    There should be some sort of a riding test they give you before being allowed to write a front page article.
    Something hard enough to prove you know how to ride a motorcycle offroad. Like finishing a Hard Enduro.....

    I've seen how brilliantly can ride (seriously). Perhaps good suspension offers you too much of an advantage. Gotta be fair to the other racers, right?

    I would have been great at failing with you. I would have stopped at the hanging tires, cut one down with my knife, ridden back to the start carrying it, and shoved it up the organizer's ass.

    So there might have been a time penalty or like whatever

    You misspelled writing test. I have yet to see any piece up there that doesn’t look like an 8th grade essay.

    Dya take that using your Kodachrome, probably in your early fifties by the look of the vehicles.

    Mike's got $6500 in the suspension, and that's with his big frequent flier discount. I guarantee that he's spent way over the purchase price on upgrades. Probably closer to $20,000 + the 790r.

    Nowwhat doesn't fuck around, and he's got his builds down to a science. Also a really good dude

    Needs a suspension service badly, but it's still amazing. Definitely not a dirt scalpel, more of a blunderbuss

    @Fallacy all that trail work you did is paying off. :imaposer

    All Ride & No Work Weekend, Aug. 8-9, at Crawford Hills County Park. Come check out the 28 miles of single track trails and see all the work JCTR club members have done so far this season. But leave your chainsaws, brush cutters, etc. at home!

    For paid members of the Jackson County Trail Riders, the camping fee at Crawford Hills is $10/night instead of the usual $15.

    I'd rather pay the extra 4k and get a new 990. The 790 isn't cheap enough to justify all of the half assed flimsy shit. A 990 wouldn't lift it's leg to piss on a 790

    Top end is in the bottom end. Bottom end is locked up. Head is ugly. Jug should most likely be nikasilled. Forks are blown. Shock has probably never been opened up. 2001 with title. Spackle bucket bike gone for $450! Is this what it's like working for FFE Moto Sales?

    Nice inner thigh bike gripping stuffs tew. You'll appreciate it when you get fatigued out there. Take the small wins, they add up
