winter preparations is to take the grip studs out of last years rear tire to put them into a newer old tire and buy a box of sheet metal screws for the front :cool: motorcycle road trip to Kingston for hex head sheet metal screws, a new front tube from the Harley dealer and a big bottle of fish glue from lee valley is in order, I can fit all that in a back pack no problem (y)

... and maybe another half dozen 6004 wheel bearings :unsure: I think I'm running low on those again.

Another perfect riding day :cool: lots of riders came out to play follow me for one lap, I couldn't get a second lap out of them, I need better riders for that :LOL: or these guys need to get better at it, either way works for me.

Enduro riders consistently all want to ride the bars too heavy. If you're an enduro rider, you guys need to ride the rear wheel through the pegs way more. Try it you'll like it, and it won't wear you out near so bad :geek:

(y) Awesome, that lady enduro rider (Heather) just secured a race position for Saturday's event. Seeing as she rode some of the loop last weekend and others were not allowed to, she's opted out of any podium acceptance :cool: good rider and good sports person conduct 🏅 just wants to race (y)

Latest news: British racer and ‘MotoGP Legend’ Phil Read has passed away peacefully overnight at the age of 83. Read, a seven-times Grand Prix Road Racing World Champion, competed in the world championship from 1961 to 1976.

He was the first rider to win the 125cc, 250cc and 500cc titles, and was also an eight-time winner at the Isle of Man TT. In 1964 he became Yamaha’s first world champion and won a total of five championships with Yamaha and two with MV Agusta.

Who needs traction?

You should see if you can setup and host a Graham Jarvis workshop.
Me, I ran sweep at the event and only got stuck once. For me the challenge is to do the loop without putting a foot down and the trials bike makes it so much easier then walking or pushing. I'd be up for riding with Graham Jarvis (y) this weekend is suppose to bring perfect riding weather.

I had Ski Doo's go anywhere sled, 1974 Elan SS. It came with a 294 with Tillotson carbs. I put in a 340 with Mikuni's and a tuned exhaust, studded the track, widened the ski stance and that thing was a blast. It was easier to bring the front end up than on a bike.
