My 350 is my dream bike. Never giving it up! Probably a 250 for her...
Would love to have joined but plans for Saturday. Drop a pin and I might scoot by on Sunday and say hello!
Not sure of the exact spot yet but we won't be far off the main road. Look for a red dodge pick up and a familiar KTM.
It’s good to find the one. I’ve been very curious about your bike for a long time - that whole FE series, actually. It seems like a perfect fusion between the 3002T and the 690, and given some of the shots you’ve posted, it looks really nimble and capable, all with the supreme bonus of street legal. I’ve been in Reno purgatory for this summer, but next season I’d like to reach out and go for a spin. Maybe we can trade for a km or two or I can tag along on your crew for the Wanduro.
Sounds great. For sure take it for a spin - we can do some riding together next year. I have ridden a lot of bikes but the FE 350 - well it is light years more fun than my 690 was, and it is way lighter than my WR 250 was, heck for any kind of scrambling/single track, go anywhere bike it's the bees knees...
Definitely up for the WANDR 2020 - usually a big scramble to find teammates as many cannot plan that far in advance - I will be there...
While next weekend is to perhaps bring snow, it will also bring the next edition of the Redbull Endurocross to Calgary.
This year the first day will be held in downtown at Eau Claire Market. Admission is free.
"Experience the thrill of live motocross action
There’s nothing like the thrill of live motocross action. Riders navigate a closed course track around a city block with a series of obstacles, like rocks, logs, gravel, sand, and mud, on an all-terrain motorcycle that will leave your ears buzzing with excitement. All this action attracts the best professional and amateur riders from across North America, ready to face off in this extreme sport where they’ll risk it all to be the best."
First session of "Got Mud?" for little one. It went over way better than i thought. She is pretty pumped right here. Cheers all. Ride while you can.
Squeezed in a ride in the Kookanusa / Dore Rd area on the weekend. After they restricted the complete mayhem a couple of years ago, many people mistakenly assumed that the area was effectively shut down for single track riding. Not the case. We rode for hours on technical single track. It’s still awesome.
Good field reporting. Thank you.
Last ride of the season? I hope not but with snow in the forecast I wasn’t taking any chances.
@ScooterNoMore joined me for a run west of town. It was brisk but worth it for the view.
Scooternomore rolling into the meeting spot. Nice rig.
The view! Good lord we win the view lottery.
...the sexy beast...
Looks awesome! Sorry I couldn't make it out!
And the work begins. It’s a fairly long list for 30k service. Figure I’ll do the forks while I’m at it. Any opinions on this? My fork service intervals on my enduro bikes is every 150 hours. Not sure how that translates into ADV land?
Brake pads, new front tire, oil, air filter service, cyclops bulb gremlins. Somehow I broke the grab handles so will replace that. I’m ditching the bar risers as well. I don’t like how they feel off road, on climbs in particular.
Guess I’ll also be learning how to check the valves on this beast. Oh yay.
Is that the hill with all the roots near the top? I hate that hill
Don't think so. This hill was mostly a minefield of rocks. There's a bunch of hill-climbs along the water front with roots near the top that are mostly off-limits now. They were definitely a handful. lol
Great do a video on the valves. I'm not there until next year but always good to see it done. Check eBay for those handles. Lots of guys ditch those in favour of spacers.
Good call on the ebay handles. Maybe I should just go with spacers as well. The handles are kind of in the way.
I sure hope there are videos on Youtube or I don't like my odds of doing the valves myself. I'll let you know what I find.
On my 950, I service the shock and forks every other winter. I find that coincides with my valve adjustment interval so I just do it all at once... keeps me busy on those dark & cold winter weekends.
Like the one coming....
I just hope this early blast of winter is short lived - I am planning to leave on a 3-day loop through the Kootenays one week from now. Might be stress-testing my heated gear by the looks of things...
