Eel, Thumbs and Jack are heading out to red mountain to ride and lay out part of the couse, not tie ribbon just decide where it's going to go. I'm sure you'd be welcome to hook up with them. Sadly i can't make it.
Nevermind.... Just got home from work and I gotta go back tomorrow. Work sucks....Never have anytime to ride and the wife is starting to get irritated because we dont get to spend any time together.
89'r - its not perfect but its very close.
Endo- After I cleaned the fork seals with a piece of film I was holding the front brake so I could cycle the forks. Thats when I noticed fluid dripping on my radiator shroud. I pulled everything apart and cleaned it up and it appears to have stopped leaking. Seems that the bolt might have come loose. Where is your shop located?
Thumbs- I called Tim this morning.. Im feeling pretty bad about neglecting the club and really wanted to come out. Maybe next time.
Well Jeff, since you're out I don't feel so bad. We got the new tank for the YZ and have to put her back together Sunday. I still have jetting issues, and need to dedicate one day to jetting. As soon as the bikes are up to snuff we'll be ready!
Dont feel bad Jeff, I havent ridden in so long my green baby wont even talk to me now. Now she just turns her tailpipe at me and gives me the finger with her brake lever. Im thinking I should probably wash her since its been over a month. Jeff you need to get the women into riding. That way she wont complain. Im thinking you and I need to get them out to the Mirage lake bed and get both mine and your on a bike. Ive been saving a CR80 for my wife but getting her to ride it is another story. Im thinking if she was out with your half she might do it. We can let them ride while we watch then in the second half you and I head out for a ride while the women kick back from those long miles on the lake bed. Who says us men cant compromise?
If anybody is going to El Mirage, let me know when. I need to go someplace easy for my first ride back, so I'll just stick to the lakebed and nearby area. But of course, the real gnarly riders will check out the tougher stuff the area has to offer. :laugh:
I'll probably bring my 11 year old if she's not doing anything else.
I took her out there 2 years ago. It had to be the hottest windiest (is that correct?) day in El Mirage history. She rode my sons XR100 for about 5 minutes and swore she would never go back. I guess it was just bad timing.
Man are you sure your wife isnt related to mine? She was the same way except I have a plan. Im thinking about having her go to that Honda riding class. Its about $125 and they get to ride the XR's for the day. Besides if she decides to get the death grip and runs the throttle wide open she cant blame me but the instructor of the class. Seriously, Im not sure if the CR80 is a good learning bike since its extremely pipey but if you want you can use it to teach or have her go to the Honda class with mine. That way we both can sit there and have a hotdog and laugh oops I mean smile while they put around the track.
