Re: Fuel-Injected KTM Two-Strokes Coming in '18

I'd be most interested to know how the bottom end get lubricated without the oil in the fuel?

Re: Helmet design - fyi

For the most part, helmets are not designed to protect from an impact to the very top of the helmet, like we get from trees. Most of those high tech designs you referenced are meant to minimize rotational forces and won't do a thing to prevent top impacts. One problem I see with a few helmets is the...

Re: Parking at Fisher East (5K)

A group of us were parked on the west side last night. A CO drove by without stopping. Perhaps there is more to this story. Garrett I don't doubt this for a second. Maybe it was a CO who was in a pissy mood. However he certainly felt secure in handing out those tickets, which means he believes it i...

Re: Parking at Fisher East (5K)

Thats what I was wondering about. I've seen people parking there for the few years I've been riding McLean. There are no signs. Yet suddenly the COs are handing out tickets? Doesn't make any sense.

Parking at Fisher East (5K)

Heard from a friend that a CO came charging into the parking area to the west of the road at 5K today and handed out violation tickets to everyone parked on that side of the road. This is the first I have ever heard of parking/staging not being allowed in that area. There are no signs (at least not ...

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

I'm well aware of all the trails and what they offer. Personally I like the obstacle course nature of Area 51 too. However the reality is that clearly a lot of people are having issues with that section because it is becoming braided as people try to avoid the slippery, muddy log matrix, which in t...

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

We rode Area 51 yesterday and really didn't notice any missing logs. However there are a few creating a mess in the section south of the big hill. Logs plus mud equals fru fru riding conditions and trail damage.

Re: Best Race Ever??? (Erzberg 2015)

Redbull TV seems to have lost interest in Hard Enduro the last year or so. They used to do a full hour show on every event and now its hard to find more than 5 minutes on an event.

As much as I'd like to watch Erzberg, aint staying up to 3 am to do it.

I have an auto clutch so I can go over logs. It is more likely someone with a conventional clutch having troubles w log crossings but way too fragile to admit their inabilities. :O

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

I also agree. I think the stallions ones were done by quadders. I have not made it to 51 this year but definately whoever is doing their own selective logging knock it off leave challenging trails challenging. We rode Area 51 couple of weeks ago and I didn't notice any obvious freshly cut logs. Tha...

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

rant on...i notice that a lot of trees on the ground that have been there forever are slowly being chainsawed away. Really changes so many of the trails out there to much easier. i wish whoever is responsible would stop and just become a better rider. i noticed last season and now this season even ...

Yes, stinky, oily 2-strokes can't seem to make it through a ride without puking up a plug. :lol:
