I managed to get my babay out for spin last weekend.


Ready for the off, with my eldest son about to take his first ever trail ride aboard my XR 400.

Picked this up last week

Clarke tank, Corbin seat, TF rack, bar risers, 3x3 mod and jetted

I added CR high bars and have crash protection on the way. More dirt oriented tires....it never ends. I know.... preaching to the choir right?

How do you like the Tubliss on the DRZ rims/tires? Did you do it yourself? Done much off-road since install? Any issues?

Local shop did it for me. I will never use front because its only can be done in the shop. Rear tire easy to do in the field if you have 110psi pump. Feels great on the bike. Great system because you can run zero psi without any problems and flat fix is 5 minutes now.

Pretty cool little car, I think he only has about 10k in it and it will smoke some seroiusly fast cars. Last time it was at the strip it was runing in the 10's at the 1/4 mile on race gas. It has since been dyno tuned and got a bump in timing.

We call it the thunderchicken and make fun of him for driving an old lady's car. He gets that last laugh though.

I have always been into vettes but got rid of both of mine and now I am into Hummer's and adventure riding hence my name and me being here. Here is the H1

Very cool. IDK why, but I've always been a sucker for that body type tbird. I want to put the new 400hp 5.0 and supercharge it. Modern suspension, 6 speed tranny and air bags.

Sweet hummer too, very tough.

Hey, what tires are those? I'm looking for some stree tires in 18/21. I plan on adding a pair of rims to my garage so I can swap them out instead of changing tires every time I change use.

Kenda trackmasters good for dirt, twisty asphalt not so much

Had a sitter on Saturday and the wife was working, so I took the DRZ out for some solo mountain road fun time. Got up into the hills and as per usual the spandex brigade of road cyclists were out in full effect, so I was riding slowly. Not to mention I am using the trackmaster knobbies which don't lend themselves to street duty anyhow. I love this stretch of road because of how many tight crazy off camber turns it has, and on my old supermoto I would bomb this road, and slide all over the place with an enourmous grin on my face. This time I'm going up hill turning right into a fish hook off camber 10mph turn at probably 13 mph. A bicyclist is in my lane coming downhill probably doing 25, so in an instant I just dipped a little lower, and voila! knobbies give out and im spun out facing the opposite direction. guy doesnt stop, or say anything. He got super lucky I didn't end his day with 300lbs of suzie loving. I pull the bike out of the road and look it over...couple little scratches and bent bars (the newish tusk ATV bend bars) but on my cruise home I realize the front end is out of alignment and theres also gouges in the lower fork tube. Decided, eff it I have never made an insurance claim before, so dammit I'll put it to good use. I literally a week ago changed my deductible from 500 to 100 so I was stoked about that... only to look at my claim online to see my agent never finalized that policy change. fuck. Anyway, I guess we'll see how "ride" insurance by progressive handles it. Kinda just wanted to vent a little... stupid damn cyclist asshole. hopefully they don't total the damned thing...

Oiler burner?

So I just got back from about a 700 mile trip and realized that my bike is quite an oil burner, I used about a quart. I am not looking to spend big bucks on the motor since I may upgrade in about a year or so but then again it needs to be done right. What are my options and what to you think it would cost...new piston and rings, new stock cylinder with piston and rings, 434 kit with cylinder.... Any write ups/threads would be appreciated and recommended vendors would be a plus.
