    Nostalgic mini-bike

    Went in to my local Princess Auto (Cdn version of HF but nowhere near as expansive) to pick up a few items and saw this. Takes me back to growing up in the 70's when every kid wanted one of these or a Honda CT70. For $700 CAD ($510 USD) I am awefully tempted. Good thing I'm focussed on my TW build right now...

    I picked up a barely used one a few months ago and it was my gateway bike that led me into the dual sport world.

    They are a hoot, and when I only paid $400 for it I'm not a afraid to mess with it and mod it. I just met a retired friend of Swampfox yesterday who is taking one of these to the Gambler 100 mini-bike race in Oregon!

    Modern Mini-bikes can be surprisingly capable. Once came across a pack of 6 mini-bikes with full size adults having a ball on the shore of Lola Montez, this fairly remote lake. Until I saw them I was feeling smug about the TW getting me out beyond where the jeeps must stop.lola montez .jpg
