Saturday morning in Brown Co.

I plan to ride over and meet Tim at McDonald's at 9AM Saturday. I assume that means rain or shine as Tim is no wimp. Think you have time to do a little ride around the county before you have to head back north?

Neat video on the Scorpa T-Ride. It looks like they have dropped the Yamaha motor this year and replaced it with a 2-stroke? The Scorpa US importer, Ryan Young, has his headquarters in Shelbyville, KY just about 25 minutes east of Louisville. They had a prototype there a year or so ago but they didn't expect to import it as it would sell for over $9K.

Also check out the KTM freeride 350.
Low seat height. Quiet. Two cycle. Lightweight. Perfect for plunking around.
That video was majestic.

Anybody who wants to ride along holler.
Post up if you ever plan a Sunday meet at Bear's. Some of us schlubs work Saturdays.

ChevalDeFer - Thanks for the great video. It brought back some great memories from many years ago. I look forward to riding up to the fire tower again. PAUL - that Scorpa reminds me of my old Beta Alp. That was a great bike but it wasnt great at trials or fast trail. Still lots of fun though and would like to have it back

NOT boring, you're a good fiction writer, buddy http://woodsrat.com/one-last-ride-in...tional-forest/

I read slow because I'm dyslexic; just read part one and have to go to work now. Whenever I read about an old DT1 or early 70's DT on the trails, I cringe, recalling my first, a 73. That thing was a pig, and I'm happy not to have it. It was ratty and all I could get after a season of detasseling corn. The second one, a 78, was a world away. High plastic fenders, monoshock, it was the rats ass to me. Put a huge sprocket on the back and on the tight mountainous trails, kicked ass on all the guys buying XL650's. That one I wish I kept. Left it in the Philippines. The XL's were nice too, and they got me back on the fireroad type trails. My "new" SP250 handles a little better, but heavier and no powerband

Hi blue, I found that vid in another thread, I recognized Paul's name and reposted it here to find out where it was. It is a nice video.

Welcome to ADV! (or congrats on finally de-lurking ;) )

She scoots out pretty good. Slows down for the mud, so she's probably smarter than a lot of us too

It was nice to see the mud in the video. I about forgot what good ole Indiana mud looked like. Maybe this winter I can sling some of that around instead of Texas sand.
