    I think you’ll wreck it. I think Ashley would love it! I saw one in person last year. Looks like a fun time.

    Tenaci-Wong just announced they’re coming out with an e-start 150cc air cooler 4T bike.
    I saw the prototype on Wednesday. Looks like it could be a real winner for beginners as well!

    @CDN Rick Have you ridden the Tenaci-Wong 200? I remember a pic of you balancing one at a bike show. If so how did it compare tuu the Cota 300rr you tried yesterday? I have a hard time seeing the suspension being as good as the fancy stuff on the 300rr but am really curious about the motor and overall handling as well as fit and finish.

    Not to be that girl but I'll ride whatever Yinzer gives me. Happy to have an opinion about it but not gonna be the thought leader when it comes to the shopping and the buying. Just tell me who to throw money at.

    Running is the actual worst. The only things I like about it are the heart health aspects, the sense of accomplishment it gives me when it's over and the calorie deficit so I can eat more. :dukegirl

    That shop was in a ratty building on a guy’s rural property. It was crammed full of everything you can think of. A lot of the inventory ranged from the ‘70s and ‘80s, with a bit of current stuff. There had to be hundreds of thousands of dollars there, at retail. Weird thing was it looked like someone turned the lights off in say 1985 and never came back. It was truly a time capsule.

    But he bought a shitload of tires. I could drive out there once a year from Iowa City, or later from Linn County, and he’d buy more than enough to make it more than worthwhile. He was good for at least a $25k tire order every February during the years I called on him. Sometimes more.

    At that age I was solidly into finding my Sasquatch and slid by with my 16 bike inventory in dads garage. Fortunately he had a 2 car garage and only one car. :thumb

    I almost bailed on riding today because of the winter weather advisories in effect and sleeting at my house but this is what the trailhead looks like.... it is starting to rain though.

    You're right. Mine were no doubt Hot Wheels because that's what the PX sold.

    Grreatwife liked it. She might be Hawkeye alumni, but she is from IL.
