  1. I am not intending to offend anyone, I hope I don't, and I'm sure many will disagree with me. Since I have joined this website there seems to have been a recurring theme of placing more and more restrictions on non-paying members and now the price increase to become a paying member. I appreciate all the work that you all do to make this website happen and I have met a few great guys and been on a few great rides with the help of this website. I have never paid to become a member and I have never paid to participate in the desert dash. I know the hardcore members will probably dismiss anything I have to say because of that, however I felt my candid opinion for why I have not contributed would possibly help to understand why many people do not contribute and why the desert dash numbers have dwindled. The primary reason that I joined this website was to find new riding buddies and new riding areas, honestly there is not a lot of activity here when it comes to upcoming rides, especially for the lesser experienced riders. The reason that I have never done the desert dash is because I can fairly easily go ride all those areas for free any time. I know lots of people would love to ride in Baja but are scared for one reason or another or they just don't know where to start, if there was a semi-supported ride down south I would be much more inclined to pay for that.
  2. No problem! Good ride today thanks to everyone that made it out 👍

    Tuning 15 exc

    Just to follow up...I finally received all the parts necessary and was able to complete the de-smog and TPS tune. So far it is running like a champ, no stalling and no popping on decel. I still need to do more testing and I may still do the ECU tune in the future but for now I am comfortable that it's not running dangerously lean. I also just swapped out the springs front/rear with a set from slavens that is appropriate for my weight. Now it's time to put some miles on her and get used to the new bike.
