So all the best buddy, hope we catch up soon to ROOST IT UP a little.
I share the date with Bob Marley and President Reagan: February 6th.
But "Roost it Up"?
I'm just too old for that now, ask Mort......

Thank Dog I've had YOU to show me that getting old has very little to do with feeling young.
Yer a Dogdamn inspiration, Mort, thanks !!

Did I ever tell you about the time I was trail riding in the Burn, and came across a guy riding by happily riding by himself? We stopped to talk a bit, and he said he was 83 years old.

He has been my inspiration ever since.

And all this time I thought I was your inspiration!

That would've been Burt. He lived in Lees Camp and started riding out there about 1947, if I recall correctly. He was pretty good, bailed out one of my bud's once with his 3-rail trailer on his K-car.

Sadly, he passed away last year. Saw him last spring in Lees Camp store, we BS'd as usual.

Happy belated Birthday AJ!

I hope you had a great birthday. Looking forward to a belated celebration the next time we get to roost.

So, he was there before the trees. Don't let anyone say that motorcycles destroy the forests.

If he was then in his mid-nineties, he probably was the same guy.

I rode Mustangshelly's DR200 into town today at 7am,
slid sideways at 55mph on some ice, but held it upright....

Then her bike was bumped over on it's side by some travelling salesman on his cell phone while I was inside paying for gas.

How was your day?

Parts for my 1971 Suzuki TS185 are readily available from a combination of Rocky Mtn ATV, Bike Bandit, and EBay. Ought to be similar for your bike?

The TC seems to be more obscure bike.

Rocky Mtn ATV has a 1971 TC120 listed, looks like I can get points and condenser for it. Maybe the same for the TC90. I do have a TC120 parts bike, suppose I'll crack them open and see.

Welcome to the Hood
You've just started, and you've already found some of the good roads! On the first big open Ketchum flats on the top, look to the West and try to find the daffodil smiley face somebody planted out in the field. They'll be blooming next month. When you take Ketchum all the way to the powerlines, you can drop down to Mill Creek on Hedges Grade. That one's a treat, and a good test of your rock riding skills
