  1. I have an '09, switched the plastics to '08 black because '09 was only available in blue and red for some reason...hard wired in a TomTom GPS, installed a phenomenal Drummer SS Can with the matched Erik Buell Racing ECM, and opened the intake. I also switched the engine and primary to synthetic. The bike is awesome...pulls the front wheel in every gear if I let it. The Drummer is a must. It's not stupid loud or obnoxious, but it has a nice authoritative, deep bark that gets you noticed in a good way, and really wakes up an already nice torque curve. If you're a dirt rider looking for a street ride (which is what I am), this bike is perfect. I can ride trails on my CRF450R in the morning, then come home and ride this at night without any feeling of transition, because of the seating position. You can actually stand up and stretch while riding it... It's also pretty comfy for a passenger - my wife loves to hop on the back. And when you want to feel saucy, you can snap off the hard bags and drag pegs in tight twisties. Overall, it's a really nice machine...no complaints except the toasty inside of your right thigh when it's hot, but the synthetic oil, chip and exhaust seem to have helped that a bit somehow.

    Thanks for the update Dale. Good luck with the new biz...I checked out the site; that's some cool stuff! If there's any riding areas developing in North Jersey that I can help out with, let me know. Regards, Darren

    Hey Dale, if you're around, do you have any plans for a 2011 season? We're really struggling to find places to ride, and we miss the series; it was a blast. Pig Pen Racing

    Thanks for the answers guys. Where can I find info for NEOC? Dale, best of luck getting the parks open. Post on here whatever info you have and in what ways people can help make it happen. The faster this gets done, the faster we can get back to AGP!

    Is this a completely dead series? Is there any hope for a season this year? Dale, I assume you are the one to be asking this...sorry if there's been talk or answers to this question, I've been out of action for the past few months due to crazy work hours and an injury. My kids and I had a great time at this series, it was sorely missed last year, especially since it's getting harder and harder to find places to ride. I know alot of time was spent on the Little Egg Harbor situation, I was even at the Town Hall one day talking about it - what a shame, the lack of cooperation and shortsightedness on the opponents to this sport in general. I obviously don't know the details, and I'm sure it's complicated, but is there a way to just kick the series off again with the landowners and locations that seemed to be fully cooperative with the races?
  6. Hi Dale, Did you mean to say 2009, or 2010? Are you saying that there will be no AGP races next year also? PigPen Racing

  9. Hi Dale, Any info on the Banquet? Thanks, Pig Pen Racing
  10. Grrrr.... My kid's is one of them
  11. Hi Dale, We had a great time at Sahara Sands - we should be there for this one also. Do you know when the standings wil be updated on the AGP website? Pig Pen Racing
  12. I've been running a K&N on my '04 for about 3 years now. My valves started to go BEFORE I put the K&N in, I put a SS valve & spring kit in from RHC, put the K&N in & my valves have stayed spot on - The bike starts first kick, even in cold weather. I ride trails & race AGP harescrambles in NJ & Eastern Pa. - If it's not muddy, it's very dusty, silty conditions. I clean the filter after every ride, & when I check the intake with a clean paper towel its spotless, even when the filter is caked with crud after a particularly dirty ride. I also change my oil about every 2-3 hrs - maybe too much, but when I take things apart they still look new. I think if the filter is PROPERLY cleaned, sealed, oiled & maintained, you won't have any issues. For the record,I also ran K&N filters in a Pro Stock NMRO mud drag truck, & all my on-road vehicles. I even have one in my '08 Duramax Silverado, but if you listen to others they'll tell you it screws up the MAS sensor in the intake. It probably does if you over-oil it, which will allow the excess oil to get sucked into the intake as a mist. Bottom line - if you have experience with the K&N & you know how to take care of them, you won't have any problems, & you'll benefit from increased airflow. By the way, I don't work for K&N, nor am I sponsored by them; I've just used them in various applications & have never been let down by them. Hope this helps..
  13. Dale, Any word on how the town handled this race? It was really dusty - I hope there were no complaints. We want to go to the next one there. When are the results going to be posted?
  14. HaHaHa... Thats because those quad guys aren't a tough as us bikers. J/K.... We were at the last race - we'll be there tomorrow. Was there enough rain to keep the soil damp? The dust was a killer:cry: See you there, Dale Pig Pen Racing
  15. This was a couple years ago - there's more goodies now, I need to take a few new pics.
