So we got the OSET all charged up and snuck in a ride this morning before the snow came. I ziptied the foot pegs up to start. She is used to that form from the Strider. Aven cant flat foot both sides on the OSET so its just barely small enough for her. I figured it would be later in the summer before she was really ready but we went over to the park and hit the grass right away. She was timid at first and the bumpy grass was causing issues so we moved onto the pavement, after about five minutes she could balance and hold her feet up as long as she wanted. I then dropped the pegs and she put her feet right up there and that was that. This vid is about twenty to thirty minutes into her first dirt bike!! She's pretty amped up. see what I did there?

Fun day Sunday blasting along Bunce School road under crystal clear skies.



Not 100% ATGATT as LittleTex has outgrown his riding boots - again.

Training wheels

I just picked up a KDX 50 and it has a training wheel setup which is from Haul Master. It is a single axle with two mounting bars at right angles which appear would attach to the foot peg bars but it did not have any other hardware. Before I start to re invent the wheel I am asking for any suggestions on the best way to attach this. Thanks

You've got it right, they usually attach to the foot peg brackets and nothing else.

Ok and now for the next question. This bike has been sitting for over a year and I have changed the plug, gas and cleaned the carb. It runs poorly at my altitude 9,300 ft and I would like any suggestions from anyone on jetting. Thanks

Free kids boots

I think they're 7.5, but the tags are so worn out I can't read them anymore.



They are not quite as dirty as they appear in the pic.

FYI, if anyone has kid gear that needs a home, I'm happy to act as a collection site for Larimer county NYPUM.

I'll be up in Woodland Park next week.

I'd be happy to give them to NYPUM. Let me know where to drop them off.

Hi Paul,

I'll be up there with Hellsickle, staying Thanksgiving morning thru Saturday afternoon. We'll be staying at the Country Lodge, next to City Market. Riding 717 area on Friday and Saturday morning, and can hook up anytime during that timeframe. If that doesn't work for you, let us know, and we can make other arrangements.

Cheers,
Will
