See post 609. Dales pale ale.
We have a bunch of 5 gallon containers we will fill up and have available, if people can just give me $10 Thursday I think that would be the easiest.
Starting to get excited
Got a 200mi preride in this weekend. My non-dot tires are broke in.
I'll be riding the outlaw trail on this shindig
NON DOT tires, how the definition of outlaw has changed Maybe we should get some biker gang patches
I also answer to "biker trash"
You know what they say, Chris. When non-DOT tires are outlawed, only outlaws will have non-DOT tires.
This is where the FS directed me to for current conditions in the Abajos.

I sent out an update to the email addresses I had listed for everyone that registered. If anyone did not get it, PM me with an email.
Thanks for taking pics, I got some video to post, all DS ridin so aside from hauling ass on Hwy 4 and Akasy's cliff surfin it's not real exciting
Sounds perfect. Thanks again. Gettin' started on gettin' ready!
Just checked the 10 day forcast, looks like highs in the upper 60s and sunny Lows in the 40s, brrr.
I finished all the lights and wiring on the 450exc. Kept the rear turn signals, the H/L headlight, and the TT Vapor dash unit. I'm gonna do a shakedown ride this Friday. It seems to be ok from the limited riding in the shop neighborhood.
If something strange pops up it onto the 690. It certainly doesn't have the power. Of my CRF 450 but is good for a dual sport ride.
What gearing are you all running?
This has 14/50, and I don't know these bikes good enough to know if that is ok for this higher speed riding.
I think you should be good for this with your current gearing. My 525 will be 15-45 but with the pulling power of the 525 I'm not really concerned with rocky hills. Ridefreak is really quick in the single track but is much more mellow on open fire type roads.
14/50 = 3.57 which seems a little low Bash, like woods gearing. I was running 15/48 (3.20) but changed it to 15/45 (3.00) for mileage. Now the bike's a little lazy on the bottom but for DS it'll be ok. Like Akasy said, I'm skeerd of this thing so I take it easy
You don't have our mileage concerns so I'd think anything that will give you a comfortable cruise with the ability to jump up to 60~65 sustained would be ok. On the 525 that'd be around 15/48.
Thanks for the info on gearing for these RFS bikes. I 'll grab a 15t front and see what that does, keeping the 50t rear.
The tank is a 15 liter, or 4 gallons. I'll bring a couple fuel bottles just in case, I have a few 1.5 liter bottles somewhere. Going up to the Wolfman open house on Saturday, see what they have for luggage.
I'll let you'all know how the shakedown ride sorts out.
Get a new crush washer for the sprocket. These are one use no rebound crush and they help maintain tension on the seal for the countershaft. Dirtworks or someone sells a reuseable one for $25 or so--I just use the $5 KTM ones.
Inside info, thats why I like this place, thanks AKASY.
Why not take the 690 for this ride?
