Yea vintage is 74 and back. Post Vintage is 75 -84 (most). Disc brakes are not allowed so 82 & up kx's are out.Water cooling, linkage suspension, etc. is all cool. You have further breakdowns in there by year.DLS drum's can be good with good setup...u can do stoppies on my 465

Linkage bikes are in whats called Ultimate class. Twin shock and non-linkage single shock(my YZ's) are GP(grand prix) class. Of course if you race age class then all PV's race each other which can SUCK, A 78 cr125 would be in with my YZ465 or a full-floater RM! Not dogging the CR but it wouldn't be my choice

I've said my piece on the video issue and I hope we can agree to disagree and disagree without being disagreeable, or something along those lines.

On to better things, lets ride. I'm out Saturday, but in for a ride Sunday.

so shoot your vids , ride fast or slow, stop and take pics of cow paddies, what ever, just don't expect me to judge you or try to change you.
it's just motorcycle riding people, we've always been outside the norm, so don't get so worked up!
too much bullshit for me!

So if I decided to change my last name to "O'Bama" you would not even flinch at this point huh George ?

I've changed the names of my videos to make some people happy, I will continue to record and post, but will do so as not to ruffle too many feathers... My "wheelie" comment on my previous post was not directed at you FBM, not at all. You're one of the last people that I would imagine to have an issue. I'm due to transfer in February and I don't want the things I've done in my stay here to cause problems for those who will remain here after I'm gone. If the tone of my posts before were harsh, my apologies.

Look, if you are use the bike for any kind of hiway use -commuting to work, or running on state or county roads between dirt areas, then for pure SAFETY reasons you should have Binkers (oh and actually use then).
Although I'm a total devotee of harmony, I disagree. Except insofar as self-canceling blinkers are concerned.

As to those that do not self-cancel, I think they are more dangerous to the motorcyclist than no blinkers at all. That's cuz when the rider happens to leave 'em on, they invite disaster.

Easy to say, "well, then don't leave 'em on". I say, let he who has not sinned cast the first stone. I have ridden behind good, competent riders who have left 'em on for miles, miles and miles, signaling to any cager who might be in the area an impending turn, which may or not be made.

I'm guilty as charged, and I've followed a few through miles of woods wondering when that left turn is coming up

Well, we were't afraid yesterday, but maybe we shoulda been. The road (Mill Pond Road) is just south of Thomasville, GA, and on the way up it was very dusty. On the way home, there came a Biblical thunderstorm that brought a plague on this GS, and on my motard-shod KTM. The GS has just nailed the wall of the left after a considerable slide. In the second picture, I'm beginning my on the seat, off again 3.8 mile treck out of the mud.

I've been out licking my wounds. I don't want to rehash anything, but I want to mention my encounter with FL LEO.
Inept broke his back & 911 was called to Blackwater. The state trooper was a complete dickhead that kept asking "why did he not see the log?". A ranger showed up as Inept was being loaded into the ambulance. He was very polite & professional. All he said was that it is perfectly ok to site see around BW, just obey the speed limit & be careful. He said they have a real big problem with crotch rockets speeding through BW. They were trying to "do something about them".
So, stay on numbered roads, obey all signs, & don't speed. No problem.

Can't you make the vids private & give your friends the password?

Excellent point and precisely stated Halmc--part of what I was alluding to in my previous post. When my DR was new/first year of riding, when I would punch the button to cancel the signal after a turn they would actually cancel. Lately, I have to remember to punch the button at least twice or they stay on. Can't see anything wrong w/switch, cleaned, lubed, etc. Damn expensive to replace. But yes driving w/ stuck blinker either means chance of car pulling out in front of you or they ignore bike blinkers because so many times they are left on... neither is good.
