Talking Picked up a "naked" bike - at a naked resort!

I just couldn't resist picking up a sweet little 1981 Yamaha 250 Enduro for an absolute pittance - with only 1555 miles. It runs GREAT, and is perfect for bouncing along the thousands of miles of fire roads we have in the west.

Soooo, I go to look at it, and the guy I'm buying it from casually mentions that he lives in a condo at a clothing optional resort and wants to know if I have a problem with that.

Well, not exactly, as long as I didn't have to be naked when I handed over the money - there's just something so WRONG with that. I mean, how DO you carry cash around without any pockets?

I drove my car over to look at it since it was a cold and windy day, and I STRONGLY considered stripping down and arriving in the buff. I'm sure it wouldn't have raised (cough) an eye brow - but the shrinkage did have me concerned.

Anyway, if you are interested it's actually a very nice property - and they have day passes available: Mira Vista Resort I noticed they had a MASQUERADE PARTY & DANCE on February 18th. Gotta' put THAT on the bucket list...

CCR 2013 anyone?

Yikes.

What about the obvious question: Did he ever ride it in that condition?
No photos, please...

Re: Picked up a "naked" bike - at a naked resort!

From their website I noticed that the guys at the bar have towels around their waists but the ladies were topless. What's up with that?

Embarrassed with their natural endowment?

Re: Picked up a "naked" bike - at a naked resort!

I'm trying to think of something really cute to say but all I can get mentally is....

Dirt bike.
&
Skid marks.

Nice looking bike though.
Probably a good thing that it has dark upholstery.

Ron,
Don't forget to post a photo of the latest Kontour seat. Maybe you could put a label on the back, replacing that Yamaha logo with a Kontour label that would look custom.

Cool bike but I'm not sure I would want to sit on that seat.

Funny thing, the same people own a "resort" here in Sacramento too.
