Where did the few of us left ride this weekend?

I rode at the recently reopened Diablo MX (Sand Hill) with a bunch of other cool people who must have missed the doom memo. Took out the YZ and the RM to get a good comparison for a video I'm planning to make, both bikes were great and I felt good all day. Track was a little deep and challenging in spots, but overall it was good and I'm sure they'll get the prep dialed in over time. Got to talk vans with some guys as well since I'll be in the market soon. Anyone else twist some throttle?

Well since im rebuilding my kx , i think im gonna buy a brand new yz 250 next week ... and then maybe i can get out to the track ....

Hoping to make the hike down to Henderson , NC rode that track alot and its about the best that i have close to me ... budds creek is comparable distance . i have a local practice track but ive ridden it for 15+ years looking for something new .. and theres anoth District 13 track , south fork ... but the vibes there are awful now , and the crowd has really died down in the motocross industry here in virginia it seems like ... or maybe im out of the loop.

But to answer your question sadly i havent been able to twist the throttle in a while and it's killing me ...

I'm going to Pala in the morning with my used 250f that I just bought. It is most likely a ticking time bomb because I read that here on vital.

I didn't ride, but I signed paperwork for our new house on 2 acres. Not huge by any means, but big enough for a mini bike track to be the first upgrade for my 5yr old twins... Brraaapppp!!!!

Last race didn't go so well, so I'm down for a while. Body feels about the same as my clutch master cylinder.

I rode and worked on my single track loop. Headed out in a few minutes with a chainsaw and machete.

I rode Saturday and was hoping to keep it a secret because of my lack of speed, but since you are calling all the non-posters out ...

I greased the linkage on the KX 250 this weekend.... does that count for anything?

Still debating doing the piston and rings since its half ripped apart already... I can save on the personal labor charge tongue

I cannot speak for the rest of the U.S but in North Carolina & Virginia MX is doing very well. Tracks have great turn outs for races and practice days are doing very good. Even surprisingly so.

Was going to race the summer series but, you know, Smash Mouth was in town on Saturday

Sand mountain Saturday. Not very many people. Was supposed to rain that day. Track was wet but still had a blast.

Spent all day Saturday building some little kickers and ruts around the farm, spent all day Sunday riding, going to spend all day today complaining how sore/slow I am.

Got out for an open practice yesterday. Had every intention of breaking in the FC450 but the track prep was just horrible so I just rode the smoker. Photo

That looks like heaven on Earth to me....

To get back on topic... I didn't hit a track this weekend but did put about 300 on my adventure bike... Lots of empty 2 lane paved roads plus plenty of gravel roading...
