Vic has a Slow Burn planned for Wed that I think is still happening.

Regardless of who shows and who you ride with, "Don't ride over your head"...a wise gentlemen by the name of Lyle Peterson used to give his sons that advice before every race and I still consider it some of the best advice I ever heard.

And you actually followed that advice today.

Hutton @ 0900, so far it's me Skid SR56 Gimmee. Skid bringing the DR 650, I'll be on 690, SR-who knows, he's got a few to select from. Don't imagine it'll be a slow or fast burn, somewhere in the middle.
If anyone else wants to join in, come on. See you @ Hutton for 9 am roll-out..."

b. If someone had showed up that rode considerably slower then I am pretty sure the pace might have been slower. As it was I rode sweep several times today--which rarely happens, but we werent' trying to set any land speed records either. We had 3 guys on new (to them) bikes and riding said bikes at max press would just be dumb. Plus, the 5 of us that actually showed up tend to ride our bikes at 9.786/10, so WTH? Today, all riders that showed up had either raced bikes on dirt or track, raced cars, etc. or all the above.

c. The only people that might catch grief from riding slow (and I am not aware that has EVER happened) is if you show up for a fast burn LATE, and you are TOTALLY not a fast burn rider, crash frequently, didn't bring enough gas, your bike hasn't been prepped, i.e. "anybody got a tire pump", spark plug, tools, etc... or show up on a street bike, or with F'n SLICKS on DIRT F'n bike, well, yeah, then you might catch some grief. But not to your face because, well, that would just be uncomfortable...

Just say'n...it is what it is, depending on who shows up.

Ok, I get it. But this thread has morphed into a fast burn.

XR650 motor rebuild

That is a lot of work to replace the output shaft, sure you can't figure out a work around?[/QUOTE]

I already welded a sprocket on last year after the initial failure. There were a few splines left but now the weld has failed and there are no more splines. I've been studying the factory manual and doing some planning. Seals, gaskets, rings are probably a no brainer. I'm at the point where I just want it done right. Thnx.

We do what we have to do to ride!
Back in the 70's, a buddy begged me to weld a sprocket to the countershaft.
I wanted him to fix it right, but it was going to cost too much since we had no tools or knowledge to get the job done.

Tack-cool with water-----Tack-cool with water.
Worked and shaft seal didnt leak oil.
thanks for the memory.

Busted. Upon reviewing the aforementioned posts in the "light of day", I do agree that I came across as kinda harsh. Ok, it was completely dickish.

Those that know me well, know that was completely in character; however it really was uncalled for in this situation, and Sperz- you deserved a better answer. My apologies to you and anyone else that felt I directed my commentary toward them.
Unless, of course you are "that guy"...

My first thought when I read this and your other post was that you were not correct; perhaps you just missed the other offers posted of rides that were not mostly catering to a faster pace.

But in reviewing posts I think you might be have a point that I admit I was completely oblivious to...

The truth is this thread was created to cater all forms of ADV riding the Panhandle, and that has not changed. There are definitely scenic, touring paced rides offered on here, but they do seem to be fewer than the offers of the faster paced rides. The question is why?

There are several inmates on here that did/do tend to prefer a more touring pace, and I do not see them posting up rides as often as they used to. And, in at least two cases, have not been riding for the past year or more (for various reasons).

I am going to take your comment and ruminate on it some, and may have to call in a few expert witnesses like EtingElefanz and VicO to assist me in my critical and in-depth assessment of the situation...because my facilities are mostly depleted and severely lacking in any case...

Good stuff Jim!

I use to offer to lead a few rides in Monroe County dualsport tour and weekend trip to Mount Cheaha. Too much carnage (people getting hurt/lost) and worrying about this and that has something to do with my reduced offers to lead a group .

Still doing it, but at a much lower volume.
A pity because more of us seems always better than just a few of us at a event .

I have no answer to this.

I would hate to think that any have departed this thread for a different one for the reason that Sperz mentioned. I know several more threads have sprung up as offshoots from this one, with mostly PAR participants, but I can't say that rides are being offered there...

I know that it has been a bone of contention that some didn't like the ummm "flavor" that this thread sometimes takes, but my feeling is that threads do morph, and that majority rules. It would be a simple matter to search back and see who prefers what, pick out those inmates and pm them to see what the "status" is.

IMHO, I think the "fast burn" crowd is more passionate about their riding, and more dedicated to it. Also, it really is a little unfair to label them "fast burn" when almost all of those inmates have a dual sport bike in addition to their more specialized "high performance" offroad bike...and they do ride them locally as well as on out of town "adventure rides"... Perhaps the PAR inmates are wanting to run solo on their touring rides??
