    2023 Honda Trail 125 by cmbthumper

    That is a way cool. Intro. For guys β€œOf a certain age” That bike has a visceral response. You looked to be immediately comfortable power sliding the gravel. I carry a 6” scar on my leg from a 55 Trail. πŸ’ͺ

    Motocross vs Adventure Boots

    I only ride in the sand; to protect my ankles. Goofy Footer, Thanks for all the riding and equipment topics. These topics help us question old habits.

    Adventure Bike Truth: Marketing vs Reality

    Truth is a dangerous concept. Once egos are engaged, stand by for conflict. We are just making the best of available choices.

    Sleeping bag or blanket?

    Note: Synthetic bags are significantly more bulky, last time I checked in 2006.

    Valve Stem Puller - Useful or Fluff ?

    Say Buddy, Will you change my tire for me? πŸ›ž
  10. Currently hovering at 489hr and 13200 miles. New cylinder and match piston OEM. Tim said valves were good. Starts easy and idles quickly. Has all the power I need for the sand We ride. Controllable power at walking speeds in difficult conditions. Spins up quickly. Love the 450. Regarding the piston fail: Best guess is old gas running high rpm in long washes. I have never seen sand in my intake as I clean it often. That said, the bike is running every week in the sand during the season. So a lot of exposure. It is not a Ride to the trail bike. It is an excellent trail bike. Isn’t that what every owner would say of their choice? 😎
  11. Thanks to the original poster for the heads up. Not many ways to connect routes in that area, so intel could help those planning. 🚧

    Ducati Desert X Review

    Thanks Randy, Quite a story.
  14. That road is tricky because of all the rain channels and many tight turns. For me, not a place to carry a lot of speed. As my eyes aged (71), seeing clearly the details became a problem. Note that the injury sight is in the shade. Transitions, I.e. in and out of shade at speed became a crap shoot. The good news is that there is help available. After three eye surgeries, the details have returned and my riding has improved. Plus, I feel much more in control. Bagstr, On the Trail.
