    Pretty excited, our Black Pearl XP1K is...

    shipping on Friday. I didn't think I'd buy another ride, figured the 08 Teryx was it. We did have a lot fo fun with it, and it was a much improved machine wit the LT on it, but it was way down on power and I didn't want to drop a fortune on it to turn it into something it wasn't. And then we saw...

    Question on seat fitment

    I am pondering the possibility of selling the Teryx and buying a XP1k. If it works out I'd like very much to take my Twisted Stitch Seats with me, and sell the Teryx with stock fronts in it. (It is going to hurt enough losing the $ on the LT and such) I had the T.s.'s custom made for me and my...

    Clean bill of health, a question..

    Well guys had another little hiccup, my back this time, bottom line is they can't fix anymore without a multilevel fusion so I am gonna grin and bear it and get on with living.

    What I have been up to.

    Didn't know where to put this, it ain't a trip (yet) so i thought i'd throw it out here for discussion... I had another little setback, but that is ALL behind me know and I am going nuts waiting for the spring to arrive. We already have a trip set in stone to Vegas for the NASCAR race, and a...

    My world lately...a good ride, and bumps in the road.

    Well when I logged in it told me it has been over a month since I was here. I just wanted to let my pals here know I am still above ground, but have a full plate, so my time really has not been my own. We lost out jury-rigged internet connection about 3 weeks ago, and just yesterday got up...

    I want to humbly point out a few things I see about the industry, that, well, bug the crap out of me. It may just be me, but here goes. This is directed at all of the shops that supply engine big-bore kits, do head work, etc. Having spent time on all the usual suspect forums, I see all of you...

    This is a trip report, and a report on my experience with the new Cognito Fox RC2 LT kit on my 08 Teryx.<O:p</O:p Short version…it works; it works like crazy, and has a smile-per-dollar value that makes the Teryx a different animal, one worth owning. There is absolutely zero chance I’d ever have...

    THE SICKNESS; Do ya ever get it?

    I got it now. A subtle, yet very real upset stomach that comes along before every trip to the sand. The first time I got it was on a warm summer night some 35 years ago, in the wee hours of the morning on a deserted flat, straight two-lane stretch of road we called "slaughterhouse" that gathered...

    Question....How come the chabox went away?

    For awhile the chatbox was at the top of my page, I made a comment in it and now it is gone. I checked my settings and don't see anything to make it go away, what did I do, or what do I need to do to put it back up there? -I know this is going to be so stupid easy but I wanna know!:D

    My RC2 kit was shipped from Cognito yesterday, and arrived 350 miles later at my friends shop this afternoon.

    Kawasaki Question regarding Lt and wheel fitment

    I have an '08 LE and I am trying like crazy to sell my '65 Beetle to convert the cash into a LT setup for the 'Rex. I am not looking at the mid travel setups because we don't ride in width restricted areas and I want as much ride quality improvement as possible. I have had major back surgery and...
