    I did not. Now it's clear why he's so out of control :deal

    on a 4 stroke I wouldn't use it, on the 2 sometimes

    I use my front a lot and tap my rear to get a slide started in some corners.
    Can't just lay off the gas and slide with engine brakin'.

    But, I'm probably doing it wrong.

    I will hit the rear to break it loose, but as soon as I let off the brake it hooks up. There is no continued slide :deal

    I don't use the front much at all. I think I'm riding better this year, especially the second half. And then just as I'm starting to feel pretty good about myself, That pesky 312 goes by me on one wheel :rofl

    It's like Supermoto. Downshift, and dabbing the front to loosen the rear and kicking it out. The last time I was out, I was trying to work on carrying more speed into and through hairpins.

    Sure now everybody is giving their secrets away.
    I just only a couple of weeks ago turned the compression up form the minimun that they were set at for woods riding.
    That sure helped.

    Unknown yet. May need to be home for a possible adoption of the foster dane.
    You guys want to stop and get my truck. Or I bet the ICB could be used also.

    Maybe I can get out, plow, and leave early?

    What day is more needed?

    If we go early enough I can probably help cut a track with the banana. It's not like i sleep or anything. I'll know more later today.

    Sad to say I'm the most organized and level headed of the children to deal with funeral shit.

    I would say Saturday, but since I don't make tracks it's not really up to me :deal

    I would say don't worry about it Lobster. You got enough goin on .
