Yay, more "vintage" Honda riders! Haven't thrown my -92 Transalp into any serious danger yet, but it's undergoing a crashdiet over this winter, so the crash-ratio will increase as we start taking on the trails this summer! I have been tipping over alot with it, but no pics of all those stupid miscalculations though.

Great pics, guys!

Cheers / Mix

So I thought, "I'll build a shed to keep my bike out of the snow." Bikes parked back in the drive.

Posted this elsewhere but damn fitting here

I somehow managed to cross a thread on my valve stem. (nut went on fine anyway) When I went to replace the tube I was unable to release the nut In my infinite wisdom I figured 'F#©₯ it, I'll just grind the stem off.' In my more infinite wisdom I used my massive, wildly hard to control buzzing wheel of death die grinder instead of the precise, accurate dremel I would have had to drive 2 minutes to retrieve. Halfway through the stem I hear a TING, and something hitting the opposite wall of the garage. I look down to find:
One of these things is not like the other... Hint: the left hole was for a valve stem. The right one...

MOTHER 'F#©₯ER! Anyway my bike sat on my new walmart crutch trail jack (Thanks ADVRider!) for 3 days while the spoke was shipped. It has since been replaced by an offensively shiny new one.

Is there a reason not to take the short-cut over the mountain?
Seemed like a good idea.

Note to self: In January don't venture above 1500 meters.

On the T.W.A.T. Not ten minutes before this pick, the advice was given to avoid the big puddles

Put this in Face Plant already but figured it would be enjoyed here too.

It was a 50 something degree day in January, being it was about 2 degrees just a few days prior I 'spose I should've expected ice still.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYM-2...hMJjdqoQzbnsjw

afterward, now with a broken shift lever, I turned the bike back around downhill (the hill was considerably steeper than it appears in the vid) lo and behold a lot of ice!

btw, how do you embed a video, rather than just the link?

They all look like good ideas to me Doc!!
Especially that Algerian dune climb!


Here is one from my ever growing list of bad ideas. Too fast on inconsistent sand in direction of photo before a soft patch swallowed the front wheel and flipped us.
