    I can show you rocks I rode in 1975 that only our Champs and top experts would ride today. Technology has nothing to do with it but approach angles. Only the few top riders that can ride on the rear tire only are truly riding a different style. I can still ride a ty350 in semi and get good scores easily. I can easily win Intermediate on a 1975 TL250.

    It takes more body English, which most modern riders lack. The newer bikes do everything easily. Sure it`s harder on the older bikes, but they are using the same size tires and wheels. Physics are exactly the same.

    The old bikes were heavier so you had more traction.

    But I guess old riders are heavier, so maybe it's a wash?:D

    Happy Thanksgiving to you as well Bob. We're waiting until tomorrow to hold our Turkey's funeral so as to attempt to comply with the PHO. Did a bunch of prep today in anticipation. Rode in the yard for an hour. It was a good day.

    Actually Garrett requested the Red as the Green I get is usually too hot for our guests. And I was eating homemade tortilla`s every day as a child. I was raised by a family of migrant worker`s on the farm.

    you’d have to appreciate Cheech and Chong

    “ C’mon Ice cream “ !

    As much as I’ve liked hot stuff , my alter ego doesn’t agree in the morning !
