    Did the MWXC race at Martinsville yesterday, and to say that Indiana needs some rain would be quite the understatement. The course was set up great, save the fact there was 14 inches of talcum powder dust to deal with. The downhills were hell, one uphill impossible (for me) without drama. Lost a bark buster, blackened two finger tips (on different hands), twisted knee on a steep downhill high-side, lost the clutch, bent brake lever, had to run last two laps with bent bars and twisted forks. In short had many get offs, but had a great time.
    On another note, I predict admission to RedButt for des Nations will be $300. I used to love that place till they went Hollywood.

    Man it was brutal, even in the deep, dark woods it was powder dust and, at times, zero visibility. In the woods, that is, never mind the Sahara field sections. I hope your dual sport has some irrigation. IXCR that weekend, so I'm out there.

    Myself, GrandMasterMike and MXRuss, we rode LBL a few weeks back. It was really good as far as dirt condition goes. Finally got to ride the 950 "off-road". Easy to override it and get off big. Although it was remarkably nimble to be so big. Rides like a big dirt bike.

    sounds like socal to me... i was riding my mountain bike the other day and it was super powdery and slippery. I remember a few years ago there was an MWXC with similar conditions.. Dust dust dust and ROCKS. Hard riding.

    Hi guys,

    A reminder,

    For any of you that are looking for something fun to do next weekend, there will be a big open house at Niehaus Cycles on Friday and Saturday, Oct 13 and 14. The Yamaha demo truck will be there both days with many new models, including the all new Yamaha Venture touring bike. On Saturday we will also have another Adventure Demo day. Several riders attended that last year and had a good time. I will be leading 25 mile back road tours on the shops adventure style bikes made by Honda and Yamaha. There will also be a pork chop sandwich lunch. Details on the attached flyer. Hope to see you there.

    That is true. Very true. I'm also usually faster on someones else bike for some reason. Probably the power-shifts.

    That wasn't so bad when I turned the music off. :D

    Are they running Recluse clutches? The engines didn't seem to die when they crashed.
