Of course the weather can be unpredictable with wind, rain and yes, even snow! The closest big dunes for you might be Glamis, and if you haven't been I would highly recommend it. Get a few friends and make a trip of it, you'll be hooked. It's coming to be riding weather there now. I've been twice and will maybe be back for Presidents week next year.

Now, for San Antonio Texas, last I was there on the River Walk, the best French fries I've ever had were at the first restaurant closest to the Alamo. The logo colors were red, white and blue.

*west!

I'll be spending some time in SA soon, that sounds like my kind of treasure hunt! I've got a soft spot for all things fried.

Though I may shake my fist at them again tomorrow, tonight I will bow my head and offer these vulcanized tires as tribute. I will cut the night with the sound of wide open throttle...and no matter what....If I am destined for Valhalla....I will enter as a man who did not lift. - Speed Demons prayer to the Gods of Chaos.

Oh, with a name like Alamo I thought you were already there. The place may be different now, but still lots to do on the River Walk. Take the boat tour, then walk any place you want to see. The Alamo is walking distance, most all the tourist stuff is walking distance, and not just on the river.

I knew West, lol.

Changed the clutch and clutch cable on my motorcycle today and found that I am apparently a tour guide that provides food on a back road ride that would make Mr. Rossi himself proud(not really). I hope them little little furry bastard fell off and slid to their death. Assholes.

This will be a dirtbike jump but thought yall might get a kick out of it. Dirt, especially good dirt, commands a time premium out here. When I build jumps, I use rocks layed up in concentric tiers to a.) keep the powdery stuff from washing out under compression and b.) use the least amount of the good stuff as possible (because it has to be brought, from where ever it is, to where ever I need it). That this is built on a little peninsula, the bigger the tier 1 stones, the more jump face I have ultimately, as each concentric ring decreases the amount of ramp surface. I did try to flip, drag and slide a few of these bad boys but...apparently I'm not as strong as a horse. My wife and Red made pretty short work of some stones that are easily clocking 450+ lbs.

This gap goes left to right in the first pic, it's about 25 feet over the wash, and the landing will be about 6 feet up from the lip.....It's looking like I'll be renting a machine in the nearish future to try and cut down the build time, which means, there's a Raptor gap over a separate wash coming to.

In the second pic you can see part of the approach, and it flows right to left.

This place is a play ground....everywhere I look there's another beautiful jump. At the moment there are 4 going up simultaneously, all in the 20-40 foot range, all over different parts of this wash and all either jumping down into, or out of. I've definitely got a thing for landings and take offs being in different planes. Depending on how the machine work goes (just don't know how well the machine is gonna do in this ground, because....I've never done any of this before hah!) 2 will be dual purpose. I'll be flying the Husky and the Raptor over'em. The other 2, are too narrow on approach to get the Rappy on.

I am currently chronicling my daily dirt bike/quad adventures on IG - @ danger.spike - for any that might want to follow along. The goal has become explicitly clear: I will compete in the X Games or die trying (Real Moto 2024). Either way, it's gonna be a helluva ride, because on my journey to that goal, I will do some things on both dirt bikes and quads that haven't ever been attempted (prolly for good reason, I hear ya ) , some may not have even been thought of yet (can't change who I am, I denied it for a long time, but the moment I got my Raptor unloaded into that ditch, something changed. The last year of my life has been the most incredible yet, and there's no turning back.)

Hope everyone is staying safe out there.

Just two quick questions.

Which K&N air filter is best for rappy?
Does anyone know P/N of that bolt that holds clutch lever? Mine got stripped and I made a temporary fix to solve the problem. 6 months later temporary fix is still not fixed.

Not so quick answers.

First, let me say that K&N brand air filters have been getting a bad reputation that they pass fine dirt. Some filters are listed as K&N "style" and have more cotton gauze layers.

Second, aftermarket filters will not fit as a replacement to the factory filter. A metal bracket "must" be used as a adapter. It's best to buy the filter, adapter and usually a Outerwear style sock, as a kit (from ebay?).

The K&N "brand" system has a small diameter adaptor and doesn't perform well. Avoid that one.

If you want to keep your airbox, with or without lid then look for a "Pro Design" system. About $105 USD shipped.

If you don't need any airbox, the best is "FCI" system. About $215 USD

If you need a airbox but no lid available, best is"FCI w-box" About $293 USD

This is where I get all my OEM bits, and thus far, it's all been bang on. Good luck!

Thanks dez. I'll keep the airbox. I ride trails and when I'm on road there is always a possibility to get cought by rain so I need something to keep the water away from the filter. My question is is the difference between pro design and fci with airbox really worth nearly 200$? How much of an improvement can I expect over the stock filter?

Looks like your motor is stock? If that's all you are doing to it, I feel the Pro Design would be fine for you. Looking at your sig, by doing that you would complete your "Big 3" set up. I had that set up prior to installing the FCI on mine and I run Pro Design on my wife's, no complaints with either.
