Balls

Lol, all in due time. I want a bit more bite, but also want it to not sound like a freight train on the highway

Loud knobs (and pipes) save lives

Bruno,

Glad you could come up for a ride. Nothing better than a Sunday Swamp tour. It's to bad Josh couldn't make it since we rode all his old stopping grounds.

Yeah, sorry I missed it.

Mike, I remember when you would avoid mud and water. Lately it seems like you are loving it. What gives?

He's got issues alright (and anyone who dares to follow him ).

I swear that's water coming out of his muffler;

Wow, looks like a blast. Some of that mud is DEEP though! lol. Were you guys planning on returning there this weekend coming up since some of us couldn't make it due to the rain? If so, I'll find any excuse for the wife to let me go.

I've yet to try my pig on single track. It handles like my YZ did on road, but we'll see how it goes off-road.

Me, or the guys in the video? I'm not sure if I do or not. Shouldn't take much to change them out though. I've never had an issue with wheel bearings on any of my previous bikes. I guess I could rinse the area with some bottled water before I hit the expressway though to swish everything out.

And being carbonated it helps force the mud out of the bearings. Kind of like scrubbing bubbles.

Good idea.

Being that I'm riding a Pig, do I technically need to wash it? Ever?

I don't wash my bikes. Some people do. The thing is, after riding all day, our bikes look the same.
