Heal up guys.....

And you probably knew this was coming..... your little episode and resultant bodily injury is the reason "baby bikes" are sometimes the better choice for tagging.

While I agree with the sentiment, trust me on this-- the incident was in no way a reflection of a deficiency of the bike

As far as baby dirt bikes and tagging is concerned, the big problem in the winter months is the lack of juice the bikes can deliver. My 520 EXC had a magneto, which was very nice because you could kick start it even if the battery was dead. Unfortunately, it didn't have enough mojo to run any electrics. Going out in 32 degree weather, and riding 60 miles to a trailhead for a quick dirt tag was just painful (cold fingers especially). Riding 3 hours on a baby bike, with knobbies and freezing temperatures (and black ice), is just plain dangerous. And doing a dirt tag in the winter, at night, is pure masochism. Not to mention the lack of visability in turns, the deer, and again, the black ice. And if you get hurt, or breakdown, it will be a long evening.

New Duck drop.












Follow the pics from the bottom up to find the Duck.
Look for the little guy under that piece of discarded furniture on your right side. In spite of that sign, you can ride this thru, quite easily too. No need to turn around like we did for the pics.

Nice grab and drop DP - I knew you were going for it since I saw you heading south on 517 in Hackettstown before. I think I got bruced on a tag on the same road as the new tag a while back - is it in a dresser?

Lol ill tell him doc! lol
Crappy day today and darkness came quick! the drop was not our 1sr choice but time was running out.

Buzz, I guess it could have been a dresser at one time! lol
Someone just improved the road bigtime. Bruce and I went through there a month ot two ago and it was severly washed out. Hell now you could ride a Goldwing over it! Lol

And are you sure that Bruce's bike is a 690? Looks like a 500 to me.

Thats where the properly equiped baby bikes come in handy. My 525 could handle my gerbings with the upgraded electrical system. Also the headlight I use is even better than your stock SE light. Black ice doesn't care what your riding unless it has studded tires. I'd much rather go down on the ice on a 250 pound bike than a 430 pounder.

And BTW,,, a 690 dry is 313 pounds.

I don't think 500's have a perimeter frame. Looks like a 690 to me but I could be wrong.

Great minds think alike Vince.

Bruces bike is a 690. It just looks like a 500 because Bruce is sitting on it like Doc said.
