Many people seem to divide up there time between lot's of different things. Some of the old site people are using the facebook page and didn't migrate here, plus most if not all of us use advrider, too.
Enjoyed the benefits of your work Jethro and will keep an eye on the google page.
Hope to see you on the trails!
I've been spending most of my time riding trials lately (next event May 7th in Gallup) so haven't even had my KTM out since last fall, a sad state indeed. Where is that winning lottery ticket so I can quit work?

Oh well, not a big deal. When NM dual sports took a dump it seemed like there might be a need to replace it but even that site struggled to get people to regularly contribute with only 4-5 people doing 90% of the posts. I guess New Mexicans are the riding type and not the talking type! :P

I agree...I think it's time. Nobody really posts much to this site.  It's been good and you've done a great job.  Maybe it's just run it's course.... :'(

Heads Up!!!

I've pretty much made the decision to let this experiment, known as NM Tracks, end. I just don't see the sense it letting it continue when the Google Communities can perform the same function for the majority of things that happen here and it works better in some respects. If someone else wants to take over the site and do the management aspects that's fine too, but aside that happening sometime in July it will cease. Send me an email if you are interested. There isn't a whole lot to running it and I can help out if needed.

If there is any content that you want to save, like your ride reports, now is the time to copy it.

I want to thank all of you who threw your support into the site. Don't forget, there is a google community that you can use if you wish Southwest Tracks https://plus.google.com/communities/102193627257743343305

    Yes George.... It pulls both sides back equally and will lock your adjusters where they were. In the case of snail adjusters, make sure they are spun so they are both equal of course, notch 4 or whatever they were when you took it off.

   Try this tip next time you are putting your rear wheel back on...  While the axle is still loose, stick a rag between the sprocket and chain at the top of the sprocket and roll the wheel BACKWARD. This pushes your axle as far forward as it can go into the adjusters. Then I hold it there like that with my knee while I tighten the axle nut from behind the bike. Remember to roll the wheel back forward to take out the rag. Same perfect chain adjustment every time.


   Usually, if a log is big enough, I just ride around the end of it.A lot easier and better for your wheels.

Nice. Does this technique make it match both side of axle?

It looks to me like he missed the ramp over the log.
