    Sorry if this offends anyone but that does not surprise me. Meridian is crap. They have a horrible history with the BBB and have an even worse reputation with the military. Don't get me wrong, joes will still buy stuff if they do not know better but once word gets around that your a ripoff on post, Soldiers will stop coming. They are not competitive with area dealers. Their theory appears to be, "If you don't want to pay our price then go somewhere else." Unfortunately for them, most people do.

    I have only been back in fayetteville for a year now. Anybody in the local area know some good dirt roads to ride or some sand pits to just play around in?

    Nobrakes, Trust and Tarheel Wheeler, thanks for the info on Tubliss. Sounds like it may not be worth the trouble and expense. And I read on the web site that the system is only for off-road... I ride my Beta a fair amount on the pavement getting from the house to dirt or on twisties in the mountains. Gonna have to try the trials tire next time at Brushy Mtn or Uwharrie. Thanks again.

    Happy New Year! :clap:clap

    It was too bad. It started out cold but warmed up nicely. The sand out there was perfectly wet, so it made for great conditions. I actually worked up a sweat and had to remove layers. The DR is one heavy pig.

    Skools in session....

    Anyone see this post by BC in the Sandblast Rally thread?

    "Who would be interested in a rally riding clinic on Thursday prior to the rally? Riding tips, terrain reading tips, time keeping strategies and practice, practice, practice. Cost would be around $100 for the day. PM if interested"

    Wowsers. He was venue shopping near Patrick. Too bad area 52 wasn't in the mix.

    Hopefully ill be back in the spring. Had to take some time off. Had to pull the engine out of the 450 exc. Need to have the head done and a new timing chain installed. I have zero time to do this. Pulled the engine and its sitting in the garage. I'm in Cary and who do I want to work on this? Thanks guys.
