The ABS and Traction control can be fully turned off and you can unleash the 190hp... At the track only of course

Question

Ok CT guys, is this real? A Honda Trail 70, rebadged as a Rupp Scrambler Trail 70! Rupp is cast into the engine side cover. I have NEVER seen one of these one any of the Rupp sites!





Well, I guess I found my answer already. It's a twain-iez copy.

Hi Guys:

Along with some of her friends, my wife is going out to run part of RAGBRAI this year and I'm going to trailer out my 750 Nighthawk to Iowa as well. I'll be hauling a bunch of RAGBRAI bikes along with the 'Hawk.

I'll have four glorious days to ride. Last time I was there, I went up to McGregor and then into WI and MN. Great scenery.

This time, I'm thinking of going out to Nebraska from CR on the Lincoln HIghway (or what's left of it) but I'd like to hear any and all suggestions.

Thanks.

CL

Consider running the rear brake to the hand lever so that you can still brake when turning with your right foot on the ground.

I got a new bike this week too. To bad it's still at Weber's. To much snow to ride it and to much crap in our shed to park it here right now.

Nice bike Dan, I had the faster Yellow one I liked it almost as much as my Ducati.

Cry

Well, I turned the flattracker down. I feel bad about it to, it was a great bike. So, whoever buys the TT500 ice bike up in Floyd, they are getting a great deal! The guy said it had a title, and it just had a DNR tag, so I turned it down because it does me no good. The motor seemed and sounded real good! And only $750!

So, now I think I'll just buy the other '83 TT600 bike here in town. It's twice the bike that mine is, for only $400! It was once titled, It just doesn't run. 640cc or so big bore, full SuperTrapp system, cammed, and aftermarket rear shock (might be a White Brothers).
