  1. Some pics from the awesome BAR 10 ride
  2. I ride there a lot and would like to help, but it's kinda short notice. Can't make it tomorrow, but in the future, with some notice would love to help out.
  3. Get the bike running, come on up to Primm / Good Springs, and ride the loop. It is a very fun ride. And since you've driven 400 miles to do a day ride you might as well do the whole rest of the Bar10 ride. It is even more funner. Because Crawdaddy is all about fun.
  4. I'm ready! I need a riding partner for the Good Springs loop on Friday.
  5. Dave, Stay away from Harbor Fright for this job. Check out Marshalls Industrial Hardware for a quality hardened steel drill and quality easy out. http://marshallshardware.com/
  6. Is anyone currently using this radio? Good? Bad? Do you know if it uses the same antenna connector as the UV-5? It looks like it uses the same "Kenwood type" mic connector. It is "waterproof". Thinking about an upgrade from the UV-5? My UV-5 sits outside my pack and has been in the rain a few times. It still works, but might be good to have a "waterproof" radio hanging out there. It's about $45.
  7. Just in the rear: I ran a Moto Z Hybrid one time. I liked the MT43 better. The Hybrid didn't seem to have "straight line stability"? Not sure if that is the right way to describe it. It would just kick out to the side sometimes. It just felt weird to me. I now mostly run Maxxiss Desert IT. Used to run MT43 almost everywhere, but I got a sidewall puncture in one and now stick with the tough Desert IT.
  8. Seth, Best wishes. Keep us posted on your new adventures, ya douche.
  9. Brother in law is selling his bike. I think it's only got something like 70 hours on it. He doesn't ride it much. He is a big guy and the suspension was redone for him. If your interested I can give you his cell # Hey Jim, here's some new photos of bike and hour meter. Bike is a 2006 525xc. Lots of bolt on stuff. Have extra original large tank and 2 extra seats. Precision Concepts suspension front and back. Heavy white rear spring. Scott's stabilizer that was rebuilt 15 hours ago. New chain and guides. Tires are in great shape. Forgot price in orig post $4500
  10. Arrows? There were arrows?
  11. No swampyness. It was great !! I thought those green pasture areas might be wet too. But nope, just fine.
  12. Great Ride! Skeelo221, Ranger and myself rode Sat and Sun. The rains made for AWESOME dirt. Did all of Mammoth Loop Sat. Bodie loop Sun. We skipped the far eastern portion where you get into Nevada and shortcut on the easy way over to the Bodie railway. That is some really cool stuff. Really liked the old railway cut. I didn't get any pics. Skeelo221 took a bunch I hope he posts 'em up. Thanks Chris, Lisa, Jacob, Brian.
  13. I did this ride a few years ago. Awesome ride! VCMC does an excellent job. They have a bunch of routes to choose from which gets everyone spread out. We only saw a few other riders during the two days of riding. I don't remember it being too difficult. Woodcutter is this awesome single track trail that is like 30 miles long. It was technical but not "beat you up" difficult. I'm an intermediate rider, not expert, and had no problem. Do it! I would, but I'm riding the CORE Bar10 ride the weekend prior. Mrs Amgems would be upset if I didn't cut the grass for 2 weekends in a row.
  14. 1 xl for me please Thanks
