It was too bad. It started out cold but warmed up nicely. The sand out there was perfectly wet, so it made for great conditions. I actually worked up a sweat and had to remove layers. The DR is one heavy pig.

Thumb Ring the bell

Skools in session....

Anyone see this post by BC in the Sandblast Rally thread?

"Who would be interested in a rally riding clinic on Thursday prior to the rally? Riding tips, terrain reading tips, time keeping strategies and practice, practice, practice. Cost would be around $100 for the day. PM if interested"

Wowsers. He was venue shopping near Patrick. Too bad area 52 wasn't in the mix.

Genuine Dirt Racer in North Wilkesboro. Bart and Ben are the best. They've worked on some of the best racers bikes. Highly recommend them.

Yup.

They are about 2.5-3 hours from you, but their shop rates are very reasonable and they are the only shop I'd trust to do any serious engine work. It's just not worth taking the chance with anyone else when you have those guys available. I wouldn't trust most dealerships to set the air pressure in my tires. GDR is more of a "racer support shop" and suspension experts and they tear down engines and rebuild them all the time. I can't imagine you won't be happy with their service. And price is reasonable.

I got a letter in the mail yesterday telling me my insurance lapsed :( had to call them and decided to take the bike down to renew it since it needed inspected anyhow. When I went to leave it wouldn't start! I keep it on a tender when not riding, which is pretty much all the time. Luckily there was a hill about 100' away so I got it started. Got it inspected and took it for about an hour ride. Hopefully I don't need a new battery.

Make sure your tender cycles off when battery is topped off. Is your battery maintenance free? Some tenders will cook off the fluid in a battery as well. Check the fluid levels in the cells?

Never mind, I just caught the bike brand! Just kiddin' Chad. Always wanted a Ully, but never got around to picking one up. Magoo did talk me out of a couple though.

I know of some SM guys in the Fayetteville area. Maybe they'll pipe up.

We have a pretty good group of moto-trials riders forming up here in the area. Got 2 Trials clubs in NC...Metrolina Trails Riders and Carolina Virginia Observed Trails Club. You should check an event out sometime.

Lots and lots of off road riders around.

I'm thinking the battery is the culprit. It might be the tender itself, because it's been acting funny. Might just be the bike is pissed at me for not riding?

I'll take it out for maintenance rides if you need me to. Will even come pick it up from you and store it here at the "H".
