Evansville HS 7-15-07

Ok guys, i'm a virgin, what should i expect from Evansville?

How much of the MX track is included in the HS?

How beat up is the course and will it kill an old man?

I will be there Sunday riding B Senior ( only 'cause there is no C)

Are the young guns going to run with us old timers or are the classes run seperate?

Only some of the MX track is used, none of the big jumps, lots of grass track and off camber stuff, some woods, they use every bit of the property for the HS race. A few nice hills. Senior B, you will be on line with other senior B riders, those are the guys you will be up against. All A classes start in front of you and C classes start behind you. So yeah, in a way, the young guns are out there too but you need not worry about them or if they pass you, you just don't want to get passed by someone in your class/group. You usually get a colored sticker for the back of your helmet, so you know who is who out there. As far as getting killed or beat up, depends on how in shape you are or your real skill level and/or they type of riding you do for practice.

well,, i survived! dind't finish, but didn't die. Hell, i didn't finish a lap. Almost did, but figured i should quit before the old man has a coronary. I think i need just a tad of cardio training. I got on my back on an off camber with the bike on top of me and my head facing downhill. All i could do is wait for 2 nice guys to pull it off of me. They asked if i was ok and i said just a little rusty, thats when the one guy said i figured so by looking at the grey hair. Oh, did i tell you i was on my back a few?long enough to get the helmet off and shut off the fuel which was running up my leg which was pinned between the bike and a log. So i think i'll loose some weight, try to fun a bit and see what the fall brings. Maybe i will finish a lap or 2! It was a blast though.

Sorry to hear you had to take a soil sample the hard way. Glad to hear your in one piece and your pride is still intact. We all learn lessons every time we ride. This is the best exercise you can get and a great stress reliever. I'm sure you will do better next time. It's awesome when you think back during the week on what is was you did on Sunday. DUDE! YOU RACED IN A REAL RACE!

      Howdy! I'm looking for early season riding within driving distance. Ontario is still 4-6 weeks from riding and I'm itching....
      Advanced single trail rider, open to medium+ difficulty 4x4 / ATV trails, doesn't have to be single trail only.
      I'm an hour from the border, Ottawa, and good to drive 7-8 hours max to get a day or 2 of riding done...as far as Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, up the coast to Maine
      I've found the following locations so far that might fit the bill:
      https://readingoutdoors.com RAC/FRO - 175$ yearly pass only - daily pass coming in May
      http://www.aoaatrails.com AOAA - similar to RAC/FRO - good option!
      Any on this list you would remove?
      Did I miss any?
      Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

      Has anyone around New Jersey heard of Lepis Land? I found people talking on other forums about it and how riding there is by donation only. Does anyone have anymore information about it or a phone number to contact them?

      10/17/08 UPDATE! I posted more photos on page 2. Not all pictures are on page 1. I will constantly be adding more photos as I go along.
      Many of you have heard of my starting/idle problems with the 610. Carburetion has been ruled-out time and time again. I sensed something else was going on. The engine has never wanted to idle down, sounded like there was a load on it even in neutral. Since I had metal filings in my oil when I first got it, I have now decided to overhaul it and make everything ship-shape. It turns out that I was correct- there is some valve damage that I will talk about later.
      I don't like to take apart dirty engines and get the dirt inside 'em

      A little gross.

      My cleaning station:

      A little better now

      Clutch removal:

      after removing springs

      bottom of pressure plate

      everything looked decent as far as wear

      after removing plates

      basket after removing hub

      Area after removing basket.

      Removing the starter gear with snap ring pliers

      More to come. I'm uploading pictures of the case splitting, etc...
      I'll try to ease off on the photo-over-obsession. The next batch of info/photos will be a little more interesting.
      Comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm already ordering parts from George so before I know it, I'll be just waiting on new parts (after a little more cleaning.
