JustGasTanks great service

I just wanted to throw a free plug to JustGasTanks.com for great customer service. They really went above and beyond for me today. The story is that I sent a link to my mother-in law LAST November for a bigger gas tank for my KTM 500. She bought it for me for Christmas last year. Well, being the procrastinator that I am, I finally got around to attempting to install it this past weekend. It turns out they sent me the wrong tank, one digit off in the part number.

So I called them this morning, of course no receipt and 11 months after the purchase. I explained the situation, they immediately said NO PROBLEM, and are shipping me the correct tank out today, with a prepaid return label to drop the wrong tank in the box and ship back to them.

WOW, great customer service!

I found a new road today! I was out looking for one of my farms and wound up on what looks like a connector road from somewhere just east of Alley Springs all the way up to D hwy just south of Ink. Been there? Awesome views. Check it out.

Not the road that follows the river and hooks in to the county roads in west eminence. I didn't follow it all the way to alley, but the GPS showed us getting closer and closer.

Is the gravel rd 106 too?

I had kinda the same question. Never done any racing before, only just picked up another bike after riding street only for 5 years. I'm itching to get out and ride, but maybe a shakedown at Chadwick would be a good idea before attempting a hare scramble? The Hillbilly is the only one I saw that runs through the winter, unless maybe there's more down farther south? I live 1.5 hours north of Springfield as it is, so 5 hours drive is about my limit.

I went out with Sieg on the 3rd. The HS trails are just a little more difficult than the hard trails at Chadwick. Chadwick has mostly double-track trails and the HS trails are single-track. There is a perception difference if nothing else... The Wider trails gives an illusion of comfort where the single track does not. After riding the HS trails with Sieg I decided not to enter the HS race just yet. I could do the trails but I stalled out a couple of times and was slow in a couple sections, it gave me a good indication of the skills I needed to work on. Also how in-adequate my CRF450R (motocross bike) is on the tight, rocky, HS trails. I will be looking to do some Hare Scrambles in the Spring though and will probably do the one at the VTRA site. The place is set up nicely. Thank you, Sieg for taking through the trails. I'll PM you for a ride after Deer Season.

Chadwick does offer lots of things that other places do not, like jumps in the trails, a good MIX of terrain although a lot of it is rock, there are a few trails that are mostly dirt. and an inexpensive weekend of fun.
