What track to you go to Eddy? I wonder how my WR would do riding around on one.

Jeff Munn, you have a friend request coming. I'd like to see some of these pics. Glad you're having a good time. Edit: Guess not, I can't find you.

I should've been more clear. The motor and tranny are no longer bolted together . I'm thinking that I need to either disconnect the prop shafts and unbolt the crossmember that the tranny rests on in order to slide it back. Or I need to drop the diff to slide the motor forward. Either way I need to get them further apart before the motor will lift up.

Shoot me a PM if you want to sell the extra motor.

Thanks. Good luck! I'll PM you with extraction/installation questions if you don't mind. Feel free to do the same. I don't know much about it, but I'm learning.. fast.

Search for Jeff Munn in the search for people heading. Several "Jeff Munns" will pop up. His is the one listed in Richmond.

For what ever reason, the only local Jeff Munn that pops up is from Chesterfield.

Charles City Dirt Riders Club.
http://www.ccdirtriders.org/
It's 1/2 mile from the Benjamin Harrison bridge. The land is owned by Bob White, owner of the now closed KTM dealer. He has a shop there and a barn/museum full of rare/old/race/motocross bikes (including Mike Barr's gorgeous, old, Pendelton).
It is a private track so it's never crowded. (On Sunday, Gabriel and I literally had the WHOLE place to ourselves for two hours!) You have two options to join 1. $75 up front and then $25 each day you ride or 2. A one time $700 fee and ride all you want all year (if you have kids under 18, they get to ride under your membership for free). The big track is maintained, groomed and irrigated (to keep down on the dust). There are four tracks (three of them are kiddie tracks), several woods trails, a obstacle area with tractor tires, etc. and a small oval track to practice your flat track/"feet up" power slides. Best of all, the people there are respectful and mindful of little ones on the track, one way traffic on the marked trails, it's very family friendly, no drunks and no 4-wheelers.

A few days after Jeff and Joe but I finally made it to Wheels through time..

I'm not much for harley stuff but seeing the old American iron was a treat. All the race bikes were great too.

I knew it would be good when I walked up to the door and it smelled like a garage.

If you are ever in the area you have to check it out. Maggie Valley is gorgeous too and it's not far to the BRP.

Stood up and tried to walk out and collapsed again. Found inmate "nuggets" and got a quick ride back to the garage.

Dr visit yesterday, he's thinking I tore my MCL and possibly ACL. Just got back from MRI this morning and should know tomorrow the full extent.
ouch!!! heal fast

on a lighter note, found the HD shop in Bridgetown, ( hey you can't stay on the beach every day )



they don't sell bikes, just pricey stuff

Looking for Fredericksburg area riders

Hey, I'm located in Fredericksburg, VA. I bought a Dakar last november and rode it through the winter and this summer so far. I've only had one real maintenance concern and I paid Morton's BMW to do the rear brake pads, fluids, and an oil change. Don't get me wrong, those dudes are great guys and did good work but I would like to do my own maintenance.

I have built a Nissan Xterra from complete stock into a capable overland/expo style vehicle and do all my own maintenance on that. Not being able to do so with the bike is bothering me. I've read, re-read, and read again, many of the FAQs on this forum and the so called Chain Gang forum. I feel like I have a fairly good understanding of alot of the tech side of things but when it comes down to learning it, I learn best by putting hands on. Here lies my problem. I'm hesitant to start taking stuff apart on a vehicle that I don't have experience on yet.

So, two things, I'm looking for local riders that may want to get out some this summer but also looking for riders that may be getting together for what we call "mod days" when we would take some of the "newbies" and kind of teach them their way around the basics of the Xterra. Not looking for a class, just someone that may be doing some maintenance that doesn't mind having an audience/helping hand there to gain some experience. Even just preventetive maintenance type work would be great. Something to gain a little experience versus diving in with no "voice of wisdom" there.

The BMWBMW Club often has tech days every now and then. They have even used Mortons to host the tech days. That sounds like what you're looking for.
