    Yeah, the year I raced that Ronin my close friend Hot Carl died near the top in practice so I was a bit emotional after the finish of the race and I told a news paper reporter that the race committee operated like a toy watch. 🙂 They didn’t like that so they banned me from competing in 2016. So I built a Ducati for an Isle of Man racer friend from England and wrenched for him then I begged my way back in 2017 and raced a Spanish moto gp firm’s Buell XBR powered death trap. Thing was mental!

    I think an RC51 would be super badass. I don’t know how getting parts would be for an 1190 if you ever needed any. And a Honda would never even need parts anyway. I had a friend with a super sick Nicky Hayden replica RC51 who wanted to sell it to me for way cheap a few years ago…. If only….

    I have a friend that has a garage queen RC51 that is loaded with one off race parts. Such a neat bike but unfortunately never sees any use. I guess parts aren’t exactly easy to get for those either?

    The KTM 1190r is an awesome bike but for the money a Honda Africa twin is the way to go. Reliability and little to no maintenance compared to the KTM…don’t get me wrong I’m a total KTM fanboy here is my KTM 300 XC-w 2 stroke…an absolutely amazing bike on single track and desert. I’ve ridden Dirt bikes since I was a little kid and can honestly say this is the best I’ve ridden/owned.

    Oh wow, that is a totally tits looking KTM! I love the look of a built expansion chamber. I can tell you take pride in keeping your ride primo. Just to be clear though I was talking about an EBR 1190 not a ktm 1190 though I reckon that platform has some potential (maybe in American Flattrack next year?) but I too am a big fan of the Hondas. I love how the Africa Twin’s nomenclature is CRF1000 being that I have owned I think 8 CRF450 bikes. Being a mechanic I often see the worst side of bikes and not the good side but KTM two strokes are at the head of the two stroke pack.

    Yeah! Nice weather is here. I’m going to shred all weekend. Bicycles anyways.

    Wish I had a couple nice dirt bikes to rip around with my kids. Maybe I could trade a 64 beetle for some.

    Practicing my social distancing and getting some fresh air/exercise too.

Sounds like KB wants to take the family out to the desert this weekend to do some distancing. So I will be preparing whatever he wants to take out. This is one of those things! Love this bike

    Those Yamaha’s were great bikes. I had a couple of the early DT360’s. Still looking for a Baby Blue TY250 Trials.

    Where you guy’s go usually? San Rafel Swell?

    Ya, normally the Swell. But they have that shit all closed. Rangers sending people home… so we are going to head out west on the 50 past delta. Get away from everyone. Never any rangers out there

    I’ve been looking at the early 70’s husqvarna 400 cross. Because I want to be like the king of cool…

    That’s an awesome 400 Cole! I saw one just like that at the gas station the other day and the guy ripped a wheelie past the bug on the street 😯

    Out by Delta huh. That’s getting near my old neck of the woods. Rode a lot around Baker, NV and into Utah back in the day. My pops and I used to ride from Tooele, UT to Delta on dirt roads.

    70′ Husky bikes are near un-ubtainium these days.

    Cole, my Pops lives near you.

    He went riding his rZr out at 5 mile pass last week, said it was the only place open in the state. He also mentioned Little Sahara closed even to day use.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Bummer… I was wondering about White Wash sand dune area this morning…. 😎 I need a place to run the “subi killer” and get her dialed in before the big race…. 😎

    I think our north desert is still open for day use. If not, street tires and 801 Kimball should do the job.

    We will build it if it comes.
