  2. My van developed a fuel leak Friday, so we didn't go. I'm hoping that between the Q silencer, flywheel weight, and 6000' elevation, that it will be tamed down to within reason. We will also have the TTR125 along, but he is pretty anxious to get on the KX and make it work.
  3. This is what I wanted when I was 17 I bought one when I was 18. I still have it.
  4. BTW after not having a 2 stroke dirt bike for a while, this thing sounds AWESOME
  5. I should mention that we would only be up for the 21/22, and we will bring our motorhome. It sounds like there are plenty of options, which is good. He is coming off a TTR 125, so this is going to be quite a step. I have a spark arrestor and flywheel ordered, which should tame it down a bit. We are looking to go to Lark Sunday AM for a shakedown. There is a chance that my wife and daughter will meet us up there Saturday afternoon, but how much riding they will want to do is unpredictable. If you don't have a rig that can haul 3 bikes, I can have my wife drive my van and then we could use that to haul the trailer to the trailheads.
  6. I know a 14 year old who just got a KX100, so we might come up. It is going to be a big jump up for him, so we might be unable to join you on rides depending on difficulty. Can you post up campground coordinates?
  7. 300 Top End Advice

    I have had that happen- the ring locating pin coming loose and doing a bunch of damage. I had the cylinder repaired, probably by Milennium. It was a while ago. At least get a repair evaluation on the cylinder. Knock the high spots off the head and you should be fine there. If you wanted to be a maniac, you could get the head resurfaced, but I'm not sure you would be able to tell the difference. As for the bottom end, split the cases and take a look. There is a good chance there is nothing down there, but it isn't that much more of a job if you are able to pull the top end off, and you need something to do anyway while the cylinder is away. At this point, it isn't worth the risk of damaging another cylinder+piston to avoid the couple of hours it would take to pull it apart and take a look.
  8. Lake Isabella

    Made it up Saturday night after dealing with some home drama, and did some exploring Sunday and Monday. Sunday we rode the roads and Jeep trails out past the end of Keyesville road, and then found the Kern Canyon Trail Sunday and rode the first bit of it before running out of time. Duncan is coming along, he was able to get through the downhill switchbacks by himself. There looks to be lots more to go back for, and we are looking forward to it. Thanks to Pasta Pilot for the guidance.

    Is Keyesville open camping or do I need to find a spot in a campground?
  10. Lake Isabella

    Looking to make it happen this weekend. Same general desire, two track trails to take the kids. If I can break away to do some other exploring, that would be a bonus. If someone has a cool place to camp, I would be interested in hearing about it. TIA
  11. Easy way to create GPX route trace

    Back when Google maps was friendlier for this kind of thing, that is what I would use, and then use GPS Visualizer to save as a GPX. Now, I think you can do your planning in Furkot and save out from there. You can bring GPX files into Google Earth. That can be really helpful.
  12. Lake Isabella

    It is going to have to happen a different time, since both kids have gotten sick. If anyone wants to go riding between now and New Years at Lark or Corral or whatever, I'm game.
  13. I'm looking to go riding later this week/ this weekend with my kids and considering going up to the Lake Isabella area. I'm looking for 2 track roads and fairly easy trails. I've never been and a know there are some members who are familiar with the area, so advice would be welcome. Our backup plan is to go to Hungry Valley, which I think has enough of the terrain I'm looking for.
  14. I haven't done a trip report, but this is from our ecliipse trip. 990 on the slickrock trail in Moab, and then Duncan in the area we camped in the Malhuer National Forest near Prairie City.
