Im happy to see HD making something other than cruiser style bikes. I hope it works for them
Agreed. I also like they are trying electric mountain bike things. Not sure if any of it will be successful but I wish them the best.

Re: Granogue MAVT Nov 3 2019

Ken, you would not have ridden this event. Made that steeper one in MD this year look like child's play. The loop wasn't bad to ride though, just a couple sections. Mike, didn't realize you didn't ride. How did Sawyer do? Walking all those sections in the morning was hard work. I busted my knee walk...

Re: Granogue MAVT Nov 3 2019

Had a great time other than forgetting to turn the petcock on in the morning and running the bowl dry. Was a BUGGER to restart and wore me out before we even got going. The loop was huge. Some sections had a LOT of elevation change. I simply can't bring myself to climb a super steep hill, lean the b...

Re: Dirty Santa 2019

Hmmm, website says the enduro loop is 30mi. 15 is pretty short.
BTW, Dec 1 is a Sunday. Your first post says Saturday.

Re: Granogue MAVT Nov 3 2019

Anybody can ride the 4 line. You'll still put your feet down a lot at first until you learn tight turning and being able to remember where to go :) I started on line 3 because it's more fun. I get terrible scores but don't care (though I'm slowly getting better.) It has helped my riding a ton.

Re: Granogue MAVT Nov 3 2019

AAI, I'm planning on being there. You're welcome to ride one of my Betas. They and the 2016 Sherco are for sale too. :thumbup: Need to sell two of the three. If parking is an issue per Boom Boom we can probably meet near 95 somewhere and carpool (I havent mapped it from Indian Head to know if that's...

Re: DS Ride 10/14 Michaux

Typical dyno run says nothing about anything other than WOT. Almost no one (except the factory) does dyno pulls at 1/16 or 1/8 throttle. Adjusting all the part throttle maps/jetting is where great throttle response comes from. The XC/XCW should have this much more correctly dialed in from the factor...
