Very nice. Personally I am a fan that you left the rear number plates alone and not cutting them. Makes the bike more symmetrical to my ocd self.

Sorry for your loss. Losing a dog is one of the hardest things to go through. We lost our boxer 2 years ago and it was total heart break. You can tell how happy she was in those pictures tho, great job giving her a loving home.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It looks like right now we will most likely use a VA loan. I believe instead of PMI they charge a fee (I’ve heard 1-2% maybe?) instead of the PMI but I’m not positive on that.

I would add to the riding school or a training session now while you are new! Bad form/riding habits are harder to break. At work whenever we had weapons training, the people who had never shot a gun before often qualified easily because they didn’t ... more »

Thanks! That’s what I was looking for. Unfortunately work doesn’t cover any of that but I have a small amount of control over how long we stay, for example I could delay a promotion for a year that would get us close to 4 years there if it really comes ... more »

Added reply in a thread First enduro race, any advice? 1/20/2020 12:27 PM

The first 2hr enduro I did I tried to get a good start and “sprint away”. What a terrible idea that was. I was smoked after about 30 minutes in and spent a long time trying to recover. The next two races I got decent starts and then just settled into ... more »

Added reply in a thread New bike debate post, 250sx or 350sxf? 1/5/2020 1:59 PM

I had at one point owned a 2014 250sx and a 2017 350sxf. The 350 was so easy to ride faster and it was much smoother and controlled. The 250sx was the older model and chassis and also non counterbalanced so I preferred the 350 by a slight margin. Both ... more »

If it were me, I would keep the two stroke. Even if I had to sell the 4 stroke and have to ride for another year to save up for a new bike, I’d still have the CR. I say this because I have unfortunately sold bikes that I regret. Especially since it looks ... more »
