Beta 300RR. Street legal-ish to connect trails. Never had a real street bike, too dangerous! Haha

Although I've been on the lookout for a decent RD250/350/400 for some canyon cruising.

I have a GasGas 300XC buddy bike as well

Rode as a kid. Dirt bikes, dune buggies, swamp buggies, air boats, you name it.


Now I don't go more than 3 rungs up a ladder.

I have a RD 350 and if a blast up the road on it doesn’t put a smile on your face, there’s no hope for you.
The bad part, if you aren’t a good mechanic, it will make you into one.
Constantly adjusting the points and keeping the carbs in sync are a major hassle.
The good part, two stroke smoking some v-twin guy, reeeeeeeee!

I am very happy to hear this. Motorcycles are dangerous, maybe they will do us all a favor.

That explains quite a bit.

I ride an old 98 Fatboy and 88 lt500R Quadzilla. The quad motor is getting sent out this winter to one of the best builders in the nation. Kinda excited.

That has to be a ****ing blast. I have had a few Banshees and I can't imagine that motor in a small lightweight bike.

@zoltan I am surprised you can even have a two stroke in Colorado.

Yeah, back in '72 Gold Honda CB750...

Have a '75 Red one sitting in the shed. Haven't rode it for a few years. Maybe in the Spring I'll take her out again.

Is MX **** still a mod? If he is dead or something I would like to take his Mod spot.

It's not quite the power of a Banshee, think of it as a grandfather to it. First gear and second gear wheelstands are unexpectantly achievable, but the real strength of them are footpeg grinding corners, on bias ply tires.
Gas station stops every 50 miles are a bummer also.

It's plated. In CO you don't need blinkers. It's not much of a highway bike, geared too low. It's screaming at 60mph

Modern 2t's , if jetted properly,don't smoke much after they're warmed up. Plus i use Klotz 2t oil. Smells like strawberries, makes the MTBers and hikers happy.

You can plate almost anything here as long as you have a title, headlight, brake light, horn, and mirror.

First was a '79 ironhead sportster. Then three throw away hondas I got cheap, a CB 450, 350, and 250 in that order. The 250 was grey and the wife said I looked like Shrek riding Donkey on it. Looking at an Indian Chief Vintage next, but also considering a Scout.

My mileage went up noticeably when I switched to 91oct. ethanol free gas. Didn't affect jetting on my single, dual carbs may be pickier?
