Hmm, I need a subframe, muffler, plastics, and magneto side cover for my '06.

I don't know if it's the Michigan trails that are fast, these guys are fast, or both. All I know is I am jealous.

Skip ahead to about 1:30.

They are fast, but lack of New England rocks and mud make them look faster.

Why do you think I go back to Michigan every year for the last 4 years. Yes, the trails can be very fast and there are a few fast guys too. Pure trail riding fun!

Are they building your BETA yet Gary? . .

Oh boy are you gonna love that bike. Fast is fast no matter what your riding on. Them boys are fast. They say N.E. is one of the toughest terrains. I think San Diego desert would tough. Those tight pine forests wear you out pretty quick.

How's that new bike Thad?

Only took it out a couple times behind my house so far and busted two rear spokes doing that. No rocks behind my house so not sure what happened there but it's fixed now. I felt more comfortable on it the second time out but I think I'll tone her down a bit with the jetting and power valve, as suggested, until I get used to riding with a powerband. I need to get a radiator guards and lights, and get it registered before I can take it on any real rides. I'm hell bent on getting the bullet proof design guards so have been holding off trying to save up money.

There's a guy with red plates in that video so I think that accounts for some of the speed...unless he's a poser. Anyway, that's how fast I feel like I am going when out on the trails but every time I watch my videos after the ride it looks like they are in slow motion. Some day.
