    Come ride the Poker Run this weekend Oct. 19 and test ride the new 2009 BMW 450X. Talked to Bob Honz from Gateway BMW at the Falling Leaf Rally in Potosi over the weekend. He is going to bring the new 450X out Sunday so that some true dirtbike riders can test it. I rode it around a little Friday night...Not real impressed with the power, but I'm sure that can be adjusted with the FI mapping. The handling was great though. Hoping to ride it more this weekend. Come on out and give it a try.

    Directions:
    From Sullivan, MO(I-44) - 23 miles south on 185 to T-hwy, follow arrows

    From Potosi, MO - 11 miles northwest on 185 to T-hwy, follow arrows

    Have you guys seen the cool ad they are running? I just saw it on the Eastern Dirt website. I heard that EDM is going to get one to review for their Dec - Jan issue. Can't wait to see it!

    Uncork the BMW

    Talked to Jeff at Halls Husqvarna last night. They have a new BMW there that they are tuning for a guy. From the factory the bike has 41 hp. Jeff said that if you uncork it and get rid of the O2 sensor the FI mapping will automatically change and give the bike at least another 10 hp. That sounds good, but there's the problem of the huge radiator thats going to be ripped off by the first tree you hit or the first time you do a soil sample. Come on out and check it out to see what you think.

    660,
    Have a couple guys wanting to take off about 8:00am to get some miles in. Be there early and you can go on the pre-ride for the ride I have scheduled for next weekend. Also, Gateway BMW emailed me this morning and said that the 450X would be unpluged for the test rides Sunday.
