Not official yet, but they were talking about 1:00PM. That will give you 4 hours. Our guys pre rode it in 2.5 hours and that was with some stops, in order to arrow or change some things along the way.

After the rather stellar performance of the Mighty XR @ FVOR this past Sunday, I'll be racing it this Sunday at the Geneseo, IL Enduro.

2whlrcr,
I assume you'll be at the Enduro?

2whlrcr,

Yes. But I will be working. Probably manning a checkpoint.

Does it have to be dirt? I live about 8 miles west of the airport. There are quite a few office buildings near my house. On the weekends, the parking lots are totally empty. Lots of room to play/learn. I may be out in one of them tinkering with my DR650.

Cheap Tire Change

Does anyone here know of a cheap place to change tires? I have a F650 with no stand and very little patience. I changed to knobbies earlier this summer and want to go back to my Tourances. Any suggestions for a place I can bring my old tires (new tubes if needed) to have them replaced?

I taught my 5year old how to start, stop, and turn I my back yard. It's only the size of a city lot. Once he got the hang of that I took him to Rocky Glen ORV park in Rockford. I set up cones in the back and taught him about fast stops, technique, standing etc. Then I thru him on the kids motocross track. :)
Don't know if that helps or not. We will probably be at Rocky Glen this Saturday as a matter of fact.
