    SENIOR DIRT RIDERS BLAB!

    Here is a set of bars that help with the stiff feeling after installing the wrap around bark busters. https://www.protaper.com/product/38/fuzion-handlebars

    @ASP1227 Saw this on another thread, and knew that you would appreciate it. Man these guys got BALLS! PS... Sorry about the rocks... I will tell cousin big foot to leave you guys alone. He was probably nervous about you maybe having a side by side... By the way, finally saw one of those Mahindra Jeeps that @cjjeepercreeper was talking about. Looks like a ton of fun, and they are already getting ready to come out with a street legal version. And if your rich, they have tons of mods for them also.

    That is a great time for Moab. Just be careful not to be there during Jeep Safari week. It is usually about Easter Week. I think I saw April 13-21 for next year.

    Just past Vail, you will be passing the 131 Steamboat Springs exit. Come on up for a visit. Some better than average riding around here...

    I actually offered $500, and he came back with $700. In Facebook, where he first posted this bike. He mentioned that the crank seal is leaking. So it needs a bottom end. He had it posted up over there for $800, so I didn't feel bad about the $500 offer.

    Not sure how many will get the Swag, but I doubt it will trickle down as far as my status...

    @ASP1227 here is what the #1 poster on Thumpertalk got for Swag. Stankdog is a fenom on 250 2 strokes. https://motocross.transworld.net/news/gared-steinke-two-stroke-love/

    The only thing about the big bore 500's is they boil a little too easy when the trails get tight. That is the main advantage of the modern 300's. Power at the bottom and mid, with some over rev.

    Like that! First time I have seen that video. That makes it much easier.

    Just some suggestions for Gen 5...Use a different grip for the lever. With greasy or dirty hands, my grip tape stuff has seen better days. Maybe a system that actually uses a dirt bike handlebar type of grip that can be glued and safety wired to secure it. Then cut off and replaced with customers favorite flavor after gummed up with goop. Also, how did you guys fix the tire lever situation? I picked up one of the first Gen 4's and the lever sleeve is almost more annoying than useful in its current condition. A final suggestion would be the bag. Maybe Velcro pockets for irons, and the axle pieces ( I have both sizes so would be nice to have a spot for each of them, and remember these get greasy). And maybe a few extra pockets for odds and ends. I keep a small box with patches, valve cores, valve core removers and spare tube valve caps. Directions on assembly are everywhere on these things, but disassembly and putting away in the bag are no where, and it takes a few tries to make it work. I have a system now that works, but would be nice to have a system in place for first timers.

    It's pricy for sure, and not going to make up for bad techniques. But if you can use lube (not supposed to with tubeless, or at least not regular tire lube, slime is an ok substitute) it makes the job quick. Even better if you don't have to take it down and put it back together every time. Not that it takes much... But very nice if you have a dedicated station. With tire lube, you can almost use that long arm part and not need the irons to get a tire on. And taking a tire off, well let's just say, once you have done it a few times, it gets to be a very fast process. Tires, even those 6 ply Kenda's are much easier with the right tools. I do wish Jeff would have made that video he promised almost a year ago about all the how too's with this thing though.

    The tire spoon tray is convenient, sometimes... There is teeth in the tire lever on the Rabaconda. The feet on the Rabaconda is supposed to be nicer. @Jeff aka Bolt can also get you closer in prices. He might also know of a few extra differences. I don't own the Moose brand, but did a lot of research before I bought.
