I almost got a branch enema yesterday!

I was out riding here in So-Cal yesterday in the rain with a fellow TT'er and got into a interesting situation. :lol: We were climbing this slick, muddy, rutted, water running, rocky hill and I "thought" I was good enough to make it up. :cry: I had just helped a fellow TT'er get his bike up this path (after about 15 minutes of struggling and a nice pipe burn to my forearm) and now it was my turn. Started up and the bike got kicked to the left (which was about a 8 foot or so drop off to rocks, luckyfully the bike stayed on top) so I bailed off to the right. Well couldn't get my feet under me so my a*s went down first. Just happened to be the broken off remains of a branchy bush there and I missed a very nasty, intruding 1 1/2 inch wide, 3-4 inch long, anal wooden enema by about 2 inches. :cry: I am SOOOOOOO lucky. :lol: I have about a 5 inch by 5 inch multi colored bruise on my a*s right now and it hurts like all he*l to sit in my chair right but I am so happy. :cry: Could have been MUCH MUCH worse. Someone was looking out for me! :cry: :cry:

Any other close calls by you fellow TT-ers?

The guy that runs one of the yamaha shops here, told me about when he skewered himself with a branch in his nose.

sure makes you think, before you pin it. :cry:

Hmmm... when i was 14 yrs old, riding my 80' XL500, i went off a small jump the wrong way, pretty much laid the bike down flat on landing, and the clutch lever broke through my leather boot, and and scraped the top of my foot. When i did it i was too scared to take my boot off for a few minutes because it felt like the lever had impaled my foot, but luckily it only scraped the top, didn't break the skin, but left a scar :cry:

The clutch lever had the tip snapped off, that's why it was sharp enough to pierce the old leather.

On the same bike, i once als came off a jump, into a ditch to complete stop, and left a ding in the steel tank just above the seat from landing in the wrong way.... painful...

That sounds worse than a Fusilli Jerry! :cry:

It would have been bad to get it in the A$$, but just think how close it was to the family jewels!!!. :cry:

That was a funny episode. :cry: Branchsilli Josh is no bueno :cry: :cry:

Winter of 1977 I was riding my then brand new Yamah DT125 enduro bike at night, in the snow, on the frozen golf course with some friends. Alcohol was a major contributing factor. We were flying around the place like it was our very own riding park. I still can't believe we didn't get caught or chased.

At some point the throttle stuck WIDE OPEN while in 3rd gear. I was too scared, stupid, stoned or drunk to know what to do and just hung on for dear life. I thought I was going to make it when I saw the creek in front of me. Didn't have enough time to react so I just hung on super hard. The bike slammed into the creek, stopped dead. I compressed into the bike and stopped dead with it.

Every single fiber in my whole body hurt. I got the wind knocked out of me and it took me a while to catch my breath. When we finally got back to my friends house and looked at the bike the front wheel was bent so far back from the fork tubes bendin, it was hitting the pipe. In the rear center portion of the gas tank there was a big round dent where my crotch hit it.

My balls hurt for a month. :cry: :cry: :cry:

yep, been there done that. :cry:

That was a funny episode. :cry: Branchsilli Josh is no bueno :cry: :cry:

Yeh. Mine is an "OUT DOOR" only. :cry:

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Star battles Through All-New Format Hell’s Gate to Finish Second
      February 11, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has earned a strong second place at the 2018 Hell’s Gate extreme enduro. With an all-new format for this year, concluding in a 20-minute sprint race, the event posed a fresh challenge for the five-time winner.
      For the first time ever, the event kicked off with a Prologue race on the Friday night. Designed to set the starting order for Saturday’s race, the Prologue was an endurocross style event held close to the hosting Il Ciocco Hotel. Although it provided a great spectacle for the fans, the race results were eventually scrapped due to issues with the course.
      Saturday’s heat race went well for Jarvis. An expert at managing his pace, the Brit did exactly what he had to do over the five-laps, finishing fourth aboard his Husqvarna FE 250 in the cold conditions of the Tuscan hills. The position gave him a good start for the night race, which saw riders set off at 3.30pm for a tough three-hour multi-lap event.
      At the conclusion of the night race, the top-10 riders were given a 15-minute break before contesting the new 20-minute endurocross in the arena area of the venue. In freezing conditions, the riders fought bar-to-bar in front of the record-crowd of spectators to decide the overall winner. With the final results calculated on the sum of the previous legs, Jarvis was announced as runner-up, just a few minutes behind eventual winner Mario Roman.
      Graham Jarvis: “I really enjoyed the racing today, I always do here at Hell’s Gate. It’s been a tough couple of days and I’m still getting used to riding the 4-stroke, but the bike has been absolutely faultless over the entire weekend. It has been pretty close between the top-four all day and it’s all come down to the final 20-minute race off. It would have been nice to take my sixth win at the event, but I’m happy with second.”

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.

      I want to get a cheaper used FMF exhaust for my bike. The one on eBay I was looking at had some dents in it. Do dents in the muffler have a big impact on the performance? Also the pipe looks to be turned the wrong way does that rotate? I don't want to buy this if the pipe will not rotate because I think it looks like its turned the wrong way and wouldn't fit.
