Still some snow up on Engineer Pass
Are those this year? Things are opened up?
Any luck with Hurricane or California? (I think they plow Eng/Cin).
Those photos are from yesterday
The road grater was at work on the road down by Silverton. So it was nice and smooth until the pass itself. (where we have decided that my gearing SUCKS for this right now time for a -1+2) Found myself on a bit of a ledge on one of the pass switch backs with not enough grunt, or traction to really get the bike to climb. Its these moments of shear terror thinking you are going over backwards off a 1,000 cliff that keeps motorcycling fun It was also over heating on the climb....so dual fans are also no the list.
Statements like that make me wonder if I should convert my 990 into a 100% road bike! Anybody got a little 250 they want to sell me cheap?
Been thinking the same thing...maybe a KTM 350 with a 3 gal tank?
Closer pic of the chain
The ride bell was SUPPOSED to prevent things like this!!!
Look how far the sprocket is from the spokes. Talon have adapted a narrow wheel to fit the Adventure by making an overwide sprocket carrier. That cannot be right?
Ha ha yes I know
How you doing Jeff??
My Rally Jacket looks the same as DeeGees, just not as CLEAN.
Just a little bit of snow......
I think I'd worry more about your riding .....
To be fair to my statement and the 950, my bike has the 17/42 stock gear combo and a stock set of Perelli Scorpion tires at high street pressure on it right now. Even a slight change in gearing to 16/42 or 16/44 would have made a huge difference, especially with knobbies at trail pressers.
Bahh.. you'll love Engineer Pass David!
It's Black Bear Pass that you'll shit your pants on
Been down Black Bear in a Jeep! The cover photo of the 2005 "Jeep Calander" is me going up Pokipsey Gultch......there is a good reason I chose Engineer Pass for a solo trip on the KTM fully loaded
All run trails of the area......here is the edit with the Jeep cover photo!
I think my first attempt at Black Bear will be on my Specialized Stumpjumper
Hey Pat, what happened to the Orange crash bars ?

Replaced with the stainless steel units when I ordered the bash and pannier racks. Thought it matched the racks better and avoided the future scrape > rust > paint cycle on a high contact part.
Plus... when you ride with a young buck who has sustained serious head trauma and flies the jolly roger wrap, you know there are going to be some flying W's and munched signal lights in store!

What are you trying to say? You're the bad influence that got me onto a 100+ HP dirt bike in the first place!!!!

Works better for me at home if it's your fault, so let's just go with that.
