    Yeah.....
    At least I thought it was you that told me......
    Pouring bacon grease on the dog shit in my yard makes it disappear overnight.
    It works.

    Honestly I get kind of board just going round and round. I do enjoy the challenge of a new discipline but need my share of gooning it up!

    Thanks, sound like I have turrets! It's been an interesting experience and I'm no longer the slowest at The Farm. I do wish the fast guys would slow down a little cause the vid following a rider is always neat to watch.

    I coach people for a living and teach a specific sport so I'm always intrigued by technique and have applied that quest for technical knowledge to this new discipline of riding. Sundays point of focus was maintaining momentum and applying consistent throttle on the upside of the jumps. Pretty much get on the gas as you land and roll up the face with a consistent application of go go juice. In the past I was ham handing it too much and relying on the power of the 500 to really launch me off the jumps - always gassing it too late. This technique helps make the ride smoother and feels like less work on the motor. :norton

    It is all about flow and being smooth, which results in being faster. Same applies in mountain biking as it isn't all about having power.
    Once you're confident in your skills too, your speed will go up as well.

    Cleaned up the 300 and put some more oil in the tank. Have to change the gear oil, before the next ride.
