That DR looks great. Go get it!

I'm family-busy the weekend of SBR. Specifically I made sure to schedule things so I could go to the GNCC's, and the SBR took a back seat to those.

However my shoulder still hurts from an off in the woods over a week ago. It is bad enough that I can not ride the YZ at anything near a race pace... but I can ride the DR... and could take it on a trip.

MrHix,

There is a lot of riding in So. Illinois beginning in the Columbia flats and south into the western Shawnee Natl. Forest. There are hundreds of miles of country roads and gravel levees, awesome D/S riding! P/M me and I can give you some neat routes. Sorry no GPS tracks, not that advanced.

Thanks dw,

I'll try and take you up on that offer soon.

I'm not used to being called names by folks that I don't know, but now that I think we're all Bozo's on this bus, I will press on. I also didn't mean to touch a raw nerve about having to ride distances to get to good riding. I know how much that sucks.

Cheers,

MrHix

My girlfriend used to ride a cbr600. She sold it a few years ago and has been content riding 2-up on mine.

While walking the dogs tonight we had a short conversation:

me: So Im thinking about buying another motorcycle. Its about half the size of mine, so you 'd be comfortable riding it.

her: Is it ugly?

me: [thoughtful pause] Is my current motorcycle ugly?

her: Yes.

me: Then yes, its ugly.

[end conversation]

Who here likes projects?

(not affiliated, just passing it along so I don't have to buy it...)

It's an 82 based on the photos I got from the guy of the stupid radiator that goes behind the number plate and the MONO-X swingarm. The guy had no idea what year it was or if it was air or water-cooled...

http://tippecanoe.craigslist.org/mcy/4429566320.html

"What I have for sale is a YZ125 dirtbike. When it was all assembled it did run. Was disassembled to rebuild but lost interest. Still have all the parts to piece it together. Brand new Dunlop tires. $500 OBO. May take possible trades. Text (765) "




So who's brave enough to take this on

(yes I'm missing some numbers on the left side, they met their end at the hands of our power washer)
