What are you riding these days? Been a tough year for us. Kid hasn't made a single race.

I picked up a 2007 YZ125 about a year ago and set it up for woods. It's an absolute blast to ride, WFO every where and feels like a mountain bike. I got a 2000 CR250 about 2 months ago as a 2nd bike or possible flip. Tore it completely down and I'm now going a little crazy with it. Sent the motor to Eric Gorr for a big bore, case and cylinder porting, head work, new crank and rod, etc. powder coating the frame, had Enzo revalve the suspension, Rekluse, Left hand rear brake, etc etc. money pit!! I had my left knee replaced 3 months ago so I haven't been able to ride. I'm about ready to hit the trails again though. Might go this weekend.

Harbor Freight finally had one of the smaller trailers in stock over the weekend. I picked it up along with a cheap Lincoln MIG off craigslist. The plan is to add a center beam that extends out the back and then do a 40x75 deck with a wheel chock out front and tie down at its corners.

Want to plan one around October? I'd be in for a red river trip once it cools off a bit. All I'm doing til then is working on my trailer in the a/c. Or street riding.

The trailer is close to being done. I installed the deck and wired the lights today. Loaded the bike to check if my guess at weight distribution worked out. Seems to be good with a bias toward the tongue. I may trim the corners of the deck but not sure yet. I flipped it on its end to do the wiring and noticed the right side wheel/hub is bent. Kind of sucks considering how deep I am into assembly. Going to see if they can exchange just the wheel for now. I wont be running the straps as shown in the image, just wanted to get it up there.

I was able to register the trailer this past week. Also found that the rear tire had some cracking around the lug bases and seemed old/dry. Picked up a Shinko R505 and one of the Tubliss inserts. I am meeting some friends in Taylor Park this coming weekend then heading out to Durango for more riding in that area.
