Spring do give some bottoming control... Landing a jump ( springs 1%, dampening 99% ) Braking into turns with braking bumps ( springs 30%, dampening 70% )

Out of the gate, I'd take the second left straight across the finish line and then run the entire track. Serious though, 50 yard line seats look good, . endzone seats, might want to go home and watch it on TV.

The shocks, not the springs. Meaning the shock oil weight and the valves in the forks/shock keep you from bottoming out. Buy the strongest spring made for your bike, install them but leave the oil out and you not only will bottom out on the landings, ... more »

Springs do not keep you from bottoming out.

Read my post above about Lap By Position. Other than my one complaint, It does everything.

I'll shoot in my experience as well... I use a Garmin 920XT which does not have a wrist based HR monitor, I have to use the chest strap. All the reviews I have read on any watch with the wrist based HR was its inaccuracy. so don't even try that. Mine ... more »

One good thing about this thread... there was a Blazing Saddles reference. Nothing else really stood out.

I don't think that engine can be vertical... oil lubing the top pistons would not get out, sideways pistons like VW and BMW motorcycles have been around forever. I didn't notice how the exhaust was getting out. It looked like it flowed somehow through ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hydraulic Clutch on Honda 10/30/2017 8:36 AM

I rode a friend's Husky and liked the hydro clutch feel over my '16 Honda 450. I was thinking about mounting a hydro setup on mine but since the cable is pull and the hydro is push, I was just going to make a piece to bolt/weld to the arm where the cable ... more »

Triple Crown format... I don't think I'll like it.

I have gone to Moab each spring for a few years now. 2 years MTB and jeep, last year MTB and dirtbikes. Riding was a blast and can hardly wait for next year. We did the Slickrock trail on both the MTB and motorcycles. It was okay. If you're doing motorcycle ... more »

It will never act like your car's dry clutch no matter what oil or non grooved clutch basket flat discs and plates. All those plates and discs with oil sticking them together, you'll never be able to push it in gear with the clutch pulled. Just part ... more »

You are all awesome, thanks for the advise. I figured riding was the best thing to get me into shape. when I raced back in my 20's, I never went to the gym or trained specifically, I just rode all the time. ( I was younger also ) I'm thinking I'll start ... more »
