So does this mean you can't do it either Joel. Being as you appear determined on maintaining "perptetual noobness".

Oh, wait, I guess not, since you are a NOOB ON OVERDRIVE!!!




Maybe join you Friday... gonna be some MUDDY spots, and probably a fair number of new mini rock slides, just to keep folks on their toes, but the sand turns are gonna rock.

I'm pretty sure it's 240 dry, however I may have trimmed a few pounds with the extras.

I just checked the specks, was curious myself... The bike weighs 250.8 dry, stock.

I just put the Akrapovic exhaust on, that should shave a few pounds. I had it all set up to run supermoto, but I wasn't impressed... the whole time I was thinking that I would rather be in the dirt. Oh well, nice thing is you can always sell used parts

Friday will be the first day back in the dirt for a few months anyway.

Little Tujunga Update

I made it! All the way up to SCD!



All the road block stuff and equipment was still there but it was set aside so traffic could pass. Seems the only section that was closed is only a couple of yards - looks like they had some land movement and repaved a small section of the road.

But since the barriers and equipment are still there I suppose the road could close again at any time. I didn't see any signs as to how long the road work is supposed to go on for.



Ok, I was riding in the dark and the road was wet but it wasn't raining! Why are my pants and boots wet??? and full of sand!!!
I didn't fall! I swear!
The rest of me is dry!

Damn... I've been spoiled by fairings and legshields on my Scooters all this time - even in light rain I'd never get wet! Now I get soaked when it's not even raining! *sigh*

You'll fall. And yeah, unlike the little step throughs we own, you get wetter with a bike. Personally, I hate riding if there is a chance of rain. These guys may get me over that, but I don't like the idea wet pavement. My worst accident was on wet pavement. I didn't get back on a bike for over 20 years.
