Wouldn't it be as easy as putting some knobbies on your XR?

Surely you jest. How does that meet my requirements of spending a shitload of money on a bike I can never sell? Get with the program. Sheesh. Idiot.

Should help you go faster on dirt and slower on pavement. That's a win-win
for you these days.

Here's my plan. Find an 883. Pay too much. Sell XR at a huge loss. Send 883 motor off for hotrod 88" kit for what I got for the XR. Buy XRX forks and shocks. Put on dual discs. Then have somebody fab up all the scrambler mods. Declare bankruptcy. Lose the bike. End up sitting on the corner making "potato potato" noises and peeing on myself.

Next time you encounter a homeless guy on the street, buy him a meal. You'll hear a story not unlike the one you just outlined. Every time. No kidding.

Just wish you'd choose some other manufacturer when dropping bikes for a big loss. I'm done with H-D.

I posted up this little beauty a while back. No liky the scrambler..? I've definitely had to pull the reins in on one of these.
I do think I'd have leg room issues on it..

UWatching The Wild Bunch filmed in Mexico by Sam Peckinpah and released in 1969. One of the truly great westerns from that genre's golden era. First time viewing the film since I explored the town and hacienda ruins where it was filmed. There's something delightful about watching soldiers patrolling along the top of an aquaduct where I walked and shot pix earlier this year. Sounds a bit silly, maybe. But fun.

So I go out to the garage to check air pressure before I go for a little ride, check the rear,
its sitting at about 10psi hmmm. So check tire and I see this little puppy.
Tire has less than 200 miles on it...




Anyways I have the Stop and Go mushroom plug kit and the Slime strips with rubber cement.
Which one ya think I should go with. Tempted to try the mushrooms since that's what I carry on the bike....

Try the mushroom plug. Remember to seat it using my technique.

Always fun to walk in the footsteps of history. Even if it's cinematic history.

Hope everyone had those dear to you close and safe on Thanksgiving.
