Boy did I dig up some classics! Sadly I could not find any pics of the 1978 John Deere Trailfire 440 snowmobile that ignited the spark in my riding career at age 6, but these more than make up for that in pure entertainment!!

Feel free to laugh at me, cause I sure did!! toothy :clap: :funny: :verycool:

:lol:

I do not take the V-Strom in the woods although I did take it 4200 miles to New Foundland, Canada and encountered some dirt roads. V-Strom is more a light touring machine . I have the KLR for off road dirt & gravel fire roads. KLR still too large too for trails such as your DRZ400 might handle.

HA! It looks that way, doesn't it? I went down on the left at about 55 MPH, then the bike spun 180* on it's side & hit the guardrail with it's ass, then shot back into my shoulder which bruised all my ribs -- I mean ALL my ribs -- very painful! :shock:

The ruined credit was due to many many medical bills & no money to pay them at the time.

Cap, now I see the difference -- there is no way in hell I would have made a 4200 mile trip aboard the DRZ. I'd have needed ass surgery!! :lol:

Plus, that bike got hairy on the highway with the D606 Dunlop knobbies on there at anything over 70 mph.

After I decided that I should probably give up riding motorcycles, I got the urge to build a recumbent bicycle. This thing is about 8' long and a real hoot to ride. Of course, being out of shape, it was a real chore. Next came the motor, a Robin-Subaru 4 stroke. :idea: The dealer suggested mounting of the engine wasn't to my liking, so I made some "improvements" :!: Ya can't work on coal stoves all of the time :lol:

The attachment aaa '87 CR125.jpg is no longer available


That CR125 was an awesome bike. I had that same jacket from the early eighties, still do. I wear it once and a while until my wife starts laughing at me cause the snaps are about to blow and takes someones eye out :lol:

Looks like we had a bit of the same type history, one decade apart. My first bike was a spanking new CT70, when I was 12

I think that KH500 2 stroke triple is a timeless beauty, the CT70...not

That little 70cc honda was a great bike. It was a 4stroke. I had the HD 90cc 2 stroke. Phillip Rectecki had the Honda70cc. The HD was faster but Phil would ride that sucker hard and always keep up on the trails. They were the days! :D

Rusted parts can be replaced. People are paying real money for those bikes these days.
