Errrr. Got some catching up to do. Haven't even sat on mine yet.
Baja is in my very near future though, but June is too soon. Drats!
Enjoy and report sir!

Shipping update;
Tennessee based dealer stated early this AM that the bike failed to ship yesterday, due to an outstanding recall service that had not been performed on the bike. Said the parts were overnighted and expected on the bike today, in time (fingers crossed) to ship sometime after 4PM.
Might not make it here by Friday.
CRAP!

His was a Super Wombat Combat. What ever the heck that is.
Anticipation is hard to endure.

Regarding the Hodakas, had all three of the 125cc series.
The Wombat,(lights/blinkers/carry rack) the Combat Wombat (play bike that I raced and got a bunch of 2nd place trophys locally in the amature class, and a Super Combat (their pityfull racer, expansion chamber, reed valve, slightly better suspension) that was given to me by a neighbor. It was in really good shape and ended up giving it to a friend's sons who quickly trashed it.
Hodakas had some weird names. Road Toad, Dirt Squirt, Thunderdog,,,,,more that I can't recall at this time.

n00b ride this weekend

We have had a lot of new folks sign on PAR lately and I want to be sure you are not put off buy all the fastburn stuff that floats out...

PAR is more than that!

What about a n00b introduction/meet/greet have fun in Blackwater this weekend.

Mostly dirt road, at EASY pace with pics at watercrossing etc. Visit the lakes, lunch at Mickeys.

I am open either day and any time. Weather should be great.

Open to ALL... nows your chance to join in...

pappa wheelie - bring the Road Toad out!

I'll get on acquiring that "holzgabel selbstgefertigt homemade wooden fork plate" right away. Might work on my Hussie. Thanks Hatch.

Maybe Vic's got one.
I heard he has some wood for his bike...

Word of the day "Crap" may morph into "sh** yea!!"
3Fiddy may be delivering this afternoon after all.
My turn to "O-O-Orgasm"
Just ignore me.
