Lunchtime ride (pics added)

Recommended Posts

I love being able to hit the trails real quick at lunch time. Leave work and within 2 minutes I'm in the woods. Nothing like a 20-30 minute ride to wake you up for the afternoon. And for this time of year it does wake you up, it's around 50-60 degrees.

Just had to post I'm all pumped up from my ride :D:)

sounds like fun, the only problem i would have with that is quiting after 30 min of riding. i would want to stay out the rest of the day.

Your right - stopping is no fun. But knowing going into it that it is going to be just a quick ride helps. Also I don't have the normal riding gear on (boots/pants/jersey) so I kind of have to stay out of the big mud holes :)

Fryboy, don't mean to rub it in :D well maybe a little bit :D

I will not feel so lucky in about 2 months when it's frozen and covered in snow :)

Nice pics BLK-RFL. I ride to work every friday...I don't get to hit any trails like you, but I do get to hammer a nice hill climb. I love to see those leaves turning in your pics 'cause that means they are headed my way (Connecticut) :) Fall is my favorite time to ride...Just have to watch out for those hidden rocks under the leaves.

Nice!!

That first one belongs in a Suzuki brochure!!

BTW If i had to venture a guess I'd say that was somewhere between concord and rochester. Maybe north of Roch, say farmington/milton area. Second guess would be southwestern part of state but i would think there would be bigger hills in that vista shot in the other thread. Am I close??

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
