    Enduro/Hair scramble race in Colorado Springs area

    Corcs is the place to go. They ,for the most part, have events around the springs area
  2. I have been driving class a otr for a year nor and have decided to look for local work. Anybody know of a decent company looking for a driver. Not too concerned with location, just looking to get back to Colorado

    Was feeling iffy about purchase

    Hell, I would relocate out of Colorado in a heartbeat . The riding is amazing and the place is breathtakingly beautiful but it comes with a steep price tag Before I went otr, all I did was work my ass off just to live in a place I never got much time to enjoy

    That sounds pretty decent. My year has been pulling flatbed and not much hiring in my area and trying to get on in a different state is proving difficult. However, something will come up. Only gaining more experience as I search

    Wouldn't say I am all in,had the goal to pay cash for the Beta. I am running too hard to see a thing. Will be looking local soon. I am lease operator so hometime is pretty expensive

    Thanks for the advice. I have not been home since mid June with hometime scheduled the last week of October when the Beta supposed to arrive. I am new to otr so getting processes down and learning the ropes have been my main goal this first year.
  7. Here's the deal, I own an 09 Beta 450rr, great bike. I currently drive semi otr so the chances to ride are few and far between. During m y last hometime I rode my 450 twice and honestly, got my ass handed to me. I am just not in the physical shape I was when I threw trash for a living. 7 weeks ago I ordered up a 17 my xtrainer. Up until now, I was like, why buy a new bike when you get so few chances to ride. This weekend I stopped in Mojave CA at Jawbone canyon and rented a crf230 for 24 hours. Fun bike, small, ok power yada yada. Here's the reality, I rode a hard 6 hours and never got tired and had a lot of fun. Solidified the purchase of a new 1" taller30# lighter, new suspension bike. Cannot wait to throw a leg over the new Beta

    19812t enduro frame

    Stopped a frame,forks, swingarm, pair of Ohlins rear skocks from being tossed into our landfill. Good airbox also. This bike was reported to hit crazy top speeds.

    01 ec250 on my radar

    Just roda a 1 owner ec250 a friend took in on trade. Neverreally looked at gasgas before and was surprised with the fit n finish on the bike. The motor was decent, little to no bottom end with a meaty mid and okay top. Pretty well what I expected. What I am really digging are the Ohlinsfront n rear. I run about 270 without gear so mist bikes will be sprung for me which , at close to 500 a bike , makes aused bike un realistic as most guys arent knocjing crap off the price for springs This bike has it already, I had to back off tge clickers as they were too stiff for me. Guy wants 2400 with title, so really 1900$. Thoughts on price and opening up cockpit and bottom end.

    Beta X-Trainer 300

    No, the trip wouldn't be worth it for your purchase. Apex has the volume to get you a better deal. Sean does exceptional work, the suspension work he has done for me on mine is unreal. When he installed my Rekluse we spent a day tuning it to exactly what I wanted and he charged me for the hour install and not a dime more.

    Beta X-Trainer 300

    They need jetted at this altitude, and the above mentioned dealer charges 275$ for jetting and have seen 2 bikes personally,that never had jetting touched. Still jetted for sea level.
