California Back After 30 Years (Ish)

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

  Just getting back into things.  Next Month or so (and on from there hopefully) I will be out riding at Club Moto and/or Carnegie..  In the Tracy/Livermore area.  I will be the slowest guy out there, falling over at regular intervals.. But, if anyone has ridden these spots or will be riding these spots... say a quick hey.

 

  My body/health is in terrible shape, so... trying to get out there again for a while before I get too old to have some fun.  I've reached the point where everything on my body hurts... and I haven't even started yet... not good.  Wish me luck... Take care, hope to hear from/see some of you around.

lots of guys ride in their 70s,  get some seat time and your fall overs will reduce to zero, 

 

one word "ibuprofen".... and, the best part of dirt bike riding is the Hot Shower, when you get home after cleaning your bike and putting all the gear away.

Ride smart and ride often is the best advise out there.

 

Your health & fitness will improve.  Take it easy & ride often.

 

Dirt biking kicks the shit outta the gym.  If you can get a friend to join you, your enjoyment will go up exponentially  :goofy:

 

TT is a great place to meet folks that have the same interests.  Good for you!  You're already ahead of the curve!  :thumbsup:

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S.  14,000+ posts?  Nuts!  :p

I took up riding after about 25 years of lay off. My physical condition is worse but my mental health is better. Hard to beat a smile on the face

I can think of only one other thing I'd rather have on my face.  :devil:

I took 20 off and really could not agree more.

      So Im back.  Some of you might remember riding with me.  I had a 2013 500exe which was sold after I was Tboned 3 years ago.  Now Im on a new FE501 which is giving me clutch and performance blues.  Picked up a used 2001 KTM for a spare bike on a whim and took it out Friday.  Wow I miss the simple 2stroke after dealing with a brand new FE501 issues...maybe Ill sell the 501 and stick with a cheap 2t.  Man that bike is fun...even with my old 225lb ass riding it around.
      Anyways Im back with a decent portable Drone that Ill be using to get some cool footage in the wide opens.  It does pretty good with object tracking and object avoidance.  Very happy with the results.  
      Looking forward to a meetup.  Im a little out of shape, but working on it and my drone skills.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?
