  1. These guys make this look so easy ... Sounds like they do multiple shows a day. You need to pay extra for them to do it in slow motion.

    Big Bear Tomorrow 9/6

    Yeah, I felt bad passing without stopping. ( I said "hi" as I passed.) I didn't stop because I was doing a timed run. That was my 4th time doing that route in that direction. 13 minutes through John bull and 21 minutes over Gold mtn in my direction of travel. I'm sure someone is thinking that there's "noexcuse4that". What was funny to me is I knew there was some other single rider doing on the path from my previous runs. (it had rained so the tracks were obvious.) Most of the time my choice of line matched his. But a few time's I was thinking ... he went over there? On the next run I took his line and think it was a better choice.

    Sounds like me. Is this you? https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GrlQvVd04FuGPBLhDdKf566IQ-UCjG7X That's a fun track. Not sure when I'm going up again but it would be fun to do some runs together. I'm riding with an Inreach but way better to ride with someone.

    Big Bear Tomorrow 9/6

    what trails did you ride? I was up there this week. I was riding from White mtn through John Bull and Gold. Someone else was riding solo on that track. Good weather for riding.

    BBTR Big Bear Run

    I ran a mousse front and rear so i didnt have to carry anything having to do with fixing a flat. Traction was not my issue - overheating was. I'm 60 also and I like the hill climbs. Too bad I can't seem to get that plaque.

    BBTR Big Bear Run

    Devon, I would have bet money you would have finished. Damn. My gps started acting up before I even got to 38 Special. (It wouldn't show the trail if zoomed in enough to be useful.) 38 was a zoo when I was going up a little after 9. My 300, with no fan, also overheated and I had to wait for it to cool down. But the 300 with the Shinko cheater 505 tire was way better at climbing that hill than my 500. After 38 I tagged along with others to mostly stay on track. Finally gave up on the way to Redonda. With the cooler weather I thought this might be my year. Doubtful I'll try again in the normal heat.
  8. I took a riding class from Destry last year and thought he was a good instructor. My turning is definitely better as a result. I signed up for the April 28 group class. Thought I'd share this in case anybody is thinking about training. It's in west Phoenix area.
  9. Test 3 is the same both days too. The ISDE guys do all three loops 2 times Saturday and Sunday. My class did tests 1 and 2 three times on Saturday. Tough race that didn't go my way ... ended up in fourth. Test 3 might just be more fun than I'm rated for. But, the drive through the desert was amazing. I dont think I've ever seen the Desert with so much green, yellow and purple. Good luck to our other racers!
  10. My class is riding on the Saturday track. But I'm sure the Sunday track will be more fun. I just rode the Idaho NHHA round 3 so I'm ok with easy this weekend. See you there.

    I don't get it

    Here's a very short clip from today's Sprint enduro. Can some of the race guys on here offer an opinion on what happened here. I interpreted the "race officials" were directing me to go to my right but the track is straight ahead, and they all know it. Did I get some bad directions here? in the first two seconds of this video, I see two race officials pointing to my right. I lost a 1:32 by going up the road. A friend of mine argued with the guy and got through. Was I just an idiot to not argue with them? I thought we were supposed to do what they say? There might have been a rider down ahead on the trail but I didn't see anyone. All of these guys knew where I was supposed to go. I don't get it? Other than that, the race was really good. Good challenging terrain and marked pretty well. Two thumbs up for Hill Toppers MC Bad_direction.mp4
  12. RJ is still doing the tech talks on Tuesday nights at 6:30. Last night it was field repairs and changing a tire. I wasn't really thinking I was going to get much out of it, but step 1 was new to me. 'Press the brake caliber in a bit before you do anything, and the disk will go back between the pads much easier.' (He demo's this stuff so you know what he's talking about even if my decsription is lacking) The other tire stuff was an interesting review or a different method. And there was the cool tire changing tool and pizza at the break. He also talked about restarting your bike after taking it under water. That was good stuff but I'll stay out of the deep stuff. The next talk is in 2 weeks on suspension. If your interested, call poway power sports and ask about the tech talks with RJ. Disclaimer: I buy stuff from C&D and don't get free stuff from anybody so this is not a Poway promotional thing. But RJ knows what he's talking about and it's worth my time to go. Get there early to get a seat.

    Neck Brace Study

    I've been wearing one for several years and it was very uncomfortable until I got the chest protector that was designed to work with it. It doesn't bother me at all now and I always wear it. Thanks for sharing the study.

    How to do one handed 360's

    A lighter bike and an over inflated rear tire helps too.
