The new rear tire has 'nuff traction.

Actually nevermind...just scooch a little onto the passenger seat, cover the rear brake and clutch her up in 1st

chain was hella loose...I need to carry a 27mm or 15/16" socket on the bike to do adjustments when I'm out and about...

Today I succumbed to the "Target effect" and filled my basket with too many items....



She handled all of it...

I did the clutch up in 2nd on my DR. It comes up alright but since I'm not used to it I would back off the throttle and down she goes right away. I need to condition my right wrist to control my self preservation instinct and keep that throttle open! Just have to remember to cover the rear brake. I don't want to end up like so many You Tube heros that loop their bikes!

Thumper 650 have the torque to loft up all day!

The XR650L was so thumpy I had a tough time keeping it down...way more fun than a Vstrom wheelie

I have to say that although I believe you, I've seen the videos also, I still had to try harder than I thought.  Let's just say the front end would not come up unless I meant for it to come up!  LOL!  I needed to time it correctly:  clutch release, throttle up, and pull the front end, all at the right time!  You made it look easy.

Looping happens FAST!  Wait for it at 0.37 seconds....

LOL...you are correct, that happened quick!

It definitely takes quite a bit of practice, balance, and luck...and you can still go down! I would only venture to hope that covering the rear brake and having comfort with slamming it while feeling like you're falling off the bike is the only protection...

but I'm no pro...I don't get to BP; I just pop it up and use power to keep it up until I run out of rpm's

the big red pig  :3:

think you'll be ready for some desert/dual sport exploring by this winter?

if we start at the Kramer Junction, we can ride out the husky monument, then loop back up to johannesburg and slab the 45 mins back to KJ
