I don't think Steve is rolling around in any grave because as soon as the Husky 400 became popular he parked those Triumph desert sleds. That Black Scrambler is a beautiful ( dirt bike ) though . I don't know if that's yours Griz but, that thing is cherry. I' know I can't forget off road history it all started with those Triumphs in the desert years ago for us California guys & I was wrong this thread isn't best dirt bike.

I started thinking this was the coolest dirtbike 30 + years ago and haven't really changed that opinion.

You mean 40 + years ago, my friend!

Ossa Enduro

This is the first radical departure in enduro/adventure aesthetics and design, this is indeed the true precursor of the rallye bike where form marries with function with utter grace, the Ossa Enduro.
This bike populated my dreams when I was a kid after I watched a movie where the principal character performed great stunts on it "Summertime Killer", that when I started dreaming of open spaces and virgin landscapes.



Some minutes of the movie "Summertime Killer" principal actor, Ossa Enduro , supporting actor Christopher Mitchum

Hello together,
here, the picture of a near to original 1981 Triumph Tiger Trail should appear. But I'm a bit suspicious about that appearance ...
Why I rate it better than Grizzly Bear's Scrambler (without talking his bike down in any aspect, I'm a dedicated follower of the Scrambler's thread in this forum!): the old yellow bike looks very good, it's got less than 180 kgs with a full petrol tank and all oil on board and so 42 bhp is enough! It's drawbacks? You have to limit your cruising-speed to 100 km/h or you start loosing bits and pieces of the bike ...
In case, that the picture's not appearing - what I fear, will happen - I ask anybody with a pic of this bike on her's/his computer to mend my failure.
Thanks a lot and kind regards, Bambi
PS: As I feared: no picture. A bit more of the story: I own one of these from new in 1981 and I fell in love with it much faster than with my wife (she accepts this term and laughs about it).

Ah yes...that would be the venerable Ossa Pioneer. My dad nearly bought a new one in 1968 (but he bought a Triumph Cub instead). I like the orange/black color scheme of the bike in the You Tube clip. Good stuff!

Two noteworthy mistakes in my motorcycling lifetime ...... painting one of those tanks (It was quite attractive in Blue Metalflake) and selling the bike. I can't fix the first but am working on the second.

40 years ago for me the Triumph Cub was the bike I lusted after. The idea that someone could ride a 500cc or 650cc bike was crazy, they were just too big and powerful

When it comes to bone stock bikes, I would go for the Belgarda Yamaha TT600S. I know that she is nothing special, but I like the elegant lines of this Italian Yamaha.



The Cagiva Rally Elefant is my all time fav in the modified class.
