Replaced rear wheel bearings. They were stuck pretty good but the "penny" technique worked great.
Went for a play on my SWM for the first time in 3 months .. also had a play on a Repsol 4rt
My dislocated knee was fine, knee brace was used!
Practice day with some guys from the club.
Music was great with that. Thanks for taking us along on a winter stroll through the woods. Crazy trials riders.
It came home to play and liked me so much it desided to stay. :)
just got my Sherco back togather i hope it works
something tells me that i am not going to be on the road a 530am (in 4 hours) to make the morning sign up
oh well i had better go take a shower
Go get em grizzz! It looks like the wind strom ran out of gas and its going to be a nice day............if they can find any of the ribbon. :huh
Brought it home. 1992 Gas Gas GT25. Needs some love aesthetically but it's mechanically sound. Several dealers have already given me prices on plastic so it's nice to know they are available. Those are old Yamaha fenders that are on it now.
Had a GREAT day yesterday actually being able to ride in lines on our first drawn sections for the May 4/5 2013 Tilton trials! I got to work in the novice lines on several sections, had a blast!! and our student, Liz, got to do her first attempt at real loop riding, in mildly muddy conditions no less, and was a rock star!
wish today was as ridable as yesterday. it's mucky, muddy, and thraetening THUNDERSTORMS in flippin february!
Good luck with the thunderstorms, hope they don't hit or at least don't last long.
Congrats on the bike, looks at least ride-able, and its always better to be working on the plastics than the engine so it sounds like you got a good one.
I stood on my bike again today. I'm saving gas.
You"re ahead of me. I went to a massage therapist trying to get moving again without a limp. :huh
We are making progress.
Thanks! And I agree I'd rather mess with aesthetics than major mechanical issues. It also came with new brake pads, new fork seals and caps, new wheel bearings and a mess of new spokes.
Congrats on your Montessa, it's a beauty!
Your wife buys that?
I have access to a piece of property across the road but I haven't ridden there much in the last couple of years. Since most of my "at home" riding is alone, I usually ride in my backyard or in the adjacent woods. Now that I have a local riding buddy (who wasn't available today), it's time to ride there again. About 8-10 years ago, my neighbor and I cut a ~1.5 mile tight single track loop for our dirt bikes and it's almost completely undetectable. I was able to pick through it a couple of years ago, but between new growth and downed tress, it's almost gone.
Anyway, I poked around in one open area where I like to play and explored around some other areas. There's a lot that can be ridden now and a lot that will just need a little bit of machete work. Some of it is barely passable now and completely impassable in the spring/summer. I'm looking forward to getting some areas ridden in before the green starts to grow again.
So far. $100/hour all at her place.
Rub it in why don't you! You had to add pictures to see what I was missing, didn't you?
Looks like a blast, can't wait for more warm weekends.
Extra parts are always a +. The guy I picked the Montesa up from had 2 extra filters, and all the parts needed for the change, 3 jugs of oil, an extra set of fenders, brake pads front and rear, etc. I could keep going but lets just say I don't need anything for months and can replace all of the most common breakable bits and not be out a bike... was a good buy...
