BigDave, good to hear you got some riding in.

Bragging on my better half segment:

We were going to go moto camping but got shut down by a *dead battery* on saturday. Got a new battery and headed out early sunday am. Went up old tollhouse to shaver refueled and then to florence lake and back down the 4 lane. Her 1st 180 mile day and her 1st freeway. Got a text at lunch today: "triceps sore."

*dead battery* Stopped up on kaiser and her bike wouldn't start. Now the new battery is dead. Found a loose wire, push started the bike and all was good. So she also got to experience having her bike torn apart on the side of the road a hundred miles from home. Was a good day.
I had one. I yelled out '' cant beat 4strokes...when you fuck up''.

Yeah Ben, I got the "lite" bike 2.5 years ago and never looked back.
So much more fun offroad and a must in the tight stuff I like best.
Just do it.

I live in Fresno and want to start going on fire roads and such!

Thanks!

Good times riding with ya! Gotta say yer a total lier about your offroad skills. If you were having a hard time you sure had me fooled! If you are looking for a good "next ride" hit one of the JPacassi/PCvance/PotentialScat/Redwave et.al. rides. Yes they may be better offroaders but you'll have a good time. Forget all the upgrades you mentioned for your bike ... Just get some good sturdy boots first!

Yeah. That DR needs to get abused offroad like JP's bike. It's Like a ten year old dirt virgin.


The reschedule works for me Mike, got any pics of the 640?

Yeah my 640 has been down since August, but it is now getting the top end reworked, cam bearings, valve job, and piston/rings. It'll be ready to go by late June or early July. The 525 is great for single track and offroad but the 640 is better for dual sport rides.
