trading is not buying.
and the gasgas is hard to sell, so that was an easy way out
I just knew Endure had gotten you to drink the Koolaid, but I was wrong! I had a DR350 one time with Kouba links on it. That was a fun bike, especially after putting a Trakmaster II on the rear. Wish Suzuki had kept the six gears when going to the 400.
Is that what you call it when somebody keeps buying the same model bike over and over again?
That endure is trouble.
I was looking at the AHRMA schedule last night and it looks like there is trials events both Friday afternoon and Saturday morning at Barber this year.
Are you and @kennyanc doing both?
You guys should really try to get here earlier in the week so I can take y'all on a Birmingham beer tour.
The Brittens are out on track on Saturday at noon - I really don't want to miss my chance of seeing that.
But I want to do the trials on Friday - unless it's hot like hell again . @kennyanc ????
Yes, I had one before.... I sold it to buy the XS-hack project, which I traded for the Montesa (with Don)
Now I got the Montesa and the TL, and there is no real point for a 3rd trials bike. So I traded the GasGas for this E (again, with Don - who also sold me my DR).
So technically I got my bike back
(disclaimer: this logic may not be logical )
sooo.... I wanted to take the DRZ out, but the lowering links didn't make it in time
(too be honest: I really didn't feel like working on a bike after barely surviving @kennyanc 75th birthday ... )
@b00t by all accounts showed up and got to play like the time before he got domesticated...
stopped at @_anatic for a little construction update (I hope him and this future wife Joy won't mind me moving in...)
I think they are about to fix the ruts on Hurricane. Fingers crossed they only do the short top section.
less than a mile in on Hurricane Creek - felt a bid "odd" suddenly
First rule of German engineering? Eat
Actually, change the valve and eat while you wait on the pump.
It was not the valve - 100 yards down the road
hmm. Looking at that pic, I am wondering how much real rubber is actually on top of the damn superduperultraheavytube? Yes, it lasted all the way through the CO trip, it's heavy and stiff like hell, but it looks to me like it has foam inside - not rubber.
And someone made fun about my big bags ... well, I had everything I needed.
A few turns later I had plenty of time while laying in the dirt, taking pics and waiting for help to get that damn bike of my foot.
didn't take too long - THANKS!!!!
The rocks were not the issue... wiped out on the flat part
And it turns out, shrimp make an excellent ice pack for "not so happy thumbs" - that little get off gave me a bruise on the inside of my palm
I haven't had a flat for a long long time...
and one for good old times...
around 2010, before Ryan got domesticated (good to get you out and about again)
Great pics, We rode 3 days in the trails around Ouray in July, did Engineer pass and a lot of the same roads as yall rode then headed towards taylor park and did single track. its a different world out there and great riding!
Barber Vintage Days .... a little bit on the toasty side
I am still a little sidelined from the Hurricane Creek drop, so no trials riding for me .
But at least my bike did it. I offered a friend to give it a shot, he's brand new to trials. After the class Friday morning he competed Saturday on line 3. He came 2nd at the AHRMA nationals . According to PJ I created a monster
Friday playtime: @kennyanc and Sam
and the unfortunate get-off from Speedy earlier that afternoon. Laura aka @wawarides had a fantastic run... till Speedy decided to put a foot very very wrong. (Laura can fill in the blanks)
my bike did good
both did great
Graham on his Ariel (he won his class)
pretty much no suspension
and nice to meet you @Joyshtick - you should come up to the Wedge on Wednesday.
my DT had some carb issues... my fault. Opps.
apparently the Harley is hard on tires
Candy's new toy....

Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
