Heres a couple more clips from my ride last weekend, a few wheelies, creek crossings and single track. I got a new editing program and finally have a pc fast enough for editing but still learning this new program and it is super complicated, but Im making a little progress. Still gotta figure out why it cut out the end of the clips that had slow mo. Still LOVING the BETA! :D

Beautiful place.. I visited last year. It looks like an awesome place to ride. I wish I had a bike with me but was doing the tourist and family visiting thing with my family.

Went for a ride yesterday, loving the Beta! Here are a few parts of the ride.

Thanks for sharing your video.

I didn't realize you could ride those trails back there! I have a friend in Selma that I visit once or twice a year. I know FS25 through there very well, but usually on my Caponord. Maybe Ms.Beta should visit Oregon on my next trip!

Catfish ...

Yeah I thought the same thing until I double checked with the forest service and yep, they are class 3 trails! Very good trail system throughout briggs valley that are mainly used by hikers and mtb's, so its not real tore up. Just gotta make sure to ride there before the fire season :) If your in the area get a hold of me on here so we can go for a ride!

This is certainly not me :lol:

Our 'Junior' has a steep learning curve as he is used to medium power 4 strokes (RR 350) but this didn't stopped him from a good result.

If you watch it again, try to look ahead :ride:

Here's my very first vid I made when I just got my 09' Beta 525 RS.. The bike is stock with hand guards..

This is the first gopro so the vid isn't that great compared to what's available now.. still I was so impressed with the bike right out of the box. It was so easy to ride fast and with less effort. I'm still impressed and happy with this bike.

Here's generally the same area with hitting some tighter stuff on top. This is a year or so later so I couldn't help but put more goodies on my bike even though much wasn't needed..I was surprised how long the turn signals lasted before breaking off..probably a couple years. I have the sicass ones to put on but just never did.

Did a 100 mile dual sport ride yesterday and this is the first part of the dirt section. Ran into a few dirt bikers and tagged along to the top of the quarry.

This is the rest of the ride (parts of it) from the last video I posted, after I split off from the group it got a little nasty! Definitely the path less traveled here. Hope you enjoy!

This is why I love Oregon. I've lived here most of my life I never knew these trails existed, and they are right outside of town! This was my first day riding here and I have lots more exploring to do thats for sure!

When I visited Grants Pass in October my wife kept rolling her eyes because as we drove all I saw was potential riding everywhere. I'd go " How about that mountain that'd be cool to ride there.. " and "If we lived there that could be my personal riding area right outside my door"...and other retarded motorcycles on the mind goofiness that only other riders might relate to. ..I'm just joking around but she understands. Her Brothers are surfers and she recognizes the addictions of men. It's really looks like dirt bike heaven especially since I come from a tiny island with a very small area to ride. When I see the expanse and beauty it is appreciated...and of course I'm floored by the waaay more reasonable prices for land and homes not to mention how inexpensive food and goods are. I come home and look at $4. for a dozen eggs.

Wow its a small world! I love it here, I grew up here and moved to So Cal for about 10 years and Im happy to be back. I also have a couple family members on the big Island but only made it over there once about 10 years ago, I loved it! I guess you gotta make do with the area you have, it seems you guys do that well! Im sure if I lived there I would be riding the same trails as you, when it comes down to it its all about getting out there and twisting the throttle, and the love of 2 wheelers, even if you gotta bushwack through a bunch of tall grass, haha.

      Hey guys, 
      I am really needing some good advice here from anybody who has ever owned or rebuilt classic Yamaha 2 strokes (1989 - 1994). I live in South Africa, and bought a little farm thumper while on holiday this past weekend. It was advertised as a DT175 which is a bike that is easy to get parts for down here. It has been cosmetically customized and looks pretty darn cool... and lets face it, all the old classic Yamaha 2T engines look the same at a glance! So I genuinely thought it was a naked DT. The bike had no papers, and was used purely for the farmer to putt around on his farm.
      The only things needing attention was the stator cover which had snapped in half - this was visibly noticeable, and a little leak from a badly resealed gasket (both generally easy and cheap to fix here). The bike was still running and idling fine, started first kick, and I had a little ride around the farm before loading the bike up onto my pickup and heading off, thinking I could fix this thing up nicely in no time for next to nothing, and have what we call down in SA "a nuwe speelgoed" (A new plaything) for the weekends when I am not riding my beloved and reliable DRZ400SM. 
      SO, I get home and decide to contact our local Yamaha branch, out of interest, to find out the history of the bike before I start fiddling (Don't ask me why I did not do this all before I bought the bike - It was a spur of the moment purchase, and was sold to me for dirt cheap!). I send off the VIN and engine number. Comes back, and this little freakin' turd turns out to be a 1989 TDR180!! WHAT. But now I am stuck as we do not really have TDR's down here - and I have never even seen one myself.
      Long story short - What alternative could I use as a stator cover? Do any other old Yamaha 2T model stator covers fit the TDR or share similar engine parts? Ordering from Ebay is so expensive thanks to my country being in junk status due to a junk president. So the shipping costs more than the actual item does, and our customs is a joke too. Yamaha has also advised me that this stator cover has been discontinued.
      I have put up local ads looking for parts, contacted FB 2T groups, and local shops. Nothing for TDR's has come back yet.
      Any advice or sharing of experience is welcome!

      Hitting your landing target is critical in motocross. It is also better for your health! Not only hitting your landing, but getting there quickly is also important. The two most common techniques regarding jumping are absorbing the take off to stay low and launching the take off to clear an obstacle, to make it to the landing.

      Since the 2017 series is over I figured I'd share my experience/time racing the series... some entertainment for those who aren't riding as much anymore this time of the year.  This is my first time racing a series and pretty much racing in general.  I entered the Open B class on board my KTM 300 XC and was able to compete in 8 out of the 9 rounds held.  I do include more footage of each event at the end of some vlogs... so if you were there watching or racing, you are probably caught on camera.  Enjoy!

      Decided to pull the trigger.  I've been looking pretty hard for the last 2 years (was contemplating the 250x when I bought my Beta).  I think this is a little bit of a return to the basics of having fun on simplified machine.  Just bare bones high performance fun times.  Pretty excited!  My '03 YZ250 I had was THE most fun bike I'd ever owned.  I'm hoping I can say the same thing about this '18 X.
