Carnage of yore

Its the season for family reunions on all sides of my family and some of us bring pictures to share along with stories.

Well, digging around in my boxes of pictures for the reunion, I found two that belong here.

This one is a Road Toad that belonged to Reg back in the 70's.


A head-on crash in the woods of Quintete resulted in a totaled out Road Toad and a RM250. Reg walked away from this one, but the fella on the RM had pieces/parts of the Road Toad in his leg.


And this one is from the very first organized Monroe County ride.



I could only take one picture because the fella was in such agony.
I think his name was Shoemaker and haven't seen/heard from him since.
Showing up with a bike that won't crank, then asking for a tow.
Resulted in a broke foot and a ride to the hospital in a ambulance.

Saints preserve us from ourselves.
Amen.

Something different

This morning I finished up 54 miles of the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina with my son. It was a great experience and certainly a challenge for this old guy and I'm happy to have done it, but think I'm more of a biker than a hiker.

Thanks, after a little rest today, I'm almost walking normal again.

I expect to be playing in the Rockies this fall with son #2, we'll be on proper motorized conveyances though.

Dunno what model Husky this is, but it looks street-legal, and fun



Altho that teensy little front drum looks a little scary

Yeah, that front drum screams adequate.... Sadly I had ear plugs in and couldn't hear it

Husky model

Looks like a '77 360 Automatic! Cool bike. They made them for several years in different sizes, all big bores.
Originally made for the Swedish military.
Very unusual bike characteristics, and solid, except when parts are needed for auto transmission.
I'd still like to have it. I have a soft spot for old Huskys and other old dirt bikes.

Ok hers my auto story.

I'm in Texas racing endures and cross country. My bike is broke but one of my riding buddies has this new 78 360 Auto.. just like the one in the pic (I bow to JM on the year)...
I rode it in two enduros. DNFed both with no transmission. Other than that the bike was great and way ahead of its time.

I wonder if anyone ever finish a race on one?
