Back to our regularly scheduled program. I would like to ride on Saturday this weekend. Anyone up for riding Allen's new loop through the glade early in the AM?

Well. I forgot the Xtera off road triathlon was tomorrow. I have not been able to ride Allen's loop in it's entirety yet but tomorrow there will be a lot of bicycle traffic by the turn off. I would still like to give it a try and we could modify the loop a bit. I was planning to try and get started at 8:30 at the south glade entrance, ride clock wise, short circuit the loop with the road apple and then hit the east part of the loop. The triathlon starts at 7:00 so the majority of the traffic will be off the course by the time we make it around and the new part of the loop is too soft for mountain bikers.

Tire change.

I have watched Brainless_1 replace tubes on the trail three times so now that it is time to change my tire I figured I would do it myself. Three hours later I had shived myself twice with a tire iron, crushed my pinky, lost all the hair off my right ballsack, and verbally committed to divorcing my wife. Despite all of that, the worst part of the deal is that now my rim looks like it was recovered with the wreckage of the motherfucking titanic. Fucking tires.

Well YZ 250 Version 2.0 has begun I now have a bare frame freshly sandblasted ,and split engine cases parts have been ordered and are beginning to trickle in I am going to send the cylinder out for replating at this point once I find someone to get it done.

In other news I made my mind up to sell my KLX 450 and also my Vstrom and quite possibly once I get this YZ all gone through it might be for sale also.

We have made up our minds to look for a toy hauler or cheap RV that can pull a trailer and I am also looking for a newer bike too .Gonna thin out the herd and get something different. The KLR is staying though planning on keeping it till there isnt anything left

I'm sure watching brainless change a tube was inspirational, but next time I suggest that you skip the part where you use your nut sack!!

How else are you supposed to hold the bead on one side of the rim while prying the bead over the rim on the other side? It was either my balls or asking my wife to help. I figured the risk of pinching my balls off was less painful then working with my wife.
