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) […]

Drinking The DT Kool-Aid

This week we added three more buddies to the COTT Vintage Enduro team. If you don’t have an old enduro you’re missing out. They need a little cleanup but are runners. The red DT actually has a wrangler jean jacket made into a cover with a serious fade. And if you needed any more reason […]

Jemima Mount – Pine Barrens

Jermima Mount is pretty much the only spot in all of the Pine Barrens NJ, that actually has mini hills climbs. We went and found it yesterday. It was really fun. People went down. I won’t name names. I did not go down. The pics and videos don’t do it justice. The hills weren’t insane […]
