scrambler


Had to go downtown last night.. usually I wont even bother if I can't ride since I hate dealing with parking. Got lucky, it wasn't raining so I took out the old scrambler. I haven't been riding it all that much and lately have been half assedly trying to sell it. I forgot how much fun it was to ride. A 400x19 front feels like a motocross tire in comparison to a 300x21 avon . There's a short and moderately steep hill near my house with a lip at the top. It's good for a little air every time on this bike if you just keep the throttle on up it. I can't say the same for my boat anchor Panhead as I've yet to get even the front end off the ground on the same hill.

If I didn't have a negative net worth, I'd make an offer in a heartbeat.

hey t that thing would fly im sure...

I don't know about fly Matt .. with the rake the forks have they do more flexing than compressing plus they're only 34mm diameter..feel like they'd just fold on a hard impact if you really flew. It might be fun trying till you eat shit and bite the end of your tongue off. Than you'd have nothing to say for your self. Exthept..phuck why'd I do thith thupid thit phor.
