Old Yamaha ad

Cycle Guide – December 1981 These old ads are so great. So much better than the new garbage advertising agencies are putting out these days.

Dirt bike front suspension

Maybe I’m wrong in thinking this way; but I never put much effort into fine tuning the front suspension on my other bikes. For example, on my 74 Z1, I bought progressive suspension brand front springs, put them in with the pvc spacers… it was stiffer, so I thought, “cool, feels good, done”. I didn’t […]

Dirt bike goals 2018

We’ve been doing the dirt bike stuff for a pretty long time now. I’ve been thinking about what fun things we could do this coming 2018, that are slightly out of the ordinary. Different than our normal mc activities. I don’t want to come up with a crazy list though. I think there are two […]

IT250 conundrum

So things are getting weird. For clarity, other than popping out of gear which is the reason for the tear down, my it250 runs super crisp. Gobs of power. Compression is spot on. After taking the cylinder off, the piston looks perfect. Zero scoring on piston or cylinder. Rings also look perfect. So I didn’t […]

Your dirt bike is junk

I’m sure it is. Mine is. My IT250 suspension is clapped out like mikes moms squeeze box. It’s beat the F up. Since it’s the start of winter I’m taking some time to redo a couple things. My bike always pops out of gear so gonna sort the trans, but more importantly… do the suspension. […]

Sloppy Dirty Dirt

Went to Reading woods. Was as sloppy as a duncannon strippers squeeze box. Brown ruts and skid marks as thick as in Jessie Jays undies.

Desert Sessions

Dana and Ali were kind enough to let Francione and myself hop on the first part of their LA vacation to see Rick and Heather. I jumped at the opportunity because I knew what it would mean for us… desert ripping. Day One: -Flew in and rented a Wrangler for the desert. -Hung out at Rick and […]

Buzby farm MX track

Our good friend Greg Buzby grew up in south NJ on a farm. As a kid him and his older brother had dirt bikes. They made a MX track and enduro trails through the woods on their farm. Growing up on a farm must have been wild. So much open land to rip around on. […]

Nesco vintage MX track

It’s coming up in 4 weeks.  If you remember a post I made last year, this nesco event was pretty awesome. You get to ride your dirt bike on the race track and it was pretty loose with pretty much no rules. http://www.chinonthetank.com/2015/10/nesco-vintage-dirt-bike-track/ I’m definitely going again this year. A month from now. Who’s coming […]

Tiny Yamaha’s

This past weekend was another great jalopy shred in the Reading woods. The 30+mph winds made the drive up sketchy in our tiny Toyotas but it was all worth it once we got to the woods. I severely lacked at taking any good photos but sometimes that’s a sign of how fun the trip was […]

You Best Fuckin’ Belize It: Day Three

I awoke well before the roosters started crowing and the sun had yet to rise. I snuck out to see what I believe was my first sunrise over the ocean. The Caribbean sea lay flat like a sheet of glass. Very quickly the sun was on the horizon, then I headed back to the hostel […]

You Best Fuckin’ Belize it: Day Two

Morning of our 2nd day was the complete opposite of our previous. The sun was raging by 7am; it would easily be in the high 80’s today. I quickly forgot about the shitty Philadelphia winter I left behind, and was fully adjusted to the Caribbean climate. Today started with a trip back to see Emma […]

Chasing rain 

6 of us decided to ignore the questionable forecast and go dirt biking in Reading.  Trails were awesome. Rain held out until we were tired of riding so it all worked out. First time back there since last fall. Definitely a little rusty. Everyone went down at least once. Good times. @chinonthetank getting some berm […]

You Best Fuckin’ Belize It: Day One

Morning comes early in the tropics. The sleepy Caribbean beach towns come alive as early as 6am. We found ourselves up by 7 shaking off the fog of too many Belikin Lagers and copious amounts of Belizean One Barrel Rum from the previous night’s local Garifuna band session. It was our first night and we […]

Modern dirt bikes?

I don’t think having a newer modern dirt bike would be as much fun as an old shitty dirt bike. Hear me out on this one… I’ve been going back and forth with my friend Kevin about this. He likes to disagree with me for the sake of disagreeing. He thinks (and I’m paraphrasing here) […]

Nesco vintage dirt bike track

Man, you guys fucked up. I know it was slightly a late notice thing, but real big bummer you missed this. It was amazing. Here is the run down: Nesco vintage race track is basically some private MX track some old dude made in south east NJ. He replicated tracks from the 70s. It’s not […]
