That is a really fun trail. I grew up riding that loop... never gets old. It is really neat that I can pull out of my driveway, stop to gas up and be at the trailhead in about 25-30 minutes.
It is killing me this week! The bike's dirty, temps are 65-70 today and tomorrow and I have too much to do to be able to ride! Oh well... maybe get the bike washed. It got put up FILTHY last winter. Perhaps this fall it will get a bath.

Indeed there is not. Ever since they closed Angelina Nat'l Forest to offroaders (unless your on a horse) the only place to ride in East Texas is the Sam Houston Nat'l Forest north of Houston. It's great riding when it isn't closed for one reason or another but after 40+ years of riding there it's gotten a little old for me at least.

Why do they call it no-toil?

I just put the no-toil oil on my air filter.....damn! That stuff's a mess. I should have got out some latex gloves, because I think I used about three ounces of the cleaner just to get it off my hands. Plus, I have to wait 30 minutes for this stuff to set up before I can slap it back on?! I'm too impatient for this stuff! Haha!

Does no-toil give you a substantial performance boost? What's the draw? I'm thinking of just ditching this stuff and picking up a petroleum based filter oil down here.

Speaking of changing the oil...

How many quarts do you all typically use when refilling?

I just changed the oil for the first time on my 2002 XRL (bought it a week ago). Some online research recommended 2 quarts. I put in 2 quarts, cranked/warmed it up to let the oil circulate, checked the dipstick... It showed it being really low. Is 2 quarts not the recommended amount?

Also... I used Honda GN4 10w-40 oil. I figured this first time I'd use the recommended oil from Honda... What do you all use? What's cheaper but better performing?

Thanks!
