    I do like the looks better without the frame gaurds but like the protection. Only problem with clear is they would get real nasty looking.

    I rode the Sherco around the back yard a little last weekend. Probably the last it will be ridden for a few months. Just too warm around here. When you wake up to the A/C running, it's not cool enough to gear up and putt around the yard. The new lanyard teather works. That upgrade is done.

    Got flywheel weight installed on the Scorpa 125 Factory. It's a good modification for me, as it's still pretty snappy, but translates into more traction with less clutch.

    If you really want to test it, come to "sunny" Florida. It's been raining every afternoon all week, & heavily. I could take you to a really fun place. The slime turns to stucco when it dries. No kidding. :D

    stop talking about rain........... I have had enough of that for a long time...............
    OH this may not make sense in this thread....


    What did I do with my trials bike.

    I moved it out of the way so I could scrub the garage floor with bleach following our recent flood event. (river had a release of raw sewage. I sometimes spend time on the garage floor under cars, tractor, bikes, etc.)

    That would be more like Affluent with Lincoln logs. 3 years ago on Memorial Weekend I got hit in the face with RAW Sewage. Lost 20 pounds in 3 days. I quit drinking for 6 months. That`s being sick. :lol3

    I had a new 4RT in 2017, sold it last year and kept the old Sherco to ride, so I sorta remember what new tires grip like. It will be nice though to see how they do on this bike.

    that's right, all moisture related content must be approved by me before posting. This is in effect until I am no longer a whiny little :icy

    It's all good, my ability to forget is actually quite high.

    He set a few intermediate type sections and made the better riders try them one handed, that was interesting. I would say I learned a good bit today about for/aft balancing

    Doing some testing today. Fine tuning the gas screw trying to find that 'cafe cortado' color.

    Also testing that magic blue sauce. I really like it, and it seems that my TXT Pro like it even more! Clutch is way more sensitive and very quick, in comparison my previous gear oil 10W40. IMG_20200525_173703.jpg IMG_20200530_160059.jpg IMG_20200530_110702.jpg

    Helped set sections for the gate trials next week.I got truly evil with a few things I did.I guess Pat Smage is coming up to ride and trying to put some stuff in that at least sort of challenges him.

    We were just discussing this at the Tryals Shop Friday.... Make it so everyone is smiling at the end. Don't worry about challenging riders like Pat, as he'll figure out a way to challenge himself if it's too easy.
