Anyone have a link to the video of the guys in their 70s riding KTMs? I thought it was posted here, but it didn't turn up in a search. I met the dad of a guy I ride with, and he said I was awful old to be playing with dirt bikes. I thought I'd pass the video along next time I see him.

"That sits at the bottom of a road called 7 mile hill by the locals."

Actually, we call it "7 mile drive". It is supposed to be 7 miles from the square of New Phila to the square of Dover via 416/800. 416 from the New Phila corporation line to 800 is one fun motorcycle road too....... 800, not so much

I knew that but for those of us who pedal it, it's a HILL not a drive

If I tried to pedal it, it wouldn't be a hill, it would be a massive coronary

Actually, that may have been one of the roads I was on a couple of weeks ago on the Tiger....been on a bunch of those sorta roads in that area, just don't remember which ones

Find out and let me know if my memory is further gone than I thought

Intrigued... Tell me more as that looks like an awesome toy with little practical use for a grown ass man.

Machine shop

Anyone recommend a good, hopefully reasonably priced machine shop in Canton/Akron area?

I have a broken exhaust manifold bolt in the head of my DR650. I have the head off and at best it will need to be extracted, at worst a heilcoil installed. I work down in North Canton and am thinking of taking it to Fosnaught Auto to see if they could do it. Just wanted to see if there was somewhere else to consider.

thanks,

have you already tried a small pick or tapered punch with a sharp tip and a small hammer to see if you can get it to rotate. Heating the whole area judiciously with a torch and then spraying penetrating oil down the hole may help as well. If you don't get anywhere with it or find someone local to take care of it, let me know.
