Hey Peter . . . . .I've got a big c-clamp and a modded piece of aluminum we used to compress DFU's valves. You'll probe need four hands . . . . . . and two . . . . . . . . .

Lesson of the day? Always carry straps, a spark plug wrench (and any tools necessary to get to spark plug), a spare air filter and extra oil. And, most important, ALWAYS make sure your GoPro is filming during river crossings.

Hopefully there is no serious damage to the engine.
Where are you guys riding in the Sequatchie valley, I live there and don't know of any good DS riding areas. Come on, give it up!

Hope you all got out today, was great riding weather! A little windy at times, but Troy, 2Fast, Mrs. 2Fast, PsychoChem and I hit LBL. Had an incredible day, everything seemed perfect to me! Getting really, really pumped about the event in 3 weekends!

It's not too late to get involved, should a blast!

Dude, I live in Georgia and I know where it's at. In fact, I know several guys in Floriduh who know where it's at. You've gotta get with the program. You must not speak redneck or the locals would have turned you on to it by now.

We sent Sandalscout in first. If they were gonna shoot at something, Hi-Vis seemed to be the obvious choice.

So THAT is why you were riding slower today!!!! I'll not fall for the "Of course the VStrom is slower than the DRZ off pavement" in the future.

I went to the annual Moonshine Lunch Run this past weekend. Riding for 3+ hours in the rain sucked but the weather at the event was decent. Chilly, but no more rain during the rest of the weekend.

Here's a quick video with some of my still pics and Sjaak Lucassen's speech during the awards dinner as the sound track. More on Sjaak's Polar Ice Ride at http://r1goesextreme.com/

try as I might, I can not get the youtube player to embed?
