    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.
    I have one of those that I'll donate to the cause.

    I pretty much bought this bike as part of the plan for the TKO and the Corduroy in Canada. I don't plan on scrapping it out.. I expect some character marks for sure.

    Awesome, and congrats on purchasing a proper, oil burning, expansion chambered dirt bike. Though I have a feeling that pipe will become quite the conversation piece.

    I’m pretty content just watching a hard enduro on tv. To have to absolutely wrestle a bike like that just to survive a lap doesn’t hold as much intrigue as seeing it on the yootoobs.

    You gonna do any local events to cross train?

    Yep, can't decide if it looks like a ton of fun or total nightmare or both.

    Re: 2018 TKO

    Training is coming along. Abuse on the Peloton bike and now night time snow riding. This is going to be key. Being able to ride multiple times a week for most of the winter is turning out to be great. Seat time is helping bike control and endurance.

    BTW. I'm in love with riding in the snow and the mother loving Husky...

    Deep snow seems like great training for mud. Breaking trail is almost like riding a jet ski. Then each lap after is like an endless rut you need to follow.

    Why didn't i buy these tires years ago?

    It would seem that it's going to be a few days before I ride again.. Dammit it's fucking cold out there. Maybe a quick ride on Saturday..

    My ice place is shit right now.. I'm in hopes that this super deep freeze will cure the water on top problem we have so we can ride.. Until then i will ride in the woods.

    Re: 2018 TKO

    A year late but we went to TKO this year.
    It was freaking sweet.
    I did not ride. I went to support my buddy. After seeing the course, I should have ridden. Honestly the Saturday courses were not that hard. The course at Tough Like RORR was harder. The Pro course on Sunday was a different story but so few get to race that....

    It's a great event at a great venue. For an offroad race it's very spectator friendly. Heck we could watch from our pit.

    Next year I will try again to get an entry I think.
    Tough Like RORR is on the list again too. That race is nasty hard. The guys that laid that out are demented freaks!!

    P.S. It's a long ass drive to TKO from Upstate NY. I put 2400 miles on there and back.

    Re: 2018 TKO

    awesome you made it. i kept meaning to find this thread to see if you rode it.

    if you're hungry for some gnar closer to home, we were out at October Mtn again on Sunday and ran into the NETRA trail boss scouting for Sept 29th RocktoberFast Enduro ... not sure what they have planned but there is plenty of challenging terrain in the northwest corner of the forest.

    EDIT: a comment from last years RocktoberFast...

    Woah that was a capital E Enduro!

    My buddy Tom, whose done TKO and RORR said this was significantly more difficult. Despite that, I had a ton of fun.

    We are headed to British Columbia for another epic Traction eRag adventure on Friday. Maybe I'll be up for something by the end of the month. The problem with most NETRA enduros is the need for a plated bike...
