    SENIOR DIRT RIDERS BLAB!

    Huh, that’s interesting. It seems like all the dairies in my area have old Detroit powered backup generators. My grandfather used to work in a parts room for the San Francisco municipal transit agency, back when the buses had Detroit’s in them. He told me they had some big ass turbos going in and out of there, he’s send batches of like 30 out for rebuilding. Said he was always sending engines out too, I wish he would’ve brought a turbo home lol, be pretty crazy sticking one of those on my truck [emoji23]. It’d probably never even get it to spool, I don’t think the VE pump even heavily modded could put out that much fuel lol. I went to go watch some truck pulls last night, 1st and second place Pro Mod went to 24 valve Cummins trucks, followed by, you guessed it, a Duramax. Saw a few first gens in the Pro Lite class, didn’t do so good, both had issues getting the turbos spooled. Those guys go through some serious money doing that.

    Because they where directed injected? The crank and everything south of the rings got engine oil right? No premix required (I think?).

    Nice! Those 3 wheelers are bad news lol, my friends mom broke her back on one, then her husband bought her another one [emoji23].

    Some of the bikes I saw Custom built XR600, the dude made it to look like a old school flash red Honda but actually it’s a late ‘90s XR600 engine with modern suspension off of a 2014 KTM. That bike was quick. The next one is a ‘86 YZ490, the dude who owned it said it was pinging a little still, surprise surprise, a YZ490 pinging [emoji23]. Still, a very nice bike. Saw others too but didn’t get pics, that was dads job, I was too busy riding [emoji41]. And a rare picture of Bigfoot riding his bike. Look at the guy on the Husqvarna behind him, he gets it, he’s making the most of this rare occasion 🤣

    Yup, first time I’ve had this much fun in a while. Hadn’t rode the bike since August. I was tired after about 45 mins lol, but managed an hour and a half of riding today [emoji106].

    Yes! I forgot to mention, new tires made a HUGE difference. The bike corners so much better with them now. I was telling dad that I was attacking corners more aggressively than at Carnegie. Even in the washes and rutted parts they helped a lot with keeping it straight going where I pointed it. Overall an amazing day of riding, second only to the day I first started the bike after rebuilding. The next thing to fix is the rear shock and spring, I bottomed it out once or twice. Some of the older guys where telling me too when they watched me ride that it was hindering me, especially on jumps. It’s 30 year old suspension, I don’t blame it lol. The front handles pretty good, just a little loose in the washes.

    Thats the one thing I regret, I didn’t get it on video. I went to get my camera this morning and the SD card was full. Next month I’ll get it. Planning to ride Hollister in a few weeks, will get that on video. But I’ll tell you, this track was AWESOME, way better than the hard pack shit at Carnegie. It’s on an old river bed, so loose loamy almost sand, almost washed out in some places lol. I also met the guy who organizes it, he’s from Tracy, only 20 mins from my house lol, cool guys there for sure [emoji106]. Dad liked it to, he wants to go again next month. .

    Yeah I want to. I’ve been on trails at Carnegie, only problem is I’m a noob and fear going out and crashing and then being stuck with no help lol.

    Saw a new Husky 300 at the track today. Not gonna lie, if I had the money, I would get one. They are really nice bikes.

    Just finished the day. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to ride Carnegie again lol. It was TONS of fun, a prepped track is just so much more fun. Your not bouncing off of shit like at Carnegie, you can get on the throttle and not worry about pulling a wheelie every time, even though I did a few times lol. Saw lots of cool old school bikes, two other ‘86 CR250s, and ‘88, and Maicos, a YZ490, Honda XR600 hybrid, Ossa, a Hodaka, some old RMs, no Kawis though. I’m thoroughly exhausted now, and can guarantee I’ll be sore tomorrow [emoji23]

    Ready to go, finished it yesterday. Clutch cable rerouted and hour meter has been moved Started it to make sure it runs, has been sitting since early August. Was a little worried, but it fired up on the second kick. We’re ready to go for tomorrow [emoji106] Killed all the mosquitos on the property clearing it out lol

    Almost ready for Sunday, just need to re-route the clutch cable and move the hour meter. Unless I sustain a life threatening injury or my bike gets destroyed, I should be good to go.
