Always said I'd lose my license if....

...I got another SuMo set up. Driving around Oaktown and seeing guys on quads and dirtbikes railing through town, past cops etc with no consequences made me reconsider. $800 for the whole set up (caliper bracket, shorter chain, oversize rotor, wheels and tires) I figured I could take the chance

Just a little more grip than the dirt stuff...gonna' take a few rides to get used to it. Really easy to do stoppies though, doing them with the 21" front has slowly rotated my tire a hair

Took about 2 hrs to swap, next time it will be about 1 hour. With the fires closing all the offroad action this may hold me over until the rains

Just ride on sidewalks, do wheelies and run from the law and you won't get any tickets

Congrats.

I was going to say the same thing but didn't.

With the forests closed down and all the smoke up North, I figured we could join the crowd and ride our dirt bikes in SF. There are plenty of parks and stairs etc. to have fun on. As long as you don't stop you are ok. Strange right! Stop and get a ticket, run like hell, and they won't chase you.

Wheelie for safety!!!

Now I have to look around for some good urban assault items; long stairs, little used pedestrian paths....just kidding. I have jumped a median or two in my day though....
