    I really like that Triumph of Meadow Skipper's. So cool how they blended a totally modern bike with the classic styling of the past.

    That retro/modern vibe has a lot to do with why I got a Bonneville. I’m really liking that bike.

    Yo H. - My buddy might sell you his Triumph Thruxton 900 w/mods. It would fit you perfectly for that commute to work, chugging down canyon, etc.

    Damn this made my day. Remember it all vividly; had a couple of the rev bike toys and the lunchbox. remember we'd saw off the tailpipes so the wheelie would be higher and go longer. Crank was a bitch.

    Anybody got an older Honda CT 90 or Trail 90? How do you like it?

    Thinking about getting one. They were originally marketed toward outdoors men. I have even seen them with rifle scabbards. Parts and what not are readily available and inexpensive. I especially like the high/low range gear reduction for off road riding. They look like a lot of fun.

    I had the Trail 70 as a kid and rode the heck out of that thing. I would try to get one of those but they are quite a bit higher in price and often used and need repair/replacement. Still would have one if I can find it relatively local and in good riding condition.

    I would personally get an XT250 or something like that. I think the 90 is going to be slower than you’d want, and not really very capable anywhere off road. I also prefer to have a gas tank to squeeze with my knees as opposed to the moped.

    If you just want something to putter around town then get whatever turns your screws.

    Old Hondas are stupid easy to work on, but parts are starting to get harder to find if you want to keep it OEM.

    So I don’t really get a ton of opportunities to ride the bike - work, parenting other stuff- but taking it apart and putting it back together is a different kind of fun

    Started with this - had been found in a shed and a carb kit, chain, sprockets, and tires later was working ok- but the rusty pipe had to go and it was blowing a bit blue

    I went up 2 in the main jet and I have a pilot jet and couple larger main jets on order as well. It is the “L” version which was corked up in stock form- the new headers and pipe had her dangerously lean

    Forks, shocks next - then I will prob have to find something else to tinker with....

    ...or I could break this one.

    Very nice. The new exhaust looks so much better and more free flowing. How did the cyl. wal[ look? Smoove?

    Laughing at the nice hydraulic lift in one shot, then an ammo can in the others...

    - - - - - - - - - - -

    I have yet to ride my moto this summer but I got the clearance yesterday from my Dr. ; not sure if I'm ready yet. New ACL is feeling good though, so soon.

    Anyone motoring into NW Wyoming this summer?

    Ya the cylinders were so nice it wrecked my plan. I had dreams of a big bore kit but my cheaper inclinations wouldn’t allow me to waste perfectly good cylinder wall. So a quick hone, new rings and back together - maybe next time she comes apart.

    Ya lift = bros shop (he has tools and skills and a wife who loves playing with the kids while we tinker - so it don’t get much better)

    2 races so far on this 350 xcf and I'm in love. Corners as good as my mountain bike.

    Got some high altitude ST this weekend, but some gullies still holding pockets of impassable avalanche debris.

    Took a 5 minute lap on my GoGo yesterday. Just testing how awkward the new ACL/Meniscus/MCL would feel.
    Not too bad, noticeable but doable. Hope for regular riding by August.

    Temps in the 50's in the AM, 70s-80s by pm. Good riding in the Yellowstone zone this summer. Crowds are chill too so far. Harry puttered thru the YSNP with no delay on Saturday.

    Nice work, and extreme jealousy on your mech skills. Must be nice to look at something that needs a bunch of work and then just do it. Bet she's a fun ride!

    Awesome to be that good with your hands! Wonder what kind of investment in tools that takes

    Thanks man I am actually very mediocre- but I can follow instructions.

    Like I am not much of a cook but I can follow a recipe.

    I invest in the oem shop manual and watch a lot of YouTube vids, read a lot of the forums and a couple books. I grew up on a farm and made a living with chainsaws for a while so have the basics of small engines.

    I am lucky that my brother is a 40+ year journeyman auto mechanic (that’s his retirement shop in the pics), and a neighbor who is a heavy duty mechanic - I try to do it myself and sometimes screw it up- but it’s good to have some folks to ask. For example - I somehow closed the gap on the spark plug putting the head back on - took me a couple days to figure that one out. Called in everyone I knew- finally one of the guys at the fire hall just said start at the beginning- hows your spark? Felt like an idiot

    But I wanted to learn so I am learning - doesn’t hurt that a single cylinder 4 stroke is about as simple a machine as you can hope to find. I am not sure I would try it on a more modern fuel injected machine - yet.

    It is just so satisfying to ride it now knowing the effort I put into it and that I could do it again if need be.

    As far as tools- I probably could replace everything I have for $500 at crappy tire if they had a sale - everything I need for $250. Just a multimeter and a couple torque wrenches above what most folks have for their mtb. But the car stuff is way cheaper.

    I am actually kinda looking for an old vw type III - or ghia or maybe a Toyota fj from the 70s for the next project - but a street bike would be sweet as well.

    One of those is what I could dig riding. Might swing by the Honda dealer on way home from Costco later to look.
