Who else rides dirty bikes?

Got back into riding this past winter/spring and curious to who else rides. Doing my first enduro at the end of the month and then another one next month here in MN. Cheap thrill compared to rally and a helluva workout haha!

I use to race in B-class enduro for a few years. This is the first season i havent raced in about 3 years due to me going in the military.



Theres a picture of my bike. Im thinking about trading it here soon for some sort of rally car, but I havent made up my mind on that one yet.

Have you tried revving it to 11,000 RPM yet? You have to make sure to rev those things to 11,000 RPM.

The motor is pretty rusty, it doesn't really want to spin that fast, especially for long periods of time. Damn thing keeps overheating and running out of coolant.

Have you tried greasing up the hinges? Just slather it up in some grease and ride it like a 50 cent hooker.

I recently picked up an old chinese 250cc bike, it's about 3/4" size of a a WR250, after years of not riding much.

it's not as horrible as I first thought it would be, but considering it cost less than one rally tyre the bang for buck is pretty high.

We ride single track in the forests near home(also where some rallys are held) and it's been great to get some fitness back to help my driving.

One day I'll get a good one but with a few tweaks this will do for a while.

Bikes are great, but it hurts more when you have a big "off".....this was six weeks ago...

At first I thought this was moto onboard at Pikes Peak. It was not. Weird concept I suppose.

I don't have any good after pictures, but there's a new plate and 6 screws holding things together. Mobility is coming back, just a lot slower than I thought it would, getting old I guess...
