OK, my thrills are riding a motorcycle...my daughter gets her thrill from firing a 155mm Howitzer.

Did you get a new chain and sprockets yet?

Also, I have your rim whenever you want it, just lemme know.

New sprocket (aluminum sprockets suck), new chain guide (aluminum instead of that flimsy ass plastic OEM), new chain, rear disk brake protector and pumper carb, it will pull the front wheel like a champ now.

Sweet, sounds sick. Skyler's xr is pretty nice stock, I can imagine with a new carb it would be much better. Can't beat the simplicity either!

Oh, James, one more thing. Tell Skyler to get rid of the flimsy little stock foot pegs, they are the worst. I got some XR's Only pegs and they make the bike all that much more fun to ride.

Dude, That is bad ass! You keep buying the bikes that I want next to my X in the garage. Have a great trip to Moab, I want to go next year for sure. Be safe and ride on! Phil

Who wants a Guzzi??

Hello all, just thought I'd chime in and let you'se know that I just put the Guzzi up for sale on the Tucson CL... if anybody is interested, just go to CL and search for "1998 Moto Guzzi V11EV". I have no intention of cluttering up this thread about it, so if you are interested you can call the # in the ad or shoot me a PM.

Thanks!

Happy Valley

Mike and I rode Happy Valley today - valley east of the Ricons down into Benson.

1st half was graded and fast - good views




More



But then the road got rough - Mike takes a fall:




Took a side canyon and found some good Az single track:




Even had an arch:



Great Tucson spring riding.
