    The engine accounts for much of the additional weight - the bottom end of the engine is much larger and heavier.

    Also fasteners and tons of stuff are just cheaper so they are heavier..

    Every bike maker out there has some cheap models...KLX,TTR,Etc....
    They are cheaper to build and more affordable but will not take a beating as good.

    in other words: Lester3 has the same bikes as you!

    You are more than welcome to ride with us Rich.. I just Binged where Dudley MA was and you are well within striking distance of the Pachaug area rides a straight shot down 395 and especially the rare northern CT/RI area rides. I'm hoping there will be more northern CT/RI border area rides in 2013. Perhaps even a Camp-n-Ride based up there somewhere.. paging JGormley...

    Hun... What!...
    Watching the Pats ... and its gettin past my bedtime... anyhow...

    The more the better... the Northern CT/RI will be hitting Pulaski this year...
    we need to check out Elbow Rock Road..and parts north of Pulaski...
    seems like there are more trails in this area to be discovered...
    also I will be doing a ride starting near Rt 7 and 295 and making it way north and west. from there...

    Being from Dudley have you ever made you way on the Old Connecticut Turnpike as it runs through your area?

    Got a friend with a big back yard right off 146 on MA/RI border, we camp there once a year during a scooter rally, perhaps he wouldn't mind another camping weekend if we behave. He rides an LC4 640 and 950 Adventure, in fact it was his influence that got me to buy my 640 and those are his dirt wheels on my bike... all I'm saying he is practically one of us

    Most of us enjoy re-living the day in photos and videos. Your point is well taken though... we all need to consider the "exposure" of our videos and pics. I took my last video down and will re-edit before posting again.

    I get to get out every few weeks, once a month... watching the vids is a good reminder to do it again, soon... also seeing others do dumb shit makes me feel better about myself and the dumb shit that I do

    Righto, but on those few days that we cannot ride because of life's little obligations (or repairs), it is great to get a surrogate fix from the picts and vids. It is also great to see my friends having fun and maybe learn a thing or two.

    Yeah, routes and exact locations should be left to the imagination, but keep the videos and picts coming.:clap:clap:clap
