  1. I have seen some of these things advertised and while it's a cool idea, I just can't imagine replacing my current ride with one. My question is this: If the mainstream dirt bike manufacturers built a bike that weighed less than what is standard, delivered more torque, had an equivelent or greater range and could be recharged in the field with something like small chemical battery chargers, would you consider one? If you said no, what additional features would an electric dirt bike have to have in order to change your mind

    why not diesel dirtbikes?

    http://autospeed.com/cms/A_2823/article.html I know it's not in a bike but this engine's a beast. I think the technology for bike sized, light weight high performance diesel will be a reality before too long.

    Just renewed my AMA membership

    As hopeful as I am about it, Mike Poole of the BLM might just get his way and keep the place closed permanantly. It was never about public safety. It's about litigous liability. Thanks to all of the lawyers who are making a really good living from asbestos litigation, we are losing the CCMA.

    Just renewed my AMA membership

    It was a little harder to justify renewing my membership this time around given the way the AMA is screwing around with sanctioning events in and around District 36. If it weren't a requirement of the club I'm in, I'd probably tell them to piss off and just support Outlaw events. Oh well, at least I can sleep better tonight knowing that the AMA has worked so hard to keep some unknown minor street through a gated community in New Hamshire open for street bikes. Thanks AMA.

    Wearing Glasses with goggles

    How do they work in really dusty environments?

    Wearing Glasses with goggles

    They do work well but if you get a case of the steamy sweats on a cold day at an enduro checkpoint they fog up faster than the back of a Chevy Malibu at the Senior Prom.

  8. How many of you guys wear glasses under your goggles? I've spoken with a guy that had some custom goggles made with his prescription lenses built into them but he told me that the lenses are separate from the main part of the goggle and that he had a problem with dust building up in between them. After spending the last week riding in Nevada I just about went crazy trying to keep my specs clean. Anyone have a solution for your blind brothers?

    Violent Backfires

    It sounds like you may have more than just a single issue. Definatley check your timing and verify that there are no air leaks around the carb boot. I'd also check your valve adjustment. That would be a good start. A little more info would help.

    Any Sneakers around?

    Are there any members from the Sneakers MC floating around in here? The first wave of Ramblers is due out to the Hot Tub on the 12th of October. Danm Nevada's a blast!

    Just bought it, have question!!

    Yep, it sounds like the starter cog isn't disengaging. Yank the cover and check the mechanism. Double check for any loose or boken pieces in the bottom of the case too.

    is removing the spark arrestor bad?

    Yep and if you start a forest fire with it, you'll really be in the stink. Look into an aftermarket unit if you want more performance but don't run without one unless you're on a closed course.

    WR426F Graphics Kits?

    Sharp looking machine you got there. That's actually just about what I was looking for. Thanks! I'll have to get myself some. Just one other question though, will they make me look taller? LOL

    WR426F Graphics Kits?

    It has come to my attention that in order to climb steeper hills, sluice through single track faster than Oprah on a baked ham and look like an all American good guy when unloading the WR off the back of my beat up old Ford, I need a new graphics kit. (Just Kidding) I've been looking around for a kit that's fairly conservative but a little more colorful than the stock two tone. Everytime I find one that I like it's either for a YZ or newer 450. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've thought about buying one for a different model and X-acto knifing the things to taste but I'd rather get something that's supposed to fit right out of the box. Thanks!
  15. Robert "Bear" Hornady sucumbed to panreatic cancer this morning. He was an avid motorcyclist belonging to the Salinas Ramblers Motorcycle Club and rode street and dirt. He also served as a rescue diver for Monterey County almost to the end. Bear was our resident Rocket Scientist as he was a nuclear physicist who helped invent Carbon Dating as well as hydrogen plasma generation with the Jet Propulsion Labs as well as The Lawrence Livermore Labs. I used to torment him with such questions as: when it rains, do radio waves get wet? He was also an avid sailor who raced Santana class sailboats. I had the fortune of crewing for him. Bear's father founded the Hornady Ammunition Company. Bear, we're gonna miss you buddy. Nevada just won't be the same without you. Godspeed.
