Hey I was wondering if anyone new why my bike won't start, every 5 to 10 kicks it will backfire and that's all it will do. the other night I roll started it and it started but ran terribly. Got it from a guy saying it was in a building for 8 months. took the carb of cleaned the jets out and put it back on, now when I kick it it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't. also there's no more backfiring.
There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it.
I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC?
Does any body know of any spots to ride in southeast michigan? I usually ride trails up north in the kalkaska area, but i want to find a spot where i can get on the bike for an afternoon without traveling all that way.
I live around metro detroit, any places within an hour would be great.

With the exception of the Alamo area all riding areas can be reached generally within an hours travel time depending what side of town you’re coming from.
You've heard my top ten...let's hear yours. Post them here.
This list was compiled in no particular order just depends on what terrain you want to ride and all areas have both single and double track (for you quad guys).
Some areas have BLM, Lake Mead Recreation Area, Private Land and other out of bound areas so beaware of where your at when riding.
And it wasn't nearly as bad as I've heard. I actually liked it a lot better than Carnegie because I enjoy trails better than climbing hills all day, although Frank Raines has some pretty knarly hills if you're into that. By 6:00 me and my buddies were literally the only people in the park, I had a blast.
