  1. How to do one handed 360's

    A lighter bike and an over inflated rear tire helps too.
  2. How to do one handed 360's

    I had to try it ,,,
  3. Me and the cowboy had a good ride today. We started at Fawnskin and rode Redonda ridge from big pine flats going to deep creek. Then did Devels hole and back the easy way. Somebody did trail maintenance on Redonda and I'm not sure I like it. The first bit is easier with lots of rocks cleared off the steep bit. I'm pretty sure the cowboy would have made it up had I not dumped it right in front of him blocking the path. The part I don't like is the "V" shaped rock section is filled in with big rocks. Hmmm. Found a stuck truck and later the owner who said "I went the wrong way". Photos ...
  4. I can come up and ride on Friday. (I have other commitments for the weekend.) I want to do something fairly short like ride redonda ridge and white mtn so you have lots of tread left on your tires to ride with Kenny.
  5. RJ, the owner of All American KTM ( Now closed ) is giving tech talks at Poway Power sports. I went last night and it was pretty good. RJ knows what he's talking about and it really was worth going for me. Apparently, he has 8 prepared discussions that he will rotate through, but he likes talking about motorcycles so questions get pretty good answers, even if they are off topic. Topics for 10/2: Fuel injected systems, problems and maintenance. Basic suspension service ( he replaced a fork seal on an open chamber fork showing us all the parts and tools req'd). But the discussion when way deeper than that. He talked about fuel: Av gas, race fuel, mixing fuel, Ethanol fuel, avoiding Ethanol fuel, effects of lead in fuel, effects of octane at higher altitudes and fuel additives. He talked about brake fluid - I've been using that stuff for a long time and I learned something. How to get your Estart only KTM going in the field with a low battery. How to tune your suspension, Adjusting for stability vs cornering, adjusting trail (not sure I was getting that part), air forks, the different types of forks, setting sag and more. He talked about a lot more and invited us to email him questions. I'm not promoting anything ( except maybe my videos ) and don't get anything from Poway power sports. I usually buy stuff at C&D, (where I also pay full price). But I got on the invite list by talking to Melo at Poway Power Sports. Probably anyone there could get you on the list if you want to go. Here's my promo and a request. Video from the Sept 23 Sprint Enduro. Can someone tell me if they see a "subscribe" button in it? I followed the youtube instructions, but it only shows for users that are signed in and not a subscriber. So, it probably works but I haven't seen it. From my last video, someone suggested that I give some background info on my bike and the ride. So, I put that in this one. Here's the video. Pete 619.977.9865
  6. I added up my times from the photo i took of my fender card, and they match what I found online! I officially like the results and will probably do the series next year. Here's my instantiation of Devon's idea. I think it will work. Used 2 loop clamps and made a bracket to connect them.
  7. The broken tab is on the inside of the frame so access would be through the shock or airbox area. Talked to Steve at C&D and he said no problem welding on the frame. But I like TexasDualler's idea better.
  8. This was like civilized racing and I like it. You can start with your buddies and regroup at the end of the section. You can even choose to start a section behind the experts that would otherwise be blasting past you. My bike definitely did better in the sand with the forks dropped down in the tripleclamp. Sadly, I broke an exhaust hanger and might have to do a big tear down to weld it back on. Anybody know a good way to fix this let me know. I'm also including a picture of the fender card so you see how they record your times for each section.
  9. Wow. Now I know why they didn't let any novice riders do the second loop. Those hills look really steep from a camera that tends to make things look flatter than they really are.
  10. I'm in. I really don't know what to expect but I'll be up Saturday night and will try and finish. If it's fun, I may do the series next year.
  11. I did the national hare and hound at Panaca NV last month and wanted to share. This was probably my best ride even though there really wasn't any hills or technical sections. There was lots of sandy washes and some silt and I dropped the bike several times in it. Since this race I've modified my bike to be more stable in sand but have not ridden enough to know if it helped or not. This was my first race after transitioning to the lighter 2 stroke (2011 KTM 250XC). This vid is just helmet cam footage with some narration. Comments are appreciated. If anyone wants to work on videos let me know. Pete 619.977.9865 Sorry I couldn't make the meeting - I bowl on wednesday nights.
  12. I'm sure somebody could Shred the single tracks with a 650 but I'll stick to my 300. I'll be out there about 11:30 for an hour or so to test some test some jetting changes. Orange 300 and blue 150.
  13. Anyone want to go ride McCain midweek? Do single track stuff for an hour or two?
  14. BBTR is having a breakfast meeting this Saturday and they normally do a ride afterwards. I came up early to get out of the heat. Really nice up here now ... the car was showing 79 when I parked. If anyone is up here and wants to ride Friday let me know. Otherwise, I'll head out to Big Pine flats campground and to some short rides around there. Here's my latest race video from late May. This video has really entertaining audio at about 8:30 from the text on the splash screen. Also, I tryed to use my phone as the antagonist of the ride. Hopefully it's not too corny.

    The 300 vs 500 is interesting. First off, I regularly do balance training exercises, and I'm way better on the 300. Next I can keep my intended track more often. I hope this translates into making it up the bigger hills. Also, I really like the rekluse on the 500, but I don't think I need one on the 300. I'm actually having fun with the clutch. For high end power and overall reliability, the 500 is the winner for me. I used to ride a Bultaco Persang so I'm having fun playing with a two stroke again.
