Looks like I'm the (broken) baby!
A ripe 20yrs!

47,but I dont ride any different than I did when I was 27. I used to say, May the bird of paradise do the back stroke in your pre-mix. Now I say ,May your throttle position sensor always be high.

Do I qualify for this thread? I am 45 and been riding for 65 years, or maybe I have it backwards. I started on a 39 Indian Scout and I rode it in the 1949 Big Bear run. Best getoff I ever had.
Now I live in Roseburg, OR, raising Kane

Brian Meadows: I'll be one rider of 4 on my friends XR650R in the B2K. My section is from Catavina to somewhere below Ciudad Constitution. 530 miles is what they've calculated. I should be getting the bike in the after noon and finishing in the early daylight hours the following day. I plan on fitting a single 8" Baja Designs HID light on My WR 400 to practice night riding in the next few months. The desert takes on a whole new meaning when all u can see is 5 to 6 hundred feet ahead of you at 90+ mph! i need all the practice i can get.
