Sun in the air!!!! If you can guarantee that, I'm there!!!
looks like I'll have the woods to myself if I can get out there on Sunday.
Ahem! Are you implying something? -- a new ride, or were you going to see what that Bandit can do off pavement?
Works with a Yammi.

Anyone ever try this?
My favorite rain forcast. NOAA says 80% rain Sat. I'm imagining broken showers, maybe a bit much for a long ride? Sunday looks better, but then again, I don't worship the pigskin.
I'm out of town this weekend, but would like to do a half-day ride tomorrow morning. The below link is somewhat useful to get an hour by hour short-term forecast. The second link's radar image shows what's coming. PM me if you've got the day off Fri also and would like to meet at 9 am.
I did a half-day ride once... twelve stitches later, I was practically good as new.
So it turns out that I have Monday, Presiden't Day, off of work. Anyone else not working Monday? The current forecast is saying dry. Let's ride. Let's make it a more or less full-day deal as opposed to our recent half-day outings. I'm flexible on start time and route. Meet 9 am, in NW?
WB, you got that DR buttoned back up? Need carb?
Still need the carb... I am too broke to do much with the project, so I am taking it slow and doing the 'free' or cheap stuff. Got the kickstand tab fixed, so now I am just focusing on painting and cleaning.
My goal is March 6 to have it done, but that depends on how much overtime I can squeeze onto this paycheck. I'll be looking to pick up the carb next weekend probably. Sorry for the delay.
Don't be a tease, instigate a ride!
Hey all you studs-I need to put a tool kit together for riding both the YZ and the KTM off-road and curious what you boys carry? I have a Camel-back that I use for Mtn biking so I assume I can stuff whatever in that, but I'm curious what specific tools you guys carry. Thanks
Preface: I am not a stud, and these other guys have ridden and broken down in the woods more than I have.
Tire\tube things as appropriate, a big pair of adjustable pliers, a few spanners that I know are common on whatever the bike is, a tool to remove the sparkplug (sometimes a length of hose is the best thing... doubles as fuel line) and one of these:
And then the most commonly used thing: zip ties.
Here's some reading material for ya:
To add to what others have posted. When doing maintenance and repairs on your bikes only use the tools in your kit. This way you will add and remove tools that work or do not and end up with a condenced kit that you know will do what you need done. I tend to stay away from multi-tools as they are only as reliable as the weakest tool in the set.
That said, I tend to carry way more than I need.
I'm riding out to Rogers/Browns around 11:00 Sunday for some dirt roads and trails if anyone wants to join.
It was a nice day for a ride in the woods, not too slippery and not dusty. Managed to avoid the usual riff raff and rode 60 miles of blue diamond and logging roads between Rogers and Jordan Creek.
That sure looks fun....
I need a helmet cam. The best pics would be the places you could not stop and need to hold on with both hands.
