For that, I might just join the AMA.
Big bikes or little bikes ??
Last year, they really wanted the big bikes...and had the course designed for the pigs.
Erik.....Dan said you are so screwed! Your 625 has a high likelihood of killing you with all the power it's making now. Oh and the suspension should work way better as well.
Really does it matter....either way it should be a good time and its relatively close.
...rookie question for all you single-track riders w/ handguards. What's the best way to install the full bar type on the throttle side? I have seen some cut off the little lip on the end of the grip, roll back the rubber a little, take a sliver off the throttle tube, and install that way. However, I am worried about dirt and crap getting between the tube and the bars, given the guard bar doesn't cover the hole 100%...if that makes any sense.
Here's a shot of how I did the clutch side. I left the lip on there, heated up a socket and pressed into the center of the end cap (to score out a perfect circle as a template), and then tapped out the center with a drywall cutting tip on the Dremel. It was nerely perfect, but there was a small opening that the Cycra bar didn't cover...so I used a black neoprene washer to seal it off to help reduce the amount of dirt/water that gets in there.
That being said, I am just not seeing how to seal up the throttle side, given I can't have rubber on rubber washers binding and sticking the throttle. I am 99% sure I need to remove the rubber lip, but I just envision a big gapping hole that lets in tons of dirt between the throttle tube/bars.
Dana, if I'm reading the route right...we will pass right by Old House Winery...Karen has two bottles of wine ready for pick up...may need to make a small stop to keep MaMa happy
18351 Corkys Lane, Culpeper, VA 22701
3 miles up Stevensburg Road (Rt. 663) from Rt 3
Loading Maps....Comms gear charging... almost ready to roll
wonder if AJ will have his bike by then....
When I installed the Cyras on the DR, I cut off the ends orange ends of the pillow grips off each side. I seem to spend a lot of time picking it up off the ground. So far, no throttle binding to report despite snorkeling through the dirt like a submarine.
I didn't check, but it's possible. I don't really care where we go tomorrow, I just need to get off the peninsula. So, lead on wherever! [Bonus points for not breaking the bottles though]
Full disclosure, I've not "test-ridden" the route. It was a compile from two sources. We may love or hate it!
Getting things in order now. Just mounted the new wheels and checked tire pressure. Breaking for dinner and then I'll get the gear and GPS ready.
Somebody give me a link to your spot for tomorrows ride. If the Directv install guy gets done ahead of schedule, I can catch up.
See post #2 for the SPOTWALLA page. Both Blaster and J4S are registered spots.
just cut the ends off the grip and the throttle tube if needed. it's a non-issue.
if it gets a little gritty remove bark buster slide the whole throttle assembly off and clean. i end up doing that about once a year but i like my controls to feel perfect.
when are you guys thinking of doing the TWVT.
May 4 - 12
I've got the tet file but dont have any way to look at it handy, what's the distance of the ride?
The Trans West Virginia Trail is much longer, but we only have time for about 1600 miles. Mileage breakdown on post #3 of Trans West Virginia Trail--Take 2 thread link
Leaving soon to have Bfast at Wawa....Dorito will stay behind to pick up Matt and then head South. Make sure you fill up this morning.
Made it to lunch .. original local wasn't open when we got here so we are next door at the Salamander
