Me, Blue_One, and Motomanfan were there also. Our day didnt turn out as well. About 5 miles in at the hill climb area Motomanfan's 250X craps out on us and from there the rest of the day was all about getting his broken down bike back to camp. We did have a chance to poke around though, I gor in about 25 miles. I'll be going back real soon! The conditions were awsome!!

Bill and Mike checking out the bike...

Yeap the trail were awesome 😢 to bad we only rode 20 miles of them 😢 Our theme of the day was towing. Once we got motomanfan back to the truck we had to help this guy on the road out.

Good pics Bob, glad you all had a fun time. Here is some words of wisdom from comedian Ron White. So these 6 bouncers threw me out of the bar, they wanted to fight (now I'm between 6ft to 6.4 depending on what conveince store I am coming out of) now I had to back down because I don't know how many of them it would have took to kick my ass but I knew how many they were gonna use. And that is a good bit of information to have!

Hope to hook up and ride with you sometime this winter.

What was wrong with the X?

There was an assembly error and the exhaust rocker was riding right on the valves. We did a rebuild on it and flushed the metal out of the valvetrain. What we didn't know was that the pocket for the timing chain guide was cracked. It broke off during the ride got caught in the timing chain and threw the timing off. The intake valves hit the piston locking the motor.

Bike needs a left case and intake valves replaced. 😢

Wow, thats rough. I am thinkign about tearing mine down after race season is over. I jsut cant decide if I want to put in a 270 kit or jsut go with the higher compression piston. Gonna port the head and throw in a Hot Cams stage 1 though. Should give me the power I want in supermoto. 😢

Its not so much the camera ( cheap throwaways) as it is my home computer and dial up service. See to not drive me crasy.. I resize my photos. first i crop them, then I reduce the pixels by half that way the photo is 100kb , zoomed in and not a 1100kb wide far way shot. It keeps it all moving a lot faster too when I up load em.

I want to know how that guy managed to put his truck over the side?

He was pulling over to the side to let a car by, the dirt on the side of the road was wet and really soft... The truck was actually in there pretty good, real close to rolling over. The pictures dont really show it very well.

Here is another angle...

Anytime you go to CC, I recommend you e-mail ET. Go to his CC blog at: http://home.earthlink.net/~tobince/blog.htm

scroll down that blog page and you'll find his comments e-mail link. Ed is usually up there and has taken this TTer and The Blue One and now dvmpete too on some excellent trails. What's nice when ed turns off the beaten path, we allways pop out somewhere, not the case when I lead. 🤣

there is tons of stuff to run without ed, but I like his trail guide comments like this last saturday when were twisting and turning thru this one rabbit trail ( my term for a single track enduro trail only wide enough for a rabbit to go down) any way as we get to a semi wide spot in the middle of the trail. I pull over cause I was bushed and slowing up those behind me.. Ed passes me and says the pace speed thru this section is 24 mph for the quicksilver enduro. so as we finish the rest of Mr. Toads wild ride... I look at my speedometer and notice the best I was doing was 8 mph.. 😢 :cry:🤣😢🤣

PS Heckler how BIG is that picture? My poor dial up service is choking on it.
