Five Star Cycle Incentive Run 2012

Five Star Cycle put on a great event with this year's Incentive Run. This was my first time attending this annual event. I was surprised by the big turnout, I heard 170+ riders at one point. The guys at Five Star laid out some fun trails through the woods and there was a MX track and endurocross section as well. I chickened out on the endurocross stuff...maybe next year. After the ride we had good food and drinks in the showroom, a perfect way to end a fun day.

An entertaining day of riding in the remnants of hurricane Sandy. The wet conditions made for some challenging riding as you can see in the video.

Equipment Review: Scorpion Racing Heavy Duty Skid Plate

I finally got around to fitting a skid plate to my Gas Gas. I purchased the Scorpion Racing heavy duty skid plate directly from Scorpion Racing in Canada. It is a quality piece of equipment. Mounting was easy with no adjustment or clearancing necessary and it even came with some foam strips to cut down on buzzing and a foam block to keep mud out from between the plate and the engine case.
