Went to Gordens Well this weekend for the annual guys only weekend. Had a freakin blast.

First night out I had to ride the KFX400 which has an Athena kit 434, Hot Cams intake and DRZ base gasket. So we head up to the sand drags and ruun around a couple times, My one buddy is sitting there going :wtf: is wrong with my bike (he has a Alba piped z400), I aks him whats wrong, he says my bike is running like shit, your smoking my, me and my other friend are sitting there laughing, :loser:, no, your bike runs just fine and finally tell I worked the Kawi over. He gives my a :wave-finger:, I :grin_nod:.

First ride on the Rappy with the Barkers :thumbsup:, I'm thinking this is stupid fast. Well, It got windy Friday and there was nothing but fresh sand everywhere and very soft. I buried the front end so many times with the new razors on it that are 7" wheels, should of got the 8" or put my knobbies back on. It was so bad that I rolled her twice, front end would bury on an angle and whoop, roll. Oh well, no damge to me or the bike.

Other then that, get the puppy on a striaght line, not so soft sand or on a big dune and she :metal: :metal: :metal: . This was the response I would get from my firends when I would pull up next them in 3rd or 4th, lean back and goose it with the front end in the air :lolflip:

Well anyways, Thurday and Firday we rode Gordens, Saturday went to Glamis and Sunday rode Buttercup. 3 days, all 3 riding spots. Hell's Ya!

pics to come, was to tired last night to upload any.

Re: Weekend report, first time out with the Barkers.

That sounds awesome!!!

I went for my first ride with the Barkers this weekend! I ended up doing a Poker Run in PA, When we came to the first stop, all the guys behind me told me they were changing positions so that they could all hear the exhaust! :thumbsup: They thought it sounded sick. And the quad in front of me kept turing around through the ride. Afterwards he told me that all he heard was my exhaust and was scared I was going to run him over!

I still havent geared up the front to the 15 tooth, so I found that the front liked to jump around alot more then I would have liked in the woods. Hopefully the 15 ill keep the front down just a little making it easier to manauver...You cant really steer in the woods with the front up.. :grin_nod:

Hey Duane, did you drag race any other bikes with the Raptor? I was wondering how much fast it is now? Sounds like you had a blast! :thumbsup: Can't wait to see pics. :grin_nod:

No dragging besides the other piped z400s and my kfx434, which were walked on, not enough people to run.

How much faster is it? Well, stock fifth gear was useless for me, I would slow down in fifth, with the pipes fifth is very usefull, forth gear all I do is lean back and give it gas and it pulls the front end easy. Like I said, this thing is stupid fast, next season when it gets a 12.+ pison in it I'm thinking it'll be labeled "stupid fuckin fast". All in all I don't think any stock bore four stroke could beat it.
