I recently turned 60. I have been worried about what the future holds for me as to riding. When will I be too old?

Well, I've seen the future and it look bright:

Well, I finally got my radiator situation buttoned up. They're quite the upgrade. Here's a few pics of the new bling.

Mylers Radiators does some fine work.


Next to the purpose built guard that supposedly acts as an additional heat sink.


Guard in place and installed on bike.

Don't forget the camera. 😉


Sandy Lane Enduro in two weeks! A bunch of us went down last year and it was a blast. Fast flowing trails and no rocks! The toughest part of the whole race was a tight "sticks" section that seemed to go on forever but even that was fun. It'll be my first real ride on the 250xc.

Do they have a lot of snow on the ground in NJ? I'd love to go, but after the Snow Run, I'm all set with deep snow.


Life is good!

He WANTS an exotic, but he HAS just a plain old KTM.

Probably, after this weekend. But in 2 weeks I bet most of it will be gone. Lots of moisture will make the sand really nice. But beware of the ruts. They call them 'elephant slots' or something like that. When in doubt, cross them at an angle or they may end your day right there.

I wonder why it says this for Sandy Lane Enduro run?
PLEASE NO HELMET CAM OR GPS DEVICE.
If you are a new rider you need to take an
Ecea Test which is FREE

They don't want people finding these areas during the rest of the summer. N.J. after all. If these inner city bike gangs found the location of the trails they would go in droves and dump their garbage and tear up the trails with their posse of quads.
