Off-road dirt bikes to beach

This has been on my list for years now. Ride dirt bikes from philly to the beach, as much off road as possible. Camp at beach, then ride back, again as much off road as possible. Well, we did it. Dana on his XT500 and me on the IT250. We met Mike A and Steve […]

Bridgeport trails

One side is wooded trails. The other side is a homegrown shitty mx loop. Def fun and close.

XT BOIZ

I’ve been sweating XT500’s for a few years now.  Something about a bike that can go anywhere, do anything, and not look like a dadbike (no offense to the DadZ1000 crew, Harley Cosplayers, and the new Bumble BMW crew) just struck a cord with me.   When my boy Cooney sent me a bike that was 20 […]

A Day at the Races

Woke up early this past Saturday and boogied out on the Sportster to the fairgrounds in Gratz, PA, just over the mountain. I was trying to take pictures of (no 59) Kletus’ van, but everyone kept getting in the way. The Rush Cycles crew from Jersey was out running their Ironheads. If you’ve ever been […]

Một, hai, ba, dzô! Part 3

Part 3: Cao Bằng to Hanoi Day 5: Quảng Uyên to Bản Giốc waterfalls -I got up before the roosters today and not cause I wanted to. A bit of the old ultra violence erupted in my stomach that brought me to the knees of the great porcelain god. There was no returning to sleep, […]

Một, hai, ba, dzô! Part 1

Part 1:  Hanoi to Ha Giang Jake, Radke, and I decided to visit the 2 wheel mecca of Vietnam. Most of my vacations all center around some sort of 2 wheel adventure and Vietnam always comes in at the top of everyone’s lists. I’ve taken to seeing it as a motorcyclists Hajj, if you will. […]

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 […]

Kz750 swing arm stretch | 2

First step in modifying… Take a good part and render it useless.   I’ve also found that one of my favorite bikes is based off a 77 or 78 CB750F that has a wheelbase of 58.9″. My modifications should give it a comparable look with the rear wheel placement. ****EDIT the wrenchmonkee bike description says it […]
