    I love the road less traveled from back country roads to trails through the woods

    Anybody here racing the Off-Road cup at the end of March?

    The track was so brutal they called the race at 12 hours and we took 2nd in our class and 10th overall out of 58 teams. I don’t think I’ll be able to walk for a week. I guarantee my 220lb bike weighs 500lbs because of all the mud.

    Thanks for all the good info. The good thing is we each ride our own bikes. The promoter says it won’t be postponed so I hope he is the land owner too. I’m just hoping we can Finnish. Everyone in our team are mid to upper B riders and in decent shape but that can go out the window real quick in a race like this I’m sure.

    That’s about what we figured. We are planning on running 2 laps then switching. Our main goal is to have someone riding the entire time and Finnish. This is a first for everyone on the team so it will be quit interesting.

    this is my first 24 hour race. I can’t imagine doing it ironman. we are doing a 5 man team. I’m the oldest by over 10 years and 20+ over the younger on the team. It should be interesting to say the least.

  7. check out Eastern Missouri Trail Riders on Facebook. There’s always someone riding somewhere. a bunch of good guys too. well for the most part anyway. lol
  8. There is tons of great single track in MO. you just have to know where to look. then you through some headlights on the bike and it’s a whole new world.

    anybody running the gut buster 24 this weekend? It looks to be a good ol mud race.
  10. I put my Moto minded Pro on 3 years ago before a trip to UT. Just in case we ended up out later than planned. It payed off but more importantly like you I do mostly day rides and have noticed a something much more important. These things are better than any “loud pipes saves lives” want a be could ever ask for. people notice you even in the daylight with these things. one of the best safety mods I’ve done.
  11. I’m running the super bright lets 6” offroad light bar, a $2.00 amazon special led replacement bulb & the task helmet light. the 2 that hook up to the bike draw a total of 20w. the old stock light drew 35w.
  12. I now have a new favorite way to ride single track. NIGHT RIDE!!!!!! The video doesn’t do it justice. It’s cool see the other lights out in the darkness of the woods.
  13. I’ve had to put a double plug in a Mountain Hybrid to get home. It was on a 690 and I had about 30 miles of pavement. It held just fine and I finished the tire off with another couple rides with the plug still in it. I do run slime in my tires though.
  14. My kind of Friday night lights. we did a little light test run in prep for the Gut Buster 24. What a hoot. It was 17* when we left the trucks and 13* when we got back. It was in the 60s on Thursday and had rained before the bottom dropped out. all root and trees that were done had ice on them and the ground was pretty slick too.
  15. That’s what I thought. The light bar I have is 80w. After about 2 hours of riding when I cracked the throttle it died. As soon as I unplugged the light everything ran fine the rest of the night.
