    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    After a 66 mile gravel ride this weekend I tore down the drive train. The chainring was missing a couple teeth and the rest of the narrow wide ring was all very narrow. Might explain dropping the chain many times during the ride. Since the BB was also very gritty and the crankset was described as vintage by the chainring manufacturer, I decided to replace the whole crankset. New SRAM GX 30tooth on its way.

    bike 07 DRZ400

    False news. Some Euro dealer listed the CRF250L hp on the CRF450L. Honda says in the 40s, they won't list hp specs on a dirt bike. The DRZ is basically unchanged since early 2000s. The good news is OEM and aftermarket parts are easy to find. The bad news is its heavy and/or underpowered compared to the more premium dual sports. However it is inexpensive and easy to work on. Justin you should ride it. There are some great places to ride a dual sport near you. It alot of fun exploring the back roads in that area. That price is barely a down payment on a KTM or CRF450.

    LOL, if I bought new I was buying a Stache, but reviews are pretty good on the Fuze and this one came up for a great price. Gotta love guys who go through new bikes every year or 2. They make for some great deals Bicycles or motorcycles.

    Trans-am trail du sport

    The TAT is fairly challenging on a motorcycle that will be really tough, though probably not as bad as the Tour Divide Water in the west will be an issue. I know there are stretches which require a 200 mile range for fuel out there. As long as they don't hit mud in Oklahoma or snow in the mountain passes they should be OK. I think OK will be brutal on a bicycle. I currently plan to ride the western half of the TAT next year,

    Shinko 244 in the front and Shinko 700 on the rear. I set them both up tubeless. I had no problem with the street tires tubeless on these rims but they were a better fit for the width of the rim. We shall see this week on the Shinkos

    That's what the bike has. I swapped the Pilot Power RS tires, for something hopefully a little more off road worthy. 😀 If I find myself doing enough off road I will look for some 21/18 wheels. Before the change.

    Adventure ready? Installed my skid plate and 17" knobbie tires in addition to the USB and heated gear ports I added over the weekend. Hope to take dirt roads down to WNF near Marietta on Thursday and camp the night. I was surprised how much the knobbies changed the look of the bike. Hopefully they are equally effective at changing the capabilities.

    This is my gravel machine (Pilot Power RS). Stand up, let the bike move beneath you and lean the bike into the turn, you will be fine.

    Nice! That storm seemed to come out of nowhere. Beautiful afternoon with calm winds then blowing and windy a few minutes later. I like the Salsa Cowbell for shallow drop bars. They were on my Warbird before the crash now on my Crosscheck.

    Need to meet some fellow riders

    That Duc is not really a SM (too big and heavy) but still is a sweet looking vehicle. Welcome to the site Jade

    4th annual NEO driveway shitshow

    I hope to make it. Weather doesn't look too bad, though I will probably get out the heated gloves.

    OMRL Round 1 this weekend

    Agree, Circleville is a better deal ... if you are close. I can ride to PIRC in just over an hour so that works out to a better value than a 3 hour freeway slog for me

    OMRL Round 1 this weekend

    Looks like they have a round at Adkins and PIRC which are much closer. I have been on the PIRC kart track with my sumo. Lots of fun. Would be better with others, the place was deserted. But $30 to run as much as you want from 8-12 on the weekend seems like a good deal to me.
