So for now I will rock an 06exc525 until a new bike sponsor steps up and asks for my assistance in generating some local exposure in the ohv parks.....
400/450/525RFS, the best bang for your buck in an off road bike, and easy to plate...the 570 is nice but they are obsolete...

525 are fucking great motos, quit acting like you had to settle for a turd or something..

my friend has the same bike and beats the piss out of it and does little to no work on it ever. it just keeps scorching up hills like they were flat.

if i didnt have my current bike, the 525 would be what id have instead.

No doubt! 525 is a solid, reliable, and well handling machine (after a suspension revalve).

I checked out the leatt 3df stuff. I dont know what your normal terrain looks like, but i dont think that stuff will work much if you dive into rocks or hard pack. would be fine for your hips and thighs, but im not sure about the upper body. i love my lother leatt gear though. ive taken some disgusting tumbles down hills and came out 'relatively' unscathed. id feel naked without it at this point.

i've actually been thinking about how exciting of an adventure it would be to plan a night in advance and go along that route and tie up a few glow sticks in the trees along the trail.
we could then time participants blasting through and clock their progress between glow sticks from above.
.....i know these guys, they take bets....

Hey NorthSouth..
we are going to need a truck load of those gopros-
it would be nice to have all major areas of the timed events captured.
Maybe even mount one on a zipline above the trail as it goes down we can film the whole thing from above.
Like the NFL does.
