Saw that. Yeah I would love to have a cl of any size.
I've been working on prepping my drz400 for a few hair scrambles and enduros. I am also going to ride the trans eastern trail in the spring with my dad and grandpa.
I might get out west some day. I would love to do a tx winch trip. If throw something to ride in the truck on the way. I'll let you know if that happens
Keep me posted on the cl build! Just picked up some parts from a friend for the cb125 he found at barber vintage fest. I missed it this year but I'm definitely going next year.
I'm really addicted to two wheeled inline vehicles! Back in Berlin I would mostly ride my bicycle around town and on small tours. And in order to get out to the cable I got a motorbike and started customizing it. By now the build is in its second season and second stage not beeing fully completed yet. Still a lot of things have been improved. Right now all is on hiatus as I'm spending a year in Canada - in the summer though I will be going westcoast to eastcoast on my touring bike which I'm absolutely looking forward to!
POPTART, that cb looks like you just rolled it out of a time capsule! sweet!
that crash was crazy!!! glad nobody got hurt! wish you could cruise through the forests that easy in Germany!
I wouldn't mind borrowing that drz for a weekend spin btw.
bachlonso, Yeah I am glad too. It takes something like that to make you realize how stupid you can be sometimes. I could have hurt someone, my brother, or myself. Riding like that should stay on the track or in a closed environment. We just got lucky. No glass, stumps, barbed wire, metal, trees, cars, nothing in our way. Took a long time to get out too. So after that I think I have good sense of how to behave out in public. Even tho the DRZ is sitting between your legs whispering "let me eat that road, lets get on with it, i was made for this " you have to fight the temptation and behave.
I will be trying to get out more on a track , or trail ride, so I can get that mischievous devil out for a run and get it some exercise in a place that is safe to ride like that.
2007-8 was the last time I was out on a track, or Enduro, so there is a bit that building up inside that helps me make bad decisions. Live and learn I guess.
You can see how a blind curve, off camber, gravel, and uphill, were the perfect combination for disaster here. Bike got light and you had no choice but to lay'er down.
The CB was in great shape aesthetically. Float was cracked and took me a while to diagnose ( it would run fine after carb was drained , fuel turned on , but after the slow leak the float would keep the bike from running), I soldered it as much as I could and finally replaced it with a replica. Going strong now. Its gonna be y pitbike/pizza-datenight cruizer. Can't bring myself to tear it down and make a cafe or brat. Im a sucker for an OEM , period correct whip.
