    So, you guessed my name already. I like motorcycles. I like bikes. I like anything with two wheels really, cause I suck at skateboards and cars suck money.




    We ran into an odd character on a dualsport meet up on a motorized bike. He was having a blast. We were having a blast. It stuck with me:

    This is the kind of stuff we usually do, and have a blast at it:

    My drz is great for single track, commuting, gymkhana, all that stuff. BUT, the really hard stuff, is getting harder every ride. A xr250 isn't light enough anymore, and even a dr200 is looking 'big' for the nasty climbs and crap terrain. So here I am, considering motorizing my old mountain bike, or buying a real badass setup with a 180cc 2smoke and dual suspension, to lug my 40 year old ass around.

    There, that's my intro. Hello :)

    thanks dan !

    the first video is -not-me-, but was the fella that sparked some interest in this thing y'all are really good at, apparently. memory serves the bike was a no-name, with a pirannha engine, and 3 speed stick shifter. that jug was his fuel reservoir, and had cool cam skewers and even a windshield. sorry, i don't have more specifics. we were about to head out on a chilly morning of DS ride n camping in the talledega... ssshhhhh, secret location ;-)


    anyway, i'm gonna cruise around your threads a little and glean what i can. :)

    thanks again
