    I'm sure Carter would enjoy it. As for the Ascot.......I don't think I could bring myself to put the bike on the track. I ride it everyday commuting to work. Love the little bike. I would be afraid I would wreck it. It does sound sweet though with the muffler removed. :evil Would be funny a straight piped bike with plates and a pelican case on a rear rack doing laps. :lol3 I could use the turn signals when I enter the turns.

    Guess the biggest thing is I am working 7 days a week now and when I do make it home I have to play catch up around the house. That last strom did some roof damage. Trying to figure out how to get that taken care of now. Borrowed a ladder last night. Get off at 3pm today so it will still be daylight when I get home. If all goes well I guess I will be on the roof by 3:30.

    Does anyone know the whereabouts of this motorcycle? We are just trying to find it after selling it 20 years ago and may have interest in getting it back. It is a 1980 250KX Kawasaki sideport motor housed in a Bultaco 164 Astro frame. The conversion was made using a kit produced by Viper out of Ohio. The mounting plates are stamped with Viper's logo. The bike was ridden by many years by Keith Miller 188C before being sold to a rider from the central or eastern part of NC around 1992. Please send me a PM or contact me via Facebook if you have any info. Possibly one more entry for the 250 vintage class if we can find it....

    This belonged to a guy that races with us, it was sold to a man in his late teens eary 20s back in '81. The bike was in the Raeford/Red Springs area.

    You gotta be careful about learning this dirt stuff, as soon as you learn one obstacle someone's already showing you the next one. :D

    I have more fun on a few miles of dirt than I ever did on a hundred miles of pavement. Don't get me wrong a nice long road trip to an obscure location is still a great way to spend a weekend or a month!

    I've finally put some time into this bundle of joy, and have been getting skooled on RE electrical wiring in the process :eek1

    In their effort to make this look even older than it is, about 300 miles of cloth tape was gobbed over every wire possible. Sadly, they didn't ensure proper connections were maintained for the wrapping. A 2 volt drop from battery to coil goes a long way to explaining the no start complaint. I'll be upgrading to electronic ignition to elminate at least one Lucas part:clap
    .There's some odd cut/splice work in the bucket trying to make a 55/60 headlight run and elminate the top mounted key switch. An (electrical) overloaded bowl of not good.

    Any ideas on making a front brake light switch? :huh Oh, i forget to mention "whitworth" sizing". The only bike I've owned that requires hot tea to repair!

    Lots of effort for something without knobbies :rofl

    Damn! I wandered in there from the suzuki dealer a couple times, great people just no way I would ever buy something there.

    Need somebody to pick up the Honda and baby sit her until you get back? It'll be a burden but I'd be willing to make the sacrifice.

    Right now, they still have the Honda. Melissa has called all their numbers and left messages everywhere, no response. Considering calling the police and seeing if i can report it stolen, since they are out of contract and won't give me access to it. I wonder if that will fly...

    Had a similar thing happen years ago with a friend of mines motorcycle, first thought is to go and start bustin stuff up, but getting the "Law" involved turned out to be the "right thing to do"... Didn't relieve as much tension, but it got his junk back. Plus you need to start the "documentation process" that he has unauthorized pocession of your property.:deal

    I have a friend that they owe money to also...Go ahead and get your name on the list...:ddog

    Good news. Melissa talked to Scott Britt. He said she could pick up the bike on Friday. Hopefully this pans out and all will be well. Why does crap like this always happen during a deployment?

    Hey all,

    I live in the Wilmington area and have been wanting to test ride a super tenere for a while now. I know they have one available to ride at Team Powersports in Garner. I was just wondering what you could tell me about this dealer? Do they have a good reputation? Easy to deal with? I'd like to hear about your experience with them. None of the other dealers in the area have one in stock, let alone one I can ride. The dealer in Jacksonville didn't even know what it was...:huh

    Thanks

    I like them.
    I wonder if I can convince them to let me take a test ride down to meet you in Wilmington on it?


    :lol3

    I'll PM you more details.

    Never bought a bike from them, but I have been there several times and bought parts. They have a friendly staff and seem pretty helpful.
