    So, he was there before the trees. Don't let anyone say that motorcycles destroy the forests. :ricky

    If he was then in his mid-nineties, he probably was the same guy.

    I rode Mustangshelly's DR200 into town today at 7am,
    slid sideways at 55mph on some ice:eek1:eek1:eek1, but held it upright....

    Then her bike was bumped over on it's side by some travelling salesman on his cell phone while I was inside paying for gas:huh:huh:huh.

    How was your day? :norton

    Parts for my 1971 Suzuki TS185 are readily available from a combination of Rocky Mtn ATV, Bike Bandit, and EBay. Ought to be similar for your bike?

    The TC seems to be more obscure bike.

    Rocky Mtn ATV has a 1971 TC120 listed, looks like I can get points and condenser for it. Maybe the same for the TC90. I do have a TC120 parts bike, suppose I'll crack them open and see.

    Welcome to the Hood :freaky
    You've just started, and you've already found some of the good roads! On the first big open Ketchum flats on the top, look to the West and try to find the daffodil smiley face somebody planted out in the field. They'll be blooming next month. When you take Ketchum all the way to the powerlines, you can drop down to Mill Creek on Hedges Grade. That one's a treat, and a good test of your rock riding skills :nod

    Howdy boys and girls. Not that my adv internet presence has been missed--I feel like it's been ages since I poked my head up, but it has been winter, sort of at times, and riding has been thin--I thought I'd peek out from hibernation. I'm hoping my riding opportunities this year won't be too limited given that a sizable chunk of my free time will be spent building our house out here, that Susi and I will then move into, becoming more or less full-time Gorge residents around the end of the year. Over the past 4 months I've been busy designing, getting set up with subs, etc.; and I just picked up my building permits a couple days ago. Below is a rendering of my design. Those who've been by my property will recognize the existing red barn garage that we've been using as our weekend place for years.
