I seriously couldn't get enough of these...

Ya but these don't smell as bad at the end of the day.

I could use some suspension work on my 800 too. Want to try stiffer springs in the front and I have need to replace the seals. Keep me informed if you find someone. Thanks

Replacing the stock fork inserts with adjustable Ohlins will make your bike handle like a different bike, better than new. A friend just installed the Hyperpro fork springs and oil; he says it improved his 800 dramatically. The fork inserts aren't cheap, but having adjustable settings is the bomb...

REcovery

Physical therapy is kicking my @$$ after a delay in recovery due to blood clots

In less than two weeks I will start putting weight on my leg, goal is to be riding by Turkey Day! in Lake Havasu City

No joke about the 2x4 KTM seat. It sucks, it will get replaced...one day. I have much more to keep track of than my sore ass after 30 min. High strung race bikes on the street with race slicks, no rad fan and needing 98 octane or better keep things interesting.

sorry to hear about the setback (clots), hope the rest of the recovery is uneventful but quick

Dammit....this project I'm on keeps changing scope. I'm not going to make it out there at all, I have to work on it all day today.

Thanks for clarifying the directions - at least I know where to go for the next one.

Which I hope is damn soon!

I feel your pain KMC1. I was going to ride down yesterday but was called in for 'critical lab testing' on a job that had been moved from Thursday up to Monday. I went in this morning to finish the lab workup and found a sticky note saying the job had been re-re-moved to Thursday again...

It's barely noon and the first, make that second, beer is well gone...

(Access to Ute Res land via a fishing license would have been a definite plus today as we ran into several signed "dead-ends". Wish we would have time on Saturday to travel to Fort Duchesne to get a license.)

Bottom-line, i would not attempt the pictured Sowers Canyon "shortcut" unless I had a smaller bike and a Ute tribe fishing license. YMMV.

rr...

Here's Harcus on a decent.... steeper than it looks, etc.



The thing about riding w/ Harcus is that he just doesn't have any skin in the game!



Great time DCH, Kowboy and Lara

I was blown away with Lara's riding style and also how little stuff they haul.. This is all the stuff they had for 4 days of riding! It was really impressive... She was also on a 520!
