    The off road portion was exactly the 15 miles you promised...:clap

    As a bonus 3 or 4 of them were sandy ... :puke1 :cry

    Thanks for the pics and video.

    Hope you get your bike dialed in easily. Thinking back, I had a similar problem on my daughter's ATV (Suzuki too) and found a vacuum / vent hose that goes towards the carb came off the air box. It ran for shit till I reconnected it then all the problems went away.

    Once again, GREAT RIDE !!!!

    Thanks for the tip. I'll get her fixed, but she wouldn't start AT ALL today.

    Time to get to know my bike a little better!

    You weren't there...but we talked about you. :evil :lol3

    Thanks for putting the ride together Shoco. Hope you get the bike sorted out. I'd say check the airbox...or maybe the charcoal canister for emissions is full of fuel from the tip over??? Maybe drain the float bowl...maybe some junk clogging a jet???

    Some nicely set up XR's R and L there. Aprilia was cool as well as the Beemer. Sito represented for all you 950/990 guys.

    Got to see Errin's new bike (SWEET!) and ride with his old bike (and Joel's new bike).

    The last section of fire road was fun. Little rollercoaster through the trees...and lunch was great...nice choice!

    Maybe next time we can do Rincon again. Think everyone would like it, or finding some more new trails to explore would be even better!

    Thanks again for setting up the ride "Shoco" Lunch was great and they made a damm good Margarita!:1drink

    Now that the weather is starting to cool off I'm hoping we can plan more rides like this one.

    Here's one I'm Thinking in the future: Rincon to Santa Clara

    Start time 8:am Rincon up to Newcombs leave Newcombs by 11:30am

    Newcombs to Lynxs, Lynxs to Santa Clara. This would be an all day trip with very little pavement (except a little on ACH). Newbies could skip Rincon and meet us at Newcombs go around lynxs to Santa Clara if they wanted to.

    Tentative date would be Oct 6 of 7 ? any interest :ear
