Thanks Seabee1, I hope you can sell your ar-10.

This is a lovely bike which runs perfect, no oil leak, no oil consumption, electric start, "kinda" lightweight (around 350 lbs) easy and cheap to maintain, low mileage and bullet proof, what else you can ask for?

I would like to take it with me to Spain, but the price for the shipment it´s so high compare to the value of the motorcycle but anyway I'll make to somebody else to enjoy it!

The little grandma it´s feeling younger than ever and want to rock!!

Thanks Eddy. Had a great time. Got my exhaust, jet kit, rear spring in the mail this afternoon. I'm on call this weekend and have to stay close to the computer, but I was able to get everything installed. Just took it for a test spin around the hood. Backfiring a bit. Wasn't really able to open it up to see full effects. Exhaust sounds nice. Rear spring is extremely strong. Can wait to get out and compress it some.
I am glad ur happy with ur ride, i'll keep u informed for a nite ride soon.

Blowout tire

A Blowout tire on my jeep returning from Overland Expo and riding the dirt bike around Sedona.
While driving the jeep carrying the bike on the back, the driver’s site rear tire exploded.
I have to maneuver the Jeep that almost rollover finally stopping on the side of the highway into a small ditch.



Thanks God I am alive.

Dangggggg. I guess you had to clean your pants and the seat after that one! You know, there's better ways to customize the side of your jeep!

Dang Levio, sorry to see this! But, better the metal than your body!!

Glad you are ok. That tire did a number on that poor jeep.

Take care Brother, Eric.

Exploration Ride, Monday, May 28 2012

Memorial Day:
I am going on an exploration ride NE of Happy Jack, passing Long Lake on Chavez Pass to Anderson Pass. I did some of these trails and they're almost B level type, some i haven't been on (that's why it's an Explo. Ride). Pit stop in Winona (food/gas). The way back is on Winona Ranch rd to Lake Mary, then 7 miles of black top and dirt again to Bargaman Park Via FR135a and other miscll. rd. Take black top for 6.2 mi & back on FR81A down off-rd to Camp Vedre via Fr83 & Cedar Flats. Gas capacity: Must have @ least 85 mile range beteween refuel.
I am staging behind Mcdonalds in Camp Verde 8:30AM .
It's a long a$$ ride so bring some food/water & ur Spot....

P.S. some of these trails are inspired by CrozB. I miss riding with u man...
Pm me for more infos if you're interested.

Night stalker trail

Out today doing a little exploring close by. Took Copper Creek across from Copper Basin to 89, great trail. Turned south on 89 a short ways & came upon trail 54. Headed west on it a ways until it got over this old guy's head on my XR650L or any other bike for that matter. I want to reccomend this trail to Terry & his crew. I assume it goes west to Copper Basin?

I put those rocks at the beginning of every cool trail to keep the traffic low. I enjoy my DR350 because it does the nasty and twisties with ease. No more 650 for me.
