Got both my XR50s running tops by reading carb tuning recommendations from our members. Everytime I get a new bike, it gets tuned & tweaked based upon feedback from the current owners on the site. So over the years, many, many times.

I've had many people help me on the DRZ forum with mod suggestions for performance and reliability. We are very lucky to have people like Eddie Sisneros and others on there who selflessly give a lot of time to us.

i think that is the most impressive thing in my opinion is that people give there time willingly to help you

TTers got me off my butt.

My aggressive riding days are behind me (too banged up-from sking!). I forgot 99% of what I once knew about bikes. Thanks to a bunch of smart people, I have regained 50% of my knowledge.

Sadly, I returned to collecting bikes. Every time I see on that I like, I have to get it and completely mod it, to the point I cannot afford to sell it. Then another one comes along... Ooooo....pretty...... So you guys owe me a lot of money.

TT is my go-to when working on an unfamiliar ride, search engine and a large database of previous posts is my best research tool.

Makes me look like a really know my stuff! :thumbsup:

A TT member (GOOSE 07 YZ450F) sent me a drill bit and a ball bearing to do a mod to my YZ at his expense. I did the mod and sent the bit back, good guy.

I bought my KLX 300 in March and it looked like this.

Thanks to some very affordable radiator shrouds with no cracks and factory graphics from KLXChrisE and a sweet seat cover from Varndito for about half what a new one would cost, it now looks like this!!!

Both were very cool TT members who were willing to go out of their way to help.:thumbsup:

Back in late 05 when I moved to Oregon, I knew nobody and no places to ride. Found TT and asked, got seperate invites to join Forestgrump, FlyingW, ExploringWA, and others to ride with them and learn the turf. :thumbsup:

I still blame UnkleGeorge for getting me hooked on the orange kool-aid. :thumbsup:

Oh, I forgot. I had a fellow TT'er go and look at a bike for me. I trusted his judgement, bought it sight unseen and it turned out great. He even drove the bike from Sac to LA, meeting him there from San Diego (he was going to Disney). Great TT'er. :thumbsup:

If it wasn't for Carver's timing thread in the Yamaha 2 stroke section and his taking the time offline to help me get it sorted out, my YZ250 would have a "For Sale" sign on it. Carver is the man! :thumbsup:

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
