IF all goes well, next week the wife and I will picking up her very own vinduro tiddler scoot for use on our own personal vinduro dual sport tiddler rides, as well as group rides with the T-Town Tiddlers.
For our "modern" dual sport rides, she rides an XT225 that barely fits her in seat height and is noticeably too top heavy for her. She's looking forward to the much lower seat height and much lower center of gravity, which will make the 20 lb lighter '73 AT3 seem even more manegable to her. OH... and she gets to retain electric start! A pic of what will likely become her "new" bike.
As for our own personal vinduro tiddler dual sport rides, those will consist of forest roads, county roads, paved back roads. Easy (and smooth) stuff. Just the fun of the outing and the fun of being aboard a vintage tiddler. Being on vinduro tiddlers makes a ride so much different and brings with it a bunch of fun that can't be had on a modern bike. (And vice versa. Biking is a wonderfully diverse world.)
1973 XL250... I wanted one back then
I bought the XL350 later on but I think the 250 was a better bike.
This one is nicely modified

I almost bought an Ace 100 way back in the day! I "think" I opted for a Yamaha 200 "Scrambler" instead, which was a mistake when it came to riding in the woods.
I corrected the Yamaha "Scrambler" mistake by trading it off and bought a brand-spankin' new '72 DKW MC125. GOOD decision! That DKW help me to grow my fledgling skills quickly. It was a really good bike for its day.
Still, though, I would have been WAY better off with the Ace 100 in regards to having a bike better suited to woods riding than my Yamaha 200 "Scrambler" choice.
FROM MY MOURNING JAUNT...
As I rode one of my little neighborhood roads that I enjoy riding when out on a quick jaunt, and upon seeing the fog I had been riding in was lifting, I thought this would make a cool scene, so I shot the accompanying picture.
I LOVE living here.
