Have fun out there. If I wasn't going to Canukman's, I'd be glad to put some miles on with you. The XR can just about get around the loop on it's on, like autopilot. Just with the flow.

My bike is alive again

So after the valve guides cracking and locking up my motor on my 05 wr250f was done I proceeded to rebuild it. Just finished and got her running today. Did a 290cc big bore with all new valves and guides and some head porting. She rips
Anyone doing the loop this weekend ?

I had seen that one before, but I still laughed out loud a bunch of times.

I can't tell you how many times I've pulled it over backwards like the Santa guy, while learning to wheelie. Still do it occasionally to this day.

The distance that a person can ride a wheelie, is directly proportional to the number of rear fenders they have purchased.
