Big Up's to your shop man. Took the SE wheels in to have tires mounted and went and picked them up yesterday with baby boy. Was going to have two new tubes put in. But they did not have an HD rear for a 140/80-18. So insteaded of slappen in some junk they left the HD tube the I already had in the rear. Good looking out.


Me thinks she may get some grip now.....



And managed to get a lil Anti-seize on the boy......



Was planning on showing up at DN this morning but life gets in the way sometimes. Hit some local dirt/logging roads and shook down the 450 some more. Gotta do something about the forks. They are beyond harsh. Might try raising the oil level a little to see if that helps.

Looks like I am going to bail, but I don't think the registration is transferable.

I seriously doubt it since the lots that people ride on back there are owned by BT Holding III, LLC (Big 10 tires) which is in bankruptcy. The other lot is owned by Taylor Farms Land Company. I doubt any of these "companies" would throw out nails. They wouldn't want that liability, Companies handle grievances in the courts. If they wanted riders off the property, they would have asked the police to handle that.

You'd be surprised. But I guess if there's an agreement on access (someone knows someone who said they could ride back there) then it's probably not likely. It was just a thought.

VERY possible, I would think.

Regardless of how or why, it is still a douchebag move. Shall whomever is responsible contract a communicable disease and have to lance huge bumps on their boy (or girl) parts for the rest of time........

Getting ready for the Shen

Just pulled both wheels for some fresh bearings and brake pads. Fork tubes removed and ready to drop off at Cycle World for rebuild. Rear shock coming off tomorrow (if I can get it off without knocking the bike on the floor)

My Thoughts Exactly. Especially after a little girl warned me about the 'screws' on the trail as I was leaving. But, it's cool. ADVENTURE RIDING...

Did you ever decide when you were driving up there?
