I Want One!!!!!

Went to a party on saturday and a friend had his brand new 80 and was letting us all ride it and we had a pretty good size hill we were jumping and having a blast on this thing. I got to have me a dirt bike now. These things are a blast. First time on dirt for me.

Dirt bikes are very fun. Sometimes more than street bikes. I cant see the pic but are you sure its an 80? Nobody makes an 80 anymore, they bumped it up to 85 several years ago.

First bike I ever rode was a Honda 100. I owned a KDX 175 but rode the lil honda for a few days b4 riding my own bike. Needless to say the kawi may only been a 175 but it would pull wheelies in all 6 gears lol. The Honda wouldnt n it thought me to eat grass lol. Hence why I dot do wheelies lol.

Hey Trip you could take the 80 to the Gap and it ya miss a turn just go endoing

There are a bunch of guys here in town who put street tires on 50's, do a little motor work and stunt them. Last week I saw a guy doing seat stander circles and was scrapinf the swing arm.

I heard those things top out at 54mph with the big bore kit. I bet thats fast enough for the gap.

I am not looking to race or ride on tracks, I am more looking at trail riding locally. We have a group of locals that ride trails and know a lot of good spots. I won't be getting one anytime soon though. I got other things in the works before I can think about adding more bikes to the stable. A house is probably my next major purchase.

There is plenty enough trails in my area to keep me busy for a long time. We got a huge park near me. I got the Smokies right next to me, tons of riding to be had.

Tellico, Brimstone, Royal Blue, and Coal Creek to name a few.
