Yep. Took the 640 out for some fun today.

We have just a touch more snow than you guys.






I think the geese are confused.

MXChamp,
Do you still Moto X? I was wandering if I would know you. I have raced MX in Iowa for 40 years.

Not anymore. That was my younger years.

Waterloo mainly at the old cattle congress track. Haven't even gone to see the new track.

Even tried to race in Winterset but got the days or times mixed up and didn't make that either. Can't remember which.

There was one time I was going to race in New Hartford but my truck broke down that Sunday morning 10 miles from home.

Had to get the CR out of the box to ride back home for tools and parts.

Goodtimes!!

I should change my user name because I am more of a chump than champ.

My last MX race was at the cattle congress where I overshot the double and cased it on the triple. Bounced so high I landed and slid off the tabletop with my right leg caught between the rear tire and swing arm.

The corner Marshall grabbed my leg and yanked it out. The bike landed perfectly upside down and I could have adjusted the chain while I was there. He helped me flip her over while I was getting passed, she fired up the first kick and I managed to pass some people before the race was over.

Ran into that Marshall a couple months later, he was a mechanic at webers cycle in Waterloo. He told me that was the funniest crash he had ever seen.

I should have run the A class. In the B class if you do the triple they bump you into the A class anyway. I was going to be cautious and didn't want to crash. Guess I failed.

That 1998 RM 250 was the best bike I ever owned for my last race. My CR was a 1985.

Man I'm old!

Now it's just dual sporting for me and I am still slooooowwwww!! Too chicken to do half the jumps at the Waterloo OHV park. I'm not in my younger 20's anymore.

Hey 2 whlrcr.

Repost that video of you last year riding around in the snow.

Give us something to remember how fortunate we are to have such nice weather this year.

Nice duck tape on the visor!!

Those were moose guards on the handlebars right?

Have hippo hands for the 640. Need that set for the 520.
