WBCDT-section 1 after the Blackdog?

Hello all

I am headed up to the BD for all three days and wanted to ride section 1 of the WBCDT Monday or Tuesday. I am going solo so I thought I would see if any one would like to ride that section on Monday?

Also, it is my first BD. I have a KLR set up for offroad with 606's, 14/47 gearing, and stiffer springs. I am a big dog but can ride pretty decent. Any advice on which route? I am thinking B but I love single track...not super gnarly steep rocky rutted single track but flowing and semi challenging single track.

One last thing. I would like to ride with a group so if anyone else is solo or is open to a mellow down to earth addition to their group please let me know.

Thanks guys, Matt

Anybody know how loud a DR650 with a FMF is? Doesn't sound loud to me but after reading all their sound check warnings I'm nervous.

Been there the last three years and have yet to see a DB meter. Don't rev it loud around the fairgrounds and it won't be a problem. Unfortunately, I'll be missing this years Black Dog, but I'll be riding in SE Oregon, so that makes up for it. Otherwise, I love the Black Dog - have fun!

Tom will ding your score card for loud mufflers.
He dinged my XR650R with an uncorked stock Honda muffler.

I think it might have been about some whiners bitchin' about being passed by a Honda's roost.

Don't worry yourself about it, just go do it, but respect the local residents & other trail users who have to go through this gathering each year. More about the AMA requirements & keeping this event going.
So keep it down for this event. RESPECT other peoples lifestyles while you're there...then rip it up when you return home.
I run a BMFBG on a 650, was tested once...but kept it cool for this great event.

HAVE FUN...IT"S NOT A RACE!!!!

If you have any possible way to mount it a stainless 90deg elbow on the end of the can will help alot.

Dang, call by my place, i have all sorts of implants & redirectors you could have...gave up messing with them.
I once went to the auto wreckers, climbed in the hood of an old Ckevy pick-up to get a radiator hose elbow, to redirect the sound. It aims it down, but when i got tested, they hold the decibel reader at whatever angle the noise is directed...still over. It does muffle the sound at a distance though. PM me if you want, i'll give you the bag of tricks!
IMO they won't turn you away, just kick you in the ass & tell you to take it easy!
Chill...go & enjoy it. Big event, run by great guys, great get together.
