My New Ride...

or, "Here You Go, Ken"

Just for Ken, a new avatar. My wife took a photo as I threw a leg over this new beastie today. It may be only 1 cylinder but I'll never have a problem flat-footing it on this little tiger, and if I fall... well, it won't be very far.

Joe would agree: This really is about my speed! After a few basic farkles I'll start thinking about some IBA rides with this little gal. NOT!

What a great idea. The small bike could be a spare in case the LT breaks down. LT not working? No problem -- use minibike to zip back to civilization for help. I could get Ari to fabricate a davit that would deploy it out of the top case. Yeah, that's it.

Thumbs up

I'd be willing to bet that little dirt bike has more capabilities than most of us street riders do. Awesome little machines!

Did you ride that up to Aurora last month ?

You could mount that to the back of the LT for a rescue ride.

Good Luck with the IBA's
