When you begin a '99 300 EXC two stroke ride with the petcock set on reserve, you go exactly 76.4 miles, you get to meet Officer Clay, and become the beneficiary of the LCSO's gas.

I don't have to guess about shit like this.



Another hint: when you're leading a fairly brisk ride and you see the following site, stop and go around like the guys behind you do, unless you want to half drown your tired ole ass, put your two stroke in hydraulic lock, take the plug out, turn it upside down, and pull the back wheel over for five or ten minutes and then kick the shit out of it for the next thirty minutes.

Once more, I don't have to guess about this kinda shit.

Officer Clay has been a good sport on a couple of occasions when puny tanked bikes I've been on gave out. Glad you made it out Harold. Where abouts was that hole? Tough to tell from the small-ish pic, but it looks like the same one Joey found off of 10. I used to ride the trails enough to be able to map out the areas to avoid after a strong rain. Now I can't find the woods...

The normally dry hole is at 30.354431N, 84.410682W. Not at all remote, and just a low spot. (No trucks digging it out). But gas tank deep. Very easily gone around 100yds to the north.

I know that spot. I pulled a guy that was trying to "go parking" with his girlfriend in a Taurus out of there about 7-8 years ago.... Was leaving the range, and saw this cutie was walking down the road. I turned to my buddy and asked his opinion on what to do. He said "Dude, I'm not sure. This is how horror movies start." I replied "This is how pornos start too!"
Seems as if the young man thought that road would be a great place to take his lady for some action. They got about 2/3 of the way into where you got swamped and stuck that Ford on a tree root. I hooked my Dodge to it and got ready to pull. He asked if I wanted him to put it in reverse to "help out" I'm pretty sure I got this, and away we went. He was heading back to town to go truck shopping when we unhooked his ride and drove off.

That thing is done for... What time should I come by to load it up and remove that obvious headache from your garage?

Well, I'm kinda fond of my little ole two stroke, so how about the twelth of never -- and that's a long, long time! But you can borrow it any time, few want.

I've been working on a guy in town with a 250, and I may be getting close. Downside is that I don't have time to ride what I've GOT.

Incidentally, I have been axed for my registration and OHV pass more times in this year (2013) than in all previous years combined.

When preparing to ride on Friday, and while unloading at the little old defunct gas station on Crawfordville road and Rivers road, me and a riding bud were approaced by a Sheriff's deputy in a county cruiser and two ANF law enforcement types in ANF truck who wanted to see our tags. They were content with the tags and didn't ask for registration, but I thought it was interesting that we were not in the ANF, and for that matter, on private property at the time. They seemed surprised that we were both street legal.

They were cordial enough and I was the model of compliance. Not sure I'd venture into the ANF w/no tag these days.

Get outa Dodge. We all get three score and ten, more or less, and we each of us spend that time according to our priorities. You just need to make time to haul ass in the dirt.

I was riding with a gentleman on a KTM 300, late model. Sucked up water when he laid her down. It took us an hour to get that thing started. Now I know why he had 4 spark plugs in his tool belt. Same deal, upside down and spinning the back tire, forever...

Sometimes it is better to have a 4 stroke.

I have one of them too, a EXC 540. The last time I submerged it, it cost me just a bit over $1600 (with me furnishing the labor) Jug, piston, and crankshaft. Got to admit that the fo' stroke ingested lots o' sand along with water. Instant huge oil consumption, followed -- about a month later -- with a vicious big end rod bearing knock. It was great having to tear the engine down a second time w/in one month. To say nothing about all the fun with the timing chain, valves and other stuff.

This was the 300's second submerging and the cost was a $2 sparkplug.

I like both bikes, but my next woods ride if and when I need one, will be a two stroke.
