Runways and Hundos

My 500 has been running pretty solid, but over the last few weeks I’ve been fine tuning it. I pulled the carbs last week and did a bench sync, which helped a lot. This morning I did a full tune up and then decided to take her out for a ride. I was on my way towards the ocean (I’m in NYC for those of you that don’t know), when I saw an entrance to a park and an access road I have never been on before, so I made the impulse decided to check it out.

My god. An abandoned airfield! Holy shit! Other then a few fisherman and some other motorcyclist I had the place to myself. What a great place to test out the cb500 full throttle (which I haven’t gotten to do yet). After taking some passes to make sure there weren’t any crazy bumps, I went for it, and I’m happy to say the 500 didn’t bog at all and had no problem hitting 100+

What a great ending to the weekend.

Yep – riding dirt bikes is still super fun. The IT250 still does almost everything great. Street ride over the bridge to get to trails. Rips pretty awesome in the dirt for its age. Then street ride home with some little highway. Can’t beat it. Tyler is an animal.
