    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Winter Riding or Store It
    It’s pretty evident winter has made it presence here in Missouri. Although, blizzards are rare and extreme negative temperature don’t happen often, some people put there bike up in the winter but a few “crazy” people try to ride. Two questions, how do you prep a bike for winter storing or what is it like to ride. If you don’t plan on riding during winter, follow these steps so hopefully you will have less headaches come the first nice day in the year. First, give the bike a good wash, like

    We have spent the week gearing up for Christmas at the shop.  Tomorrow is "Christmas California Style".  Some of the local businesses are having snacks and some other fun things going on during the day, leading up to the Parade at 5 PM. We are having Popcorn & Hot Chocolate from 10-4, so come on by. Christmas lights are starting to go up all over the place.  They are so beautiful. I could spend hours riding around and looking at them.  I don't usually get too excited this far before

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Set the Sag
    WARNING, I am not a suspension expert but understanding how it works is something that interests me. Having the bike properly set up helps the overall rideability of it. I’m not saying you have to go spend a bunch of money to get your suspension tuned but suggesting to at least have your sag is set correctly. Doing so insures the correct size springs are in your bike along with allowing for better overall handling. The sag can be decreased to make quicker handling but will reduce high speed

    Frieda & 5TK
    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Wednesday night, I went to watch Five Turn Knot preform. What a show!! I was dancing, singing, and got so into it that I ended up on the stage. I did not even realize it until Robert, the lead singer, scooped me up. I thought for sure I was in trouble and would be taken out by security. Not at all! This band was so cool! I instantly became a honorary band member, "Frieda & Five Turn Knot" is kinda catchy, don't ya think? I could easily get use to

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Greasy
    When it comes to grease, use it like you have an endless supply. Keeping the bearings lubricated with an amble amount of grease can extend the life of them. This simple task will make them last longer and in the long run it will be cheaper. Most new bikes come with grease on the bearings, but normally it is not a sufficient amount. While the bike is still brand new, we like to take it apart and add additional grease to the steering head, wheels, linkage, and swingarm bearings. My #1 rule of

    On the Hunt
    I spent some time in the woods last weekend.  I wanted to find that big buck everybody talks about. I got up EARLY Saturday morning and blundered out to my tree, half asleep.  It was soooooo cold!  I sat there forever. Like 30 whole minutes. All I could think about was warm milk & algae.  I grabbed my gun, trotted right back to the house, and fluffed my feathers by the fireplace while my milk heated on the stove. I went back out Saturday evening and sat until dark.  A couple of birds flew by,

    Wrench Tip Wednesday: Too Tight to buy Oil
    Man, dirt bike specific oil is high! Can’t I use automotive oil and just change it every time? My answer is no but you do what you want. For starters, lets talk about the oils journey in the engine. 4 strokes use a recirculation oil system. Oil is forced into the filter by an engine driven pump. The filter picks up large particles that should not be there. After it goes through the filter, the oil enters the oil pump and then fed throughout the engine. Minimizing heat and friction build up is

    MHSC B Class Champ - TEAM BETA
    One of our local riders has had a ton of success this year on his Beta! Below, Jared Cheatham talks about his stellar year. "Hello, I’m Jared Cheatham, I’m 25 years old and been riding dirt bikes since I was 7, but just started racing in 2016. I generally rode Yamaha’s all my life.  I started from the little ole PW80 to a trusty little (Honda) XR80, to a mean zippy little yz 85. That thing was a rocket, kudos to all you little kids that race them bad boys! I then made a huge step to a yz250

    Take Me Back To Alabama....
    Well I made it all the way to Alabama and back without being tossed out a window!!        It was the 2018 National Enduro's last race.  Steve wasn't able to compete, because he took a spill practicing at home and has a bum wing. Even though he wasn't able to ride this race, he finished the season with 2nd in his class.  Tayler raced and struggled a little bit mentally. She found the course to be quite trying at times. She said she would be in 3 foot sand whoops and then suddenly be thrown onto
