Another side of PAR !

This is what I am talking about all the time.

You want to Adventure ride dirt roads up to Cheaha and beyond? PAR is the place. Madhouse is the daddy of the ADV ride.

Kip those are both awesome rides. I can really see your engineering in the trailer! KTM fender WTF! At least paint it to match!

As for the Ural! If you ever need someone to ride it PLEASE let me bid on the chance. That ride is just "a dream" type thing.

Im gonna stay in the dirt this weekend.

Maybe Saturday from Hutton with the n00bs???

Come over and help me install the winch, and I'll let you have it for the week .
The winch is suppose to be "plug and play" with all wiring, switches, relays, weatherproof connectors assembled and cut to length from the vendor. Just need time to install.
You up to it?

The trailer might get pulled behind the 350... so it matches both bikes, and orange might mitigate any "I never saw him" defense. Eventually I will paint it tan though. You are right.

The trailer is a Moto-Mule, but when I'm done with the mods, there is likely to be a complete different trailer sitting there next to it. Literally. It flexes and weeble-wobbles after sudden steering corrections. I've concocted remedial action, that will remain ultra light yet be much more stable.

You beat me to the trailer pic post Kip.
Such is life.

My wife and I just got home Sunday from a 4800 mile trip from Alaska bringing her parents motor home down.

Bike pics from the trip to come soon.

Sunday Ride???

Vico1 and others...I can't make Saturday but would be up for a ride Sunday morning in the dirt if anybody is interested. Explore some rides for Turkey Trot maybe or cruising with the noobs would be OK...I have a map of the Blackwater State Forest that covers everything North of the Yellow river that I could bring with me if needed to plan some routes. The earlier the better for this old boy.

Speaking of trailers - Come on Jeff show us one of YOUR motorcycle "Chris Craft" trailer... Another really neat personal effort.


KIP - Call your bluff on the Ural. I will PM you about time and place. Be more than happy to install what ever ya got for a shot at a ride. A bucket list sorta thing.

SR56 - Im in with the crowd. Sat or Sunday don't matter to me.

Come on n00bs its time to step up.

Quit talking about riding and RIDE.

They (Chris Craft) downsized by closing the Holland Michigan plant where I once worked, but I had no idea they down-sized their runabouts as well.
