    Hmm... Say someone comes and gets out on the trail at a reasonable time, what time would you expect to finish? i have prior obligations the evening of the 27th, around 6pm, and about a 2hr drive.... You think it would be feasible?

    Hour and a half per lap, if you moving right along. 3 hours a lap if your crashing a lot.:D If you don't start the second lap by noon or maybe 1:00PM they don't let you back out.

    Mighty WR rode like a champ at FVOR today. Needs tires though. 8 year old stock tires just don't have what it takes to hook up and stay planted.

    Looking forward to updates on leaf river. Ridden FVOR 3 tines this year already. Be nice to change things up.

    now on a different note, whats it mean when your trans oil (2 stroke so nothing engine related, just transmission) comes out grayish blue? not any metallic debris, just grayish blue goop, kinda like a colored handsoap... would that be a good indication of my clutch being toast, which would be further evidenced by the fact that i can get the clutch to slip considerably even after adjusting the clutch to factory spec? if so, would you reccomend new springs to go with the clutch plates?

    :huh

    the hell you say.

    This, quite conceiveably, may work. And, by the way, I had my WR out in the yard over the weekend (chasing my 13 yo son, who was on my '185), and it ran SUPERBLY, as well, Pilot issues seemingly a thing of the past (I didn't say that, and nobody here heard that).

    The trials at Pearl City (Tito's place) was perfect yesterday. Good turn out of riders, traction couldn't have been better. New scoring system worked excellent and we were all done and sections cleaned by 3pm.

    Very cool! We are going to put together a bunch of us to bring dual sports to one of the upcoming events through the chicagodualsport meetup group.

    keep information going here, or sign up at chicagoduaosport.com and send an invite, would be even better. :clap
    These are great days for spectating and if set up a 15 minute teaching session before the start would probably draw a nice crowd, I would estimate at least 20 would like to learn how to get over a log etc.
