I found a 60Cx on amazon that I love (and was under $100) for my KLR. If you want to look at it send me a PM. I'm probably about 15 mi from you and I think we may work at the same place.

So based on this, what will be the average speed of TTRU? Bob Barker Rules apply. The closest without going over wins!

I am guessing 12.5MPH.

An inexperienced rider on a GS class machine goes 10 to 15 MPH average.
The speed average is appx 20 MPH for an average rider. So, Day One should take appx 10 hours. 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM. The dinner statrs at 7PM.

He is preloading the hell out of his suspension too, on his pop and goes he taps the front brake and does a slight lean. This transfers weight and a flick of the throttle and a lean back allow the transition of the rebound to pop the front up. This is fairly simple on a dirtbike, a lot more difficult on a GS of any size.

Is that the average speed of the TTRU group or "The" TTRU

I figure, as a group, we should be able to hold about 15....no smokers, quick breaks...with the goal of not being late for dinner

You know you have a dirt addiction when you come home and find a pile of dirt in the driveway and you're happy about it...

Parked the KTM, pulled out the KLX and start playing

She came home and found me playing so she parked the truck in the dirt so I couldn't play anymore...meanie!!






The wife wanted a bigger garden this year so her and her brother are building a nice boxed in set up in the back yard so I knew the dirt was coming.

I seldom use the clutch on my GS's for wheelies its usually straight power but usually I am the loading of the front suspension and using the power to unload it. The starter wheelie is just clutch, throttle, and rear brake for control. It's all about practice no matter what bike you ride.
