That dude's kickin it...


I left the 45 on the rear and went with a 16 on the front from KTM for the rubber dampning, it helped. If you go much higher than that it hurts off road..

Good to know. I just ordered a 16T front and a steel 45T rear. Aluminum sprockets and I don't get along for very long.

I'll see how it goes with the 16T. If it's still too low for the types of riding I'll be doing with that bike I can get a 17T front and/or a 42T rear.

DRZ400 Wheelie

WOW! I never even considered trying to ride a wheelie on a flat tire. Before I put new shoes on the pig I've got to give that a try. Makes some sense it would be easier.

Some very good reading for good wheelies is here... http://www.stuntlife.com/forums/443-...ing-basic.html

I am not a great wheelie rider but sure do enjoy it on private land.

ABSOLUTELY....Working on it now. I just need to finish the other "true work" related projects. All I need is a few guys and/or gals to volunteer for filming and I think thats already been said and done. Film schedule to be released soon now that the weather is getting better.

I just got a PM from a person that had come to the meeting once and in response to a PM I sent him (Luau invitation). The previous PM he sent was "I only showed up to the meeting once and haven't been there since, I don't think its appropriate for me to attend". So I replied, "We are Hawaiian, everyone is welcome in our book". Then he replied "I don't mean to be rude, but you guys are too wierd hugging and stuff, I'm a private person". So I just sent back to him "That's too bad you feel that way. Maybe you'll get to know us down the line. No more hugs I promise. You're still welcome."

My perception of people like this person (I wont mention names in case anyone knows him) is that they don't understand Robin and I nor Hawaiian Hospitality. Robin and I were brought up in the Hawaiian culture believing that everyone (related or not) is treated like family. Its a clich้' but in Lilo and Stitch they said it right "Ohana means Family and that means no one is left behind". Its a VERY true statement which we live by. Its just the way we are and some people cant handle it. No fault and no wrongs on anyone if they feel like this too (its just the way they are). We don't turn anyone away and are willing to help out anyone (especially strangers) when they are in need. We do things just to be kind like we would our own families.

We make friends everywhere we go and from all over the world. It is just our "ways". There is no hidden agenda nor expectation a favor or kindness in return. Its a sort of permanent Pay it Forward.

So PMer, we (Robin and I), extend kindness regardless. We are not asking for anything or expecting anything. If you think its weird that we are so open about things, its just the way we are. We won't judge you by feeling wierd about us, so please don't judge us by considering people we meet as brothers and sisters "FAMILY", especially since we are all Dual Sport enthusiasts.

Aloha from Arizona
