    Ocean county power sports

    I go there all the time for years and never had a problem. An oil change and cleaning the air filter seems like a DIY project. Not that hard to do.

    CRF450L "BS to the Japanese engineers"

    Forgot 1 more thing: 3. NJ doesn't have motorcycle inspections so parts tend to "fall off" on the way home from the dealer.

    CRF450L "BS to the Japanese engineers"

    I know a lot of people are hating on the Honda's shortcomings, but I can tell you two reasons why I would have no problem buying this bike: 1. I can walk into the DMV and walk out with a license plate, no hassle. I don't have to register it in another state and hope the lady at the DMV doesn't notice. Getting a plate alone will make this bike desirable in NJ where it is impossible to register a dirt bike and it opens up hundreds of miles of trails. 2. My Honda dealer is 3 minutes from my house.­čśü

    Places to ride in New Jersey

    My friend is a retired LEO and he told me they are putting a lot of effort into the crack down on off roading which surprised him.

    Yeah I saw that too. The LEOs have the new HUMVEEs that you see in Iraq now.

    I don't think I would put too much trust into what people say. You can try it, but don't be surprised if you see a law enforcement HUMVEE waiting next to your truck. Local paper did a story on the Off Road Task Force.

    It's 100% illegal to ride there. The Ocean County Off Road Task Force made up of local, county, and state law enforcement agencies stepped up patrolling illegal off roading. You'll get caught and the fines aren't cheap. This is NJ after all.
  10. Thought they would update the DR-Zs a little. Looks like I'll be looking at the Honda 450L dual sport a little harder, though the DR- 400 still has a pretty good price.

    Single/Tandem axle

    I have a single axel trailer that I always carry a spare tire, but I never travel far with the it. I bought two extra wheels from Lowes that I rotate every year. Years ago I saw in a local mom and pop hardware store trailer tires that were solid rubber. Think they would work well as long as you didn't over load the trailer. Looks like when the tires are worn you replaced the whole thing, tire and rim. They were more expensive than pneumatic wheels, but not worrying about getting a flat could have been worth it. I went back there to see if they still had them, but no luck.

    Loss of a great man

    After being with me mom when she drew her last breath after a short stint with Alzheimers, it hit me hard. What helped me really get over it was when my brother and I got poster board and made a collage of all the photos we found in her bedroom to display at her funeral. Just looking at the pics of all our relatives and of us as youngsters put me in a good mood. My mom grew up in 40s to early 60s and I couldn't believe how many pics she had. My grandparents must of had a camera around their necks every day and this was before cell phones!
  13. Quiet for me. I've had good luck with Yoshimura slip on exhaust. Had them on three of my bikes and had people ride them and they were barely louder than stock with quiet inserts. Plus I did notice a slight increase in power. I've come home at 1 in the morning sometimes and my SIL wouldn't hear me pull into the driveway with the windows opened. Heard a guy with an FMF exhaust at a hare scramble, not sure which one, but the thing sounded like a moped. I talked to a Yosh representative at one race and he said a full system is a waste of money unless you do a lot of engine work. My friend is a retired LEO that rides dirt bikes and he always said that when he saw the Harley riders with straight pipes they drew his attention.

    New Jersey pine barrens riding spots?!

    Just saw on Lacey's police website that Lacey Township and all other southern Ocean County township's Off Road Task Force will be out in full force starting this weekend and running all the way to October cracking down on illegal off roading. Anyone trying to ride, best of luck. Make sure you have enough in your checkbooks to pay the fines.

    NC Title revoked

    Looks like they are going by the VIN. That number tells you everything about the bike including if it comes from the factory street legal. NJ has been doing this for a couple of years now.
