The hell is Mookie?
I haven't kept up with things. He's injured? Who is he riding for next year? Seems like I haven't seen anyone talking about him in a while - so what's the latest w/ him?  
Tennessee Knockout
Just wanted to start a discussion on this race. It was knarly as usual. At least it wasn't wet. I saw Webb spectating. It was hot as hell in the sun, but not to.bad in the woods. It was a blast to watch these guys hang it out over the super rough terrain.
Lake Isabel
Headed down around Lake Isabel this weekend for the first time. I hear St. Charles trail is pretty good. Any others down there I should hit (or be aware of)?

High bar vs. Low bar Squat for riding?
So to start. I know the differences between the two! My question is, for those of who you are serious about weight training too to supplement riding, do you prefer high bar or low bar squatting for MX/Woods/whichever riding you do? I do squat 2x a week, but I am more of a lower bar squat type right now. It just feels more natural to me and if I get DOMS it is generally more my hamstrings being a little tender for a day or so. If it would be super beneficial to switch to or just include high bar or even front squats, I could try to work it in. Would probably grab a trainer for 1 session to form check me as I never do those. I don't care if I had to drop weight, not there for my ego or doing anything super impressive anyhow. Could also mix goblets in if those would work with a heavy dumbbell. I feel like my workout energy (even with a low cal diet right now) has been getting better and better. So I could probably even do the goblets after my normal squatting.  Thanks        
Broken Femur
My younger cousin whom I ride with had a bad crash and broke both his femurs this past weekend. Surgery went well he has a long road ahead to recover but he’ll be ok considering the situation. He’s already thinking about being able to ride again. I love riding. I got him into it. But I’m not so sure it’s a good idea for him to get back on a bike. Has anyone here suffered an injury like this and bounced back? Or know if someone who did?
Lefty anyone?
I was wondering if any of the mountain bikers here have or have had Cannondale lefty suspension? The newer designs seem to be really good and well praised. I've always wanted one. I might splurge on a new mountain bike instead of a dirt bike. Ye old RM250 is just too fun. Thought I'd shoot the breeze about it.

Suzuki quadrunner lt 160 help please
Hey guys I just bought (not sure of year suzuki quadrunner lt 160) and I picked it up for 500 cash brought it home put 93 gas in it and it wouldnt start. Most likely bc the previous owner ran it completley out of gas even reserve was empty. But I finally got it to start rode it around and it runs rugged, doesnt idle good but will and still cuts off if u let it sit for a minute. So I got seafome and a brand new ngk plug put it in and it will not start. Can amyone please help me step by step on how to give this thing a tune up? I really do not want to lay a finger on the carb im scared of those things. And doea anyone know if I can change the wheels and tiresto something beefier? I would like to even the stance put smaller but wider back tire on and taller front tire on but have no clue what size to get. And I wanted yo get a new front body bc its cracked but geeeeez 200 bucks juat for.the front? Is there another way around this? Thanks please help sincerely mike.
Z400 crank but no start (Solved)
It ran fine but stalled out on me last time I took it out. Had a crank no start condition on a 03 ltz400. Got a shim kit for the valves because they were on edge of being out of spec and also cleaned the carb. Spark was also confirmed, still no start. Decided to tear it down, rings were fully compressed inside the Piston so I wasn't getting much compression.   *Before I tore it down a would only get an occasional back fire out of the exhaust when I sprayed starter fluid into the carb trying to start it*   Cylinder looks fine still has a lot of cross hatching.
