heck a zrx12 is as much fun as anything on two wheels I think! But, as a purist, it really should be kawi green
Tim, have you ever tried small? Ever climbed up on a CT90 or a grom and tiddled along at 25 or 30 mph and checked out the sights and smells of flying low? I know you have done old because of the bikes you restored. I just don't remember you on a 100cc or less. Any interest?
I was thinking the exact same thing, after all it is West Texas. The sites are few and far betweenI wouldn't mind having a Z125 and have considered purchasing one. In college, I rode a Rebel 250, but Midland-Odessa traffic was a lot less crowded and not as crazy back in the '90s. The main problem with small-displacement bikes out here in the vast expanses of West Texas, too, is that they don't have the legs to be safe on our long, straight 75- and 80-mile-per-hour highways. Combine that with all the dangerous oilfield traffic (we actually have a road called the 'Highway of Death' due to all the oilfield-related crashes) and it's best to ride bikes that'll take the beans.
I do dig your vibe, though. Despite the fact that I was doing 100 MPH on my Bonneville at the end of the video, I really do enjoy how much fun it is to ride at low and slow speeds. There's nothing like taking a chilled out ride on that bike when the wildflowers are in bloom.
Not arguing here, just I use a different approach. I'd trailer an hour and then spend a day in an area. I'd cross some of those areas on dirt roads instead of going past them on the highway. I have trailered to Palo Duro SP and used that as a base for the CT90. It's not a replacement of, it's in addition to. Just saying.
By the way...at the end, in the garage, why do you have the flag half buried?
I can't believe you have not done Big Bend? Come on man!We've been doing a little planning for the channel regarding ideas for 2020. I always pin the places we've been on my YouTube account to keep up with how much ground we've covered over the years in the episodes. So far, this is what it looks like. It'll be interesting to go back and compare these images with the updated ones at the end of this year:
