Managed to ride the x today, hauled it to carrots place. We did not ride but 4 miles total but had a good time. Took an hour to clear some brush off a trail then we rode the trail. It was extremely warm and humid so we did all we could.
so a long week ends with a good Saturday ….. only had a few hours to play so we did .... sweating our ------ off , clearing some tree limbs to ride a trail , a great practice area for me and carrot , I need it badly.... no crashes today , yea.
good morning , weather and honey do's , and in july weather is about heat..... honey do's are negotiable ….. so if you want to ride you are going to sweat . the X has a headlight and have been thinking of a night trail ride at some point …… need more day practice first . any one trail ride at night ?
good evening , nothing happening , to damn hot. so here is what I've learned , you can buy a dirt bike at 60 yrs of age , and I am getting better , and I bought the right bike (based on price , as if I really sucked I would not have 12000 buried in it ) and I like looking at it even when I cant ride it ..... so I am going to take a break from this thread till something interesting happens , may be awhile …… thanks all for the support and info …. I am riding this sunday . hope ya'll get to ride also.
hot as hell here (well ,not sure the actual temperature of hell and have no desire to find out ) it is pretty hot . so will be riding the X tomorrow , and my friend and riding buddy (carrot , here on the forum) bought himself a wr250f ( so now we each have our own bike to ride , no taking turns on mine ) should be more fun.... so he has had his wr250f about 2 weeks now and has put more miles on it than I have on the X in 7 months …. of course he lives on a ranch and I live in a town ( im a bit jealous ) he can wake up and walk outside and take off in the woods from his front door . I (sad ) have to plan and then haul my bike some where (very sad ) just to practice ….. have finally checked the sag and I understand why I crash a lot now , will be replacing the rear spring for one that will support my big butt soon. my focus of late has been the tenere , had the valves checked at 31k (a little over due ) all inspect , had the recall issue (harness ) taken care of …. planning a trip in late September , so getting the bike ready.... plan A is a trip to Moab, plan B is palo duro canyon , plan C is..... well it goes on to plan E , which is I camp out in my back yard.... life can be a challenge. but I will ride somewhere.
carrot has been working on a system of trails to ride at his place , so it will be another hot Saturday ride.... hope to have pictures if I can find a place or pocket to store a phone..... 105 yesterday , forecast for Saturday is 101.
