"OVER THE HILL" (and seasoned) TRAIL RIDERS exchange

Recommended Posts

At the angle your landing and fact that that bike had marginal suspension... did you land it or crash
I wondered the same, either way I'd be puckering

 You know how it was.. You just went as fast as you could with what you had and so what if it bottomed out.

 

LOL, Remember when 6" of fork travel was an improvement?

Is it my Samsung tablet, or is TT as slow as cold molasses tonight?

Look at that Bultaco downpipe. My Dad welded angle iron almost the length of the bottom of that pipe. That thing was strong. That’s a little Mad Max twinge mixed in. That pretty bike also is the same bike we ride hard enduro. That’s just old school. You have one bike and ride and race everything with it. So it’s going through boulders and stream crossings and whatever. I still like that concept of one bike and you race everything and still can even ride on the street with it. Still for how beautiful that thing was it was a bummer pushing it off the track after it seized on a variety of times... 

Yea 6” of travel was great. What an advantage!!!! And it was.. It was so cool to get Ceriani forks!!!  Later.. It was funny when angled shocks just started. Wow it was like everyone busted out the torches and started welding up new mounts on the frame and bracing up swimg arms. Guys had the full stink bug with their new experimental angled shocked bikes as the pushed up to the starting gate. Cool!!! Cool 😎

Bunkman, please send that pic of you to Thor and ask them to make protectors suitable for us grown men. Please.

HA! How did I miss this?

I hear ya bro, story of my life.  It's hard enough to find decent shirts that fit properly....it would be impossible to find a chest protector that fits just right. I guess it's a height vs width thing.

I like that silver tank Suzuki

It was a 1974 TS 185.  The last ride I did with it was 2 years ago, to celebrate my 75th birthday, and to recreate my first ride in Colorado 45 years earlier on a similar bike.  Kcposty and I rode Cinnamon, Engineer, Black Bear, Imogene, and Corkscrew passes, and some side spurs.  And trailrydr9 and I rode Monarch Crest and part of Colorado trail.  I'll have to admit I cheated a little bit.  I used the 1978 DS forks and shocks for the ride to give a slightly softer ride and 1" more travel.  A whopping 6" on the forks!

Had a DS just like that

I loved that bike.  Hated to part with it, but it was beating me to death.  Took it to Moab twice to ride with Huskydog14, trailrydr9, and Jsned.  It did Hells Revenge, Fins and things, Poision Spider, Kane creek, Hurrah pass, the north end of Lockhart Basin, and all but the top switchback part of Soverign trail.  Also Guys trail, and the north 1/2 of Enduro Loop.  I'll have to admit there were a couple of rock ledges I let jsned and trailrydr9 take it up.  

I rode those 2 bikes for 4 years and they never let me down.  And the 1st dirt bike I owned that I did my first Colorado ride with was a 1971 125 Suzuki Duster which never let me down in the 5 years I rode it.  Those old 2 strokes were like the Eveready bunny.   They kept on going, and going.......

The 1984 250 Honda was just too heavy for me and trail riding.  The white Suzuki 4 stroke 125 was the biggest piece of junk i ever owned.

In the winter we ride Area 51. Small riding area, 45 miles of trails. But per capita some of the toughest riding on the planet. 

The mountains are the Olympic National Forest of Washington state

Is the guy in red suffering from the aftereffects of the drinking or the trail?

 I think he was fiddling with a fuel leak issue that has been plaguing his yz250.
