Loctite

Good thinking...

I'll be applying loctite to all kinds of KTM bits this weekend! Maybe even get out and "practice" a little...

Failure to lock tight my front skid plate bolts took me out while leading last year, That wont happen again.

Looking at your youtube videos it looks like you'll be near the front!

Guys, I've always RV camped with others at the main camping area. I am on my own this year and would like to bring a large and nice trailer but don't want to fight the road in or the other people saving spots for their friends when towing into the site. Is there an alternate camping area? One a little ways away? Like at the white knuckle site? I live about 4 hours away so a morning drive would be harsh.

I had heard of guys being seriously injured from eating their windshields riding rough ground.

But, I didn't think much about it until mine scraped off the vent cover from the top of my Shoei Hornet. That got my attention.

Also remove the passenger pegs as they can trap your ankle in a mishap. Several nasty injuries have been reported.

All signed up for the poker run and race. Have to figure out a rear tire and choices are a bit limited in the 140/80-17 or maybe 130/90-17 sizes. Either planning a D606 mounted up at home or I understand Webb Powersports will be there to mount up Kenda rubber. Maybe a K760 will work...and the price seems decent.

Yup...You can camp on the North baseball fields in town. On grass. Smooth. No rocks. Level.

For a nominal donation.

Windscreens: Your nose's worse enemy

Actually the worse part was having an extremely sensitive nose and a sinus infection at the same time. Inside of the helmet was a real mess after the third sneeze.
