    Picture Tread! Where did you all ride this weekend?

    Katoom doing the Park Bench Trick at Area 51 today

    Gonna be lots of trees to cut tomorrow! This wind has stuff all over the place here in south sound. I’m going to send Katoom up and down all the terrain trash at Area 51 tomorrow. Got my silky saw ready. Forecast tomorrow looks good!

    Orcas frankly aren’t that great. I prefer California Condor for dinner. Orca is too fat and chewy. Even the dog won’t eat that crap. Ok, back to grenade fishing in the South Sound...

    The trouble with Shinko is that while the tire is soft and pliable, it deteriorates extremely fast. GT tires in fact may not be as likeable the first 2-3 rides as they are a bit stiffer and benefit from a few break in rides. Also, the Shinko is made from used asian rubbers. Who wants that on their front end?

    The Goldentyre Fatty front is in my opinion the biggest no brainier tire in the world. Especially if you are over 200 lbs.

    I took mine out first time on my 350 a few years back at Cap Forest. I promptly drove straight into the bushes and crashed! Bloody bike simply wouldn't turn with the factory settings. It should literally be unnoticeable when you are riding. Every once in a while I feel a pulsating feel as it activates for example on whoops, baby head rocks etc. It's at that moment where it resists grabbing left or right. The less movement in the bars then reduces fatigue and arm pump. In sand, there is very violent pulling and pushing of the front end, and the stabilizer there really pays off. I got my first one about 6 months into my return to riding back in 2015. My arms and hands hurt so bad, almost like arthritis. It was my body adjusting to the new use of motion in upper body. More riding and the stabilizer instantly reduced my arm pump fatigue by 75%.

    It’s all a matter of skill, desire to conquer, weight, etc having ridden several times with Katoom. High level expert rider, aggressive and demanding rider, high speed. He’s also a big dude. All those factors only add to the benefits of him having a stabilizer

    I have Scott’s stabilizer. Wouldn’t ride without one. Had three of those expensive things when I had 3 bikes, now two. Seriously reduces upper body fatigue. The bike tracks more predictably on trails. In something like Mattawa you’ll notice the most obvious difference. Went to Florence dunes two years ago. Both my 2016 bikes were brand new. One had the stabilizer the other didn’t. The one without was far more difficult to control. Several of us tried both bikes and we all agreed that the stabilizer made a meaningful impact. On a limited budget though, a person should spend money in other places first. A stabilizer that isn’t properly set up will not do you any good. Scott’s sends theirs out so stiff they are unusable and dangerous. Slavens has a video on properly setting the product up for trail bikes.

    King County Stalin counts the votes. If adjustments are necessary for the good of society, they make them for us.

    Russ was on that 501 last Saturday. He’s pretty quick on that thing. Nice guy, mean rider.

    Sadly, 1/2 the people reading this vote for these people... The other half don’t but have their ballots altered or nullified by vote fraud. Some day soon our dear leaders will win with 97% of the vote! The 3% will be sent to education camps.

    Exactly. They have a narrative, agenda, an unquenchable appetite for money, they play dirty, they have perverted the law to become only stoppable by We The People. And that is why they are coming hard for the 1st and 2nd amendment. Wheres our yellow vests?

    The enemy doesn’t care about anything other than power, money and advancing communism. A couple few hundred dirt bikers in this state matter little or none.
