    I've been watching the hard enduro channel on Redbull TV for weeks now. IDK if its because they only show the top level pros who really know what they're doing or what, but this looks way worse than some of that stuff.

    Good on ya for signing up, and you know if you need crew I'll be there.

    Re: 2018 TKO

    This for sure is going to be one hard ass event. Once my fitness comes around I think I can handle the riding part more or less. My sole intention is to finish the event. I have no vision of anything else. Just go and be part of it. That and watch the pros on Sunday while i lick my wounds.

    I did have pizza and beer last night..

    Amazing! Tell us about your setup please.

    Random question but is there a separate women's race? I just noticed there was a women's registration and found it odd..

    There is a separate class for the ladies. I think they are even on track by themselves too. Not sure on that.

    The men's class sold out in mere minutes. I got confirmed at 7:04. It went live at 7:00. The dude that was going with me didn't get in and we started at the same time to sign up.

    This bike is so capable. I have not found anything other than the tires that I don't like yet. I've been massaging the ergos a bit. I already tossed in big boy springs. A full compliment of Bullet Proof Designs guards have been installed. Once I get in warm weather and the bike is broken in well I may mess with the jetting a bit. It was a major sticking point on the 2017 models but it appears that the 2018 is much better.

    I can't remember the last time I was so excited about a bike.

    Re: 2018 TKO

    I might consider running this if I were more skilled, but I wouldn’t know enough swear words, even though I know all of them.

    Braaap...fuck!...brip...shit!...THUDmotherfuckingdammit! kickkickkickbrapwhapsnapfuckkkkOWWW!!!!!!

    That would continue for seemingly hours straight, until I’d get hurt, break the bike, or give up. Probably not in that order, and not for that long.

    Wait..come to think of it, that was only a flashback to my last run-of-the-mill Jday extreme section!

    (Good luck Adam!)

    Dude that 300 you bought is gunna suck there.

    Rokon Trail Breaker is the HOT setup. No more kick starting! (cause it's pull start).

    I eagerly await your review of the Rokon once you trade that stupid 1wd bike in.

    That rocky climb is where my ride would end. I would simply be stuck on the course til they came and removed me.

    the one that starts around the 12min mark? Webb and Jarvis were so smooth through there, like zero wheel spin. amazing.

    Yup, that one. Even those guys couldn't make it look graceful. The next riders who must be insanely good were flailing.

    Better keep one of those spares at home so you have something to ride when you get back.
