    Happy trails......................

    So here's some dirtbike bikes...
    My 09 Husky WR300 (was Glenn Kearney's spare GNCC Race bike w/ only 3 races on it)

    The littlest bike, a Suzuki JR50

    And the XR50 I just redid for my girls. I bought it new in '01, and it is now on its 3rd set of plastics, 4th or 5th set of graphics, 3rd set of forks. Engine is solid and has never been touched. It has been through the 4 oldest boys and is on to my oldest daughter now (7).

    Here's a pic of all the kids on a few of the bikes. Don't worry, the 2 w/o helmets weren't riding at the time, just posing. The daughter in the sparkly hat doens't much like to ride anyways, but the baby does. He'll chase the boys around the yard until they take him for a ride now. lol

    Not pictured are the yamaha TT-R90 and the KX100...


    Here's a project bike, which is currently stripped down for rebuild. We're hoping to get it going to Cam's first bike this summer, but we'll see. it is a twin-cyl 400cc 2-stroke!

    rc, good to see the family involved. I'm seeing less families involved in riding and it may be the cost these days. Bikes for kids are passed down to others all the time at a reasonable price but it's the gear that gets ya.

    THANKS. we've been able to pass down most of the gear most of the time. Gear (except helmets) is cheap if you know how to shop for it. Shop the outlets and closeouts (not to mention used sometimes) and you can get pants for like $20 shipped! None of use could care less if the style is a couple years old!

    Nearly all of us love riding. My wife used to not mind, but since a couple of us have gotten hurt, it kinda tears her up now... She's doing alright with it though. She knows its something we love, and really brings us boys together, and doesn't want to take that away from us. she's a good woman.

    FYI: I had my 4th son, Isaiah, riding that JR50 withOUT the training wheels before his 3rd b-day :O We love our dirtbikes

    urrrrggh!

    We keep the 4 wheelers at the lake and I just don't have time/patience to work on them myself anymore. Mine got tore up w/ ethanol and needs a carb rebuild. I dropped of the girl's 90's, wife's 200 and mine for the rebuild and then just general maintenance such as fluid changes, air filter 2 new batteries, etc and the bill came to a cool $1,000+.

    That's insane!!! I spent that on parts last year, but that was a top AND bottom end inthe KX100, top end kits for hte JR50 and RM65, forks for the XR50, and a slew of other little parts. It may take time, but your dollar goes SSOO much further doing your own work! For real, bring them to me next time and I'll charge ya half what the dealer would. We'll both make out!

    I know, I know. It's the $70/shop hr that kills ya! I simply don't feel like taking weekend time to do it and hauling them all the way home to tinker in my workshop would cost me more in gas towing them home & frustration than what the shop charges.
