I think separate threads for each event will help for making plans/discussion about the event/pixors after the event. Plus it keeps the clutter out of the main thread so that can be for general questions and such.

I cut down my spare set of bars this weekend and found out that my radiator is bent worse than I thought, lol. I'm looking forward to this race. I kind of want to watch the "jeep" racing.

Radiator and guards have been bent back to near oem locations, new plastics have been added to replace the cracked ones, and the bars and barkbusters have been cut down to 31ish inches total. Hopefully I can manage a few less dirt naps this time, lol.

Of course (says the guy who can hit the only tree in a several acre field). Sounds like Thomas has picked up the pace. Good luck!

I want to get into doing more dirt and this looks like fun. I plan to sell my street bike and get a dirt bike. Eventually I would like to try this out. I already have a CRF450R supermoto so I want to get another CRF450. For something like this is the X better than the R? I also plan to hit the occasional motorcross track but plan to do mostly trail riding and trying out the hare scrambles.


Favorite thing on my bike: the miles I put on it

That was Dodge in the parking lot of Wicomico. I try to go for multiple trees when I wreck.

Try them all. Figure out what you like the best. I'm too freaking fat for MX. I fly like a turkey and land poorly at best. So woods riding fits my lack of skill the best.

MX versus woods - very different suspension setups

I found the 250x to be very easy to go fast on. You might not want a 450 in the woods.

Concur. In the woods more power can be a detriment. Especially if you are riding all day. I liked my wr450. But at the end of the day that bike really sucked to have to pick up.

And wear leathers in the woods. I'm not sure if that's awesome or stupid or where to draw the line.
