  1. Here's one for a test. http://s36.photobucket.com/albums/e27/2fiftyjeff/?action=view&current=001_24A.jpg
  2. Red Wing Shoes and Boots, still made in USA
  3. The Quads were definitly out last Sunday, but eveyone we encountered was paying attention. I was really suprised for a holiday, I figured it would be bad.
  4. My son and I where riding the denton loop trails on Sunday and when we returned to the parking area for some lunch, I saw a DNR truck parked behind my trailer. Turns out he was writing the guys next to us, tickets for riding in unauthorized area. I guess they misunderstood some signals from the DNR officer and almost got written for attempting to flee. The guy turned out to be a nice guy, he hooked us up with larger scale maps of the trails and explained details about parking in other un-marked areas near the trail. I had no idea you can pull off the road and park near the trail, as long as your not impeding traffic. Also I was shocked at how few people, we saw on the trails for a holiday.
  5. When you say the west loop, does that mean you head off west from the Parking area shown on DNR map ? or do park and start at a different location?
  6. Anyone Been on the Denton Loop recently?? Last time we rode there, it was super dry and the sandy areas were wearing us out.
  7. A total rebuild will be alot less, than what you'll spend buying and maintaining a stroker. Nobody said riding and racing dirt bikes was cheap.
  8. Wow 50 to 1 , I am not that brave, the leanest I go is 36 to 1, I know pretty weak.
  9. Weld a bi-pod to the handle bars and get an m-60 machine gun, fabricate a custom bracket to it to attach to the bi-pod. then you can steer your bike and fire your machine gun at the same time. how awsome is that!!
  10. Where is this Ogemaw track located ? Ive never heard of it before
  11. Is there a website that might show directions to some of the trails listed, such as the Evart/Cadillac trail you mentioned????
  12. I rode a 06 KXF250 for one year, then went back to a YZ250 and I have mixed feelings about the whole deal, The KXF really was a great bike, but the maintenence required seemed like more time than I was wanting to invest, I really liked the suspension on that bike, it seemed as if it didn't matter how badly, I landed a jump, it always soaked it up. I did ride a crf450's before I bought the 250f but it felt too heavy for my sorry skills. The Yz250 is just pure fun, so I still think I made the right choice, for me.
  13. The word "Motor" just rolls off the tongue and combines better with so many vehichle names, "enginecycle " not so good.
  14. Many people became used to the Phrase "Never Raced" because back in the days when 2-strokes ruled, racers would run the fuel + oil mixture lean on oil too get a bit more power, thus causing extra wear on under lubricated motor parts. The experienced cycle buyer can tell if a bike has been maintained or not very quickly.
  15. I have been going thru a lull in my motivation to go riding, more because I had a bad experience with my health insurance provider, that had me worried that if I did end up breaking something, I would go broke for sure. Last year my daughter broke her arm on the neighbors trampoline (compound fracture) and at the end of all the surgeries and hospital visits I ended up owing thousands of dollars. I guess more than anything it's been my son's lack of asking to go, that has been keeping me away from the track.
