'Freak, nice vid, nice ride, nice music. Gotta love the classical gas.

That's what the weather's like, NOW?!? So if I take my xrr to NM, can I put my tent on your lawn for a few weeks?

I should take a look at the 'advrider tent space' thread and put together an 'escape the winter migratory tour' around the warmer spots...follow the birds.

Thanks guys,

The riding around here actually sucks, I made that film using computer graphics. We've got 4' of snow on the ground with freezing rain. What ever you do don't come to NM to go riding

FP, actually the weather was perfect, high 50s, comfortable temps with all the gear on. Don't know how much longer it will last tho.

Nice work. You must be handier with video editing than I am. In that case, I'm just going to head out and ride in the rain until I get stuck in the snow in the local hills. Thanks for saving me a trip south!

Just kidding

Phil, I feel for you as I came from the east. If you can get down this way I'll show ya some real nice riding (got to take care of the northern brethren). We got it in all flavors from mountain singletrack to WFO desert.

Nice video Chris. I wanted to go riding with you guys out there, but I busted up my ankle pretty good riding the DRZ a couple weekends ago at southern . Now the BRP is just sitting in the garage looking all dejected and dusty.

Mike, that sucks. Let me know when you're ready to ride we head over the Mesa. There's some huge sandy hills that are perfect for the XRR.

For two days now, I have been trying to figure out how to get my XRR in Atlanta and my buddies bikes in Indy and St. Louis to New Mexico for a ride with RideFreak.

Let's see... how many days off to tow the bikes out? Where can I find a 20 year old kid with nothing to do to pick up the bikes and tow them out for us...

You know, the basic thinking process you go through as you sit in your cube or office.

Then, I arrive home. My 21year daughter is in town from college for the holiday and there sitting in my kitchen is a male friend of hers from high school. The bells start ringing! Now here's a good, honest, 21 year old with nothing but time on his hands.

RideFreak, beware! I am scheming here in the ATL.

Dave

It's supposed to snow Sunday The place in the video isn't that high up (6500'~7000') so it still might be ok to ride. Hate to be back there when it got muddy though, trails here tend to get real slick when wet.

You don't lose the clutch, you just don't have to manually operate it anymore. On a powerful bike like the XRR, there is really no need to ever have to manually release the clutch. I can wheelie in 3rd easily and lift the front wheel for a log with just a twist of the wrist. The Rekluse always slips just enough to get into the powerband in whatever gear you are in. And if not abused, it will put less wear on the plates than with the stock set up. I have the original plates in my 2003 CRF450 that has had the Rekluse for 6 1/2 years.

Also, if you get rid of the clutch lever, you can mount the rear brake lever on the left bar. Now that is a valuable tool!!

The trials tire is the best in the slimy, root infested woods we ride in. I didn't believe it till I tried it either. Knobbies don't even compare.

Yep, these guys do. It's a combination 27/17mm wrench.
