Post em up!
It's been a long time since I rock n rolled but... I'm celebrating my regained sight after a cornea transplant with a 2017 CRF230F, can't wait to fly and hope I don't crash too hard. lol


ETA:
What will soon be "ground Zero" after I do some site prep.



Half way down the back straight-away on my track it's just under 1/8 mile long. One can go stupid fast but when this pic was taken you sure didn't wanna crash cause all that green was like 75% poison ivy. Took some time in early July and walked it with my hand sprayer and got excellent results using 2 4-D. I was able to selectively kill the ivy but leave the clover for the bees.

Very nice! I miss my last bike. 05 KX450F. I had it for like 7 years and had many crashes! One including getting hit by a cracked out guy in a truck. No broken bones though. Will be getting another one some day.

Was a quad guy for years and just sold my last one to get the XJ. So first one is when I did the PPIHC in 2011 on my 2008 KFX450R. Second was my trail quad 2009 kfx700. The last is an electric mini-bike that has been in my family since the 1970s when my dad and grandpa use to make the crates for the company to have them shipped to CO for the college kids. The motor in it is burnt up but I'm thinking of sending to a electric motor company to have it re-wined and go from there.

These belonged to my husband and son--the raptor was scary fun. My husband bored it over and made a few other modifications (intake and exhaust). Prior to these, we had always owned dirt bikes, yamaha(s) exclusively.

You will notice the "instructors" are all about that throttle...
Rule #1 when teaching someone to ride:
Show them where the kill switch is and how to use it!
Rule #2
Show them where the brake controls are and how/when to use them.

I'll have to break out the way-back machine here.

Heading out to the races. Probably '81? Me on the right (believe I was 14-15) w/ my heavily-modified 1981 RM100. We were a hyper-competive group but we were always friends first. Still friends to this day. Some of us for more than 40 yrs! What fun times those were...

Finally fulfilled a couple life goals... Bought a few acres with a creek and a dirt bike soon after. Can't get enough of it.

Just rolled 100 hours on this 2007 mint KTM 200 I have. Spent 4-5 hours up in the Summit County high country last week. Now I have to do a top end on it sometime, and rebuild the right fork as the seal is toast. I did the left one a while back.

Took the old '86 Fourtrax 70cc on the beach today. Local beach with no real attractions so they have no rules there as long as no one messes up the place. Fun times, rear tires were leaking air bad (dry rot). Need to get the bike out there next.

Thank you for sharing this... Reminds me of my YZ and CR days.

I don’t have any pics on my phone but I’ll have to find what I can. For now here’s a list of what I had. Starting around 1988.

81 ATC125M
78 KM100
78 PE175
87 350 warrior
91 200 Blaster
90 500 Quadzilla
87 Quadracer 250
81 RM 125
87 CR 500
03 Raptor 660
98 CR 125
88 TRX 250R

The two quadracers I kept for 20 years and just sold them a couple years ago to a good friend who is in the process of restoring them. The Fourtrax I also sold around the same time to another friend who will never sell it and if he does I get first dibs to get it back. I’ve been wanting to get a bike I can ride on road and off since I can’t afford a street and a dirt bike. Maybe something from the 90’s. I’ll be trying to find some old photos I guess.

Here's my bike and my XJ. Last July I saved up some work money and bought myself a 06' CRF250R. I've since put all new plastics on it with personalized number plates. Sadly, the engine had a lot more hours on it than advertised and I lost compression after about 10 hours of riding it for myself. Tore into it a little more and found out that the valves were shot, and the cam was melted in a couple spots. Lesson learned and it will be getting a full Wiseco rebuild this summer.

Grew up on dirt bikes then 4 wheelers but now with SXSs. Had a Polaris 800 S that I put 11,000 miles on it. Just got a new one, it’s a turbo with 168 hp.
