    Actually the main jet was plugged and after cleaning that AND adding the filter it ran perfect! Lol I will always run one from now on!


    That video just slays me! I love when Scott comes over and points out where your helmet is! And the giant sucking sound you make when the silt balloons out reminds me of Arnold running out of air on Mars in Total Recall.....

    The sucking sound was the wind knocked out of me!!! The only good thing was that it taught me NEVER EVER breath when you hit the silt!!!!:rofl I had a git off just like this one during the race about RM 30 or so in deep silt on a corner and just held my breath as long as I could and blew out as hard as I could to get everything out of the helmet:D

    At the first rider change Sue took my helmet and Goggles to clean them, as we were driving to the next rider change Sue makes the comment "Boy it looks like you really eat some shit didn't you":rofl All I could say is yes I did:lol3

    Hey Everybody - Sorry it's taken me so long to post up a ride report. I've been preoccupied with a family emergency. As an apology for my tardiness...I put together a funny video of Brett's dirt naps.

    This day it was just me and Brett pre-running. Brett was riding Allan's bike and Allan's bike was malfunctioning. Allan won't admit that his bike was malfunctioning because he didn't put in an inline-fuel filter. He swears it was because his air filter. Either way...it made Brett crash more than usual.

    Unless Brett was increasing throttle, it'd sputter...then load the front end. And even I know that it's not good to load the front end when you're riding in silt.

    Brett and I were both were wearing chest mounted GoPro's. I chopped the film back and fourth between my camera and Brett's camera. I thought it was kinda cool to have the same two crashes from each of our perspectives.

    Scott's Cam - Bike with 1 light
    Bress's Cam - Bike with 2 lights (Allan's Bike)

    Enjoy...and of course...I apologize for the language.

    I just read some of the other posts and realized that Brett already added this video. Sorry for the re-post. But this video is a little different...since it has both of our footage of the same crashes.

    Still...enjoy..because I have.
