Jim Hoellerich

Someone posted on FB NETRA TALK that Jim Hoellerich passed away.
For those that knew him and his NETRA history, he has a farm property up in Cheshire, MA that has a vintage dirt bike museum. It's quite the place if you've ever been there.

Re: What's on the Test Track?

Took my 00 400EXC for a test ride around my private backyard test track yesterday. It had been parked for 15 years. My initial thoughts after starting it were, how do you operate one of these things? :hmmm: Realized it's an automatic model after I noticed there wasn't the usual clutch lever on the l...

A couple of frozen crunchy to 5 to 6 inches of crunchy snow in the most northern sections.
Most areas have low snow with ice and frozen ground.
Hasen't been this mint in a number of years!

Re: Remember when...

Here's the 1979 IT175 https://youtu.be/ZQJxLf8raNg Bike is far more capable than Oldschool gives it credit. Light and nimble but stable too. With some suspension work, this bike would be able to control all the ponies that motor puts out If you need a lighter test pilot for that IT, I know someone!

Re: 2020 Northeast 24 Hour Challenge

Was there even a small brook or stream there before?
All that water doesn't necessarily mean a dam or something gave way. If there are hills/ mountains in that area they will collect large volumes of run-off quickly.

Re: Stolen Bikes on the Rise

I use a wireless alarm as well. Soon, a webcam will be in the barn so I can look to see what's happening. Or just stare at my bikes when I'm lonely. My wireless alarm has only had 2 or 3 false alarms, most likely critters looking for shelter. Reolink makes rechargeable battery powered wifi cameras....

Re: Stolen Bikes on the Rise

I keep posting this Harbor Freight alarm on the stolen bike Facebook posts. It is only effective when you're home, but will wake you up. The only down side is if mounted outside, your local night critter with set it off, but better than being out several grand in bikes! https://www.harborfreight.co...

Re: Winter Storage

I switched from Stabil to StarTron stabilizer which seems to work better. I have chain saws that haven't run in a couple years and start right up after putting in some fresh fuel mix. I don't drain my riding mower in the fall, but run the StarTron in it for the last leaf pick up.

Re: 2021 NETRA Schedule Released

Is the Snow Run Enduro still on? The ad is up. I will be doing the route sheet, but haven't heard from the trail boss yet. Where is the ad? I don't see it on Netra Events: https://www.netra.org/event/2021-en-snow-run/?instance_id=1489 Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk https://www.facebook.com/ct...
