    Maintenance, adjustments, and modifications to our Betas

    Might try to use one of those tools to remove broken sprinkler heads. Is the copper piece there to expand and contract with the heat to keep a good seal?
  2. This isn't Rocky Mountains fault. This is the a stipulation made by the manufacture. I order bicycle parts all the time from Europe when they are cheaper, some brands, like Specialized won't allow it. In some cases they won't let shops in the US ship some of their products (especially bikes). They do this in order to protect their shops, if can walk into a bike shop, test a bike, waste the time and experience of the sales staff, then go home and order it online for less then soon those brick and mortar shops are out of business. For some products it's about shipping across country borders.

    How often do you change your clutch and brake fluids?

    This vid is for an Aprilia Tuono but the concepts will work on any car or bike. The advantage to reverse bleeding is it forces the air up and out (it's natural path). I've been doing it this way for years and it's way better than any other method I've tried.

    Try reverse bleeding next time. It's way more efficient than a vacuum bleeder.

    I do both the brake(s) and clutch fluids every spring in all my bikes. Reverse bleed FTW[emoji16]

    what armor do you use for offroading?

    I got my Alpinstars bionic off of eBay NWT for 100 shipped. I think it helped that I wear a small and that size isn't as in demand as the larger sizes. Still that's the kind of stuff that I don't mind paying a bit more for if I can't source a deal. An extra 30 bucks is worth not having broken ribs or a shattered elbow. I always ride with the right gear, street or dirt. My cousin (who has always been a like a big brother to me) has a saying, "it's better have it and not need it than to need it and not have it". I kinda live my life that way.

    I just bought a lot of new stuff recently, there is a ton of 2018 pants, jerseys, gloves, boots etc out there for super cheap. Scored some nice Fly Racing gear for next to nothing a few weeks back.

    The problem with Motorcycles

    One bike or one hundred I'm totally stoked to be able to ride one. I got my first mini bike at age 5 and 52 years later I'm still ripping it up, allbiet a little slower and a lot smarter. [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16]

    The Ralph and Ricky carnival act...

    I got to see Roger DeCoster at there it was awesome. Sam was clueless about MX but he was brilliant with his autoracing announcing.

    That's what I want to do with my Duc.... For some inexplicable reason I'm not getting a lot of support here at home for this idea[emoji23][emoji23]

    I had an Atlanta with Record... Wish to God I had never sold that bike. Ben was a genius
