Like you said, sometimes you need to know someone. Dave and Jimmy are good guys to know.

If I don't know your skills, you probably won't get invited. The schools are the best way for you to learn challenging roadbook navigation, and the best way for me to find out about your skills. That won't get you into the preruns, because EVERYONE wants in on those, but it will likely get you in the door once the preruns are complete.

Thanks Hoggy, This was too much fun. Some of the cool stuff we were not allowed to photograph due to Hopi tribal rules. I look better next to the cow pie than wearing it. What? See post #79.

Thanks Scott for the great pre-run!
Great terrain, awesome routes!!
I didn't see any other bike tracks besides what our group created.
Lots of sand: dunes, sandy hp, sandy double tracks, perfect sandy washes, a bit of Moab-style slab, lots of HP, no whoops.

Scott, taking a breather. Notice the unnamed, undisclosed primo wash in the background:


Dave, getting ready to head up a slot canyon:

Hi John

It's a great bike indeed. For Hondaphiles, I'm also working on 3 Meca'System CRF's for another team. See my Facebook for pics.

Hi Neil,

My bike is relatively unchanged from 2010 Dos Sertoes. Cooler and tank were in use at that time.
Yes you are looking at an HT Racing oil cooler http://www.ht-racing.com/htrbilletoilcoolerkit.aspx.

The aux tank is from Baja Designs http://www.bajadesigns.com/ProductDe...mNumber=260498. Adds 1.1gal of fuel and has served me well. I feel that the stock install(using BD hardware) for the aux tank is inadequate in one area, under full suspension loads/twisting sub frame, rear tire will contact inboard surface of tank....not good. This condition is exacerbated when running 140/80 18(full size rear)
The simple solution is to weld an extension(1" will do) onto BD mounting bracket which moves tank away from rear tire the requisite distance.

Aux tank and stock tank(together approx 4.5 gal) have yielded 160-190mile range. Given a known and acceptable jetting set up, range depends on throttle control or lack of, terrain, and quality of petrol.

Hope your leg is healing well
