:

p.s. they're also important for saving your hands and levers in the rocks... when you get it wrong and toss your arse over the bars and into the pickies going over obstacles like this:

Those pics look like Michigan upper peninsula. I little snowy for bikes right now

Ok, I got the new system up n running. The old PC was hitting 6-15 fps with the graphics set really low. New one is right around 65 fps with everything on medium. I still have to adjust all teh recommended settings though. I just got TS set up as well.

I even lost 3 battles in a row! Too many distractions now

apparently everyone is a losing machine. glad it's not just me

And that headlight setup looks damn goofy Geek looks like the bike got punched in the face

nice bike though. I love my 2strokes in the woods for the light weight, but I'm thinking of another 4t for ice doody.

ps: I said doody

Haven't got to play all day, but I have tomorrow off. Maybe I'll set up TS and accept the invite to FYYFF tomorrow. Either way, I'd love to do some more platooning if anybody has the day off. When I platooned with Jeff for a night I got up to 51% win. Then I played the next day and was able to drop myself back down to 50%. Noobingitup! I am adoring my new T20 and M12. Almost at the T21 too so I can grind up to the T71. Playing the M7 again has been a blast. I am rambling and I'll just head to bed now.

It's a whole new game now. Unfortunately, my vid card has a mini HDMI cable, and I only had full sized It's working just fine with the DVI cable at least.

2 for 6 last night. Not only were the teams terrible, MM kept putting the SU100 BELOW arty as the last tank on the team. The guns iffy against tier 7's so I just kept firing HE.

I finally won a game in it though.

One of the more memorable ones was Siegfried Line. We had 9 tier 10's per side, 4 arty per side and 2 scouts. In my M40/43 I got to kill a low health BatChat25 that was tucked into a corner thinking he was safe spotting ou r heavies. I splashed him for the kill. We ended up winning that one, but it went the whole 15 minutes.

I keep saving screen shots but forget to upload them.
