I personally like this idea of "undisclosed location", but Jeff Stanton gave away the biggest clue, it took him 2 hours to drive there. So, put a dot in Sherwood Michigan, draw a 2 hour circumference circle, and look all night long on Google Earth and ... more »

My doctor said to not run with my knees. My PA said that my knees (Zimmer) should last 30 years, 20 if I run as they will wear out . If I was looking at new knees in 10-20, then anything you read here Ping will be laughable at that time. If it was a

I unfortunately know and have spoken to people that have had issues, even as far as having to have another doctor remove and change out a poorly installed knee a year after it was installed. This is still not a slam dunk operation. That said, these knee ... more »

Be aware there are many factors, and no matter how much homework you do, the outcome is never guaranteed. I had my left leg done in December 2016, and the right should have been done two weeks after the first operation, but due to insurance issues, it

During my 2 week furlough, I have been back at trying to decide which of the three (Sprinter/Transit/Promaster) I should look at for bike hauler. At this point I am thinking used, second vehicle, weekender type of usage. The two builds that appeal to ... more »

Good cheap advice. I'd tighten the swingarm bolt first though. That is the only mount that has bearings involved and I assume that would line up best if tighten first. Other theories welcome.

So, I went to Paul @ RG3 in NJ for the KYB Factory SSS spring conversion and DLC coating on my lower legs of my 2019 FC 350. Incredible would be one word I would use to describe the transformation. With the stock forks I was not totally unsatisfied as ... more »

If Westchester County NY, 10 miles North of NYC, is New England, then sure.

Here is a local build, a Mini HL500, HL200. I have been looking for the link to this build as it was well documented. Hopefully soon.

The KYB kit, installed by RG3 valved to my spec is about $2100.00. Supposedly the kit should be able to be removed and installed on the next bike if it has AER forks. I could care less about the ROI, as long as the forks work as good as my Yamahas. Of ... more »

I was very lucky, we had a fellow racer who was a welder/fab guy by trade who loved to build XR 200 builds. He felt the RM was not that bad. He also built Husky/Ossa/Montesa pre-75 bikes for others so we could race the Pre-75 class at ACR events (www.acrmx.com). ... more »

Do not give the XR 200 the boot just yet. I have one in a 1980 RM 125 frame. Hi comp piston, mid range cam and oversized exhaust and it is more fun than most of my bikes. The 200 engine is easy to find over here and since you should be building back ... more »

I am having RG3 in NJ install the KYB kit, from KYB this month. I fine tuned the forks on my 2019 Husqvarna FC350 all last year. They worked OK. I can even say, pretty darn good. But my 2012 YZ 125 stock blown out forks are worlds better. I have to say ... more »

As a skier and mtb rider, I can tell you that going big is not a measure of skill. Any monkey can huck off the biggest obstacle.
