    With the legendary Killboy Dragon thread relegated to the dungeon lets keep this one focused on things like killboy/slayer shots of your ride, pics that illustrate what you might have to deal with riding up there, other local scenery (feminine beauty excluded). Organizing meetups talking about local businesses and other roads riding conditions etc is encouraged. I think crash photos are ok but let's leave it to facts not calling the victims names or mocking them (I don't like it anymore than you men do.) I also like Harley jokes as much as anyone but take that kind of stuff to the JM thread too please.

    Here is one from the Cherohala that is not 129 but a wonderful sign for a flatlander like me.

    Saw a nice bike yesterday. Tires were scrubbed right to the edge.

    EXTREME!
    That's taking it a tad farther than dragging a peg.
    More like dragging a TUSK.:oscar

    Are you a Honda Monkey buyer? I would consider it when the price drops.

    Thank goodness SloSolo2 started a new thread. Nice to see TC and Bar None. Hope the other local guys like Sumo find the way here.

    Had a blast hanging out at the bench and having breakfast with TC and meeting a few other regulars here. That 83 year old scrambler pilot is my hero.....riding the dragon and area at 83, talk about living the dream in the golden years. :clap

    I’ve been waiting on the price of a Honda GROM to go down for 5 years now and Honda hasn't lowered it yet.

    I’ll probably buy a monkey when they arrive here.

    Any recent GROM pics on 129? :hmmmmm

    You know when Hurry Cane had his, Wheeler ported and polished, tuned and piped that bad boy.
    He made it pretty strong for what it was.


    Bad corner right here.

    From Hurry Cane.

    I'm thinking this guy might of wished he had a jacket on when he slid his 2 stroker on THE DRAGON today.

    Will you be preaching on the mystery of internal combustion and grace through kevlar today?

    Those old Yamaha 2 strokes are so cool.
