You need to check out www.crazyretireddirtbikers.com to find someone who has the same schedule.

I love the description of the site, fit the description but I can't find the web site.  Are you sure this is the full name?

I guess the site had to close down due to lack of funds.  I guess crazy retired dirt bikers don't have any $$$.

 

Pete is probably still tearing it up.  I thought of all the fun he was having while I was at work.

Hit up Huntersville....

 most of the trails were overgrown and looked like they mostly hadn't been ridden since the enduro....

There was a bunch of trees down (I moved 2 off the trail but the others were just too big for me to move alone)

 still had a blast tho..... huntersville really reminds me of riding back in southern NJ (where i grew up)  maybe that's why I like it :D

 

 Gonna try and hit up PB or nemadji for a day trip next week.... (maybe monday) :D

Twin City Trail Riders are having an event Sept. 28th. Trails should be good by then.

had a GREAT ride....

  new suspension is awesome!

Pete, did you have someone in the TC area redo your forks?  I'm still trying to decide to have mine done by a pro or not.

Well..... 

  I ended up doing a RaceTech Gold kit. 

Wasn't planning on it... but it came about as a freebie. :D

 and on that note.... would i do it again if i had to pay for it? 

YES! they are extremely plush yet comfortable and Firm. 

Also the clickers make changes much more noticeable...

 now.. YMMV.... but I'm a Slow C vet HS racer/Trail rider ....

And with this setup I ran for 2 hrs (minus about 10-15 mins for map reading) and had no Arm pump and was able to pay more attention to riding than the trail obstacles...

 I felt faster.... but I'm sure it was just being able to be more fluid and less herky jerky.

Lines opened open for me cause i wasn't afraid the bars were going to get ripped out of my hands.

 Needless to say.... for now.... I'm a fan... and i think it'll help me get faster (at least i hope so :D )

I think I was assuming too much in my head.  What kind of bike & did you have to re-spring?  Thanks.

 You can't go wrong with Check Point Off-Road! Matt Stavish does awsome work.
