    RAC riding meetup thread

    I'm going to head up Thursday or Friday if anyone is around. The wife and I will be up one of the weekend days too. This whole "I have to go back to work next week" is gonna suck. Worst summer vacation of riding to date. Hopefully Autumn will be less soggy.....I still can go out on weekends.

    How were the trails after all that rain? What does the "playground" area look like?

    Just purchased 2017 Beta 300rr

    How do you like the mud scrapers... I've read they not only do the whole mud scrape thing but also help keep our guards from rubbing on the fork tubes

    2014 exc 350f question

    I expected noise. But when the mechanic told me off the bat it was piston slap knowing how many hours were on the bike I passed.

    Well I passed on it. Looked OK, but once fired up there was a tapping. The mechanic standing there said it sounded like piston slap. More will come

    2014 exc 350f question

    Was an older guy who owned it. Buddy with one of the shop guys fathers. Has 9000 miles on it. I counted 300 hours at 9000 miles he averaged 30 mph. I'll get to see the bike over weekend... so testing comes then. Shop is reputable and is willing to work me on things so I am sure I can get maintenance records and even have any new once over done. Used stuff is always a risk I know. I've owned many used street bikes but I am just getting into dirt so I am trying to be educated about what to look for and ask about Thanks

    2014 exc 350f question

    I'm actually giving you info from the shop the guy is selling it thru.... So the shop is telling me the test was done by them recent. It does in fact have street dual sport tires on both ends with more emphasis on street ability. I'm just getting mixed thoughts on the hours.
  13. Going to look at this bike to possibly purchase. Looks great, was told it was 95% street ridden, but it has almost 300 hours and no rebuild. Should I be concerned? All other maintenance was done by a good shop and a leak down test was recently done and it was all good.
