    What’s up guys, looking for some guys to ride with. One of the two friends that hardly ride anymore just sold his bike so now I am pretty much riding solo now, my days off to ride are Thursday’s and Friday. Although on Monday I start a two week vacation so my schedule is open to any day. Looking to go up tomorrow if anyone is able to go, I was thinking Jose basin but I am open to go where ever. Hit me up .

    I'm headed out to the desert this weekend. By chance does anyone know of a place in Ridgecrest to fill up the trailer with potable water? I'd rather not pull all that extra weight from here.

    Went to central camp area yesterday, rode all day and found a bunch of single track, had a blast now I know why all you guys love riding this area. Did 007 for the first time and it was a little nasty in there but it was fun
    Here’s a few pics

    Anyone local interested in a height adjustable motorcycle hitch rack? The hitch size is 2".

    The hand crank raises and lowers the tray so it's really convenient for loading the bike at the end of the day when you're tired. No need for an additional ramp unless your hitch is really high. The tray can also slide towards and away from your bumper. This will allow you to keep it as close as possible (to reduce the bending moment seen at the hitch) while still clearing bumpers or handlebars to the rear window.

    Not sure what the actual load rating is but I've used it with a pretty heavy Harley without any problems. Unless you have some ridiculously heavy 1500cc mega cruiser you won't have a problem using this rack for your bike. $75 and its yours with free delivery in the fresno, clovis, coarsegold, east madera areas. If you live further and still want it I'd be willing to meet you somewhere convenient for both of us.

    Anyone have any recommended KTM mechanics in the Fresno/Visalia/Bakersfield area? I’m picking up a ktm 350 exc-f today and it’s getting close to its 120 hour service.

    +1 For Moto One. I would stay away from Clawsons whom is now the KTM dealer.

    Also realize the KTMs are super easy to work on (like most dirt bikes) and most of us do maintenance ourselves.

    I took my 640 adventure completely apart but I just haven’t gotten around to putting it back together :D. Just glancing through the service section of the owner’s manual for the 350 exc-f has me cringing at the idea of “replacing all the engine bearings”. I know the internet has different opinions on the subject but the fact that it’s written in the owners manual has me a bit freaked out, no lie.

    The original plan was to rebuild it. I’ve also considered parting out. I’m kind of indifferent about it at the moment.
