    what part is this?

    Is it about the size of a countershaft sprocket? http://www.eatmydirt.com.au/Portals/0/images/products/bnb/sprocket.jpg .

    PoPo got me last night

    That sounds like more than one fuse. What turned out to be wrong?

    Using a Torque Wrench

    Also, remember not to use a torque wrench on your oil drain bolts. Tighten them by feel, or you stand a good chance of stripping them.

    Very nice Zeke. Thanks for sharing the pics. Sure makes me jealous, sitting down here in an office in Silicon Valley.

    MX Lap Timer

    I got the DirtWerkz timers for berkeboy and me. http://www.dirtwerkz.com/Pages/traineraccessories/laptrain.htm They work mostly okay, but the button is a little hard to hit reliably.

    Infinion raceway May 16th ~ 18th Huge mx race

    Pretty cool. They haven't had a MX track there in a long time, AFAIK. Will the track be open this summer too, or just for the race?

    Yeah, it's hard for them to get used to the zero-feel aspect of real riding boots (just like us grownups, eh?). The same tricks apply for them as for us, though. Have them wear the boots around the house for a few days here and there to "break them in". They seem to like the clonking around aspect of that, and it helps them to get more used to them and to loosen them up a bit. And use the same trick on the bike that helped so many of us learn to shift better (especially standing up) -- raise the shift lever by one spline notch or so above stock. That leaves more room to get their boot under it for upshifts.

    Proud Dad

    Congrats, Dad. Dirtbiking with your kids gives us such wonderful memories. Berkeboy started around 6 y/o as well, and now he's 13 and passing me on his CRF150R. That's him wheelying his KX-65 in my avatar, a number of years ago. If you haven't seen it already, check out this thread from 3 years ago, about a very cute kid dirtbiking moment. These times with our kids are truly priceless. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=108085 .

    Ever been shocked while?

    There was a thread a while back about getting shocked because of a loose/other connection to the kill switch. Could it be something like that?

    coolest riding pants

    Moose Sahara gear is great in hot weather, both the pants and the jersey.
  12. Oh, I almost forgot Gary Semics MX school. He's the expert in the TT MX forum, and his videos have been a big help to my son and me. His schools look very good as well: http://www.gsmxs.com/
