I have some sandles, plaid shorts, and a t-shirt... Isn't that all you need to ride a motorcycle?
Funny thing is I was at glamis years ago and we were camped 1/4 mile from the canal. Super hot day we decide to ride over to go swimming. I toss on pretty much that exact combo and my helmet. Make it a couple hundred yards from camp and somehow manage to put like the only stick from a bush in the sand dunes in sight right thru my calf muscle! That sucked!
Khris, I may take you up on that bike thing. My coworker is an avid rider, and he used to compete and all that. I should set it where we could all go sometime. Mind you I have NEVER been dirt bike riding, but I'm always up for anything offroad.
Jean would be pretty beginner friendly area. You can learn the controls and stuff on the lake bed out there and then move onto some of the dirt roads to get used to the feel of it. Start hitting some of the corners and stuff to get used to turning, etc...
I've been riding for 26 years. I've NEVER owned a truck! Seriously... NEVER! Hasn't stopped me, I've got a couple various ways to haul them.
Or like mentioned above there's the hitch hauler. I've had this one since '02ish. It's been all over baja and the southwestern US states. I've had the bike come off once but that was stupidity on my part blasting down a dirt road way faster then I should've.
ahhhh, it's brand new! Getting gas on the way home from buying it in Flagstaff, Az. Funny part is it snowed on my way home and by the time I got it off the truck and in the garage it was covered in mud and road grime and looked like it had been ridden! LOL
Crap, looking at that brand new bike picture really makes me want to sell mine and go buy another new one!!! Too bad it's like a couple grand right up front just to get it dialed in to my liking! Must not stare at that picture too long! LOL
man I remember when I first joined the military in 97 I used to drive from VA down to FL all the time. Right before the FL border off of 95 there used to be this one stop that always had gas for $.80 a gallon. Those were the days. Heck I remember back in 2003 when I was in Iceland gas was so expensive off base. One of the nationals let me borrow her car and I filled it up on base. You would have thought that I just gave her a million dollars. I guess gas on the base was about 1/4 of the price off base.
That picture with the gas prices would've been roughly Oct of '06 if I remember right. Late '06 for sure either way!
I do remember in highschool in the early 90's for me putting like $1.50 in my friends Nissan Sentra and that was enough for an entire nights worth of cruising! Funny part is a few weeks ago the guy in front of me at the gas station cash register bought some smokes and beer. He gave the clerk $10 and had like $2 and some change coming back. He told her to put it on the gas pump. After he walked out she's all "$2, will that even get that guy home or more then a couple blocks?" We both laughed and compared gas prices as a kid. She was elderly like in her 60's and told me about putting like $0.25 in the tank and getting entire nights worth of cruising and that was with a huge V8 car! LOL
We had a bike trailer and two Honda's when I was a kid. We pulled them behind a tiny Toyota truck. We had a 250 and a 150. The 150 was really fun to tear around on. I can't remember if they were CR's or XR's.
First bike was a 97 kx125 lived that bike, then 02 cr 125. Im going to start looking for another. More than likely something older so the wife dosnt kill me when i break it. Haven't rode in a wile so im definitely going to break something.
