    Too Tech Suspension, Torrance Ca. ?

    I had Rick do my '02 XR650 and it "seemed" like the bike was 40 lbs lighter. I could fly through the whoops at Cal City! Unbelievable difference. He also did my wife's XR400, my YZ250, and my '04 CRF450 (the current race scoot). Of all those bikes, the 650 was the one that showed the most drastic improvement.

    CRF450R riders

    6' 205 lbs. You can handle it fine.

    Sound testing in Ocotillo Wells!

    I saw "the Man" cruising around, but did not see him checking anyone for anything.

    Z-start instalation ?

    The clutch is very easy to install. The accessory clutch adjuster/override was not quite as easy and I had to call them a few times for clarification. They told me they were working on new documentation.

    who uses fork support to tie bike down?

    I use them all the time. For 16 bucks, it's just worth the peace of mind that you're not weakening your fork seals and springs needlessly.

    Vet X at Cahuilla this weekend!

    Yep, had a good time. My wrist is all messed up. Not sure how that happened. Too bad about your 1st moto start. You would have smoked me otherwise. Looking at the photos on-line I can see my cornering technique sucks. I look like an old man ... oh wait ... Guess that's where I'll be concentrating for awhile.

    Ocotilio Wells

    Man, the thought of Alan going through this major life-changing event because of negligence makes me sick. At least before he could chalk it up to taking a digger (like all of us have) and the luck of the draw. Now he has to live with the fact that somebody's f**k up caused all this. That's a tough pill to swallow.

    It's a good lookin' dark gray RAM 2500 4x4. I'm gonna try to get the spot we had the last time we rode up there.

    Yo Leon, I pitted (is that word?) with a guy yesterday who was making his first run on a new RM250. He had been racing a CRF450 for the last few years. At first he was so-so on it, but he got happier as the day went on.

    Hey Mike, come on up to Cahuilla on Sunday and line up at the gate. You can race the 1st time beginner class and they let you race the first time without having to join. I'd say you could race against me and Leon, but you're still a youngster and we race in the old man's class.

    Jimbo136, Jimbo137 ... it's all good. I went out to Cahuilla today to practice. Running the track backwards is a trip, but cool once you get used to it. I had a pretty major get-off up there two weekends ago, as Rokatt88 will recall, and today I was plagued by the "first-ride-since-I-crashed-my-brains-out" syndrome. Hopefully, I can shake that monkey before Sunday.

    Subframe bent

    Thanks for the info, matte. The bend isn't too bad so I'll try to get it out with brute force before forking out the bread.

    Subframe bent

    Thanks. I am going to try to straighten it first, especially after seeing the price!

    Subframe bent

    I took a digger and bent my subframe. Does anyone know where I can get one online? I tried a few of my regular places and none of them had a listing for one.
