I'll hafta ask dad what it was but he used to race motocross with a street bike in the 60's. Modified the fenders and put dirt tires on it. He had a ton of trophies. Said the street bikes had bigger engines but basically the same bike.

Tim that bike would be slick set up as a flat tracker dirt road burner. I could get into that.

i have heard there were a few around. the only one i can think of off hand is the station just north of lake monroe on 446.

Can any of you Hoosiers help Kamakaziozzy with his photobucket? He is losing all of his pictures on his thread/RR called "kamakaziozzy goes to the city of the angels". Thanks ...

Great wheelie bike! Really wide balancing point. Only drawback was the oil pump would starve itself if you didn't let the front end back to the ground at least once every mile or so to let it take another slurp of the slippery stuff.

The good ol' '79 XR/XL500, on the other hand, could stand on the rear wheel for as many miles as you felt comfortable leaving it there.... oh, and even if you were a midget, you could still reach the ground

Street legalalizing?

Has anyone here gone through the hassle here in Indiana of making on off-road only bike street legal within the last year? I've been told that since our beloved BMV recently updated all of their computers that this is tough to do now. I have been toying with the idea of selling the XR4 and unless I'm lucky and find the next toy already done, it will most likely come to me un-plated or registered for the street and I'll want to make that happen. I've never crossed this bridge here, from start to finish, in Indiana and could maybe use a few pointers....

I did it about 2 years ago with the DRZ. I had to get a change of body style form from BMV,and have the police come inspect the bike(which he never asked to see if anything worked or if I had DOT tires) after he filled the form out took it back to BMV to get title changed from off road use only to MC.

I'm gonna bet that you may get by with a bike you've already plated,but if you buy one it better be already legal,I HATE going to the BMV anymore. You pays your money and...

Might make it viable for manufactures to sell even more race-based dualsports.

Or you can just use the ORV registration if you're just riding in the local counties(Not Monroe)

Beautiful day for some riding. Went by Franks where he demonstrated the proper technique of "layin er down". Sometimes, when thing get out of hand and beyond your control, you gotta lay er down.

Looks like way to much power!

I was showing off on my little mans 50 and put er down on the street. Tore one of my back pockets off and scratched our home phone up pretty bad in my other pocket. Good times. I didn't need that dignity I lost anyway.
