    Contributes to keeping traffic flow smooth - Not that you'd know what I mean, living where you do!

    Damn, This thread actually has some really good pointers, Cheers WT.

    Thanks WT, some great info. It's seems I'm gonna have to train myself to cover and use the rear brake if I want to proceed much further.

    Wicked site too, some mean pics in their gallery and alot of good info for a site so young!

    Ring me and I'll head out with you. Could video me, you & whoever else attempting to do some and provide some comic relief.

    Sounds like i need to get the OLD KDX ('83 vintage) going again. Used to be alright on it till i looped it, in 3rd, as i was falling off the back, the throttle got opened harder. Not a pretty landing
    Didnt try too many after that

    Great info, i havent had any problems gettin the front up, just keeping it there. Been to scared to use the clutch.
