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.

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.

Bear Hardware Sunday

I am planning on heading down to Bear Hardware from the Indy area on Sunday morning, because I could use a new tee shirt. Any one else heading that way?

Cheval, one of these days we need to get your white 990 out with my black 950. "Ebony and Ivory". Also, you are the only other LC8 around that I know of.

Seems like it'll happen, I plan on adding Nashville/Bear to my Sunday route when I don't have other plans. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

I got a PM a while back from a guy from Lafeyette that was heading to KY with friend, both on LC8s, so there are a few around. I have seen an orange one somewhere around Bloomington I think.

Understand here that regardless of what weekend we pick somebody's gonna have something else going on and everybody ain't gonna be able to make it.
You set them in stone and ill start working on getting the days off.
