left side kick. time to "break in" the other knee.
I still kick mine once in awhile just for shits and giggles. getting used to the left side kick while mounted was fun.

Both knees have been worked on. When I was racing desert, the starts are dead engine. My rt knee is the really bad one and I had to wear a brace. I was riding a 540 KTM at the time, so I could get pretty good starts with the left side kick. I switched to a KX500 and never got a good start again. That'll teach me.

I hear fluorescent colors are the new orange and black. Boe made me a special purple Generra Hyper-Color seat cover that changes to black in extreme temperatures. Creeper has some leftover Krylon fusion he said he would let me have.

That'll be a fun bike. I like seeing older bikes being ridden and used by thier owners.

Post a ride report with your new bike.

More like this:





And dirtrider, I will post a report, but it's gonna take me a while to get her back on the road. She needs some TLC. Engine seems strong and I was able to start it on the 3rd kick cold.

Well, you know what they say, "Once you black and orange, you can never go back." My new to me LC4. I forgot how much I love the LC4's. This one has way less vibes that my Adventures did. It is much lighter too.
