Keeping that street legal 2-stroke plated in MO just got quite a bit easier

MO has finally moved to remove the bi-annual vehicle inspection requirement for non-commercial vehicles (pending the remainder of the legislative process). I would assume that if you have a plated 2-stroke now (less than 5 years old), renewing your plates should be a breeze. https://www.kmbc.com/art...

Re: FINALLY! Honda CRF450L

I have a theory on the "KTMs are high-strung, hard to maintain, unreliable machines". I've been doing this "dualsport thing" for about 12 years with a decent amount of zeal. (I launched RideForum.NET on November 30, 2006.) Started with a Kawasaki KLR650, then a Suzuki DR-350, then a Husqvarna TE-45...

Re: Dirt bikes for noobs questions

I've never used a hitch hauler for a bike, but did put around 200 lb on a cargo hauler on a trip to Colorado. I found that running tie downs from the back of the roof rack to the outside corners of the rack eliminated a lot of the "bounce" from being so far behind the back axle. I would think you co...

Re: Lyndon Poskitt goes to Dakar again and wants to bring you more coverage!

I'm really enjoying these videos. He makes a comment on today's episode (9, I believe) about only being allowed 10 minutes per video due to licensing. That's such a shame, because I'd enjoy seeing more of the terrain he's riding. The fact that he's responsible for virtually all of the bike maintenan...

Re: Lyndon Poskitt goes to Dakar again and wants to bring you more coverage!

For those interested, Lyndon is posting Dakar videos on his YouTube channel now:

https://www.youtube.com/user/pyndon/videos

It appears he reached his funding goal, but I'm not sure if/where the live feed is up and active.

Dakar 2018 kickstarter

I think the "Races to Places" video series (on Youtube) has been discussed in prior threads. The rider behind the series (Lyndon Poskitt) is trying to raise money to televise his Dakar 2018 race live. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/62691083/races-to-places-live-dakar-rally-2018-ft-lyndon-po/de...

Looks funner than anything else going on Feb 10th :-D

For $16 there are still seats on the 2nd row available. Plenty of restaurants by the arena if anyone wants to meet up before race time.

You can get the model above with a $50 rebate.

Re: Ingenious Touchscreen Mod for your motorcycle gloves

I finally got around to putting a cell phone mount on my VStrom. What I didn't realize until that time was that starting with the Galaxy S6, touch sensitivity was increased to use gloves. For the most part, I had good luck with mine. Prior to the S6, there was a setting which increased the sensitivi...

Re: Riding Morocco: Chasing the Dakar

"One rider, Christophe Barriere-Varju, has competed in the Dakar Rally four times. The other, Australian fashion model Laura Csortan, has never set a wheel off-road before." This should be interesting. The bike she's on doesn't require a clutch, but it's also a 1000cc adventure bike. I'm with Savage...

Scott, I agree with you 100%. You make excellent points---if Terry did not tell Randy "no alcohol" and his ad does not state this, then nobody is at fault if they are drinking alcohol on the property. Seriously, if the only reason Randy now knows about this "rule" is because I said it's a rule, the...

I've tried my best to not let the alcohol issue bother me, but it's just not working. If Troy hadn't mentioned the prohibition issue, we (a group of adults) would likely be kicked out of the cabin or blacklisted for having a beer or two? At the very least, I'm sure we would have been subject to some...
