Fingers crossed...

Took her for a test run on the golf course until I got chased off

Sweeeet!!! The YZ's good to ride :-)

Check out her new shoes




Old oil going out


New oil going in (going in both the bike and the body)


I replaced the brake fluid with this but didn't have enough hands to do the job and take pics at the same time


Adjusted, cleaned and lubed the chain, put anti-seize on the adjusting bolts as suggested too. (thanks SouthWestRider)


I took her around the neighborhood and checked the fork seals for leaks when I got back, she looks good to go.

Anyone up for a short trail ride Tomorrow? I wanna see how she goes before I leave her in the garage and head up to Torroweep for the weekend.

Brian,

Sweet looking little bike. I have not been on a 2 stroke since I was a kid and would love to give it a little spin sometime!!!


Update on Toroweap:

http://forecast.weather.gov/showsigwx.php?warnzone=AZZ001&warncounty=AZC015&firewxzone=AZZ102&local_place1=&product1=Hazardous+Weather+Outlook#.UhVhaJ3n-1s


Worst case if the mud is to bad will be to explore the North Rim

Bill

That doesn't look good at all. Nobbies are going to make for a real interesting time of it if we do get rain on the road too.

Well Bill, If it gets too muddy we just have to put the guy with the biggest bike up front to plow a path for us.

Bluhduh No Toroweap for me.

As much as I hate to say it, I won't be making the trip this weekend. After 2 weeks of doing nothing at work, suddenly we're busier than Michael Jackson in a day care center. It's good to have the work but I was really looking forward to this trip.
Have fun, post lots of pictures and I'll see you on the next one.
Loren

Damn, sorry to hear that Loren. We will have to do the Winslow ride soon or another nice long one so you can get away for a few days.

Nope, taking the S10 on this one. If I was taking the 2 stroke I'd be on the side of the fence of the guys hoping for a bit of rain cause she'll be fun in the mud. Now, not so much.

The tent's been put away though, I'm gonna do the credit card camping this time cause I don't wanna get washed into the Colorado river

Brian there will be plenty of room in the cabin. I am bringing a sleeping bag. The floor is better for my back anyway. There are 6 of us going and we have a room that accommodates 6, so we are good.

I was down in JoMama and saw this video. I guess my issues are pretty insignificant. This guy is absolutely amazing!

I'm looking forward to seeing the S10 go down the trail. Well, at least for the few seconds that it's still within site.

Children Riding Moto

I just bought my 7 year old son a TTR 90 and will be teaching him pretty soon to ride.

Who else has kids that are riding, or will be.

I want to plan a morning at some point where the kids can get together and learn from eachother. I am sure my son will be sick of my coaching in a few weeks.

At first my son will ride in the desert right next to my house. If he gets comfortable soon, I would like to take him to the OHV play area at Bulldog canyon.

Let me know if anyone is interested.
