    Ok and now for the next question. This bike has been sitting for over a year and I have changed the plug, gas and cleaned the carb. It runs poorly at my altitude 9,300 ft and I would like any suggestions from anyone on jetting. Thanks

    I think they're 7.5, but the tags are so worn out I can't read them anymore.

    They are not quite as dirty as they appear in the pic.

    FYI, if anyone has kid gear that needs a home, I'm happy to act as a collection site for Larimer county NYPUM. :deal

    I'll be up in Woodland Park next week.

    Hi Paul,

    I'll be up there with Hellsickle, staying Thanksgiving morning thru Saturday afternoon. We'll be staying at the Country Lodge, next to City Market. Riding 717 area on Friday and Saturday morning, and can hook up anytime during that timeframe. If that doesn't work for you, let us know, and we can make other arrangements.

    Cheers,
    Will

    Still collecting gear? LittleTex just keep going up and up, so I've got a good set of Thor boots, pants, gloves, and a couple of jerseys that need a new home. Youth medium mostly.

    In Longmont, happy to deliver wherever.

    I know this thread is usually for the younger adv kids, but my 17yr old son did something on Saturday that I just gotta share. At the beginning of the summer, he was just learning and could barely navigate trails and barely keep me in sight. He followed me to the races all year and started entering the hare scrambles with me in June. The first few races, I had to wait for the sweep crews to bring him in from whatever predicament he had gotten himself into. He was usually upside down somewhere. He started finishing races towards the end of the year.

    He rode my WR450F until late this fall. Then, I let him take my YZ450F for a ride. His eyes lit up and I never got it back. He started hanging out with his MX buddies and hitting Aztec MX track for practice every weekend. The 1st round of the Winter Combat Series he got 8th in the open beginner class. I was pretty proud of him, but in the back of my head, I thought I could still wax the boy.

    I picked up a new 450SXF a couple of weeks ago and Satruday I went out to Aztec with him and his buddies. I'm no MX'er by any means, but I've always been able dust the boy. After an hour or so of riding and getting used to my new bike, he and his buddies pulled me over and we lined up for a 3 lap "race".

    I got the "holeshot" since they are all on 250F's, but within a lap, most of them had passed me, tripling and doubling along. On the 2nd lap, on the back straight, they have an uphill tabletop that I just have no desire to try and clear. I do my best "Bubba Scrub", get back on the gas, and jump off the back side. As I'm "scrubbing" I hear a bike over my head to my right. There were a bunch of bikes on the track so it didn't surprise me that I was getting passed. I looked over to see who it was....my son was jumping over my head!

    Little bastard passed me and left me! I held it open as long as I dared, but I never caught him. Everytime we hit one of those double jumps, I backed off and he just pinned it. I guess all that practicing with his buddies is paying off! Even though I was pissed that he passed me, I was just as proud to see him taking off and flying on his own.

    The worst part? For his birthday in October I bought him a GoPro. Of course he had it rolling when he passed me. He's looking down and giggling at me. The look on my face when I realized it was him....priceless! Stupid GoPro....and no I am NOT going to post the video here! :D

    24 deg outside, perfect riding weather (if you are 12). He got to make fresh tracks at IMI, and probably did twenty laps around the short oval track. Happy kiddo.

    I don't have a pic but I have to say, there is nothing better than coming home from work and seeing your 5 year old girl come flying around the corner, washing out the front end, (socks on a tile floor), landing on her tush, jumping back up like nothing happened, and running into your arms. The excitement in her eyes is genuine. She really does love me!!!

    Happy New Year folks!!!

    Thanks. I am very proud.

    The last round of the Winter Combat Series was cold as all hell. He was on the start line with his GoPro running. I didn't know it was on. I was giving him the whole, "be careful, stay upright" speech and he noticed I was shivering. He says, "you ok?" and me, not knowing the camera was on replied "yeah, but I really gotta pee!"

    He did put that one on Youtube. His friends have been texting me "I gotta pee!" ever since. Sheesh!! The things we do for our kids.....:rofl

    Very touching. :cry

    Prepare yourself for the possibility of things being different 10 years from now. Various studies have shown that the intelligence of parents reaches a minimum when the kids are 15YO. :deal

    oh please!

    When kids turn 15 they want to be just like enduro-ince.

    The 15 year old neighbor kid call's enduro-ince to let him know he will be late getting home.

    Dog's are to masters as 15 year olds are to enduro-ince.

    When playing the latest video game the most common online chat is: What would Enduro--ince do in this situation.

    Greco boy is down :cry Crashed and broke his arm above the wrist during the Winter Combat Series today at Aztec. Emergicare put him in a splint. Seeing the ortho Dr on Monday.

    Broke my heart to see him in pain. Innocent crash, lost the front end after a right hand turn. Put his hand down to catch himself and the handlebar hit him in the forearm. Tuff little turd got up, picked up the bike and tried to get it fired. Pain stopped him in his tracks.
