    Anyone else out there dream about going around a motocross track just one more time? I wonder if there's any way to do it without buying a whole new bike :(

    We have a "run what ya brung" class down here for flat track. It's hilarious.

    Man that would be fun. I'd probably be sore in places I didn't know I had afterwards.....:p

    That’s actually a pretty cool idea.

    I would enjoy that or maybe something more sedate like a trail ride through the woods

    Local tracks have practice days, or also Beginner classes for race days.

    What type of dirt bike do have right now?

    I haven't been on an MX track for about 18 months, but the last time I did is was on my clunker 1985 Yamaha TT600, not exactly a motocross bike.

    My son and I both rode it and took some video. You'll notice he's a "bit faster" than me in the second half of the video, as he is over 30 years younger than I :D.

    That was some cool stuff right there, brings back memories. I haven’t ridden a dirt bike since I quit racing back in the ‘80s. I got a tattoo from a guy a few months ago and he was talking about riding his new Yamaha enduro. He was 62 and it got me to thinking that at 54, I ain’t too old yet.

    just bought me a Ural this past week. Patiently waiting for it to be shipped half way across the U.S. so I can have some fun off the pavement.

    The future Mrs. asked me how she was going to get her car in the garage. I laughed and she got serious. now it looks like WE will be building a "Bike Garage." I'm good with that. She didn't give me size restrictions... :rolleyes:

    it's a '19 Gear Up. The blue is actually darker than the picture. Had them add several accessories, of course I asked for more than I wanted as bargaining tools. Looks like I will be getting more than I wanted. They agreed on my price then 2 days later they added a $500 manufacture rebate that just came out. Win!!!

    Yes -- I was thinking a nice endure like the old Yamaha DT-1 on fire trails. At my age I'm a wee bit brittle.
