So I went and did it yesterday. Got a ride down to Salem and sacrificed my eldest son for this


Then I road 14 miles and had to talk with these nice gentlemen

Actually, they were pretty cool. I was laughing so hard when I got my helmet off, they just ended up letting me go.

Then I followed the recommended break in procedure by getting lost at the top of 311


I did not take this trail. I was tempted, but thought I should at least get 100 miles on it before I scratch it.


I am the luckiest man on the planet, at least right now.

After spending a little time with it i can truly say I am in love with my simple little 125 2stroke enduro. I challenge that anything more complex, heavier or more powerful takes away from the effortless non tiring purity of riding off road on 2 wheels on something like this as a playbike. I suspect this $2,000 bike will bring more joy and teach me more about riding well then any other bike I've ever owned. I'm gonna do shen 500 and other ds rides on it for sure. Plus working on it will actually be a joy.
