Hey mrt10x, a new chain stretches very quickly and will hop off the bar if not retightened often enough. That usually doesn't cut your hand off , but can mess up the bar and chain as well as scaring the krapp out of you. I'll be there in the morning and join the afternoon ride.

It's a shit show over here!!

I was loading the bike on my trailer and noticed at least one fork seal is blown out but I thought I'd take it easy on the bike and fix it during the week.. So I load everything up and I'm heading out and about a mile down the road the trailer starts bouncing around. The hub on one of the wheels had broken in half, bearings just flopping around in there...



so now I'm trying to source a new hub since my trailer and car are sitting at a gas station in town...

will I make it out there this weekend sometime? we shall see...

If I make it home tonight from DC I will be there tomorrow, either on the DRZ400 or the CRF230.

No bikes at Clydes or 5 Guy's, I'm either too fast or too far behind

If kickstands are up at 10, I'll pick you up at 8-ish.
