    Can Dakar racers ride hard enduro...These ones can!

    By scottiedawg

    Follow along for a great three day ride! I often receive the privilege to ride with people from all the corners of the globe. While living in Peru, one thing I notice is that very few Peruvians have ever ridden in the areas around Cusco where I live and ride. So when I get a chance to show some locals(Peruvians) some of the secrets of their country, I try to do it well.   This is what its like to ride in the Andes of Peru...Check it out!

    Alpacas in the Crosswalk

    By scottiedawg

    Guiding groups of dirtbikers through the Andes of Peru is surreal. First of all, it is a huge privilege to be able to do what I do. I love riding dirtbikes as much as anybody possibly can. Combine that with serving others by leading groups on various trails, providing communication support such as translating a menu, or taking a picture or video to help recall the memory at a later date, these are the things that I do. There are many other tasks as well, but to simplify things, my job isn't much

    Three Easy Ways to Improve Engine Cooling

    By Paul Olesen

    This month I want to discuss three easy ways to improve engine cooling for your dirt bike or ATV and explain why they are effective. As improvements are made to an engine that increase its power, the amount of heat the engine will create will also increase. Effectively removing heat from the engine and cooling it is very important as the power output of the engine goes up. The cooler an engine runs, the more power it can produce. There are three ways that the aftermarket attempts to improv

    Four Stroke Cylinder Head Reconditioning

    By Paul Olesen

    It's time to open up a can of worms and talk about a hotly debated topic in the powersport community - four stroke cylinder head reconditioning best practices. I've perused the forums and had discussions with people about reconditioning four stroke cylinder heads and there appears to be a lot of mixed opinion and beliefs on what is right or wrong. I'm certainly not going to say my take on the subject is the only way, but I do want to share my opinion, explain the technical details, as well as to

    Maintenance Readiness

    By Paul Olesen

    I hope you all have been out riding and enjoying spring. I got back into the hare scramble racing scene over the weekend after a three year hiatus and had a blast. Today, I just want to share a quick tip and start a discussion on preparatory things that help shorten the time it takes to do complex maintenance tasks, such as rebuilding an engine. Quick Tip Prior to turning a wrench carefully look over the service manual scanning through all the applicable procedures and subsystems. If I’m work

Stronger Lower Back = Less Sitting

The human body is incredibly smart and when it becomes tired, it will take the path of least resistance.  Even though we know that standing is the ideal way (the majority of the time) to control a motorcycle and is the most efficient way to ride, when the body becomes tired (especially your lower back), you will find yourself sitting more (resulting in slower riding and more work to control).  Here is a simple exercise you can implement throughout the day - strive for 10-15 reps at the top of ev

Core Exercise #1 For Better Bike Stability - Hip Risers

The word "core muscles" have been over-used and taken out of context.  Core muscles (specific to riding and racing) include the muscles from your chest to your pubic bone - the sides of your abdomen and your lower back muscles into your butt muscles (glutes).  This exercise will isolate the muscles on the side of your abdomen.   Strive to complete 10 reps per side - with controlled movement | 2 Sets - no rest in between sides (10 reps right side - 10 reps left side - Repeat) If you h

Podcast #42 – 20 Steps to Eliminate Weaknesses

Was Psychologist Abraham Maslow wrong when he created his Hierarchy of Needs?  When you look at the human race and our desire to reach our fullest potential (financially, professionally, personally and athletically) we have the flow pattern completely upside down – Maslow was correct! When working with individuals around the world, there is one constant word that comes up when desirable goals don’t become a reality – weak.  Comments like I wasn’t “tough” enough and I “quit” – most interpre

Project Bike Update: Crankcase Repair Tips

If you’ve ever experienced a ride or race where your crankcases got damaged in some way, whether from a rock or engine failure you know just how painful dealing with the aftermath of damaged crankcases can be.

The Fundamentals of Dirt Bike Handling

The Fundamentals of Dirt Bike Handling

Have you ever ridden a buddy’s bike and walked away wishing that you didn’t have to get off because everything just clicked as you were riding it? On their bike, you could rail every corner, absorb every bump effortlessly, and feel completely stable at high speeds. Once you got back on your bike it feels slow, riding over rough terrain wears you out, and taking corners is best described as unpredictable. To make matters worse, you and your buddy could have the exact same bike! What could possibl
