HON-duhhh. Why are they so eeeeevil. Everyone knows that a proper dirt bike is orange and they all have 18"s on the back.


So I really like the pictures of Matt in his Carharts sliding out in the corner and causing a traffic jam. Way to go Bigtrailliemix.

Headed up to the cottage tonight after work to watch the snow rally. A few of my Gus Buster friends will be coming up as well. If the Evans boys make it, we are going to setup a ice track on the lake and run it Sunday.

Sure...so a guy hangs his bike up in a tree and it's deemed a a major accomplishment. I bury my bike at the base of a woody thorn bush the size of a school bus...thumbs down.

As for the pile up on the ice track...what can I say? I do all of my own stunts. And skills like these...heck, they can take minutes, possibly even hours to develop.

As I recall, there was a wide load, moving roadblock in front with two patient riders in the middle and one really fast and perhaps delusional impatient guy in the back on the gas thinking, WhooHoo, I'll get them all in one turn.

Hey, as long as I stay delusional, I'm sticking to my story.

Hi Guys! Looks like great fun, thanks for posting the pics.

I have been busy working on the Husky over the winter, pulled off the boat anchor of a exhaust and installed a FMF Q4, a JD Jetting Tuner, a new rear tire, flushed the brake reservoirs & hydraulic clutch. The tuner does a good job, but I am thinking of putting it on a dyno to get A/F mix just right. Has anybody been to LaBaron's Powersports in Almont? They do atv, dirt bikes, street bikes etc. If so, what do you think of there work? Thanks in advance.

I'd expect nothing less from a guy that rides a widow maker TZ 750 flat tracker. Rock on, Jim. You da man !

Oh no. I would never ride one without front brakes. I may be delusional, but I'm not crazy.

Here's a video of mine from a few years ago.
