1972 XL250 Restoration
I've had my XL since new and last rode it in 1995....doesn't seem that long but sadly it has been. I'm not an experienced mechanic but have some basic knowledge and used to do my own maintenance such as an XL250 required if anything. It's been sitting covered up in the garage way too long and I'm pulling it apart and trying to replace and repair what I can. I know I'll need help and advice so hopefully some of you guys will be available to guide me through the process. Current deta
How old to hit the trails?
Apologies in advance, I might get wordy... The bottom line question: how old is reasonable to take my son to a public location to ride trails? There's a lot of how old to ride a dirtbike posts, but I'm really wondering about riding at off road parks and such. My number one concern is safety for my kid, a 500lbs man+bike combo could put a hurtin on a kid at one of these places. Can a 50cc handle an easy trail, those little tires must make it tough. Are we going to be pissing
I’m thinking about getting a rekluse for hare scrambles and enduro racing/riding on a 350F im looking for pros and cons of them. I have a 300 also and have never considered a rekluse but I don’t want to run the risk of flameouts with the 350. what are the main differences between the different models? I want to be able to use my clutch like normal and shift down to a lower gear to pop the front end up. Is this still possible with a rekluse?

Which bike should I get?
I’m a 16 year old that has never ridden. Trying to narrow down my options on which bike to get. I will be doing 80% on road and 20% off road riding. I was looking into the DRZ400sm but I really want a gas gauge or low fuel indicator. I would like a range of at least 140km per tank and to be able to go on the highway (90km/h) for 30mins at a time.

I moved to Rock Springs, WY about 3 years ago and I've been riding in the Green River/Rock Springs area, but find the terrain here to be rather boring. I like single track terrain in forests, and I suppose other areas of Wyoming may offer more interesting riding, but I'm not really familiar with this region. I grew up in Ohio and I've ridden some great terrain in the southeast as well. Just looking for suggestions from those that might know the off-road riding in this region. I ride a Kawasaki K

caltrop ads? Sure don't want them
A couple of weeks ago, someone posted a photo of a home made caltrop-type device, and asked what it was. They are, of course, the evil devices spread to deliberately puncture tires to stop movements. I think their use goes back to Roman warriors. So a couple of the usual folks pointed out that they are designed to destroy tires, and maybe crash the bike, stay away, etc. As part of it, I did a general Google search for them, so I could get the spelling right, etc. Ever since, I get ads on
There have been a couple of times where I was involved in a thread when the thread disappeared. When I click on notifications, because someone had responded to one of my posts, I get a message that says, “You do not have permission to view this content”. I’m a bit confused. What does this mean?
