Three bikes needing to be built or rebiult and you rub it in. Ocotillio was offered as well. I am putting together two CR500's and just starting to take apart the 680 for a total redo. I think I will go shooting tomorrow to take out my frustrations

A little background for some of you new guys......

Any forum gets to the point that you start answering the same questions over and over. What tires to use? How do I start my bike? What jetting? How much horsepower? You get the point... There have been a few threads that were into the 1000's of posts with some guys getting so pissed it was way past funny. It only the internet, you only get out of it what you read into it. It's a silly place that doesn't exsist...

So, every now and then a thread gets started to raz each other about the bikes they have. In truth I think almost all XR650R race guys have had a XR600 and most likely an "L" also. I have had XR50 XR80 XR100 CL125 XL125 XL250 XR350R XR500R (Three of them) XL600 XR600R (two of them) XR650R and a XR680R back when I was younger I made the XL600 as close to a XR600 with a cam, different swing arm, high compression piston, trick suspension just so I could have a plated bike for the street. This is how I found out there was a group of "L" guys that (back then) hung out at the donut shop. They had their duel sport bikes all decked out with bar tassles, cup holders, pads on top of their head to keep their balled spots from getting rubbed and tank pads to keep from chaffing the big beer bellies. They would be doing their office work whaching for cute guys to ride by. Some of these riders would dream of having a real dirt bike and get all wet when I would wheelie by. I new then there where strange riders......those that had "L's" and would sneek into rider camps and try to trick riders into their trailers.......the thing they would try to do to those poor riders can not be talked about.

There is video of a pig doing a tripple jump!!!! It must be an "L"

Bruce, I almost spilled my mocha latte espresso all over my cup holder when I saw the triple jumping "L".:thumbsup:

To back up what BWB63 said, for the guys new to the forum... We all have a good time doing a little poking at each other and what they ride. We are all brothers, dont care which you ride.

Personal attacks and insults will not be tolerated on this forum. Wait awhile and read to try and figure out the strange fellowship we have before posting rashly.

Thanks, and enjoy all there is to be had here!:ride:

Rich.

It is true even I can have a great time with these wacked out, freaks of nature that claim to be able to ride, then show up on a "L" that has to be started with jumper cables from the owners 68 dodge 12' motorhome. No fluid in their forks, add oil to the engine (I think it was three quarts) after each ride. I finaly get through all the smoke and pass them and they keep right up with me the whole time! Another strange thing is they use six gallons of fuel a day to do 200 miles of riding and then drink six gallons of beer to keep things even. Makes for great stories around the camp fire. I am looking forward to the next Pigfest ride I get to be apart of. Now that I know they are semi safe to be around I can bring the whole family:thumbsup:

They do all the cool stuff I like:
Shooting, blowing things up, reloading, riding........but, they can do it after 12 beers! I have a hard time sober:cry:

Well I for one am definately not going to post hastily, but I will remind everyone tomorrow is Sunday. So before you head out and ride tomorrow remember:

If you are religious: Say a prayer for the R rider

If your are not: Think a kind thought for the R rider. You are pushing the magic button, in a short while he/she will be out kicking his/her bike.

If you are an "R" rider: Eat all of the Froot Loops before looking for the prize in the box.

Ride Safe Yall! :thumbsup:

my buddy is push'n for me to do BWB's suspension rework but i just can't see giving him any advantage...wut r friends for :bonk:

I would advise against setting suspension up for jumping. I did a USD conversion on my XR400 and the donor forks from a CR250 were set up for moto/jumping. They were terrible on the trail. I weigh 220#, but needed to go down on spring rate and do a re-valve just to get these USD forks to perform for off road riding.
I'll ad another story to bore you with...28 years ago during a 100 mile GP race, this celebrity named Gary Wells (old guys might remember him) was doing super high jumps through-out the course. I passed him on a jump. My bike maybe a foot off the ground and I was trying to keep the bike on the ground for faster time. Well's bike according to spectators was at least 12 foot off the ground. I lost interest in trying to sky the bike after that race.

...BWB has several different setups, not just for hardcore desert & jumping.

To put some of the valving into perspective:

The jumping of 60' tabletops are done with Baja500 valving. I am sure I had the compression adjusters at around 10 out but, nothing outragous. I have an old video of a valved bike with stock spring and something close to the desert race setup clearing 70' on a stepover. The landing wasn't nice but, the bike did it and I was still on the bike when it was over:eek: I don't push the XR650R as a MX jumping bike but, when things go wrong that is what you spent the time and money for the suspension to handle so you can still be on the bike in the end. Biggest problem is flying accross the desert and some once every five year storm washed the road or trail out. Now there is a four foot deap, twenty foot accross and you want the bike to make it in and out....that is why the jumping is brought up. If you like to ride at the edge and something goes wrong, maybe....just maybe.....you setup your suspension right and you will live through it:thumbsup:

Lies...all lies! Now I know for a fact that there was an "L" rider on my XR680R! Some ate the food I brought and I left the gas on the bar-be all night. I will not be slandered with any time spent in Denn's trailer (I do think he got Rich Tracy in there). I was tricked into a big hug from Denn:eek: but, there are no pictures to prove it!:ride:
