Maybe Sunday if I get a new tire on the WR.
I hope to scoot on down the road towards the east this weekend, no destination at all really, just need to ride.
I'm going to be in Westerville tomorrow, you need one picked up?
Also, if I end up goin toward danville, I'm strapping the Rancher 55 on the back of my bike and opening Quarry back up myself....
Yeah, I think there is a tree down across the trail. Or was that another trail?
Just a tree? Or are we talking something Yggdrasil sized?
I have not seen it, but given Matts statement I would think it good sized, since if it was small he'd just roll it off the trail.
It's a decent sized tree. Kinda strange since all the other ones have been cleared off after the Deracho. There is a bypass that is pretty easy for little bikes, but the 650's have to work pretty hard for it. I also think that taking the bypass could be construed as trespassing, as it's off the "road"
Take a chain saw on the back of your bike and get it done.
I think that's what a Rancher 55 is, made by the same company as some bikes you sell.
No I got a tire just need to put it on but thanks for the offer. The chain saw sounds like a good idea.
and now that BMW is selling it to the Pierre AG company which owns the Majority of Cross...
Only in name. That split happened 25+ years ago.
Husqvarnas have been coming in boxes covered in pizza sauce for a very long time.
Tonight's project was to take one of these PWM controllers http://www.ebay.com/itm/180900536285, disassemble it, stash the electronics under the seat of the WRR, wire the output to the $10 Tusk heaters, and have infinitely adjustable variable heated grips. Works fine so far, we'll see how long the electronics last. $15 total in variable heat grips is pretty inexpensive.
There's a working link for ya. I have one of those for making LEDs. So far it's held up indoors.
Got in almost 200 today, did the tour of lakes, (Clenndening, Tappan, Salt Fork, Seneca,) temperature wasn't so bad, road surface pretty nasty at times, dry but salt/cinders/sand everywhere.
I'm using one of these ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-24V-Wir...ing_Parts_and_Accessories&hash=item2a2294879c ) to control the aux lighting on my Sabre. Works very well but the box needs some waterproofing, which is easily accomplished. This unit held up through my deer strike on the Magna and is still going strong nearly a year later.
I only got 60 miles in through the Hocking Hills...same situation with shit all over the roads.
I think I did the same lake tour with Chuck.
Thanks for the link, I did that on my Android tablet, must have messed it up somehow. I'll get a ride in this weekend, if its on the WRR, I'll be able to see how well it works.
Commuted on the WRR this am (it's only 4.5 miles), the Trakmaster stepped out on wet pavement at 35-40 mph. The pucker factor is pretty high during that maneuver. :eek1
Does anyone here have a KTM RFS EXC they've dual sported? If so what kit did you use? I got into a conversation with a guy I know about riding offroad. He told me he had a dirt bike he hadn't rode in a few years that he would like to get part with. Short of it is there should be a 05 KTM 450 EXC in my garage in a week or two. I would like to get a tag for it. I found the appropriate form in this thread (or maybe NEOhio), just curious as to which kit. The factory KTM stuff is $589 from cyclezone.
I have a couple XC riders I know set up to teach me how to kill myself offroad. Hope to try out some off road enduros & maybe even a hare scramble on it this year.
