  1. I was riding my 500 over the mountains on Friday the 7th and my dry bag fell off my rear fender. It's yellow and says Vitalire in it. I had all my tools, spare tubes, tire iron ect in side. I was taking picture almost the hole way taking my time and I ran into a couple ktm riders one girl one guy on a 200 maybe and a newer 250/300. Once I found out it was gone I turned around and I found both of my straps on the middle of the trail but no dry bag. I'm thinking it was taken, I got off my bike and looked up and down the trail and couldn't find it. If any one knows anything about it please let me know. I'm hoping it wasn't "stolen" and maybe they picked it up to take back to camp and ask around. Hoping. Thanks. -Brady.

    2003 gasgas txt 300 first bike

    3300 for an 03 is too much. I bought my 04 300 raga for 3200 and my 08 280 for 3000. I am also about 200 pounds. Ok ok 210... what ever. Anyway, like you i have been riding for 15+ years and my Girlfriend and i ride a lot. The trials bike is a fun bike to follow your significant other, don't get me wrong, you can jump off this, wheelie over that, practice your balance, hop over logs and stumps, its a fun time, and a good work out, BUT riding a trials for what trials stands for is a lot more fun. Even better if you got a buddy to ride with. But i like to hear about people getting into trials because they think its fun. Because it is. Take a look in your area and see if there are bike shops that sell Gasgas bikes and parts. If so you can get what ever you want. Like any thing sky is the limit on what you want to have and what you want to spend. I even buy trials parts from the UK. A simple online search will show you everything you want to find. So all in all Buy a trials bike and have fun, but not a 03 for 3300, maybe 2300...... Also from experance the 280 is better then a 300.

    Finally got my rack made. gonna give it a try tomorrow and see how it goes. still gotta add some thin rubber to the inside and id really like to power coat it, but got for now. used some rubber hose clamps on the bottom. even had a nut welded to it. added a spacer and it works great I've had oil spill in my last back pack so now i don't like caring oil in my pack so i made this pvc pipe bar oil holder. didn't add to much weight. thought id go for it you kind kinda see it in this picture

    I've seen those. I'm sure it would work fine but its 90$ plus 12 s/h. More fun to make my own for almost free.

    The saw isn't touching the bottle but i do see your point. I think it might be to much weight. When i make my rack i might duck tape the bottle and try it in the driveway and test it out. Hopefully i can get this made this weekend but i gotta work saturday and sunday is Super Bowl. Well see. go hawks! lol

    Thanks for the pointers guys. i know the saw and the saw rack needs to be tight and well secure. its not pictured but i also wanted to weld some tabs around the saw so its own square to sit in so when i strap it down i got a little more piece of mind know its not going to move around when I'm riding. My rack isn't perpendicular for a reason. I'm thinking why not make it a little more useable if your going to have the weight on your front end anyway. this picture is another idea i had. make little wedges for the MSR bottle to sit in and hose clamp it down. not sure if 20oz or 30oz of gas is to much weight with the saw but just an idea i had.

    Cant really relocate the black box. its bolted to my frame and one of the bolts looks like its grounded. I thought about it more last night and i think I'm going to make a tab for my pinch bolts and also maybe a U bolt on the bottom. I going to make the U bolt just long enough and weld a nut on the back side of the saw rack on the U bolt to it can only get so tight. my thinking is less stress on my fork tubes. And to keep the bottom sliding around a bolt straight down into my fender. Really want to make this rack secure. Good thing my moose hand guard ears are on or you might have seen the pink grips too!

    Alright guys i decided to mock up a card board cut out of a front fork mount for my Stihl 015 i got. I normally put it in my back pack but it is tiring, and some of the front fender mounts I've seen are pretty slick. So anyway i got a "prototype" but I'm wondering how to mount it to the front forks. I got one of those yellow moto-crossers and i got my computer/ignition thingy right in the way to mount it right against the fork tubes. Meaning it sticks out past my fork tubes and my triple clamps. I don't really want to have my saw rack rubbing on that every time i turn my handle bars. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem? (probably not my bikes a suzuki) I looked very closely at the pictures on this thread but none of them really show the mounting points. So i was hoping you guys might have a thought on that. My idea is maybe weld on a bracket that i could bolt to my top triple clamps??? But I'm not sure if thats the answer. What do you think? Heres some pictures to take a look at my little problem. This last picture is were i was thinking of welding on a tab or bracket like inch or so wide and far enough back to bolt through both of my top triple clamps. Not sure if its a bad or good idea?
