I was thinking it was lowkicks old DRZ, he sold to Orion in Tally a couple years ago.

That one came from the original owner in Jax with low miles and all stock. Went to Pensacola with more miles, and a list of upgrades. Was a 2001 IIRC. Hatch could give more info on it's current state, and odometer- Much higher than when I sold it.

If your two stroke starts running really well, stop immediately and figure out why, cuz something's bad wrong. Poo-tweet?

Nope. I looked around this evening, and nothing.

Apalachicola Nat forest Sunday

Had a good group meet and then take a few runs in the Apalachicola Nat forest Sunday.

Not easy but, fun for sure.............. Thanks to all the skilled riders helping us slower ones around the trails

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

We all know what can happen, that was not my intention with the vid. I watched the whole thing though. I look at it as educational material. It won't stop me from riding on the street, but may slow me down a bit. Probably a good thing.

Gimmie a shout next time. Would be happy to show y'all some of my favorite rides, or just bring up the rear.

Hopefully one can learn something from every crash, whether your own or someone elses. When I ride on the street, my anxiety is somewhat lessened by videos like this one. With few exceptions, each one of those crashes could have been avoided by less monkey-bidness on the part of the rider, greater vigilence on the part of the rider, or in some, both. Thanks for postiong Vico and when you comin' over?

BTW, my favorite is the dude with the sidecar at about 19:10 in. Lots of these incidents appear to be Russian -- where essentially all motorists have a dash cam. Interesting folk.

Yo, and the most terrifying thing I have ever done on a street bike is lane splitting north of San Francisco on 101 with a bunch of local crazies. Zipping along at 50 + mph between two columns of stopped cars is crazy -- as illustrated at about 21:40 of the video.
