    Which Bike to Buy?

    OK, this is a toughy. Both of these are still available at my LBS; I'm so torn. Do I go with the "King Kenny" laser-stripe vibe, with all the storied Jones Bros./Hurricane Hannah history or do I go with the one that evokes the desert sled of my dreams with echos of Inter-Ams past still ringing in my ears and the chance to be Malcolm Smith for a day every now and then?

    It's definitely going to be my cross country whip when I add it to my stable.





    (. . . And, no, I don't want a rigid, steel, singlespeed 29er)

    The choice is easy - number 1.

    I'm conflicted. You didn't help.

    Of course what I REALLY wanted was the Pursang; but I let that opportunity slip by a couple years ago . . . .

    Just get a pit bike.



    ^ This was the object of my affection but I ended up settling for an XR80R instead

    YZ or an RM 80 would be a fun litle pit bike indeed. Guess I should at least finish re-ringing the Mini-Trail and get it running again. Hmmmmmm . . . . .

    Oh yes I do.

    BTW, I just recently re-watched the footage (out on YouTube) of King Kenny on the TZ750 on the mile track at Indy - - absolutely mind-boggling ("They don't pay me enough to ride that thing."). They brought him and the restored TZ back to Indy last year for a 'reunion' ride (also out on YouTube).
