    Oh yeah........got my new job Started yesterday....AND worked today Driving a tri-axle dump, until an end-dump tractor-trailer opens up. I hauled 200,000 lbs of commercial base gravel yesterday, and 120,000 lbs today. It's pretty easy when you get 20 tons(40k) per load Did about 300 miles yesterday and 180 today. Gotta' be at work at 5:00am in the morning

    Man.....sign me up Check this out. Wait a few minutes.......until the two-strokes hit the hill. I absolutely LOVE at 7:50........Watch the Suzuki on the left, against a mean sounding 4stk. can't even hear the RM....while he smokes him. Then the block/punishment at the end.... How much is an extended swinger....... Seriously though......looks like a freakin' blast Starts with some stock/sportsman class, but I like the hill that the extended SA bikes are hitting.....

    what tire to get?

    I just want to add that I'm basing that on being born and raised in Ohio(similar dirt/terrain). Oddly enough.........got the same recommendation from local riders when I moved to Louisiana

    what tire to get?

    I would suggest the Michelin StarCross MS3 For a mixture of track and trail. Michelin M12 front/S12 rear for predominantly trail.

    I think your advice is good too I could certainly tell when Zachary was ready. He hadn't outgrown the 90, size-wise, but was was wanting to jump and go fast. The suspension was a joke on that thing. The RM80 was an economical step up. He was tip-toeing on it at first, and could only get one foot down flat. I know David was on the KTM 50 when we rode together. Now he's had experience shifting the 110. I know Rob likes to hit Wayne a lot too........sticker. Nowadays.....you just gotta' have a title. Someone probably didn't pay the taxes on it, so never got a clear title. I believe you can get stuck with that, if you pursue getting a clear title. Or the vehicle could be in default on a loan......

    I agree, in part, with what you're saying. Moving from a clutchless quad to a bike is a huge step. Bikes inherently require much more rider input, then add the clutch on top of that Rob's son, like mine, is no stranger to bikes. David has probably got a lot more seat time than Zack did when he moved up. I've seen him ride......the boy's got skills I'm sure he's improved greatly since we rode together last. Personally......I think he would take right to it. Zack was a little older when he made the move......but had zero experience with a clutch. I worked with him in the yard for an hour or so, on taking off, stopping, etc.... We went riding that day There were a few stalls, but he took right to it. I probably over-thought it.......kids are so amazing........they learn so quick. Good luck with whatever decision you make Rob..........either way, as long as he's riding, it's a win-win situation Here's some of Zachary, about 2-3 weeks after switching........ http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=13176170 Congrats on the new ride.........pics!!!

    That's a tough one Rob. There is certainly plenty of parts out there to hop-up the 110. On the other hand, those 65's are bad-azz. My neighbor had his boy on one, and it was a mean little machine. The 65 is a race machine, including a clutch........something to consider. I worried when I moved Zachary to a clutched bike, but he took right to it. I think it's good to get them accustomed to normal bike controls as soon as possible, just don't want to overwhelm him. I think he would take right to it, but only you, and him, know what he's ready for. Good luck with your decision..........

    Looking for a place to ride this weekend?

    We're planning on it. My son, Zack, and I have been looking forward to it. I'll be in Senior 40+ , and he'll be riding Vet kid. Look for us on these........

    Yeah......I agree. If you can't pump them up at all, even after bleeding, likely going to be a cup seal. The routing of some brake lines make it hard to get all the air, but it should still pump up if it's just air. Have a great trip Chris
