I still disagree with your wifes idea for "Staging" the home.

You never know, it may appeal to a certain buyer. BrShootr?
A wife that kinky? Hell yeah!!!

Too bad I'm not in the market for a wife just yet. Oh well...I guess you'll have to settle for just selling the house.

Careful, that's some pretty stiff competition.


Yeah, we've already figured that out you little Brazillian Boy Toy.

Ride south next Mon/Tue

Any nutters want to take a quick tour down to southern utah and back to SLC next Mon/Tue? It will be cold but I figured there might be someone nutty enough to consider it. If I go I'm planning on riding the whole way on the Adv.

Thumb Proud owner of 1975 Suzuki TC-185 Ranger

I had one of these (bought it new in 75) and have always said that if I found one for sale, I would buy it... and I found online here in Utah on Monday, called, bought it sight unseen, and picked it up yesterday!

The TC-185 Ranger was the largest dual-range trail bike of its day, and when it's in "low" or "trail" range, you can crawl through (or over) anything (at least that's how I remember it!).

I dropped at the shop to have it serviced, tuned and the carb rebuilt - paid $300 for the bike and it will cost me $300 at the shop, and then, look out - blast from the past and I'll be trail-riding on the weekend! (This will be my single track/trail bike, and I'll have my V-Strom for the wide, paved open spaces!)

However, my question is - does anyone else have one of these, and if so, any suggestions (other than eBay or Google) for parts if/when I need them?

I'll also post some pics soon...

^^^^^^Nice!

I wish they still made bikes with hi/lo range if it were somehow feasible. You could ride the bike you wanted, then flip it into "hi" for the dreaded slab events.
