Looks like fun.

Even though I'm getting pretty good at tearing it down and putting it back together, I really don't want to mess with the fuel pump part of it again if I don't have to....

Don't blame you. If there is anything I hate working on shy of exhaust systems, it's the fuel systems. Between the fire risk, and the fumes that get embedded everywhere.....it's no fun.

Then again; I don't like hippo oil (love spell check-hypoid)either

I am not a huge fan of anything Chinese, but japan can't seem to put anything like this together. I am a fan. Short money and fun looking. 250cc of roaring excitement. With bikes getting so complicated it is nice to see someting basic.

That is a cool little bike. It's too bad more bikes are not as simple. It's why I'm drawn to the KLR and old school stuff like my R80g/s. Basic.

On the same note; the prices for a bike are nuts. I looked at a scrambler in the fall and it was abou 7k. That GasGas was a fortune too. If you truely stand back, it's JUST a dirt bike. Yeah it's got nice farkles, but you could have just as much fun on a ts250. I guess it's a problem with capitalism, as long as someone us willing to pay for it, the price will continue to rise. Me personally; I'll stick with old simple used and CHEAP

I have traveled, biked, and surfed in Central America for the last fifteen years and I am envious of them. You are right, hot, humid, and muddy.......I would give up one of my family jewels for a couple weeks of that right now. Those guys are living the life!!!

hi liz!

Aaron, hi!

That was a GREAT ride back from Recompense. We had a bit of everything, the Kanc, a snowstorm, great twisty roads, a nuclear missile, and beautiful views!

Do you happen to have photos?

Enjoy,



Liz

Just stopping in to say a quick hello. Haven't caught up at all in here so please forgive me.



Dave's doing the zipline here this morning before we roll. I'm sticking with my 'wrong shoes' story as to why I declined. Teva's aren't recommended and I'm not climbing up there in my mx boots.

Hope all is well.

I'd rather shovel snow than be here.
































I tried to keep a straight face. No. Really.
