I am sure you still have the time to make it to Dillons and kick it over. Hell, let's just call Dillon himself and have him kick it over..............

Eric, you know I am kidding.........

You guy's better be careful, don't let his docile name fool you, this thing bites, HARD!!

Jeff, I have the folding mirrors on this bike, so even if you do fall into me, he should be fine...

so much for me hoping to make this ride on the 380.

Yesterday while WFO in a sand wash the engine seized.

Had to have a friend tow me out with his trike through 10 miles of deep sand.

I new I should've sold that fucking thing.

The DRZ's too heavy. (see:I'm not a good enough rider to take that bike through this stuff)

It happened yesterday so I have no idea WTF happened yet. The bike had been running fine for over a year so

The joy of two strokes. Deep sand, WFO and a tish too lean. At least they are easy to work on.

I know I should have bought that bike when you had it for sale.

Sorry to hear you broke it.

You can still buy it.

The problem I'm gonna have tearing into it is I have no fucking idea what I'm doing. What could possibly go wrong right?

i've had to deal with the fact that the fancy clutch does not compensate for lack of skill and physical stamina as clearly illustrated in the last ride I went with Terry on which almost killed me.

On that note, you going down there in your hoopty?

Julio,

If you speak real nicely, I might let you use the 250 EXC 2-smoke for the ride. It is shorter in stature, thus a good ride for you. Also, what year is your 380...and what tank do you have on it?

that's mighty nice of you but I'd like to kindly remind you that I've completely destroyed 3 engines on 3 separate bikes in the past couple years.

The 380's a 98. It's got the bigger than stock tank on it I think 3.8(?) The only thing I added to that bike since I bought it was protective stuff and a Revloc. I wouldn't want to do an entire day on that paint shaker so gas was never an issue.
