    You didn't ask me anything. If it's against the law your not "supposed" to do it. Your point was to try and show how much more you know than anyone else.

    I typed up an explanation about what I said, but decided I didn't need to explain anything to you.

    Seems like a good upgrade without going to the full pumper, with easier install. Did it require any spacers? How much does a XRR carb go for now-a-days?

    Looks like a nice helmet. I just ordered myself a G-max helmet. Tried on my friend's and it fit great. I should have it on Monday, along with that fairing! Can't wait!

    Yep. I'm studying Recreation Resource Management at Oregon State University. Crazy what a couple hikers or a bicycle can do off trail, or even on trail, let alone horses and motorcycles...

    Pretty sure I nailed it with my Turndown version 2.0

    Looks good, sounds good. Not overly loud, but still has a nice BRAAAAAAP to it when you get on it.

    1" i.d. washer with a 1-1/4" pipe for the turndown. One a late design XR600R muffler which has a 2" outlet with the insert removed.

    Anyone know if a snorkel on my carb and a smaller snorkel on the air breather could help or hurt? We've seen kits on Jeep Wranglers although seemingly cosmetic. Just wondering if I run PVC tube upward, maybe rifled, like the Airaid system for pick-up trucks. I'm running the K and N cone filter and a piece of nos tubing without filter element on the breather. I have been crossing creeks that some might say are small rivers. Water depth has been at top of seat. bike almost died mid-stream!

    My trip last weekend with the helmet went good. at 70mph with no windscreen i had no whistles or shakes, and the visor stayed down and sealed. it was pretty cold out and the shield kept fogging. and with the shield all the way down it wouldnt go away. crack the shield a little and it was evaporate pretty quickly, which leads me to believe that the shield seals pretty well

    One thing i didnt like was the fogging, so i tried to put a pair of goggles on instead of using the shield. the goggles fit but i could close the shield with them on. Where my buddies helmet you could. not a big deal tho

    mendoteach: I'm taking full advantage of the beer situation for the duration of my stay here!

    JWhitmore & OnOff: When I lived in New England finding legal places to ride off-road was a serious challenge. There were only 6 state parks in MA with legal trails - if you paid annually for the sticker. Most of those trails were an hour to two hours on the highway from where I lived. Initially there was a reciprocity agreement with NH to ride their trails, but starting in 2011 you had to buy their annual OHV sticker as well. We all joked that our bikes were starting to look like recreation boats with the park stickers! RI you could ride just about anywhere as long as you stayed on the trails. I believe CT had several parks that were legal but it was too far on the slab to be of any interest on my XRL.

    It is highly ill-advised to not follow the suggested rules, at least in MA, since the fines were quite steep, and included your bike taking a ride without you that requires even more cash to get back. I followed the rules in state parks.

    High-tension lines were a gray area. Technically they are private property (of whoever owns the land, not always the utility company) so in theory you could figure out who owns it and contact them for permission. They're a fun place to tool around on the access roads. I made a point to keep the RPM's low, not tear up the place, and just have fun on very rough dirt roads. Single pass through a section and keep going. Never had an problems. YMMV, etc.

    I guess my general observation is that it isn't necessarily true that it's easier to find legal riding spots on the East coast.

    I belong to an off road motorcycle club over in west Marin County, The Marin County Motorcycle Association. The club leases 1200 acres of the owners property. There is an extensive network of trails. Nice big club house, the whole bit. When a trail has been used up it is taken out and rehabed and a trail put in it's place. One of the club rules is that you STAY ON THE TRAIL. No making your own trails. If people are found to behaving badly we have our own BAN HAMMER. At $500.00 a year dues a six month suspension really hurts. This years makes it thirty years as a member for me. My son and younger daughter are also members.

    When we have cold winter weather here, the fogged up face shields are an issue on the bikes. On my last snowmobile trip we had a new rider that didn't have a proper helmet with a dual-pane shield. It was a dual-sport helmet similar to the bilt or Gmax shown earlier.

    I had a packet of these Clarity Defog It wipes and tried it on his shield. It worked terrific and he was able to keep riding with us for the whole day.

    Give them a try. I know Cycleworld, Rider, or one of the big moto magazines just did a test of the "anti-fog" products and they found this Clarity brand product to be the best.

    Looks good. Turn down tips used to be common on bikes in the late 80's-90's but manufacturers got away from them. I always agreed they helped sound levels. I put the stock exhaust back on my bike yesterday and put the Supertrapp on the bench for now. Sound is a big issue and we have lost plenty of trails due to noise complaints.

    Quite a few pages back folks where asking about the Al Baker XR's only Tank decals. I was reading that they stopped making them and where no longer on there web site. I called them and ask and they still are making these Tank decals. It takes a little looks on there site but they are there.
    The one on my tank in has been on there for over a year now and still going strong. Just a FYI folks.
