DOGs: Whissenhunt Sunday morning, Oct 26

Yo DOGs (and others!), I am making plans to ride Whissenhunt this coming Sunday... 10/26. Will be on my new toy. Probably show up early... thinking 7ish but not set in stone... just turn up and ride. I do wanna get there before the quads show up which usually happens around 11 best case scenario. I will have the pickemup truck there with drinks and snacks for everyone if I can get a head count. Come on out and let's have some fun.




Can someone show me how to adjust the valves on this thing?

Sweet man, really good looking ride you got there. I remember growing I always loved the green KLX and KX bikes. Never got to have one as a kid though, mother would never let me get one, her brother died on one in Peru. When I finally had the funds for a dirt bike I had to get the KLX to make up for not having the mean green during my childhood. Have fun with it man!!

Sounds like fun. I've been thinking about getting the XR250 out for a while.
I'm going to try to make it. Don't worry about me for snacks and drinks, but thanks for the kind offer.

I may be dragging my son up too. He's been a bit hesitant to go back there since he got forced off the main trail by a quad last time, but he seems interested again.

Edit: Forgot to say "Nice Ride". I'm sure you'll have a blast on a light 2-stroke like that.

I'll try to make it. I did abot 70 miles at Highland park today. Left no trail untouched. I must have rode the outer loop 10 times or more trying to hit them all.

Unfortunatly I am not entering anything til the 625 is sold.

Hope to see you guys there Sunday, should be a good time.

Mark, come on out. Bring the kid. That main trail does suck, but it's boring anyway, I like the side trails much better.

Crane, how many 2 strokes did you wheelie past today? I know it's hard to count that high...

Not hard to count that high at all. Remember I was on the 625. I also was enjoying the smell of the pre-mix. I also didn't ride any wheelies.

Good luck, she's a beauty!
