    I hear ya justintendo. The amount I have into my suspension alone on my 88 dodge w250 could've restored two of my bikes probably not including the upcoming cummins swap or auto to manual swap. These things make dirt bike restos feel much easier on the wallet

    Nice to see you're using leathers :) I went back to wearing mine many years ago. It doesn't hurt so much with them when you fall off.

    This is a picture from 1 of 22 Races I raced in AMA D37 Desert. I raced the 50A class against modern bikes and came out 6th on the year.

    Too much fun............. The bike is a 1975 CR360 with a GP tank on it for the fuel range needed for the desert.

    Steve... Thanks. Yes that is a '89 ATK 406, I also have a '91 ATK250. Those bikes are favorites for sure.
    The big Husky is very capable. King Richard's involvement is no doubt partly responsible for it's versatility.
    My riding buddy has a '84 WR400 which makes an interesting comparison.
