Nope just a lowly old 250 Scrambler, that was being abused as a "dune bike"
In 1980 I believe, on the 47 Knuckle. Id switched it to foot shift when I first built it, but decided to try hand shift, so pulled the transmission, swapped out the lids, put it back together. I didnt have a stock rocker clutch, so just hooked the foot shifter arm to the clutch rod, the so-called suicide clutch. I got it done late afternoon, took a lap around town, thought I was good to go, and left on the trip to southern Az the next day (about 1600 miles each way). It went OK. I later got the stock rocker clutch, which is a huge improvement. :) I got tired of it after a year or so and swapped it back to foot shift with mousetrap.
You must have been more mature than I.
The technology of the camcorder and the level of camerawork aside this is a realistic representation of the Thursday Night Ride in Lexington KY. shot in 1984. It was much like this from the mid-70's on as well. We'd meet at this dealership , The Cycle Center and after the dealership closed , we still met there , the place then sold Hot-tubs.
If you stay to the end there's some burn outs and wheelies by a pair of CBX Hondas.
You folks had a good turnout. There was a lot of bikes there.
This was around '89 at the WERA Grand National Finals. I think that was Spokester changing the primary chain between races.
Riding my buddies 1979 Can Am. Around 1980. I think it was an MX-4.
Fox Air Shocks? nice
What a cool collection of memories in this thread. My favorite read in a long time.
Heres dad and I in 1986 on his DR500
Road trip on his XS650(?) in ‘91

Riding the Equator, awesome!!
Any pics down under??
Lol! No, that was my whole bag of tricks! Travis Pastrana has not called me to join the Nitro Circus.
Hold my beer!
I remember that bike and of course Spokester!
No one who ever met him can NOT remember spokester.
From 1970--I was 16 years old, with a summer girlfriend and my Sears-Gilera 106 SS.
From 1978--me and my 1976 CB 750 Four.
From 2012--With my wife (still married to her!) and our 2003 Ural Tourist motorcycle sidecar rig
(note the cool after-market reverse gear tank shifter).
Yep, that's what I'm talking about. I think I may have been there! Aerone's place?
At first I thought Mr. Pepper’s but you may be right.
Spokester speaks mainly of spokes and Sportsters. This is what I want to be when I grow up. I already have the bike and the beer!
This amazing guy I know on a 106cc Gilera punched out to 125cc with a Weber cam. Circa 1966. He went on to race Ducatis and become a master tool and die maker. He still has the original receipt for the bump stick!
