Dunno if the ape will start, and I'm not real enthused with dragging all that polished aluminum through the slop. The hot set up would be an enclosed trailer, though I don't make Boomer-money.

The WR seems to run well no matter the temp, Though I haven't tried it in the teens yet.

WR, If the Ape starts and runs... It is just plain cheating.

You do make Boomers money - you just keep adding bikes to the garage. The WR isnt going to be any fun out there. You shoulda looked into that 5x8 that ...madwrench(?) was lookin to get rid of

It's impossible to suck on MF1 tires. There's just always people way faster


Looking at the site for the 3 hour. Hopefully we have ice by Jan 19. Doesn't leave much time for people to get some rides in beforehand.

For grins, I read the rules. The only approved screws are sheet metal screws. You guys better take all them kold kutters out

Too fast for the woods, Too slow for the road... But makes really neat noise and is fun to look at.

Well that rains on the parade I had going in my mind.

So who has an '06 WR250F that they want to trade for an 01 DRZ400E with a plate?
