It’s all about seat time. With soccer being cancelled his love for moto has reawakened, and with access to a couple private tracks he’s been riding a ton. He was decent before but something has clicked on in his head. I need to get him some lessons from ... more »

Man today was another off the hook day. We did a lot of prep Friday, and the last 2 days were really good, Wife is pissed - me and the boy have spent most of the last 2 days either prepping or riding. Having a track is a crapload of work but it's worth

2 short vids from this morning. We got rain last night, and it was slick and deep in places. A couple of the young guys went out to play. I'm too old for that so just watched. Next weekend should be very good tho. https://youtu.be/ISn-oDX25Vc https://youtu.be/r76PI7JiwwU ... more »

Yeah we were surprised that it was so deep. Only hit a few rocks and a couple areas of gravel but mostly dirt and clay. It will take a few years and lots of wood chips to loam it up. If the owner works at it, in 5 years it will be the best track in the ... more »

A few from today. If we don't get too much rain tonight we will ride it for the first time tomorrow. I'm expecting a 2:30-3 minute lap time. It's a really big track, maybe 1.5 miles total. It would have been even bigger if we'd had another weekend with

Check the cap too. One guy had a small rock stuck in there.

A couple recent issues like this turned out to be clogged vent for the fuel cap. Make sure it has no dirt in it anywhere. Hammer

This is dozer weekend. Excavator last weekend. This is a home track but it is massive with steep terrain. The big hill is a 300 ft climb and makes horsepower hill look wimpy.

It is going to be very fast and flowing. Might be ready for first ... more »

Rider is 145 and the 42-260 is too heavy a rate. Can't get sag set. Thanks!

Fun thread. Chaos and anger and apathy and rage. Popcorn and beer time at Vital. I clean my throttle tube (and body!) every year during annual winter maintenance. A little brake cleaner, some fresh lightweight grease, lube the cables and the housing ... more »

It did come out nice. I didn't do the original build, but I've done most of the work since on prep and the rebuild. I have a really good dozer guy that does the big stuff. The build he is doing now is gonna be unreal. It's back in the hills, super private, ... more »

Kid is growing. 14 years old and needs an 11-12 boot already! Anything decent used out there? 11.5 optimal. He's in my old SG10s at 10.5 but they are a tight fit and run small anyway. Thanks! Hammer

West of Portland Oregon about 25 miles. Yeah, there's some steep stuff to work with. I'll update it over the summer. Hope to have it done enough to ride in a couple weeks.

So it turns out it is a 40 acre place, and it has some really serious terrain to work with. Like Horsepower Hill or Mt. St. Helens serious. A 10 acre bowl with steep slopes around it is the basis for the track. Build started on Friday. I'll see about

I read someone that indicated the Ohlins are too flexy with the steel chassis. He felt that they'd been designed with an alu chassis in mind, not steel, so the flex was setup differently. So he preferred to stay with the WP tubes and convert as that ... more »
