Anybody notice the two stroke has no rear brake at all.

I did not. Now it's clear why he's so out of control

on a 4 stroke I wouldn't use it, on the 2 sometimes

I use my front a lot and tap my rear to get a slide started in some corners.
Can't just lay off the gas and slide with engine brakin'.

But, I'm probably doing it wrong.

You and me both. I don't use my brakes at all. I thought we discussed this already

I will hit the rear to break it loose, but as soon as I let off the brake it hooks up. There is no continued slide

I don't use the front much at all. I think I'm riding better this year, especially the second half. And then just as I'm starting to feel pretty good about myself, That pesky 312 goes by me on one wheel

It's like Supermoto. Downshift, and dabbing the front to loosen the rear and kicking it out. The last time I was out, I was trying to work on carrying more speed into and through hairpins.

Sure now everybody is giving their secrets away.
I just only a couple of weeks ago turned the compression up form the minimun that they were set at for woods riding.
That sure helped.

I jacked up compression on the rear, preload on the front. way less feeling of "oh shit it's gonna pogo"

Unknown yet. May need to be home for a possible adoption of the foster dane.
You guys want to stop and get my truck. Or I bet the ICB could be used also.

Maybe I can get out, plow, and leave early?

What day is more needed?
