Hmm, sounds familiar.



Taken just before the Black & White showed up.



At least they were friendly.

The brain says "no", the throttle arm says "yes" I love it when I think with the wrong appendage. I'm in with the noisy XR650R. Let the echos begin.

Nice video, but, let's keep this an event we can plan on having next year, shall we? Besides most of those sidehacks would have a bit of trouble with the lakes, curbs, and other debris encountered.

Like the Sang Froid alleyway sweeper we should try to keep to 15 mph transits, and let's be friendly to the potentially shovel swinging residents.

I'll be inquiring about a re-power of a Honda CL100 based on your experiences.

I found E34th alley last night- it ends/begins in that field due west of the D-Mart parking lot at Hillyard, and has all of those things, plus tall grass, blackberry vines, and big ruts...

Fixed; and Most Definitly-

Back, years past, in time immemorial, I used to own and ride this thing in Eugene. And I had spent a day exploring alleys and backstreets in SE Eugene in the 24th through thirtysomething around Friendly and parts West and East.



I think I also spent most of that day riding out to Brownsville, then across 99W to JC and then out to Fernridge and back South using a route of back roads to Lorane Hwy. It darn near made the whole trip on a couple fill ups, (tank only holds about a quart and a half.) I would love to explore the more inner parts of SE Eugene to see if that route still exists.

Motomuffin did just fine with her hack last year.

Well, except for the encounter with Raving Bitch Lady, but that wasn't the fault of the hack.

I was referring to the road racing hacks in the video that Dan posted, pretty scant ground clearance for most of 'em.

So, I suppose floatation tires wouldn't help much.
