  1. What's a good reliable company that's not too expensive for helmet bluetooths for your iphone? Thanks for the help!!
  2. I always buy the previous year's gear. If you're in the Columbus, OH area Iron Pony Motorsports sells last season's jerseys for $12 and pants for $25. I can't believe what companies charge for the latest pants and jerseys. The crazy color schemes make me have seizures on the trails and crash!!
  3. Thanks for all your input. I feel like I can trust the shop!
  4. I had a new rear tire put on my rim at a shop. When I got it they said that they put it on backward but it won't make a difference in performance. There is an arrow on the side of the tire that's pointing the wrong way. Is it a directional tire? I'm a novice at dirt biking so I took their word. Have I been suckered that they didn't feel like taking the tire off and correcting their mistake or will it actually work fine as is? It's an intermediate tire. Thanks for your help for someone who needs it!! Paul
  5. Hello Riders, Wayne State Forest in Ohio is cracking down on drinking and safety gear due to fatalities stemming from last riding season. They're checking for helmets, eye protection, and setting up sobriety check points on random parts of the trails. Hopefully you're already following these rules, but if you're not you'll eventually get nailed. They'll impound your ride for drinking and a DUI goes on your driver's license!! Ride Safe!

Hopefully you're already protected and aren't drinking and driving like a fool would. If you have friends breaking these rules tell them they will get nailed sooner or later at Wayne Forest.
  7. Thanks for the help when I need it TT!
  8. Hi Everyone, Has anybody found a decent quality helmet camera for under 100.00? Thanks for your help! Paul
  9. I loosen the screws enough that if a rock comes from underneath the whole clutch or brake unit will just be rotated up and I just push it back down into position around the handlebar.
  10. Thanks guys. I'll dispose of it and start fresh for the season!!
  11. I have a chipped bone in my left elbow and torn tendons and a torn ligament in my right knee. I learned the hard way. Anybody who rides hard knows that protection is a lot less that hospital bills!!
  12. Your 125 is fine. I love 2 strokes! The smell of the exhaust and the high pitch whine of the engine aren't around the trails enough nowadays. I find throat punches work well for the nonbelievers!
  13. Hi Everyone, I'm brand new to the bike game. I was just given a 5 gallon gas can with about 3 gallons of gas in it that's been sitting around since last summer. Is there a addative to revive old gas and make it good again or should I just dispose of it and get new gas? Thanks for your help, Paul
  14. I made a fork brace so I don't compress my front forks when I travel long distances. I measured the height from the front tire to the front fender when the bike was on a stand. Question is, should I have measured the height when the bike was sitting on the ground and had some compression pushing down naturally on the forks? If I use the brace will the upward force of it blow my seals. Should I cut the brace down an inch or so? Thanks for your help!!
  15. I wear them over because it's more comfortable. If anybody on a trail is judging your attire they don't have a life.
