    It was a 2009 with 4100 miles. Looking for a 2011-12 530exc or 300xcw with low time. need to plate it.

    Synthetic oil seems to weep out of the seals more than dyno oil. Nothing to worry about.

    Some raw footage from my first NECC Hare Scramble. I raced C-Open class today thinking it would start me off behind the C-200 class (I thought that's were C-Open started at Barnes Way) and I wouldn't get stuck behind the C-Seniors or vets, giving me a better chance at taking C highpoint. Well the plan failed, C-Open was last to start for all the classes.

    The camera angle is a bit low, mainly because I still haven't learned to look ahead as far as I should be. I'll try to put together a more interesting version throughout the week.

    I thought I saw your bike on c's list. There are plated 300's that pop up every now and then but you gotta act fast as the move pretty quick. If I were you I'd be on the look out for a 500. From all the reviews the 500 is way better than the 530.

    500 would be nice, but I don't think I can find a used one around here. I'm on the lookout....

    Question for normal Pachaug Trail people:

    Are there other entrances into the trails rather than going in the main entrance the CT DEP website gives? I am coming from Ashaway, RI and would prefer something a little further South East.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can meet up with the loop anywhere it comes to a road, which is a lot.
