Just saying "howdy"! So what kind of bike trips yer trigger? If it "thumps" instead of "k'nings", you found the right place!

We begin to require the deep, soothing tones of a well-tuned thumper exhaust as well as the rapid escape it signifies.
Bytor, I admire your outstanding taste: My '99 also sports a B.D. kit with a Clarke tank and YZ seat and the goodies are just as dependent. Old Rush (pre-Signals) in privacy and at the proper max-volume can still stir memories of long-dead hair follicles.

Welcome to Thumpertalk.. It's amazing the info and friendship this place can provide.
But.. speaking of RUSH.. (you knew it was going to digress to this) Have you heard their latest stuff? Vapor Trails is a fantastic album. A few albums back, Geddy learned to sing rather than scream. After a 2 year break, Neil's drumming has gotten better than before. Alex.. well, he's still one of the best guitarists out there.. Like most of us.. they HAVE matured and relaxed a bit in their delivery. After being a little unimpressed with their last few albums, I highly recommend it. However it does take a few trips through the CD player to really appreciate it. I used a few songs as background music to a road-riding video I made.
Have you read Ghostrider? It's a book by Neil Peart about his travels across N.America looking for solutions to his personal grief. You'll find it an engrossing read.
The book is like a companion piece for the RUSH CD. Since Neil writes the lyrics, pretty well every tune off the CD related to an experience he had on his healing road.
so..there I go.. dirtbikes and music... it's a great combo.
