Thanks

Wingboy!

Take out "igloo" as location and at least put in a city/state near you, just so we know if we might run into you at a trails event/practice area, or what not.

Waterloo eh ? Let me know if you want to play in the Haliburton area. I have a little chunk on trials land there in the middle of a bunch more in the area, and am about an hr away from it.
Nice bikes, garage, floor ... back.

Nice looking bike.
I didn't even realise they still made Ossa's.
It looks a darn sight lighter than my old Ossa.

Look closely at the engine on the new OSSA's, kind of suprised me when I saw one up close but I have never seen another dirt bike engine like it. They have the cylinder tilted to the rear, and the airbox and carb are in front with the exhaust coming out the back towards the swingarm pivot. I am guessing it must save some weight with 16 inches of exhaust pipe not needed, as well as moving the CG rearward a tad. Does anybody remember or know what the marketing pitch behind that engine design was??

Cannondale did it some years ago.



And so did these guys. A lot of years ago.
