    I know you don't want to add aux lighting but you could theoretically add it to the front carrier, not the bolt on hitch, just mounted to the motocarrier and have a plug for when you remove it. That way your not adding anything stupid looking to the front of the van permanently, and wiring in a simple switch to near the driver seat should be fairly easy.

    Funny thing is the front mount will probably weigh less with the bike on it then some of the front bumper setups with all the accessories in the world bolted to them.

    There are some serious bad-asses in Marin with those front/rear bumper set-ups, lift kits, and flood lights. I'm sure its completely necessary for the fire roads they go on.
    Jerks buying up all the 4x4s.

    Aux lights on the rack is a pretty good idea. Just some cheap amazon light bar or something.

    Let the escalation continue.

    I may buy the lights off you when you’re done too if this helps.

    Drove it for the first time in just under a year. Just home from storage. Fun little bike.

    RC390 competitive in anything in NEMRR/LRRS?
    Can I change suspension and still be competitive? If not, is the only workaround starting with a cup version?

    If I remember right, the Cup version is restricted for class uniformity.

    Been awhile since I've looked at this rulebook.

    Rulebook says RC390 Cup is supersport legal.
    I imagine putting new forks with adjustability on a normal RC390 makes it illegal for supersport? Rear shock should be okay to upgrade?

    Yeah, I believe most go with a full cartridge kit for the front and complete shock for the rear. I’d do some reading on the NEMRR rules on this class of bike. For a while to “level the playing field” they *very scientifically* dictated rules about power modifications. Not sure if those still exist.

    Scratch all of this. Just looked at results and there are 4 people that race in the 300 classes. Not really interested in that. Extra tid-bit, all experts are on R3s.

    I think I'm just leaning towards selling this here, maybe buying a 600 for track days back east, and that's it. This would be a fun little rain bike, but the limited track stuff I might even do does not require 2 bikes.

    What's the Timmy offer? I imagine this will go pretty fast at $5k, so not a lot of room.
