That looks like a great spot to stop.

I would want a rest break before going any further... I wouldn't want to be tired going into that section.

It looks like I would be stopping a short ways down the trail again. That looks like a good workout.

I would want to be on a trials bike thou...

You know, when you are out riding with your friends, and there is always some idiot in the pack who says "Hey, watch me, I can ride up that hill, or cross that puddle, or jump those 2 piles of dirt..."??

That idiot is...I.

Like 3GirlsDad's arm, only bloodier. Sometimes I am happy that this XRL thread never has a meet up.

Safe riding.

I've met at least three people who are on this thread. Two came by from California!

I got the pig in March 2012. I never checked or serviced the forks since I have owned it. I've put 10,000 miles on it since then, probably 6,000 miles in the dirt. Fork bushings got replaced also.

Rad bike, Pal. Looks nice. Seems like you thought things through pretty well. Who made that rack?

The way Spud explained it was you turn the mixture screw in until the idle gets choppy, then slowly back out until the idle picks up again.

Worked perfectly for me today with the new jets in. Started off with it 2.5 turns out, got it nice and warmed up, adjusted the mixture as described, and then swapped in a new spark plug. Went for a 35 mile ride, pulled the plug, and the color looks great!
