Re: Getting ready for dual sporting

Now I just have to figure out tire pressures for dual sporting. My friend and I are on the MT-21/D606 combo and running about 16 psi for trail rides. He's got rim locks in his and I think rightfully decided that any lower might risk some rim damage or pinches. I've got the Tubliss system in mine (o...

Re: MotoMorini ADV bike

I couldn't find where they said how much it would weigh. If that number was a good thing it seems like it would have been in the press release.

Re: Mountain Ridge 10/18, 10/19, and 10/20

We hauled the bikes up to Bedford Thursday night and got out to the park at 9a Friday when they opened. We explored more than half the trails there and I think this place holds a lot more potential for getting our kids started out on dirt bikes. https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Dual-Sport-Ride...

Thanks Bruce.

We're always looking for someplace to take the kids to ride.

Re: Riding Michaux

Yep, anytime I see an open gate in michaux I ride it! My dad used too say that sometimes it's easier too ask for forgiveness than for permission. I had a hunter yell at me one time and said some things, I just politely waved and tried really hard to keep off the throttle :roost: I'll just never und...

Re: Mountain Ridge 10/18, 10/19, and 10/20

How'd this ride go? A couple of friends and I are headed up there tomorrow night to ride on Friday and Saturday. Never been there and wanted to check it out before the end of the season - they shut down apparently after this weekend. Just curious about what we can expect there? I'll ride all day on ...

Re: Suspension advice - Shop for lowering?

I'm familiar with these guys: https://www.mrpmotorsports.com They have a great reputation for the track day guys for suspension set up. Give them a call to see if they can help you on your Husky. They're in Pasadena MD. But again, I think you can probably reduce your reach to the ground by nearly 2"...

Re: Suspension advice - Shop for lowering?

I second that about just saying no to lowering. I've got an inseam between 29-30" and can attest that you can actually get used to having to slip off the saddle to get a foot down. And you'll always enjoy the ground clearance if you ride any gnarly off-road. Try a lower seat or even customize the se...

Re: A DAMN long way from home

It's the first time I've been back out there since 2015 when we rode the TAT. I feel like I checked off my bucket list for the Rockies on this ride so I don't see going back soon. There's so many great places to ride and so little time....

Re: A DAMN long way from home

There was an odd thing about this ride. My friends and I rode the Trans America Trail in 2015 and it goes over Cinnamon Pass. I distinctly remember that we all thought it was the most challenging riding we'd ever done (on KLRs loaded for camping and a 3 week trip). I remember back then thinking oh c...
