    Yep, time will tell.
    I'd miss and would prefer the sound of a internal combustion engine.
    Manual clutch and shift.

    This was sent to me a while ago.
    Some fantastic computer skills bringing this engine to life:

    Once again, what was old is new again.
    Husqvarna is going after the old look of the 400 Cross of the Malcolm Smith and Steve McQueen days with a 650 dualsport.
    LOVE the Ducati Sport 1000. Another somewhat retro bike.

    If any of you regular range riders have some coordinates of cool stuff (tanks, helicopters, and the sort) I would love to get some. As my boys love exploring Eglin but obviously can't ride out there like I did back in the 70's. We go out regularly in the truck and are always looking for cool stuff.

    Thanks in advance for taking some time to post 'em up.

    YoYo riders,
    Up early, ready ?? to report to prison yard for another stint/stretch. My apologizes to everyone, especially Barney for the no-show at Treeman's ride. I had a monkey wrench tossed into my spokes/plans this wknd, sure was hoping to ride the trails before he harvested the trees.
    Will do my best to attend next group ride as I'm sure Mr.Brett's monkey butt needs relief/softer saddle on his pumpkin. Please rub it in by posting reports & pictures of what I missed !!
    Ditto on tdreyers above request on cool stuff co-ord's. I know you guys (Mugster, Inept & VO) have shown me some of the rusting surplus trucks, tanks, old bombed out bunkers (with C130 gunship lead scattered about), plastic city, etc. out yonder. Would like to waypoint/visit these areas next time I get the time/chance to ride the range again. Thanks ahead to anyone for PM or post with some of these spots co-ords.
    Peace out dirt bro's,
    JohnnyP

    FBM,
    I hate to see this but I understand. I really appreciate the "hook-up' on you letting me ride your Husky on Saturday at Treeman's when I was having problems with my bike. Anybody looking for a "Like New" well maintained fuel injected Husqvarna 450; this bike is it!
    O.C. :deal

    1st off... FBM - we spoke of this, and I totally comprende.

    2nd - where the hell is all the RRs and pix from treemans?

    (Or is it a "What happens at Treemans, stays at Treemans" sort of thing? :-)

    Here is a quick video of Treemans.

    Lots of info under Treemans site in the SE forum...

    This has nothing of the three DS rides that Treeman lead on Friday (107 miles) Sat (143) and Sunday (50).

    Great video Vic, just like being there although it's hard to get a full appreciation for some of the more challenging Low spots. Especially later in the day on Saturday. It was a blast and hopefully the trees will still be there next year!

    I just noticed this is a split race weekend. Beginners on sat and regular classes on sun. Which one u racing in. You might want to rethink and ride C class for the Sunday race. I am going to help out.

    The single track was Fab-u-lous!!.... I only got to ride it a few times, but I had a blast and it was challenging...just they way I like it :wink:

    That drop down mud hole got me once,,, but only once out of 3 times,,lol

    The last time I went through the trail, one of the bigger mud holes grabbed a hold of the KLX and would not let go,,,, so I took a short break until someone passed through...whoever stopped and pulled me out ... THANK YOU :clap

    It was a pleasure to see all of you again :D

    Sunday I went to Atmore moto track ...Great weekend all together and perfect for getting ready to race supermoto again this coming weekdend.

    Thank you Thank you treeman! I forgot to leave you a tip, can you pm me your address?
