One Happy Dad!

My older daughter (8 now) decided that she was ready to ride late last summer. Since then she's done a fair amount of riding in the yard but hasn't "gone riding" with me (other than bringing the XR along to ride in the pits at a trials event last year). Today was the first time we actually loaded up and headed out for a ride. She started on the Oset, but since the trails were slick, rocky and rooty, she was more comfortable being able to sit on the XR50 (I brought both, just in case) and rode it all day.

She did much better than I expected. I did a bunch of pushing early on but I was amazed with what she was riding through/over/up by the end of the day. We took three trips up the biggest hill there - requiring less help from dad with each successive trip. If the trails had been dry I think she'd have made it on her own. On top of all that, she had a great time. She was also asleep in the truck before I was done loading the bikes.

At the top of her favorite twisty climb:



This is part of the loop for our trials event:




At the top of the big hill. This was section 4 for last fall's event:




Normally she rides in the backyard at home. Today we rode in this guy's backyard:




We don't have scenery like this in our backyard:

We had a great trials yesterday at San Ysidro!

Not many pics and they are all blurry. New camera and wrong settings.

I scored at a niftly rubble wash section in the morning.

We had Rick fall in this cactus.



Poor guy, it was all over his leg and in his hand.



We had Brewtus riding AMA on some vintage POS.







Grizzzly riding INT on a not as old as Brewtus' POS, but one nonetheless.




Our hero Bob M. who is 75 and rode really smooth.







I rode my first event in Semi-Expert and survived.

I finished mid-pack in a fairly large and talented class so I am stoked about that! It was loads of fun and strected my confidence quite a bit.

NMtrailboss smoked all of us in SX with a 17 in a day full of tough sections. Great job Curtis!!

the bikes went for a snow/ice/slush ride....but the Yamaha lost compression and sounds like it may have busted a ring had to tow it 8 miles threw the slush...the TLR 200 is a tank and towed about 850lbs of people/bikes/equipment

it was really fun trying to climb the icy hills

still working on my skills before I finally do a event on the TLR...we had a local event on Sunday but I passed on it because I rarely get to ride with my pops.

but I did spend a little bit of time practicing pre loading and popping up the front wheel over obstacles. and just overall slow/steady turning and balance

It is. OJ is an '86/'87 TLR200 Reflex. It spans both years, as the 3 piles of parts that built it were from both.

She's asking about riding this weekend again.

On top of that, I got to sneak in a lunch ride again today.

Merely a flesh wound.

The TY175 is based on an overbored 125 motor, and does run very hot due the cooling fins having been intended for 125cc.

If you run these bikes hard in muddy conditions without a mud flap on the front guard, then the front of the cylinder will quickly become clogged with mud.

This doesnt make a lot of difference if bike is being ridden slowly in trials application, but when piston crown temperature is very high due to sustained high rpm use, seizure on the front skirt of the piston will often result.

Its really a very good idea to fit a mudflap to any air-cooled bike thats going to get used in muddy conditions, as air-cooled cylinders really dont work very well at all when they are clogged with mud!
