Not *that* kind of lubricant. Damn.

Of course - a big stack of $100 bills would be cheaper in the long run . . .

What happened to the 350?
I was really disappointed we didn't get to Tucson last winter, but we definitely will be there by Jan 5.

The DR350 is still going great and has done 85,000Km with no issues. I decided I needed a newer bike as I've got very limited resources for maintenance when we travel. The DR650 was a great bargain and saves me from hauling the 350 and the Dakar when we travel. I don't think I'll ever sell the 350, it's my all-time favorite.

I'll be up for any rides you have planned. I'll be in touch when we arrive.

Bob

Cathy/Skip,

We are headed out around noon to go on our trip. We are only going to Mammoth (Copper Creek) tomorrow because of the late start. You and Skip are welcome to come along. If you want to go, we can come by your place on our way out. Let me know.

Allyn

John Penton Story

I posted this on a thread in "Old School" but thought my homies might like to see it first hand, anyways here it is:

Hey all you vintage dirt bike lovers, here's your chance to make a great project come true. Below is a link to a movie trailer telling the story of PENTON and how John Penton changed the dirt bike scene in America. They are in the funding stage currently and hoping to generate enough interest to get this movie produced. Pass along the link to any fans of that era and maybe soon we'll all get to enjoy this movie on the big screen.

Any support or help to see this through would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Skip Page

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...le-lovett-rela

These are a great bunch that could use some help and the bike in the trailer at the end isn't all that bad either.

I'll clean up the shop area for Tech work and keep the backhoe on standby for emergency burials, but I think this is best handled as a get together without structure.

I'll turn the house into a bunkhouse and the new place will provide shelter for more folks. I hope to have elec. water and sewer in before the meet. If you require bedding I have some of that too.

We've already done some riding today and it'a all good. the Forest Service is bulldozing/grading some roads so they can be a little rocky, but passable. Tomorrow - Saturday - we expect the Tempe contingent and the Tucson folks to be here around 9:30 so we'll head out at 10 at the latest. The turkey is in the brine and the sourdough is awakening so I hope you'll help eat this stuff.

Wow......does that bring back memories for me. I always remembered the green tankers, but definitely always thought that the Penton was under-appreciated for sure back in it's day. Help me remember, didn't they use Sachs engines? Man it's been a long time.......

I remember the ISDT version with a fully enclosed chain.........am I remembering that right?....I know Bultaco had one with a fully enclosed chain.

Old dirt bikes bring back such good memories.

Crap......I'm gettin old!!!!!!

Yes it was a Sachs engine. I don't think any of the Pentons ever had an enclosed chain. I know the Jawa did.
