I'm willing to bet just watching the trials bikes would have been fun.

Here you go Chad. Think this has some of the pics, but not all. I've got some sick video of Ryan and some of the training.

Well, I'm about to be two motorcycles lighter. A guy is en route to pick up my Triumph projects. I realized that getting them back to stock just wasn't an option, and I got an offer I couldn't refuse from a guy in Charlotte. It is a sad day, but hopefully I can find another British gal to take their place....preferably one in all her original clothes.

Not for a while. She really doesn't want to buy anything until after the kid is born. She's afraid that she just won't have time to ride and it will just sit in the garage.

Since you're lookin at buying a bike about as fast as I'm interested in selling when the Mrs is ready if you want a DRZ let me know. I REALLY don't want to sell it, first bike, lots of mods, I'd take a huge hit, but I just don't ride it anymore and I spend more time replacing worn parts from sitting than I do riding it. Now it needs a battery and a petcock. $100 in simple parts that I'm probably not going to get around to until next year.

I appreciate the offer, but she would need a boom truck to get on a DRZ.

I'm specifically looking for a CRF230L or a XT250. Something short and lightweight.

I would buy that DRZ in a heartbeat if I had the money and it wouldn't start divorce proceedings.

Man... I've been WFO with work and haven't ridden since we carried Magellan out of the woods with a broken collarbone( 6 weeks ago ). 2 plates and 8 screws later, I believe he will join us.

Between real work and the old truck project and adding a garage to keep it, I have been busy.

Is the butter bean season over? I love those things

I hear you got something blue that kills the gnats with castor.

Hey 2 stroke guys,

I have managed to blow one of my fork seals on the DR while in the mountains at Nottarally.

Instead of just popping seals in the forks I really need re-valving and bigger springs for my weight. Instead of dumping cash into the stockers I wanted a little more fork travel so.........
Looking to do the RM fork conversion. Does anyone know of someone wanting to sell the front end from a RM250 or 125 after 1999 model year?
It is a direct bolt on to the DR frame so it is a no brainer. If I could find a set in good working order I would be ahead of the game.

Since it is the left leg that is leaking I had to stop riding it as it leaked all over the brakes.

Ray
