hmh! what year is it? i've never seen one. that's a bike i'd like to get. maybe we didn't get them here in South Africa. (all i know are the XTs (of course), the TTs and the SR road version.)

what i want now is a Yamaha BT100 Bulldog, but we don't get them here. apparently the US got them this year, or maybe it's the 2005 model. it's so frustrating, i'm trying to find out if i can get one from the UK, what that'll involve.

Well I guess I must throw in the 1942 here. And Yes that is a Pinzgauer behind it.



Cheers,

Very nice, Marc. I assume it started life as a military model? Do you ever go to the AMCA meets?

Yep it started out life as a World War 2 military bike. I got it after sitting in a barn for 30 years (beleive it or not) as a bobber and restored it to civilian trim. It was a lot of fun to ride but it was really only a short distance bike. 50 to 55 mph was about all the farther I wanted to push it. It is now living in a museum. I do miss it but just could not turn down the rediculus offer I was made for it. I may do another one some day if it presents itself to me.


Thanks,
Marc

I'm with your here, Chopperman! The best time I had at the Redmond Rally was riding behind you as we terrorized the camp ground on the ride through!.
I just recently acquired a high miler R100S project. Its a complete bike, and should be a good runner, once I get the brakes sorted out. The PO, unfortunatly has passed on due to an untimely demise in a freak accident on a borrowed Harley. I bought his trusty old Beemer from his daughter to keep it from the scrap yard. Now what to do with it. Its a '78, with over 200K on the clock, but has lots of new parts. The PO bought it new, rode it like he stoled it, but did keep it up. For now, I'm thinking a decent but cheap paint job, and find a S fairing ( it had had a Luftmeister fairing, till a deer took it out, but has high "American bars" on it.) Return it to close to stock, or possibly a cafe strip down racer bike. Who knows, I gotta bond with it over the winter and see what it says to me. Its not that I needed another bike (just ask my wife :^)
I'd post a pic, but I can't get this site to upload?? No idea why.

This one's for mutineer. Anyway, this is where my adventure riding started, with a 76 XT500 I picked up for $250 in August of 02. Me and this old bike got to be very good friends, and we went everywhere together. It opened up my eyes to how the other half lived (I was a squidboy until then) and showed me the other 95% of the world.

This is very shortly after I got it, I was out and about in the oilfields. Such a cool bike.


This was right after I dumped it on the side of a hill. You really can't tell except for the rumpled license plate. It was at this time I decided adventure bikes were cool. My KTM wears that exact plate today.


So I decided I wanted a bigger tank, and it was orange and no way to paint it, so I painted the rest of the bike to match, and got some new plastic fenders.

Seat cover courtesy of my mom.

My XT will forever be referred to as 'Old Skool'


Lessons learned: #1. Don't sell classic bikes. Oh well. #2. On classic bikes, stock is trick! Leave em alone!

Anyway, this grand old lady was my introduction to a larger world, and I'm a better person because of her.

And I forgot to add my favorite picture I've ever taken. This hangs on the wall in my living room. You can actually see the curvature of the earth in this pic.

Man, that picture is the answer to every "why ride" question anyone was ever asked.

I love that XT, "seat cover by mom"

Very cool pics.



I heard a guy once say

" . . . a little bit of gas, a bike you can work with the tools on board, blue sky and a day to kill, if you need more you probably wouldn't like riding with me."


he was a genius.

There are a ton of xt's on the road in the philippines, I almost go crazy there riding down the road in a taxi with xt's buzzing past.
