Been away from here for quite a while only to come back and find a ghost town. Where did everyone go?

Let's see.... Life, facebook, instagram, twitter, work, age, corporate mega-sites?
Where'd you go?

Nice to see an "old" name!

I pretty much stopped riding dirt bikes and went to the street. So much easier to hop on the bike in the driveway and ride rather than load up and drive 40 miles to ride. I'll get back to the dirt soon.

Life, kids and other social media outlets that people prefer to argue without moderation I guess :)

I miss the good ol days but the only constant in life is change.

Glad this place is still up and running if only for historical reasons. DRN still has a vast amount of technical knowledge from past threads that can help people out.

Glad to see there is still some activity around here. I don't ride as much as I used to but when I do I really suck wind! Was out yesterday and was too sore to walk after only an hour on the bike. I keep telling myself that I just need to ride more but my body is falling apart. I won't stop though!!

Getting a trials bike has allowed me to ride even on days when my parts are too beat up to handle an MX bike. Plus crashing at 3 mph seems to hurt a lot less.

Yeah, I went from MX to strictly trail riding but a slower trials bike is looking pretty good, although 3 mph sound a bit aggressive doesn't it? _BGRIN_

The speed freak in me has been tough to tame. LOL

I retired from motocross in '08. It was not intentional, it just worked out that way because of injuries, job loss, etc.

I have a street bike and a dual-sport bike. I ride somewhere between 13k and 26k miles per year. I'm currently at about 21k so far this year. I very much prefer dual-sport over strictly street. I still have my mx bike. It looks good setting over in the corner of the garage.

I check in here about twice a month.
