I've officially reached my limit

Recommended Posts

After a day of watching supercross, playing MX vs. ATV Untamed (PS2) and reading MX magazines, I can't take it anymore!

I NEED TO RIDE!:applause:

It would be one thing if my bike was torn down and I couldn't go on the drop of a hat, but the bike is just sitting there ready to rock...even the tires are new!

I think I'll have to order some gear or a helmet (or both) this week...

Maybe a snowmobile would help.

This is really the first year in my area where we has enough snow to be able to ride them.

I officially reached my limit about 1 1/2 years ago. I started woods riding and ride all year long. Not only in prime conditons but also in the rain, sleet, snow, dust, and heat.

*Tip* Save that gear $$$ and use it to drive down to TN or GA. Take a buddy with you and have a weekend full of riding. This weekend we went to northern TN. It was 62* and perfect soil conditions.

This was Saturday in TN.

This was Jan. 19th in GA. The day before it was 50* and perfect riding conditions. It rarely snows in GA.

There's some of the best riding down south.

Fletchman, I totally agree. Me and my buddy drove 370 miles to Windrock in TN this weekend. We got out of the snow and it was beautiful outside down there. It was in the 40's at night and 50's during the day. We had a great time. Windrock is an AWESOME place. Nothing like riding through the mountains. If anyone ever wants to take a trip LET ME KNOW! I would be down to go!

I don't know, indoors really isn't my thing. No offense trackman, but I'm not even a big fan of Megacross, but it's so damn close!

I'll just keep doing imaginery laps in my head around Buffalo's sand track/Walnut/Byron until I can finally get out for real :applause:

suspension, tires, plastic,chain, grease the stuff, and it's "ready". its completely apart right now. :applause:

I replace all the factory stuff, putting on "my" stuff. Then when I turn it back in I put it back to "stock" and they have less to do when they sell it.

spoiled aint i.

You know when I quit for 5 years, I still remembered all the tracks (byron, BR, joliet) and would do laps in my head if I missed riding. When I finally got a new bike, it took me a day or so to get back in the game even after being on a new bike. I didn't lose much speed if any and progressed a fair amount in a short period of time. I think watching old videos of myself, watching supercorss and remembering what I did wrong back then has helped me become a better rider.

So what your saying is, you make a brand new bike look like a ragged out HS machine.......Than when you get rid of it, you make a ragged out HS machine look like a brand new bike:eek:

LOL :applause:

well i am not so sure it looks "ragged" to start the season....but once the season is over, or (2) then it looks all pretty again for resale. HEY with the exception of a few people I know, it's now how fast you LOOK, it's actually how fast you GO.

of course i will NOT say any names, but we know who we are.

:applause:
