    War Stories

    I wanted to start a thread were we could talk about all the great memories we've had over the years. I have some memories that truly complete me when I look back, I bet we all do. It'd be cool if we could share some. Funny, painful, stupid, badass, whatever, it belongs here. I have so many I don't know where to start, so I'll start at the beginning. I remember the first time I ever took my new to me RM85 to the track. I was 14. Sandbox MX in Michigan if your from these parts. I practiced on the kids track for like 20 minutes and looked out at the big track and was mesmorized. All those big guys and big bikes ripping that huge intimidating track. I went for it, and my life was never the same. It was so hard but at the same time it was the most fun I'd ever had. A euphoria i had never felt. It was so profound, I was instantly in love. It was better than drugs or sex. The ruts were so intimidating, haha. I remember my face pasted to the window staring at the track as we drove away like "Oh my god that was the best thing EVER!" For months I couldnt wait to go back. That was fall, and the winter between then and the next time I rode was like torture. I would stay up til 2 AM everynight watching YZ125 gopro videos hahaha. We used to ride these powerlines behind one of my best friends house. We ripped the matted weeds down into perfect loamy black dirt, into a whooped out, rutted out oval. It was the perfect practice track. Everyday I would come home from school when I was 16, get on my YZ125, and ride a mile down to my friends house and we would rip the "track" all night. this was the first place where riding actually "clicked" for me. I started to "get it". I remember feeling that feeling of letting it go wide open 6th gear and just thinking "whatever happens, happens" or "F it" and letting the bike work underneath me. Such an amazing feeling. Spent so much time back there, thats when I really started to improve. Eventually the power company rep came back and told me i couldnt ride there anymore (which of course I still did) and then eventually a cop came back and said he didnt care but if the power company tells us to stop again we have to stop. We still rode back there, but it eventually got too overgrown. I'll throw in a few little shits just to bother you guys who are real uptight too lmfao... One time we were camping and my buddy started a huge fire with VP110 and put his back tire in the fire and roosted the shit out of it and made a dirt bike flamethrower. Or the time when we were in the powerlines and my other friend killed a rabid possum raccoon with a huge stick, and I hung it from the powerlines (it was our mark). I remember a time me and one of my best friends were riding the trails and he shot a baseball sized rock off his back tire and i clearly saw it in the air, watched it as it hit my neck, and we kept on ripping the turns 5th gear. That was a good/bad feeling. Second time I took another friend to the track, he tried to hit this step up which he shouldnt have even thought about trying to hit. After you land there is an immediate 90 degree left hand turn. He over shot the step up, landed flying W no hands on the bars, and rode like this into the 90 degree berm which was like a jump face, except steeper. He literally ass seat bounced 20 feet in the air, over the fence behind the turn where there is a good 40 foot drop onto a road. Everyone at the track watched and looked at me and I just started running. I literally ran across the track and said screw the rules, I thought my friend broke his back or neck or something bad. Sprinted as hard as I could in MX boots over this fence (his bike flew threw the fence and made a huge hole which is still there) and I found him with just the wind knocked out of him. I was so relieved that he was alive and not paralyzed. The flaggers and people that saw it couldnt believe it. We all thought he was gonna be messed up. Just a very very sore back. Kinda reminds me of the first time I went to Baja Acres MX and got landed on by a 450. fun times
  2. Went to Jewell MX in Watkins, CO on Monday and was pleasantly surprised to find out I had the entire park practically to myself. And in the process, cranked out my fastest lap times ever! Not to mention flying down some trails wide open in 3rd gear, and of course, a little enduro mixed in. Was a freaking epic day!

    Best Trails in Michigan?

    I was wondering what would be the best trails for an amateur dirt bike rider? Trails with variety like tight trails, climbs, rocky, enduro stuff. Not just a straight wide line the whole time you know? Give me some options.
  4. I was wondering what the deal is with the OFTR, As I am aware, you dont need a OFTR membership to ride at gannaraska but you do at norththumberland. I have been trying to do things legally, I have insurance, green plate etc... but it seems everytime I find somewhere to ride there is something else you need. So my question is, Do you need and OFTR membership to ride Norththumberland trails and what is the OFTR? Do they check for memberships on the trails?

    KTM 250 MXC?

    I have been riding dirt bikes for a little less than a year and I always ride trails and enduro. I have a crf250x right now and want to get a two stroke to go with it, should I get a Ktm 250 mxc? Or should i go with a yz 250 or cr 250? I've heard good and bad things about all of these bikes, and I need some help making a decision. I am going to look at this bike soon: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/mcy/d/2000-ktm-250-mxc/6552466361.html. I don't know if it is a good deal or not. Please help.

    Exploring Trails

    Made a little video of me riding some new trails we discovered, I had no clue where I was going. But I found out a way to ride a pretty fun loop to practice for woods races on. Check the video out, feedback is appreciated
  12. Hey guys, Im looking to buy a new Yamaha 2 stroke within the next couple weeks but i cant decide whether i would be happier with the 2018 yz 250 or the 2018 yz250x. Heres my riding background. Ive been riding for 15 years, I raced in the A class for 5 years until money got tight and i gave up racing all together. Since i then I realized how much fun single track riding is and just free riding with the buddies. I still occasionally ride tracks but about 80% of my riding is trails. I live in Michigan and if you have ever ridden in Michigan then you know the trails can get as rough as a motocross track. My local trails have sand whoops that i would compare to REDD-BUUUDDDS sand whoops. Ive never owned a "trail" bike ive always taken my race bikes and made them into "trail" bikes. My last bike being a Yz125. That being said i know all the mechanical and technical differences between the 2 bikes. Im a bit worried that the 250x just wont have the racey feel when im riding. Im also worried then when i do take it to the track the suspension will be a bit soft and the mellow hitting powerband will not allow me to seat bounce the big whoops. But now the standard yz250 might not have enough low end to help me skate through wet black slick dirt and the suspension might be a little to "non responsive" per say in studder bumps. Can you guys give me any sort of guidance. If you would like to check out my riding style on YouTube check out : "Yz125 2 stroke Shredding Michigan Enduro Trails." Thanks Guys

    Snappy throttle help!

    hey guys hey guys I need a little help. I just bought a 2017 Honda CRF250R I realize I should have got the X Edition but I can't trade up or get a different bike now so I'm left with trying to modify it to hit the trails. my question is I'm having a really hard time controlling the throttle at low revs and in tight technical terain because it's a Motocross Edition so what can I do to help the smooth the throttle so that I don't whiskey throttle it and end up on my back side all day long.. I am also new to riding g so any help please.
  14. Hello! I am new to this forum and hoping you guys can help me out. As this season approaches I'm am getting excited to ride. I just sold my old bike and got a KTM 200 for trails. That's the issue, there are no trails near where I live. Last year I would drive up to the iron range and spider lake and ride those trails. They were very fun and awesome trails but was only able to go a few times because of the drive. Does anyone know of trails near Lakeville or even large forests or places to ride? Anything withing an hour would be awesome! Also I heard that the Nemadji state park is good, has anyone ridden there? On a side note there is a decent sized woods near my house however there is a sign that says its owned by the county, what are the legalities with that land? is it safe to ride? Thanks!
  15. Hey guys, this is gonna sound really funny, but I have never ridden a formal motocross bike... I have only ever rode a KX65 (if you would even consider it a motocross bike), but I am 270-280 pounds and 6'1 so I had my legs over the handle bars and shifted with my hand.... So I wouldn't really consider that riding (I only made it about 30 yards before I fell sideways cause the powerband wouldn't hit in first gear), but in my "stable" I have a 2012 TTR-125 (Rigged up suspension to make extremely stiff for the weight), my ol' 1982 Kawasaki KD80 (about 65 PSI compression or so (Legit can turn it over by hand while its on the stand) but once it warms up gets reasonable compression), the CRF2sexyL (CRF250l) (Has a Two Brothers M7 Slip-On, EJK, CBR250R friction plate, Barnett Clutch springs for a CBR300R, 13t sprocket, Some handguards, Seat Concepts Seat, getting it from the shop today with a Full Race Tech Suspension overhaul, and probably some other stuff I forgot about), an Orion 70 (Chinese bike for my little brother when he comes to visit), and soon to be a DRZ-400 (Not sure S or E, but will add FMF full pipe and whatever the DRZ needs), a soon to be a CRF150R (and a custom seat (The person who I am buying this bike for rented one and said it turned his buttucks into hamburger meat)), hopefully a WR450R in the next couple years (Going to be dual-sportified MAYBE) or maybe a KTM 500 EXC (I am hesitant to KTM for some reason, just don't like orange I guess)... I won't ride the CRF150R since it won't formally be mine, so what is a motorcross bike like compared to all of my trail bikes? I have always riden trails, but I have been riding at Durham Town (google it), and the TTR-125 doesn't have enough oomph, and the CRF250L still might not have enough suspension (they have some gnarly trails).... Do I need a true motocross bike? Or will the race tech be enough? Really I just want a comparison of power and suspension, etc.... Should be a fun topic! P.S If anybody wants to ride at Durham Town I live like 25 minutes away, we could meet and ride! Ethan

  18. I am 5'5/5'6 134 pounds and 14 years old and am looking to get a new bike. I ride trails and might do some racing. I am coming off a klx140l and have outgrow the bike (power and size).

  19. Hello all, I am a PA resident living in the Pittsburgh area and I am looking for somewhere to ride some good trails that are not too far from Pittsburgh and places that I do not need Liability Insurance or a Title for my bike. Nothing too technical, just a good place to have some fun and not have to be an expert to make it through. Obviously the closer the better, but I am hoping to stay within 2-2.5 hours. I also do not mind going into West Virginia or Ohio if I have to as long as it is within my distance range. Thank you for the help in advanced, and sorry if this is a repeat of a thread, but I could not find what I was looking for.
  20. What changes need to be done to convert a Mx bike to a decent competitive woods bike? I'm thinking suspension work, hi flow water pump, larger radiators, bark busters, flywheel and clutch mods.. Any other suggestions?
  21. So I just bought a 2008 crf230f and the Spark Arrestor cap/ Silencer was removed from it. It is extremely loud and sounds awful. I was wondering if anyone had any advice for what I should get to replace. I'm looking for something that is loud as (or at least close to) the volume level that the stock muffler gives, performance is not really an issue for me. Also, I'm on a 50$ budget. Any advice is appreciated! Pic related
  22. Welcome to another beautiful weekend! This weekend of May 27th, we have: District 23 MX is Cambridge and Millville, presumably organized practice on Saturday if you're just a "professional practicer" like me Off-Road has nothing, but you should be getting ready for Huntersville Enduro on Sunday June 4th (3rd for youth) Hare Scramblers should be getting ready for Meadow Valley on Sunday, June 11th Open Motocross Arkansaw, WI Meadow Valley Trails I'm not sure here, this site http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/closures.html shows that some places are closed, where Snake Creek and Trout Valley in Southeast MN show open. Could be they got hit with less rain, have different soil or drainage, etc. Geez that's about all I can find. Pipe up if I'm wrong somewhere or you know more places open this weekend!
  23. I got into a small heated discussion with one of my coworkers the other day and i am still bugged by the conversation. Id like a little insight on the subject so feel free to share your opinion, concerns, comments or rambles. So i live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I just recently got into motorized riding and have been riding mountain biking for a few years now. I am outdoors as much as time allows. I care about the environment around me and do my best to clean up trails and keep nature as natural as possible. That said......My coworker is an intense Mountain biker. The discussion came about because i asked if she knew how to access a trail system near her house. She then attacked me verbally saying that us motorized riders don't respect trails, or we widen them, or we are just &%$#@!.(granted, we can all be &%$#@! or bitches if we want) I was a bit taken back by her accusations when all i did was ask a simple question. Now to her point if the trails were or are muddy and wet then i would indeed be destroying trails. But i wasn't planning on riding the trails, just wanted to figure out how to access them for when they do open in a week or so. Okay, all that being said my response to her was "I pay taxes, registration fees, my bike is insured, i have health insurance and i have to pay to use the trails on my bike. You however ride the same trails, motor ways and do damage to trails just like i do but do not pay ANY fees." SOOOO i guess my post is to ask a question to the community: Should mountain bikers be required to have a sticker to ride trails? Should they have to register their bike if riding on the road? Should us dirt bikers be allowed to ride mountain bike trails since we actually pay to use trails and roads?(I know, not very realistic) Have you ever had any troubles with a pedal biker on your dirt bike?
