Vegas to Zion national park I’m spending the month of August in Montana again. Figured I’d do a fun little week MC trip with the lady on the way out to MT. I considered a week trip from Denver to MT but then thought Vegas to MT had more scenic stuff and national parks. So […]
I was in Miami and stumbled onto Curated Cars which specializes in vintage supercars. They were super nice, and let me come in and look around. Wow.
ok… so I rebuilt this bike again. Hopefully for the last time. I’m making this post to help anyone in the future. 2013 Recap Back in 2013 I had the idea to build a hotrod / high compression cb450. I don’t know why I had this idea. I was bored and wanted to play around […]
Tire machine. Pretty good. I’m into it.
Probably the last nice sunny weather day in all of 2020. Ironically, we did almost the same Pine Barrens sunny ride exactly a year ago. Will bought a newish crf250-rally which seemed to rip really well. We did a little more than 60 miles which was more than normal. Followed one of Mike Ashleighs routes.
Man, I still think the Yamaha IT is the best. Light enough to do all the tight nimble stuff you want. Powerful enough to keep up with modern dirt bikes. Can be pretty easily street legal. Can pretty much do it all except extended highway, def can’t do that. Can’t get enough of these old […]
Dennis’ spot up in northeast PA. A bit rocky here and there… but def a ton of fun. It’d be good to camp up here sometime.
On our week long off-road trip, Adam shot some GoPro still-frame video footage from the tight single track we did. Pretty sure it catches me taking a spill somewhere. Also, some random BMX videos I dug up from early-mid 2000’s. Good stuff.
A couple vids I had laying around from the SW Montana offroad week. Man, that was a ton of fun.
On our last day in Missoula Montana, Colin brought us over to his buddy Mort’s place to show us around. Guy was real nice and had a ton of cool stuff. Check it out…
Well. A month in Montana was great. I needed to get out of Philly for a little. Ending a month in MT with a week long offroad dirt bike trip was the best. Colin led us through a crazy off-road enduro adventure through SouthWest Montana. Such varied terrain. I can’t think of how to summarize […]
Colin showed us some dual sport trails that branch off of Blue Mountain, which is just south of Missoula. About 4 hours of dual/single track up and over a mountain which popped us out at The Jack Saloon, just south of Lolo MT. Ton of fun. Loose rocks are difficult on the XR650l. Especially steep […]
XR650L has turned out to be such a great bike. Last year trip through British Columbia the XRs did great, but noticed they ran pretty hot. So we asked Colin to install oil coolers on them while he stored them for us. We chose the Sutton xr650l oil cooler kit. Really nice cooler kit. Honestly […]
Look something like this:
Pocket beers to Love park. What else is there.
Kenzo woods. Get it in one last time. Nice knowing you guys.
Trip to Pittsburgh to Wheel Mill. Washed up for sure. Ilford Delta 3200 film.
– almost 50 degrees – super sunny and warm – Mr Bills burger spot around the corner off rt42 – most people there had off-road dirt bikes – spot was super fun – good hill climbs and loop around the blue hole
The film photos I posted months ago were my favs. I still have a ton extra film shots I didn’t think were great. Below are some unseen ones that were somewhat decent.
Finally got the film developed and scanned. Same exact camera/film setup I used on the Denver trip about a decade ago. I’m into it.

I’m rebuilding my 79 cb650 engine. The engine leaked a shit ton of oil from the rubber o-rings around the head gasket. (Common 4cyl problem on old Hondas.) My engine fins have always been completely covered with caked on oil, grease and dirt. If you didn’t already know, the engine fins are what cool your […]
