  1. Speaking of.....Tim was out today on his 200, with a small group of riders.
  2. I had a ride on his old Xtrainer. I didn't mesh with that particular one. It was an older model though.
  3. This one is running a RR pipe and an adjustable shock link. Other than that, it's pretty much stock. it could use some suspension work though. Plush in most stuff, but a bit bouncy in rockier stuff. Shock not as noticeable as the forks. I already read up on what the problem is with them.
  4. Thanks. Yes, I have been riding there for almost 35 years.
  5. I wanted a lower, more cushy bike, and the magic start button for some of the more difficult singletrack trails, so I picked up a not so lightly used Beta Xtrainer. Had some fun with it, and like that my feet can reach the ground better. When the bike is too tall, my body reaches the ground first instead of my feet sometimes.😜 McCain was surprisingly uncrowded on Easter. Weather was pretty warm, so maybe that had something to do with it. As the temps go up out there, less people are enthusiastic about making that their riding destination.

  11. These rain showers we have been having lately have made the area's trails quite fun and messy to ride. The last rain at McCain valley was sort of light, but enough to get the ground soaked, without making a bunch of mud puddles for yesterday's ride. The morning started out overcast, but soon gave way to sunny skies. It was a bit chilly, all day.

    You might want to check out the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Low seat height, plus it has a low price tag. They are very hard to find right now, though because their popularity has sky rocketed since they were introduced to the U.S. market. https://www.royalenfield.com/us/en/motorcycles/himalayan/
  13. The only number plate I ever kept was the one I ran at the 1972 Elsinore Grand Prix....along with finisher pin and the program book. Other than that, there are a few trophies from various races. That's about it.

    Lower Profile Rear Tire

    The FE is sort of sensitive about its tires. The skinnier the tire, the worse the bike seems to handle, especially in sand and loose rocks. The Parker DT is a nice wide tire, and not overly tall for its width. It's also directional, and I like it better for all around terrain in the "soft" direction.
