  1. There's some fun riding around Ramona and Palomar, which aren't too far from you. San Diego Dual Sport Map Ken is right about the DRZ's, they're excellent for someone looking for a first bike or a do it all bike. They're kind of like the SV650 of the dirt world. Sure there's faster bikes and bikes that are better at this or that, but the DRZs are reliable, inexpensive, and very competent machines, just like the SVs. Hard to beat the smiles per dollar ratio on them. See you on the trails.
  2. This really sucks, he was definitely one of the good ones. Only met him a few times but he was always extraordinarily friendly and eager to pass on some of his quite extensive knowledge. I only rode with him once, and while I was pushing and pulling and sweating and swearing, there he was just rolling along right next to me with a smile on his face, at what to him must have been a leisurely pace. He was a great rider and one heck of a bike wrench, too. I bought his DR650 and Suzuki themselves couldn't have set it up more perfectly if you gave them 50 grand. I barely knew him and he had a positive effect on me. Condolences to those that knew him well, and to those that never got the chance. Won't be able to attend the gathering due to work unfortunately, but I'll be there in spirit.
  3. Those are such excellent bikes and that's a great looking example. Really dig the muffler, too.
  4. Doh! Sorry I forgot to reply, transitioning from my old job of 10 years to a new job next week and things have been hectic. The 200 is a red sticker bike, unfortunately. I also have a WR250R but that seems like it would give up too much of the fun factor. Guess I'll have to buy that Beta 390RR I've been dreaming about.
  5. Is this for plated bikes only? Would a 200exc 2-stroke work well up there? Never been, but I've seen some pictures of BB that looked pretty gnarly.
  6. I've used Smugmug for a long time now and will probably keep using it forever. It's $40/year, but worth it in my opinion. Excellent.
  7. I've had a set of the cheap-o's from d2moto on the KLR for years. The IMS pegs are way better but the Chinese one's work fine for less than $15.
  8. I've got a shortened kickstand for a lowered DR650 if anybody wants it.
  9. I walked in there a couple weeks ago and picked up a Dunlop D606 130/17 for $89, which is right about what you find them for online. Guy was super cool, too. I'll definitely be going back.
  10. I've got a heavier spring for a WR250R or X. I think this is around 20% stiffer than stock, so if you're a biggin or you carry lots of stuff this might be just right for you. Free to a good home. Also have a used DR650 supermoto style fender. A bit faded and some scratches but free-diddley-dee.
  11. Sorry I don't have a spare, but if you're looking to purchase a cheap replacement, I'd recommend the "Ken Sean" mirrors off Amazon. Just DON'T order the Emgo mirrors because they are flat and you can barely see anything in them! The Ken Sean mirrors are slightly convex so you get a normal rear-view like you're used to. https://www.amazon.com/Ken-Sean-970510-Universal-Mirror/dp/B002302KK8/
  12. Hey I recognize that bike! I had some great times on that thing and it never gave me a bit of trouble. Super reliable and a blast to ride. Who ever buys it will love it.
  13. I'm thinking of selling my XR200. Fantastic bike to learn on. It's in great shape but runs a bit rough on the low end. I'm pretty sure it's a jetting issue because it starts great, idles great, and mid-range to top end is great otherwise. I don't have time to fiddle with it due to work and school, and with the supertrapp it's too noisy for me to troubleshoot in the alley. Previous owner bought it new and says he put very few hours on it, and I only rode it once. I bought it for $500 a few months ago and I'd sell it for the same.
  14. I've got one of those FMF pipes, brand new, never been used, part #020302 (http://www.fmfracing.com/Products/MX/651). Not sure it'll fit out of the box but I bet you can make it work. $40?
  15. I would suggest signing up as a novice so you can do the second loop. I'm sure you'd be fine. I've only done one enduro before and I did both loops (barely!). I watched a video of a previous year and it looks very similar to some Pine Valley beginner/intermediate trails, nothing real difficult. I'm pretty sure I'll be riding this event as well so maybe I'll see you there!
