I hate when people tie me to their motorcycle and force me to ride it.

That trip would have sucked balls on the Husky, don't you think? Stock seat?

How long were you guys riding around total? It was 2 weeks, right?

Anybody ever get the cat high? Post pics to prove it.

And one of his crazy driveway.

Some Chucklehead chilling inside and drinking whitsky.

FYYFF!

Keep the pics coming if you have more! One day I will upload the rest of the ones from our trek.
I missed that sunset. Nice shot. The driveway looks almost flat in your pic, when in reality it was basically a ski slope.

Chuck's place rocked. I wonder if he ever did the TAT?

Buy it and tag it if thats what you want. Hell they are cheap! I liked the one Eloy had when I rode it around camp. It felt similar to the trials bikes I rode in NM. Truly bad ass bike if you intend to ride knarly shit, which we almost always end up in. I am thinking I might have one for my next bike, have been for a while now.

Chuck's driveway would not have been bad, if there wasn't a switchback at the top of it! And all the rocks of various sizes were no help.

He posted in our RR soon after we ran into you guys. I will try and track him down, and send out a PM.

This is how you check to see if your bike is perfectly balanced front to rear. It illustrates proper weight distribution.

KDX's are cheap. Look for 97-06 200 or 220.

I bought a '99 a couple of months ago for $1k and it was farkled out pretty nicely.

KTM's are a little more $$$ but they sure are nice.



PK, looks like you found the balance point on the Schneider Strom!

Why the 97-06? And didn't you say once that the 200 is preferable to the 220? But yeah, I want to get one and tag it. Gotta have me a (running) two stroke.

I think the '97-06 are the better years IMO. If you happen to find one with the KX fork conversion, that's a plus because the KX forks have rebound/compression adjustments where the stock KDX forks don't.

200 or 220, either one will get it done. If you get a 220 and it has the stock piston, change it because, chances are, the skirt is probably cracked and about to grenade.
