I'd give these RC guys, a close second though... Those Audi Quattros from the 80's (700+ hp) and the sounds of the turbos...pffffttt, I mean damn. Like one dude said, I'm sure there hasn't been a little animal crossing those roads since 1982. Today's ... more »

Of course, I meant no disrespect to the Isle of Man TT racers...

...the money and the equal skillset to race professional mx/offroad or rally car racing -- which one would you choose? I love them both. First time I saw a Renault rally car in person, and my best friend's Dad's Porsche 1957 356 B Porsche in 1977, I ... more »

Yep. Period. That's why I nearly sell all of my bike on ebay. Money talks, so then I don't have to.

Added reply in a thread Should I ride it or not? 2/11/2017 7:19 PM

Pretty much have two of everything: 2 (78&79) Maico 400 GS's, 2 (82&83) HVA 430WR's, and 2 (78&79) KTM 400 GS's. In each case, one was built for riding/racing and the other was built for garage showcasing. Sometimes I think it's such a waste

Added reply in a thread Would you keep or sell your vintage bikes? 1/27/2017 8:50 PM

Kind of in the same boat. I've got 12 vintage bikes (racers & a few garage queens that I've restored) 1 modern bike and a little Baja minibike for the kids in the neighborhood. My problem is everytime I finish riding one of these old bikes I am compelled ... more »

In no way am I a JS7 hater. On many levels, I dig this cat, and I kinda like his lil' bruh (minus some of the social media drama -- sign o' the times, I guess). I don't know what's going on with mind, body, or spirit...but I do know as former D1 athlete, ... more »

Actually the enduro and boondocker were separate models (minor, but differences nonetheless). I have some manuals and literature to verify this. Can't wait til I get this thing resurrected and on the road/trail. Every time I walk in the garage, I just ... more »

Added reply in a thread What is your favorite memory / experience from racing / riding ? 12/29/2016 9:50 AM

Didn't really start racing (vintage and district 7) until 2005. Have had a couple memorable harescramble races where I went down early and at each incident, for a brief 5-10 seconds I thought I was done for the day...And for whatever reason, I just got ... more »

1) York Swapmeet held in mid January in York PA. 2) Annual Mid-Ohio AMA event held in July -- this one is insane. Acres upon acres of vintage everything.

Thanks Tydog. 11 out of the 14 bikes get ridden year round. Maybe not frequently, but they all get ridden. The only two I will not ride, is my garage queen -- a recently resurrected/restored 82 Husqvarna 430WR; and my garage King -- 69 Maico 360 MC.

You're correct too. And, nah, you ain't full of it HB. You got a lot common sense and old school knowledge. Thanks for your good comments and contribution to this thread.
