    Hi all, I'm new to posting, though have lurked for a bit.. hubby (tom327cat) suggested I should get off my butt and post, so here I am...

    in early 2008 he bought me a little red scooter.. i'd been in a bad car accident in 2007 and was just starting to get moving again and wasn't up to too much, so he got me a little Chinese 50 cc scooter to get around the neighborhood and into town in, instead of the big ole truck.. heh..
    don't have too many pics of me on it, the kids tend to snag it when they can, but we've got a few where we were all playing around in our circle, so here they are..

    this is of me chasing 2 of my stepdaughters on their scooters..


    and this one is of Tom preparing to show the girls how it's done.. (weaving thru cones, that is..)

    Hi All
    Just like to say hi and introduce myself. My name is Terry and I just brought home my new "09 KLR650 Red. Took it out for a little spin around the neighborhood and down a gravel road behind my subdivision. Can't wait to get the rest of my gear and take her out for a real ride.

    Cheers!

    This summer's 'fart around in the woods' bike that I've been tossing back together this weekend. Should have it running tomorrow.

    That looks like the ultimate fart around in the woods bike, and a clean example of the breed. :thumb

    Thanks, 5. I think it will be, too, although I haven't even kicked it yet. The GasGas and other modern trials bikes have become highly specialized stunt bikes and I'll never be Dougie Lampkin so it was time to put that one in the wind and get something I can put a move on instead of the other way around.

    Plus that old two stroke ding-da-ding ding ding ding is music to me. Can't help it.

    Got a ways to go before it's like I like but not too far. She's a working beaut as she sits.

    Heard that, too. From Shannon at TMS... but haven't heard what the latest is. Would be very cool if that were the case. Lot of variance between what the new stuff's capable of compared to the old twin shocks though so it might be tough to sort something like that out.

    Pic taken the day after this K GT was new in July '07 on the break-in ride to Valdez. During this trip I had nice chat with another rider, local guy, at the chevron in Glennallen on the way down. Could that have been Alcan Rider? He was telling some incredible tales...

    Alcan Rider, yep used to work at UAF but left after 33 years to fulltime work/play with the bikes. Finishing up a Norton, next up is a 68 Guzzi
    and then a CBX after that. But reading all the tales herein (but AKBeemer, I thought it was all true!) I see the need to have a dirt bike again. Now which one would the inmates herein recommend? :D
