1986 Maico 500 on Single Track

Recommended Posts

Great demonstration of clutch and throttle control. The 500 Maico in that tight of a trail reminded me of a cheetah in a cage at the zoo. It sounds like you have it tuned well as it started up with one kick. The trail looked pretty tough with not a lot of room for error on the left side for the most part. I have found pictures or videos don't come close to capturing how gnarly a trail really is. Glad to see someone is still having fun on such a classic dirt bike!

Thanks, ya it's a pretty steep drop off there.  The Maico is pretty easy to ride which makes it not so bad even in tight spots.   A CR500 on that trail would be another story!

He didn't mention that DC stands for "Dick Crusher". I have seen it crush the manhood of a few good men.
