Hey Todd you could always go this route and save about $10k. Does pretty good off-road and in the snow with a lil air let out of the tire. Plus about 110 mph on the high-way. 135 without the sidecar.

True but I am digging the 2wd and the old mil look. She doesn't seem to be signing off on the idea so it seems to be a moot point.


For now...................

Well, your style is funny as hell. Looking fwd to the rest of the story!

Can you send me your track? RIding around the Sonoran desert in the Spring is DEFINITELY on my bucket list. Maybe March in a year or two.
Next time let me know.... I'll get you Bill's info and a nice place to stay in E Tucson. He also has a time share up in Summerhaven at the top of Mt Lemmon.

If you're actually wondering, it's a character from a cartoon called Metalocalypse. The whole show is a parody of death metal bands.

The clown in action (for your innocence I recommend passing ):

We survived............sorta

Reno B and two other Pax Engineers.



Steve working on his fuel system




So I wasn't the slowest one out there.........I past Steve (he was taking a dirt nap) and his buddies said it counted

So check out these 3 whoops..........



Steve road all three on just his rear tire. I was thinking to myself he's kicking ass today.......what I didn't know was his throttle was stuck wide open

Note the yellow padded phone pole.........look to the right at the fence.

Yep he finally had enough and bailed off..........

The aftermath






Happy to report he walked away

Very humbling experience. The track is a lot different when you ride it vice being a spectator. Here I thought I was doing pretty good getting a couple feet of air, when a rider flies past me and all I see is the bottom of his skip plate

That double is really just a long up hill and a flat table top.........some of the A riders where clearing it crossed up.

I did have a yute try and pass me up a hill on the inside. All I heard was ohhhhhhhhhh shit and then I felt his knobbie crawling up the back of my right leg. He dumped it and luckily I kept from going down with him.
