Geneseo Dual Sport tomorrow & Enduro Sunday

Who is in? It should be a blast. Perfect fall weather ripping through the woods.

Next one is Muddobers in two weeks, then the Cahokia (nr St. Louis) a week later and then the final Enduro Riders in Goshen first Sunday in Nov.

Then switch to ice mode!!

I'll be at the doolsport tomorrow am. We're gonna try to do two loops, something around 40 miles each.

Only 3 in our group right now, we could handle one more. I'll be arriving in a yellow as fuck Chevy van.

Orange ktm #500

Well it was a pretty tough enduro. The hills were challenging and I messed up the first muddy ditch crossing. Was in there 5-10 min. Had a couple of momentous falls where you come off the high side down the hill and end up 20-30' from the bike. Generally its something stupid where you hit a stump @ the wrong time & you loose control. No injuries but right elbow is painful - good thing I was wearing hockey pads.

Bike ran well - I reduced the rear shock pre-load which helped a lot. Need to learn to wheeley the bike on command. A endurocross section caused some issues. The yz250 surges when I roll off the throttle. Not sure what's going on. The main & pilot jets are smaller than stock by a couple of sizes but the bike seems to be rich??? The previous owner probably used a different needle or he put it in a different position. It doesn't seem to want to idle...
