    Any of you ladies start riding over 30?

    Have fun. I've taken up riding and ice hockey both at almost 40.

    Bike Size for girlfriend 5'2"

    The TTR125LE is a fun little bike to ride. Plan on doing some suspension work though. It's too soft stock. I was riding very aggressive and it still bottomed out.

    Aug. 7 ride possible?

    I live by Canon City and work in Colorado Springs. We do most of our riding in the southern parts of the state. Planning on doing a overnite trip over Tincup/Hancock Pass in a couple of weeks.

    Best fork springs

    I put the BBR springs on front and rear and it made a difference. Just put cartridge emulators in last night.

    Help! Adjust preload on rear shock

    We bought a spanner wrench but just not enough room to use it. Large screwdriver and a hammer does the job.

    National Anthem - Please stand up!

    As a five year old my son would tell people to stand up and take their hats off.

    Installing springs and seals

    I installed the BBR fork and shock springs last night on my bike. Alot easier than I thought it would be. Can already feel a difference just around the house. Can't wait to try it out on the trails.

    TTR125LE bar height question

    I'm only 5'2" and felt the bars were too low also. I just put some taller Renthal bars on mine and it made a world of difference standing up while trail riding.

    Should You Wake A Sleeping TTR125 ?

    I just put taller bars on my ttr125le and it made a world of difference out trail riding.
  13. Try a Mopar part number 56045795AB. It is a blue connector with 4 wires and a paper with instructions on it.

    Riding Ouray?

    We love the Lake City area. Shouldn't be hard on a bike. We've rode it on bikes and and ATV's. Jeeps have a lot harder time on the trails. Ploughkeepsie Gulch is the only place we wouldn't let our then 4 year old ride the atv in one area. Rode down about 200 feet then walked him through. The weather changes alot. Been snowed on just about everytime we've been.

    Generator & A/C

    If you plan on going anywhere with altitude figure on a bigger generator. We had been researching this for awhile. Everything we looked at that would be large enough was heavy and expensive. Finally found a setup that we just bought. Instead of one large generator it uses 2 Honda eu2000i generators and a parallel connector. If we need the A/C or microwave we use both. If just charging the batteries we use one. So far it works great and is quiet. Was less expensive and lighter than the Yamaha generator we were looking at.
