Tales from the dark side. A thread for riders of other motorcycles

Post  paul on Wed 05 Jul 2017, 6:05 pm

First topic message reminder :

Due to the amount of friends on this forum who now own different model / brand , or type of motorcycles and who still frequent this site ,this is somewhere to post your stuff . I am sure we would all enjoy & even benefit  from hearing your tales . 
General banter & ribbing is to be expected ......................respect for other peoples choices is a must .
If this thread works , perhaps it can be made a sticky .............or separate title . Very Happy

1996 klx 650

Post  truck on Sun 19 Nov 2017, 8:04 am

Just to add my 10 cents worth, I've recently bought a 1996 KLX 650 to give me the ability to do dirt roads. 
Currently not registered, hunting plastics, speedo mount, chain guard,  road legal tyres and the dirt bike PPE.
Little bit excited as I haven't ben on a dirt track on a bike in nearly 18 yrs.
I'll add photos when I am on my photo friendly computer not this Apple . . .

You'll be right @Chook the worst part about the new dirt bikes is the plank they call a seat.

No problem Chook. I don't ride hard enough to hurt my self, I just want to be able to explore dirt roads and tracks every now and then.
Let me add, I'm not getting rid of the Bandit. Never had a bike that has as little maintenance as this and still fires up in winter or summer, handles like a tank, leaks oil, still looks fast sitting still.
I love it too much.

My body would divorce me - That's funny Very Happy

I grew up riding in the sand most of the time,  if you didn't go hard you didn't stay up, either way it was tough on the body
