    Looks like one of the fine brews at the Mother Road Brewery in Flag. Good choice 2Spot. I'm addicted to the Tower Station.
    Heya Sledred!

    Kurt - haven't made it up to Flag much this year and miss their local brews - partial to Mother Road, Dark Sky, Wanderlust....I could go on. Is the White Hills trailwork still happening on the 16th?

    So many breweries, so little time... :-)
    Yes! Dec 16 is first trail day of the year at White Hills. Looking forward to it. Taking the bike to do some riding after lunch. Hope you and C can make it. Hey 4play - I see you moved north. This is in your backyard now, sorta. Bring that 300 and let's ride! Been awhile.

    I'm planning on being there the 16th - is camping allowed there? I was thinking of going up Friday and riding in the afternoon then spending the night to relax a bit before the Xmas rush.... Not sure if C will be able to make it.

    Hmmm, well, not much action on gas tanks and tires. Should we go back to what happened to 2Spot in prison?

    Just remember to pack your rape whistle in the latter case ;)

    Ok, how about suspension? Just put Race Tech dual stage gold valve kit in the forks on my '14 KTM 250. Got help from a friend who had done it once before and is a mechanical engineer - actually, I helped him. Took us about 5 hours. Someone with all the special tools and experience could probably do it in 1. I would not recommend it for someone who hasn't done something like that. Better off sending the forks to them. The instructions assume someone with experience and even then were pretty confusing in places. But, we got it done and had fun. Looking forward to a test ride tomorrow. Supposed to be a high of about 52... perfect. :-)

    Curious why you went that route vs valving the stock pistons?
