    Good ride today! I’ll make sure my GoPro is charged for next time. Conditions were perfect today, couldn't have asked for better.

    Very nice ride today, gents. I hope to see everyone at next weekend's Turkey Run DS.

    I'm in for the Turkey Run, where are we all meeting up? I got one lousy picture today, I'll post it later. Had a great time though, really glad I got out and I love the new bike. Thanks for having me along!

    Found this video on the "Epic Rides" area. One of the best dirt videos and water crossings I've seen!



    And the sound track for this and episode 8 are fantastic. Here's a music video source for some of it:

    55 and Sunny Saturday. So who wants to ride? I think I'm gonna blow off the Turkey Run on Sunday. 43 degrees, yuk.

    I'll be out Saturday if my Cogent shock gets here on Friday and have I have the install finished later that night. Should make a big difference.

    I was, I rode out through Atco to Atsion in the morning around 9:30 alone, met up with a few guys from here, then rode back alone, I guess around 2?

    Did you get fork emulators as well? Can’t remember if you said they had already been done.

    Hmmm... My only reservation about the Sunday event is that the Eagles are playing at 1pm. Add 55 degrees and this decision becomes easier.

    I ordered Cogent DDC's with heavier springs/fork oil which are very similar to emulators but they won't be here until next week. I'm interested to see how much of a difference the shock alone will make, I've read it emphasizes how bad stock front is.

    The Cogent shock should make a huge difference, worth every penny. While riding behind you last Sunday, i saw your stock suspension at its limit quite often. I'll see you guys at the Turkey Run this Sunday.

    My riding group is committed to the Sunday ride so I am out for Saturday. We're old and slow but not afraid of the cold. :lol3

    Riding both days.... Dropping the rig off at the start, and free riding Saturday. Riding the course Sunday. Probably big bike both days, but 450 is coming too!
