All of these bikes makes me wish I lived in a desert instead of in the middle of a Midwest corn field. You just don't see this stuff around here

This belongs in here for sure

"when Men were Men" when you stripped the lights off your ride an added knobbies and went motocrossing or endouroing. Or when you added mud flap to the front of the front fender and you always carried a master link on the keychain. The attire was jeans and work boots with a pair of Wells Lamont leather gloves.

And at least one of your riding buddies had a Van and a full set of tools.

Those were the days.

I put my Desert Sled '66 T120 ('72 TR6 motor) in a local show this weekend. Still under construction, I haven't had the time to build her skid plate yet.

I believe 1956 saw the full width hubs introduced across the Ariel lineup even if HS models still called mk 1.

Not quite as old as most of these, but this was my first real desert racer. This was about '75/'76. 1973 Yamaha 250MX. Served me well for a number of years!

Ah, ok. Thanks for posting that. i have owned my HS for about 25 years, but never been able to get much information on it. According to the engine and frame numbers, it is a 1955 model. Here's a more recent pic of it.
