Great ride, great vid Nick!

What is the nearest large town to where you were? Trying to get Big Bear oriented. Most of my Cali days were at Army training posts Fort Ord & Camp Roberts in '61.
I think you were having more fun than we were!

Glad you're diggin' the Pro Taper ATV Hi bars, I've used these on my last 5 bikes...they are perfect for me. Ditto the ProGrip 714s! Few vibrations with those puppies.

What suspension setup do you have? Go faster, go smoother, crash less...!

What was that goober taking off other guys' bikes, that you were hot about?
Wish I'd been there, we could have tuned him up...maybe a carrot up his tail pipe!

Thanks, Darth!

Lucerne Valley/Johnson Valley to the North and Yucaipa to the South. San Bernardino to the West, Yucca Valley to the East.

It’s possible that a drop or two of more fun was had, haha.

Loving the bars! As soon as these pillow top grips wear out I’m headed back for the ProGrip!

I went with the upgrade kit that ProCycle offers along with a new rear spring. I’d say it’s set up for a little of all of the above! What a difference, man! can’t wait to get it out in the open desert!

Not sure of the whole story but I noticed his tags were scratched off. He said someone ripped them off! Unreal.

Yeah, Nick...I went with the ProCycle suspension, too. Spendy yes, but a lot of bang for the buck at the same time.
Before I retired I shopped at the Ohlin Shock Shop and it was magic, but the RaceTech goodies are good too, and plenty good enough for our funky little T-Dubs!
And s-o-o-o much better than OE.

I broke my own rule last week and ordered a set of these other ProGrips...


Rather than my beloved ProGrip 714s...


I ran those "finger grip" jobbies on my MZ "Black Panther" 660 SuperMoto and really liked them.
I have small hands and these are smaller OD...add the finger grooves and it made for a firm, tight grip. Plus, they are pretty sticky and very comfortable. Perfect for that wheelie-stoppie-sliding little mo-fo!
The T-Dub is no SM bike so I can swap back to the 714s if need be.

Great looking place to ride with a motorcycle group. This past week I rode my stock suspension TW and really missed the beefier suspension on my trail TW. TW running good now? You replaced the carb right? Looking forward to more! :icon_thumleft::headbang:

It really does make a world of difference!

Correct. Carb has been replaced and seems like all systems are go!
