It's better you take care of the stones. I hear passing them is worse than childbirth...but don't tell your wife...

I've passed 3 unassisted, blasting them is far better!

Wow. I had no idea this thread was still going. I was all ready to get back on the dirt bike this summer when I finished school when I was diagnosed with heart failure. So since then I've been working on getting my health back. I'm looking at getting WR450 ready to do some logging road riding until I can hit the single track again. And I'm also looking to get my CRF450 fixed and get it sold.

Wow... hope you get your health back soon. Glad you are at least going to get some riding in. The best shape of my life was when I was riding regularly.

I kick started the Blue Mamba a couple of weeks ago. Had too much going on this past weekend to get out and ride.

Got some beautiful weather and then some seat time. The Blue Mamba is still a arm stretcher!

Hi all,

Oldtimer checking in. I guess that word OLD applies to me now too...I just turned 50 about a month ago. More things that confirm oldness...I flew to Stillwater for DirtWeek (must have been in '02) because I had to stay in town to go to a doctor's appointment with my wife when she was pregnant with our youngest. That child is now 18 and graduates from HS in may. My oldest graduates from college next month.

My KDX is parked in the garage where it's been sitting since '06. And the last time I was on a bike was at the Perry Mountain 24 hr with Ivan. What an adventure that was. I do recall that we rode a KTM 360 that belonged to one if his friends and that there was a speed trap set in a field from 2p - 4pm during the race. I held it pinned and posted 77/78 mph! Of course there was a barb wired fence gate that you had to wiggle through right after it. Doh!

I just heard that my local club is attempting to host an Enduro on next year's SERA schedule. So, I may bring the KDX and my machete out of retirement. I mean why not? We're going to be empty nesters.

Something always fills the void and for me, I restored a vintage tournament ski boat (1993 Ski Centurion) and then spent a lot of time at the lake with the family. Plus I took a crack at skiing the slalom course. So far, I"ve managed to break ribs one season, and severely sprain my ankle this past season. In fact, back to the sports ortho I go today.

Hope all is well here. It was a great time and I often think about the friends who are still out there, but out of touch.

Best!

Thanks for checking in and the update Tim! DirtWeek '02 seems like a lifetime ago. Well, I guess it sorta is, lol. Good to hear from you and don't be a stranger.

There are worse ways to spend weekends! Quite the contrast between hot, dusty mx tracks & trails vs waves.

Well about a week ago my brother in law calls me up to go riding. I was more than ready but the bike had other ideas. The ethanol gas I left in it from the last time I rode made a mess out of the fuel system. Spent the last week soaking the carb and waiting on parts. Still waiting on some of the parts. I still need to tear into my sons bike as well. It's been sitting since he left for boot camp in Feb of 15.
