Mo-Towed

I did find a way to spend almost half the time on the green lawn thing.
Took my old riding yard thing and stripped it down and now tow it b hind the green thing.
Two mower decks, two engines. Ya man.
Now I need to paint the old yard thing green and yellow to match.
I call it my mo- towed.

Been thinking about knocking the weeds down with a XR100 flat tracker.
Still trying to convince my gal it a good training thing, and something she can ride too.

You back up here yet?

Great ride today! I had 151 mi from door to door. Still had 3 gallons left in the tanker. Good Mother's day. You Mother's rode good.

2012 500 EXC. First year, all the 12-13's are exactly the same. In 2014 KTM changed the crank to a plain bearing that would last about 5x, improved the mapping and put on a real H4 headlight. Looks like it got over 60 mpg today, despite the 'rented mule' syndrome.

Guess so! That is nothing new! Try that next weekend Big Al.
Vintage show at the Benton Fair Grounds.
Might be the best in Oregon.
Your old ZX7R of mine that I still have is old e-nuf to show, so you might reconize some of the bikes...na... it not in the show..just old e-nuf.
They had a nice Suzuki 2 smoke 500 last year..early 80's.
Also, got a B-Day you can crash Sat night. Burn the house down with all the candles going.
Come on down!

Thanx for the offer, and doubt I can make it as I am likely in Anacortes area Sat AM; long way down so to speak.

Happy B/D anyways, hope the firetrux don't have to show!

Dufffff....Anacortes...Washington....you did blow by me too fast.

Here's a Washington memory for ya. Ya remember the flat track race we went to at the horsey track?
We were getting a adult bev at the stand, and I noticed a weird vibe about?
We got there just at the tail end of a fight and we were standing in a pool of blood. Yuk!!!!
