pat on the back for me? No way, it's for the DRN'ers, Service Honda, Eric Gorr and Jeremy Wilkey. Everyone that was involved KNOCKED-IT-OUT.

Great job to all that brought this together. I am wanting to get my hands on a copy of the mag also, but as usual, I am out here drilling a hole in the ground.

Moteaux! Your professional mud tester.

Finally got our copy today, great article. I have only read about the DRN bike. That was the first thing I read in the whole mag! Sweet looking bike. I would ride it if someone could start it for me! :laugh: Although it would kill me on the MX track.

The TT crowd seem to be a little upset :yikes:
Yes it would appear that is the case, perhaps even a understatement. I can appriciate their frustration to some level but personally I can't relate to them trying to take it out on Jimmy Lewis by trying to spin some kind of tale about him riding on closed land. Obviously they are missing some key information that might make that rant a bit embarassing to some people.

Heck there was some misunderstanding or frustration when the bikes were delivered if I recall as it was also mentioned in the article.

Also attempting to create some justification or maybe place blame because the AFX read over 96dB seems to show some level of misunderstanding regarding how the enforcement is done. This link http://www.dirtrider.net/forums3/showthread.php?t=136251 might help some folk understand it a little bit.

Overall I think it was a positive for all the sites involved but a lack of communication seems to have caused some reactions from day 1 to take place that might not really be fully based on facts.

Man the Drama Public responce by the other site <--Link

Just FYI

Patman I appreciate your link and explain on the db/sound issue, I agree with it. I am in agreement with stealth 100%, I find the hardest to convince is our own community. Personally I see what is going on over there is reflective to the wrong side of the community and that is sad. Personal Opinion only

In case any DRN'ers feel the need to get involved in the firestorm over there, I sure can't stop you, but will respectly ask that any comments you make do NOT appear to be speaking for or on behalf of, DRN. We aren't going to get involved with that stuff, cool?

500AF test

Sweet read from an owner of a 2000 Service Honda 500 AF unit. I love my bike and would only get off it for a newer 500AF. The article points out what we www.CR500Riders.com folks knew all along!

Kudos!

And about the sound ... we won't send a bike out next time (if there is a next time) without doing our own sound testing. While an exhaust sytem can come in at it's rated levels, when put on a specific bike there can be flux ... we will ensure our entry will come in below whatever the law requires (yes, the DRN AFX DID). In fact, we'll make a REAL effort to balance power and as little noise as possible. 92-94 dB should be the target.
