    ... I broke the F8 Sunday--Oaky Mtn. OHV, I guess (can't let my own son outrun me on my own thumper, now can I).
    Headed out to work this morning and the shock sounds like it is full of rocks and washers--swingarm soaked with fluid :cry. Oh well, I reckon my suspension upgrade decision has been made for me:wink:

    No, Mitch. This weekend is our big spring festival here in town. I get tons and tons and tons of brownie points for hanging around town for that each year.:D Plus, it's loads of fun!

    Thinking about going to Highland Park next week, I can't find a place to ride the 450 at all around the house. Just wondering if anyone has been on weekday's? I am thinking that you would have the place just about to yourself, am I right with that or just dreaming? Also has anyone had them do any suspension work on a bike?

    Thanks, and if anyone is free during the week and would like to go do some riding at Highland let me know. I am located in Thomaston. :freaky

    You are correct you will probably have the place to yourself if that is what you want. Maybe a few other riders, but not many. Even on weekends when they are pretty busy, you still don't run into many people back on the trails, only the perimeter trails and MX tracks.

    KTM World definitely does great work on suspension. We had them rebuild the suspension on my wife's KTM 125 and set it up for her weight and they did a great job.

    It isn't like I want to have it all to myself I just don't like it when a place is so packed you can't ride. That is good news about the suspension my bike needs it:D

    Thanks

    KTM world/HP does a great job on suspension. i've had the "works' package done on my forks and really seems to help. the faster I go the better it feels. They have done two other friends bikes as well.

    during the week it's a lot of fun, hardly anyone there, but there will be others there. As BL said, even on the weekends when there are a lot of people there, you really don't see anyone on the trails because they are all one way, and there's a lot of singletrack and ATV trails to get your wander on.

    if you head out there during the week, let me know when you go, I might be able to meet you there.

    Hey Speedy, I just talked to KTM World and they will not do my bike due to the fact it is a Honda. Right now they are only working on KTM's. That sucks, I am trying to get the Honda to ride like my KTM:D I have only be out on the Honda one time and it needs some work, I know it needs new springs for my fat but, I think that the rear will be OK if I can get it setup right.

    I think that I am going to be going on the 8th would that be a good day for you to get out and ride for a bit? Let me know if another day would work better for you, I am free M-T-W right now but might get T and F. Hope we can get together and ride!

    Brett, check out the suspension tuning forum over on Georgia Offroad. Mark Klein ("MX Tuner") is the other guy who's recommended most. I haven't used him but I've heard a lot of good things about him.

    HTH, Jeff

    thumbs up for MXTuner. he'll get your honda sorted out. didn't realize was wasn't orange. ;)

    I'll check on the 8th. it's my birthday, might be a good day to go play for an afternoon. Have you been to HP before? I just got back from a few days in West Virginia and had a blast up there on a bunch of singletrack. Looking forward to playing on some of the HP trails and see how it goes. Been there a few times. Friedduck, why don't you join us?? ;)

    No I have never been, went to the web site and took a look at some of the videos. It looks as if it would be more fun then DurhamTown. Just let me know what will work for you.

    We have these http://www.cardosystems.com/scala-rider, the Q2 multiset. Been using them for three years, and they have been flawless. Bluetooths with both your phones, too.

    My wife and I have also been users of the Q2 systems for about 3 years. Have been very happy with them, but have been yearning to have music over BT stereo which the standard Q2's won't do. Now if you buy the newer Q2 Pro's they will support BT A2DP streaming.

    My Dad has the Scala G4 and I wasn't as impressed with it, especially trying to use it with my Q2. Although they are supposed to be backwards compatible, they are finicky as ever to use together. Now the G4 has more features than the Q2's but with 5 buttons on it, it can be complicated to use and such. The other thing is the G4's haven't had any major firmware update in over a year, but instead the newer G9's are coming out so you can probably bet the G4's are just going to left behind.

    I just bought a Sena SMH10 and I gotta say I'm totally impressed. It has 2 buttons (the jog dial and phone button) and its dead simple to use. Sena has been doing an awesome job upgrading the firmware which they just released V4.0 which added in 4 way capabilities and they now support two HFP connections and 1 A2DP connection. There's a few other things that Sena does that I really like too. One of them being on either of the Scala's if you are in an intercom conversation and you get a phone call or GPS instruction if you have it setup that way, it automatically kills the intercom connection so you can answer the phone, but the other party has no idea where you went.

    On the Sena's the phone ringing is mixed in the background so you can tell your intercom buddy that you are taking the call, then it closes the connection. You have the option two of bringing your intercom buddy into the phone conversation if it happens to be someone they know too. And if you didn't bring them into the phone conversation, once you hangup, the intercom is automatically restored where the G4's you have to do it manually. Just little things like that that Sena paid attention to. And now with the SR10 out to add a 2 way radio into the mix, you can talk to almost anyone out there if you have the same sort of 2 way radio they us. FRS/GMRS/CB/Murs/Ham, etc

    Both the Scala G4's and the Sena SMH10 support 4 way conferencing now, but once again, I like the way Sena handles the pairing of multiple headsets over the way Scala does it.

    Really though, they all work well, just find the one that fits you. If you only need a communication between you and one other person and you don't need BT stereo, then just find an older set of Q2's someone is selling. You can still listen to music, but you have to use the MP3 input. If you want music streaming over BT, just find a pro model of the Q2's.
