    Now if Yamaha marketed the BW 350 like that it would still be in production.

    Spartandude,

    Thank you for stopping at two. I thought I was going to have to start counting on my fingers.

    Moose DK,

    The bike that you see is a 1987 BigWheel 350. It is similar in many respects to the new KTM 350sx. The BW had a series of top 10 finishes in Supercross in the late 80s before Michelin got the fat tires banned from AMA racing. That spelled the end of BigWheel development.

    canoli,

    Please don't refer to the videos as crap. I prefer the terms "tripe" or "rubbish." Or my favorite "useless drivel."

    It looks so much better on a resume. Thanks for watching again.

    Regards,

    Mr. BigWheel

    Once again, a very entertaining video. I don't have to think much when I watch your videos. I like that!

    Scott,

    That is a nearly complete representation of the full spectrum of colors. I assume that it helps everybody remember which bike is theirs.

    I'm imagine that some of the members can't be trusted with motors, lest they wander away from the home?

    Regards,

    Mr. BigWheel

    Ah, I see how you could come to that conclusion. However, what the picture didn't show was the rebuilding of the engines for those off road machines going on to the right. Rest assured, they were soon back on the road with the rest off the O.G.

    Thanks for taking the time to watch the videos guys. There are some others on the BigWheel site, but don't feel pressured to waste any more of your precious time watching them, unless you were considering watching ANY of the programming on MTV tonight:

    Scott,

    I'm glad to see that the gang is gravitating towards a sensible riding platform. The fat tires and 5hp Briggs and Stratton all smack of a domestically produced BigWheel. Absolutely perfect for terrorizing the beachside towns.

    Regards,

    Mr. BigWheel

    That was a great video!...humor and all. :thumb:freaky


    If you ever want to spice-up your "mixture", try my combination...

    Jack Daniels, a bottle of pills (your choice/favorite), and a coupla' lines of blow. :happay
    "Sheen" and I used to do that, before we'd pick-up the hookers to go ridin'. :lol3


    And, by the way, this is the funniest shit I have ever read...

    WARRIORPRINCEJJ,

    After consulting with the other guys, we've elected to follow your sagacious advice. We have a birthday coming up, and your mixture may just be the thing to help me avoid artificially speeding up all of the video clips in a desperate attempt to avoid looking old and slow.

    Hopefully, we can avoid the headlines that you and Charlie incurred. Although, they say any publicity is good publicity....

    Regards,

    Mr. BigWheel
