Just a quick link to some dirt bikes that were not all they were advertised to be.

Thanks Jeff. I see the TM400 Suzuki Cyclone earned the top spot for the worst bike of all time.
My first cousin Mike had one in the early 70's and I can attest to everything that was said in that article. Crazy is the word that comes to my mind. The only fun we had with it was to get on a straight dirt road and pull the trigger on that monster.
The back wheel spun so fast that it tried to pass the front wheel. IE: You suddenly found yourself going sidewise and about to highside.
He sold it to Archie, now one of the mechanics at Kiley's Cycle shop on hwy 29.
Ask Archie about that crazy thing for a good laugh . He liked it

How 'bout Sunday a.m.? Maybe we can get some of the guys off of here to show us around the BW which is a little closer for us.....anyone, Bueler? If not, the spot where the justdualsports guys meet up is about 39 miles/50 mins from me in Pace and a little farther for you Jim, so if anything maybe we can trailer the bikes over or just ride the bikes out together. We'll see if anyone rogers up tomorrow....?

I'm staying in this weekend, The last 2 outings to blackwater have netted me 2 broke bikes. Plus need to do a little maintenance to the Jeep. KLR is mostly fixed (AKA bent back the way it was pre sweatfest) KLX is waiting on parts. Jeep is showing 10psi for the oil pressure all of a sudden Yes it has oil

Tomorrow morning

First: anyone riding tomorrow. I could do an early ride. Robin/WD ?

I was thinking we could go find the helo's. I know about where they are off 211 and maybe Mug or someone can give me a google coordinates.

Or we could jaunt through BlackWater with MI and Jag if they can ride Sat.

Second: Thanks for the bad bikes link. I had forgotten the TM400. Never rode one but even back then they had a bad rep.

They're right on the Santa Rosa/Okaloosa county line, RR 725 I do believe.

3036'13.58"N 8647'46.78"W Should be you pretty close.

Should have it in less than a week. My "other" bike has a bid on ebay so that cash should cover the "out the door cost" of my new arrival.

Would love to follow you guys through the woods. I'll bring yall a loaf of bread so I can follow the bread crumbs. I promise not to be dead weight either.
Welcome!! These guys will eat that loaf of bread first chance they get.

No dead weight here! No FF left behind

Might do some splooring out there.

Welcome Cleefurd! Jump right in. We have some other n00bs who are also getting use to the madhouse.

Buzz, is it true that orange is coming into your life? Details?

by the time this is typed there will be five more posts....
