I can't believe you are dumping Helga (insert photo of German shot-putter here) for that hot little Eye-talian sweetie from the Fiat 500 Abarth commercial.

Congratulations on your Multistrada, Steve !

Just look at that beautiful low fender, i knew you had good taste.


Hey Brian, bummer about Don's chain wadding up on the trail. On the bright side, you got to pull back on your 530's throttle on the way back to get the truck

Anyone know where I can get a spoke & nipple?

Well, I broke a spoke while riding my wife's XT225 and she is not happy. Have been calling around but no dealers are open today. If someone has one that I can buy that would be great also. Any suggestions on who to call?

Thanks

Kinda' like women. We all look for one that performs at a high level that we fall in love with. Didn't fall in love with the BMW. By the way my 37th wedding anniversary is Thursday so I got that part figured out

Nipple

GooseR6, we got six XT 225s in our training fleet at Washtenaw Community College and they break a lot of spokes. Not sure if we have any in stock right now. Which side do you need, I think they're different. I don't think you can buy singles either.

There were some last time we worked on the bikes. I know because I checked all the XT's for broken spokes. They do seem to like to break spokes.

I am looking for the rear sprocket side spoke. If you could let me know that would be great. I will buy a couple of spokes/nipples off of you.

Thanks-
Mark

Why's that, you can wear one pair four times. Front to back, back to front, indside out front to back and indside out back to front. That's like two bikes for Dfrnt.

The sound is the best in the industry. Does that one have a dry clutch?

What happened to old school kick start?

Yeah, dry clutch. Sounds fantastic with the Remus cans.

Somewhere a few pages back, folks suggested some moto-only trails to try.

We just did Hunt Creek Saturday. Holy Whooop sections. It's been 4 days and my quads are still smoked.

My buddy rode the whole loop, his first time on trails, on an ol' PE175. When we got back to camp, we realized he'd been riding on a flat front tire, no idea how long. The rim strip was flopping out of the tire.

We're looking to get back out in a few weeks- Maybe Evart again? Something within 3 hours to take off from here early Sunday morning, right, and roll back home.

Tomohawk looked too far. What's a must do within about 180 miles?

Evart is great trail, but there are sections with a lot of whoops.

North Missaukee has some great tight single track without any whoops and it is pretty close.

Tomahawk is worth the drive, we do parts of it for TCHC.
