My riding buddy had a C90, not the step thru. When we went riding, 9 times out of 10 I would come home on the back of his Honda while my Beezer rested against a fence post.

Gotta love British engineering!

Twin rear shocks. One did dampning the other spring rate.

I would have to say the Yamaha Trailmaster was the one I
remember best for really letting me explore after school.
80cc of OMG!

Zundapp had several models. I'm almost positive mine was a 50cc.

Roy Reynolds, the really vintage BMW dealer, turned us onto a german
guy that had an attic full of parts. Between Quick's and that guy my
brother and I never had a dime.

Local plug source?

Anyone know where to source good electrical plugs/connectors locally? Looking for something like a Packard Weather Pack

March 11-20, doing a 2000-2500 mile loop in AZ, UT. Riding a 450, GISkev is likely coming on his 650R. Looking for one other person possibly.

Riding 200-300 per day, at times it won't be big bike friendly.

photography

If anyone is interested.........I'm wanting to go out and shoot some snow/moto stuff. Knolls, delle, fivemile or whatever. I would be bringing lighting gear and camera equipment so nothing crazy remote. If anyone is itching to ride after it snows and doesn't mind taking time to get some cool pics, let me know......I'd like to go out and get some shots.

NAPA has a few connectors that look kinda like that. Wow this is deja-vu. For your 950?

Nope

Actually the 450x. Need to make a new harness and want to make a couple of the connections a bit more robust.

You should get in touch with the folks on TGR, lots of Utards who throw down on the bikes that would be game.

'Great Stuff' to your photography. Can I be 'in' too?! To compete with MSH, I might have to beat up my Multistrada. Of course, a dual rider shot with GISKEVs and A1ONEs xr650rs neck to neck would be cool too. Or better yet, A1one watching GISKEV going up some hazardous hill!
