I think it's a modern Triumph Scrambler or Bonneville that's been modified a bit.


I was on a boat today.

I'd still like to have it. I have a soft spot for old Huskys and other old dirt bikes.
I knew one of you POGs would come along and ID that bike for me. A Husky auto...heard of 'em, never seen one in the flesh before.

I rode it in two enduros. DNFed both with no transmission. Other than that the bike was great and way ahead of its time.

I wonder if anyone ever finish a race on one?
And now I see why they didn't catch on!

I wish, but it's just a business trip. I took the ferry from Tsawwassen (peninsula just south of Vancouver, BC) over to Victoria and then drove up the island to Campbell River where my customer is at. It's a great drive to a great little town.







I would be able to see see the Alaska ferry (Bellingham-Ketchikan) out my hotel window when it goes past, if I knew when to look!

EDIT: I just looked and there happened to be a cruise ship passing by:

Nice pictures Ian!

Working @ Grand Hotel in Point Clear Alabama on Bucky's Bar equipment.

Talking to bar tender about those bottles of whiskey locked up beside the top shelf stuff.

Tells me the Louis VIII is $300 a shot glass and the person buying the last sho out of the bottle gets the empty valued at $800.

Well, digging around in my boxes of pictures for the reunion, I found two that belong here.

This one is a Road Toad that belonged to Reg back in the 70s.


A head-on crash in the woods of Quintete resulted in a totaled out Road Toad and a RM250. Reg walked away from this one, but the fella on the RM had pieces/parts of the Road Toad in his leg.


And this one is from the very first organized Monroe County ride.



I could only take one picture because the fella was in such agony.
I think his name was Shoemaker and haven't seen/heard from him since.
Showing up with a bike that won't crank, then asking for a tow.
Resulted in a broke foot and a ride to the hospital in a ambulance.

Saints preserve us from ourselves.
Amen.
This really hurts P-DUB 1 less Road Toad to make fun of.

Memorial weekend

Visit Shiloh Battlefield today.

A little over 151 years ago this place was a nightmare.
Lots of mass graves.
Of the 1728 confederate dead some are resting here:





Spotted a buzzard nest on the battlefield with parents and young in that tree.




Tommorow the trials event near Chattanooga.

Get some pics with Bernie Schreiber if possible you FF!

Of course, some pics of Toni Bou and Patrick Smage (the only US Pro competitor) are also in order.

Laugh

Went on a tour of the George Dickle distillery and got a autographed Barrel Select from the master distiller.


We'll crack it open at the next PAR event.


A few miles away and we watched the trials event.

Those fellas are unreal riders and most seem to talkin Mexican or Cuban,,,,I think.

Like magic, they go up impossible obsticals.

Like me,,,,,they wash their bikes when they get a little dirty and ride on what looks like Kenda 270 tires.

Not ONE knobbie tire to be seen anywhere:



More pictures when I get home.
Tomorrow, Lookout Mountain, Chickamauga.

I would be honored to sip a few "neats" with you.

Not ONE knobbie tire to be seen anywhere:

They keep their knobbies where they store the seats.


More pictures when I get home.
Tomorrow, Lookout Mountain, Chickamauga.
Looking forward to it.

Motorcycle Bike Scooter Scoot Rig Ride

I have been in some off line discussion with fellow "old timers" and its interesting to track the slang of how we refer to our "rides"!

I came of age when Motorcycles were called just that. Then somehow the advent of the scooters changed the slang and we started to call our motorcycles "scooters" (hey were so comfortable with our masculinity it never occurred to us "scooter" might have a sexual connotation) - anyway- if you were racing in the 60s and 70s you used the word "rig" or "ride". I would never call my racing machine anything other than a "rig". Ride was also used for your "car" so I always used Rig.

That went away somewhere in the 80s IIRC and the word "bike" started being used. From Motorbike I guess. Gang's were certainly called "bikers" and not Motorcyclist!

This is all from MY recollection of course. I suspect others would remember it differently.

So what do your call your current 2 wheeled machine?

I wonder what the Pro's call their machines now? Never thought about it until now.

Just some third glass meanderings of a POG
