    Kernan on a Big Bike...

    Well done. I wouldn't want to tackle that trail with such a big bike. Even though you say it's "only" 450lbs LOL! All that loose rock with such weight sounds pretty sketchy.
  3. Got to try out my evaporative cooling vest today at McCain. Seemed to work pretty good. Not sure how long it will last but it was still damp after 2 hours of slow going in high 80's. Wore it under my under armour which was under my jersey.

    Tech talk taco Tuesday

    "Tons of experience and knowledge distilled down to easy listening shop talk..." Yeah, it's perfect to play in the background while you're out fussing with the scoot.

    Xplor Forks - DIY 15min revalve ! Testers needed.

    I had George put a set on my 500 EXC. Haven't really had a chance to test them out yet. I'm hoping they'll help out in the Dez.

    Anyone using HaulBikes right now?

    How interesting. I've got a friend here in Ramona that has shipped, via truck, a sea container full of household possesions back east. They went with a smaller company that came with good reviews (don't know the name). Their experience sounds a lot like yours: it's been 4 weeks and the company can't (or won't) even tell them where it is or when it will be delivered. They were originally told it would take about a week. Maybe it's something to do with these Covid times....?

    questions about hitch mounted bike carrier?

    I'm like you. I went with an aluminum one that I've used for a few years now with no problems. When I was using it on my old 4Runner it definitely sagged the rear down and made the front end feel light. I'm now using it with a newer Honda Ridgeline and with that suspension it rides and drives just fine. Be sure and use some kind of anti-sway bracket - that makes a big difference. I thought I would like the Ultimate MX hauler and I got an old one from a guy but it was way too heavy to lug around and the securing set-up made me nervous.
  11. Don't let the heat stop you. We had some great night rides last year with Darren leading the pack. I was surprised to learn that even when it was over 100 degrees at night, when you don't have direct sunlight hitting you it's really not too bad.

    If no takers, you might consider donating them to a local prison.

    Good buddy of mine just brought in his bike to C&D cycles (where I now work) and put it on consignment. It's only got 3.2 hours on it and he's tricked it out with a bunch of stuff: -RaceTech spring conversion for the AER fork, sprung for 190lb rider (he also brought in the original internals). I met him at the track in Lake Elsinore and got to compare it to my '17 300 XC with the air forks-I was very impressed with how much better his forks were. -TM designs rear shark fin -ProMoto billit spark arrestor endcap -Acerbis front disc guard and hand shields -Skidplate (I believe TM designs) -P3 pipe guard Owner is a 62 yr-old, Novice level rider that has three bikes and decided he likes the 150tpi better. It's better then new and not even broken in yet! Asking $8400 obo PS: All his personal vehicles are like this, including his car and truck. Anything he puts up for sale is ALWAYS a great deal.
