BTT. Arriving on 4/21 for the week. Dirt bike Utopia. Anyone up for it? All 125's this trip. My kid tried to kill himself on my 250 and now is humble as pie willing to listen to the old man and stick to the tiddler! ;D

Without a doubt. If they pull this off and do what they say not only would it be a big venue but also a great place for training while waiting for the first races up North. And a local riding spot for us.

Results are in. It was cold and I am old. 46 degrees while cruising on the fast trails is a little chilly. We waited till afternoon to do the GP track (high speed). Campfire weather was perfect as was the drinkin weather. ;D. Saw the same amount of two strokes as last year. A friends kids blew up his KX250F (due to lack of maintenance). Of course I will report the damage and cost to rebuild. May not be too bad because it just lost power, compression and quit. No boom, no crunch, and still has a little compression. Funny thing was even though they were short one bike neither dad nor son took up an offer to use one of our 2 strokes. Anyway since they ran a bulldozer blade on all the hill climbs I decided to make my own runs between the trees. Damn there are a lot of hidden roots under the leaves. I hit a couple of trees right at the top and now have a permanent scar on the 125 fork leg. Did make it up two times though. My 14YO son spent the whole trip riding my 250. It wore him out and he had his own issue with a tree on the last day due to fatigue. Wants his 125 next time. I love it when a plan comes together. I will revive this thread as the spring break trip approaches.

117 miles to go tomorrow. Weather is now in our favor. Friday will be set up camp, tires & brakes, Gather Firewood, Bonfire, and of course hitting the D-town Tiki bar. Signing off until it's over. Too much fun to be tapping a keyboard.  Kids have glamis and 199 vid's on now. Love my little motor heads. Gotta go!

In all my years one of my most painful get offs was a quick wash out on the main track. Front end just went away braking hard for a wide turn. Some good guys in the campsite next to us loaded us up as I was done ( 2T or 4T MX guys are the best). We ride at a place in Ocala FL named Hardrock and trust me, that dirt is the same as D-town.MX 4 is like a rock but is perfect for some fun laps. GP is fast and also like rock. They do have some real nice dirt on the Bomber track though. Anyway I will raise a glass (more like a red party cup) for TSM while there and count the two strokes and trade stories. Just like last time.

We get in Friday around noon. Plan was to ride Saturday but may have to settle for a half day on Friday, Rain in the forecast. Sunday and Monday look good. Bikes are perfectly clean waiting to turn orange (not KTM, Georgia clay).

Dude, You know how I feel about the 450's ><img src=" title="Angry" class="smiley">. Bring that RM out! I would love to see and maybe if its OK ride it. After my Indian 100 and Honda MT125 my first real MX bike was a 78 RM100. It had long stroke CR250 forks on it and some local pro also welded new shock mounts on the swing arm to jack up the back. Crude but was awesome back in the day. Damn, I'm as old as the dirt under my fender. Drink like a top pro though. Campsite 2 behind the lodge. I'm the old fat guy, easy to spot. ;D

2 weeks away now. 377, borrow a bike. Hope the house turns out nice. Anyone else, just show up at the tiki bar and share a drink.

Just revived the golf cart batteries and got most of the gas gunk out of the wife's 4 wheeler carb. KX 85 gets chain and sprockets. YZ 250 and 125 get new rear tires. New air filters for all. Some numbers on the 125 and we are all set (that is if everything is OK with the camper which has not been touched since spring break). I have to get it all ready since I will be away most of November working in Wisconsin. At least GA will seem warm when I get there! Anyone going?

Check out I did find a news article on it. If so it would become a top winter training site and great place for us as we do not ride the summer season.

I'm not one to abuse the clutch, but some things need to be punished! Like my RM for example, as soon as that thing is going I'll be thrashing it for all the money and misery it's put me through  ;D

Abuse and use are 2 different things. A 125 clutch properly used needs several changes over a racing season. Since I only play ride these days they last longer but I am on my first replacement. Two things make power on a two stroke. The piston and the clutch (500's excluded). Show that RM some love and it will love you back, even if it's tough love.

Considering the level of competition in the NESC and 338 itself which I raced only once I applaude your results. Not easy. Nice.

Forget about pistons. I had stacks and stacks of abused clutch plates in the 80's I was proud to own and paid for. See my other response to a 125 thread. Bad clutch. Clutch must be punished :P.
