Appears it hit in the 140/75 area. Reports say it leveled at least one house and overturned numerous vehicles, including a big rig.

The news is showing that it hit the Daki plant, which produces parts for heavy equipment. It looks like it tore through the plant and parking lot.

Yeah, they are showing on the news a business that manufactures heavy equipment took a direct hit, along with a truck repair shop got hit. Lots of cars in the area and a couple houses also. It crossed over I-75 and they said one car on the interstate was overturned from it.

I used to practice this type of riding on my MX bikes while growing up. Looks like I need a 300 to pick up where I left off.

I'd love to have a trials bike to play with and maybe even improve my skills. I could never handle a 300 like that.

I think it would be easier to learn on the 300. I have rode a trials bike some, but not enough to know what I could do with it. I'm positive the 300 would be more fun for me. I can have fun on a Z 50 though.

If I tried half that crap on my 300 I'd probably end up in traction.
