Re: Greenbriar Enduro - Sun March 11, 2018

What is the story behind the Red White and Blue KTM 250? I never saw one like that before....

Re: 2018 (and final) Michaux DS Ride- Aug 19th

I got a license plate for my KDX by registering it in Vermont. I guess insurance is just a phone call away. I have a functioning headlight and tail light.
Anything else I would need?

Re: 2018 (and final) Michaux DS Ride- Aug 19th

Can you explain more about what to expect at the Michaux? How many total miles (and if long, do they have a fuel resupply point?)
How many pavement miles, vs fire-road vs single track might one expect?

Re: 2018 Rides/events/etc

Can the April 29th Deleware Enduro be added to the list? I might try that race as my first, and wondering if any other DAMN riders are going.

Re: Handlebars

Gots-a-sol: The expensive fat bar combo I was talking about would be 'doing it right' - with those BRP billet mounts for $115 (they come in several heights and have the solid top connecting brace which is very good for the KDX) along with the ProTaper Evo bars $85. That would be the mack daddy setup...

Re: Handlebars

I definitely need more seat time. But won't I be able to ride longer if the bar setup was more comfortable? Meaning.... would I get less hand buzz/fatigue with my noob death grip on great bars compared to my same noob death grip on cheap bars while I learn? If its not much difference, I can keep goi...

Re: Handlebars

Last year I replaced stock steel bars with aluminum 7/8" Tag X5 bars (they were $25 on sale). Was a hassle getting the acerbis hand guards moved over, but I eventually managed. Seems to me from an engineering standpoint that these fat-style handlebars without crossbars would have even less vibration...

Re: Handlebars

"Good" aluminum bars to reduce vibration come in both 7/8" and 1-1/8". Or should I only be looking at 1-1/8" bars without crossbrace?

Is there something special in the design of BRP clamps to inhibit vibrations, or does that just come from quality manufacturing and beefy mass?
