WOW !!!! What a transformation.  :thumleft:

Thanks BOZO, I think this one turned out nice, if I can gain the courage to sell it, I'm hoping to make a nice little profit on it.

Howzit going in Aussieland?  You and your fam doing okay?

I really enjoy Big Oil's post and it is very sad to see him get banned time after time.

I think that it is his modus operandi to keep us intrigued  :pot:

Im back and better than ever WDs.  Life has been gurrrrrreat.

Im back to my roots, a proper dirt-bike owner again.

And not just any dirt bike, one of the greatest and most reliable ever made.

Unlike KTM dirt bikes, this one even comes from the factory with suspension components  :pot:  and a reliable engine!!

Guess what brand it is coot coot coot

Welcome back. Did you get rid of the BMW?

Still got that pig, she's in the barn on a battery tender.

I'm thinking of getting her out in the next couple of weeks and heading up north, it's one of my favorite times of the year to ride, Autumn.

Peak colors are in season currently in the Upper Peninsula, I'm waiting for peak color in the northern Lower Peninsula before I ride up.  :thumleft:

Tru dat.  :lol8: Their dirt bikes have a reputation for reliability, except their TPi bikes.

Their street bikes are hit n miss.
