New Riders Ride

Don't let my rambling discourage anyone...whatever day and time you guys set up is fine with me.

I hear the Gator has good milk shakes and Mickey's has been busy the times I have been in there so I would be up for either if that is part of the plan.


[QUOTE=SR56;24458501]Mobile, AL guys...here is your chance. Like Vic said, you guys post up some options for what days to ride and I'll join you and see if my little 230 can keep up.

Anybody else looking for a slow burn...that is a slow easy pace for those that haven't done one yet. No pressure to go fast just have fun and stay upright.

As usual, all are welcome.

I can't remember what brand/model tire is on the front of that bike, would you PM me both, if you have a moment. It's the best sand tire I've ever used and it's sorely missed, as is the rest of the bike, BTW.

Lastly, on the left side of the bike, just aft of the air filter compartment, you'll find a nice double braid 5/16ths line ideal for pulling those big ole four strokes out of the mud. It comes in handy a lot!
I could be wrong Hal, but I recall you saying you were going to try the Scoprion Pro, or the XC based on the tire you test rode on my 450. That could be what you had on the 300...

You already dorked it up. You were supposed to post the winning lotto numbers at 7:07, say seven hail mary's, and drink 7 Seven & Seven's.

I think we should plan a "slow burn" ride for many of the n00bs who have found our forum.

I have tried this several times but who knows it may work eventually.

There are a lot of guys out there who want to enjoy riding without going full race mode, AND there are guys who are just starting out in dirt (SAND!). Takes time to get use to sand riding.

So if there are any n00bs or lurkers out there who wanna get in some Black Water riding at a reasonable pace post up and lets pick a day to ride.
Sounds like a blast, unfortunately my XR is on bed rest. Last year the countershaft splines got boogered so I welded on a new sprocket. Well the weld failed last week so I'm trying to figure out what to do. Weld new sprocket on... cheap or rebuild motor... expensive or buy a new bike... really expensive.

I would go with the new bike idea...check out this site they have marked down models at a pretty good price but be careful, before you know it you'll be hooked on the Orange Cool Aid too.

Not too late for the Seven and Seven's though Remedial action for dorking up any previous post... and having an excuse ex post facto

Well I will put that info to good use as I am getting close to that 777 you speak of.

Thanx Vic, I have found that when u click on the gear to select 1080 & it starts spinning, click "pause" then "play" & it will go to 1080 instantly every time Ape-shit & Ace adding a little humor was cool too.....
