Re: Safe, Secure on Trail, in Camp

Truth be told all of this stuff has come in handy in one way or another, rarely used on my own bike though. I've learned that small problems out there turn really big when your not well equipped. Also can destroy a ride really fast for you and your riding partners. Yes my bag is heavy but I have a ...

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

It was definitely better, but still seemed less than ideal. My wife was happy enough with it, but I think it just bugged me to spend $8K on a bike with a good stock suspension, then another $1K to tune it, then hobble it by cutting down the travel and ending up with something that performs worse th...

Did you spring it softer for her weight? I am a firm believer in springs first, valving second.

Re: Just a little problem... loading and unloading the bike

I loaded my VFR 800 exactly once with a ramp and an egg crate... never again! I promptly went and bought a second ramp to walk on beside when loading and unloading. Cheap insurance! I now have more comfort and sometimes use one ramp and a very stable step with my Husky , but still do not prefer it. ...

It is a bit of a burden being the thirteenth best looking 40B rider in the club.

Re: Getting Started

Yes, this week's club night is exactly what I need! I was led to understand that the riders are split into sub-groups according to skill level every night: is this the deal? Yes, we generally divide into Relaxed, Moderate, and Advanced. The biggest difference between relaxed and moderate is the att...

Re: Forking Seals!

Most common aggravant is dirt that dries on the chrome after a ride and then strokes into the seal on the next. Clean the forks religiously after every outing. Second thought is worn bushings will allow excessive pressure on the seals. Third suggestion is use a Seal Saver http://sealmate.net/ at lea...
