So far I have taught 4 neighbors how to ride and my wife is showing interest.
I am willing to do more if there is any interest. So far everybody starts on the small Zero electrics. My buddies (you know who you are) think no clutch (and/or electric) is for pussies. :duel:

In response, I have another slow bike as an option. Still no Kickstart but at least it has a clutch

Thanks for spreading the love. Every time I think I have run out of family members, neighbor kids or just strangers to help pass the illness along to I have new recruits showing up.

The 140 is nice. While I havnt actually “taught” anyone to ride on one. Ive given a few street riders their first offroad lessons with one.

Joey and his dad demolished a house and brought me the foundation

It was in a pile so I spread it out to gain access to some of the chunks

New Yamaha might come in handy. I will be surprised if one of you is not an expert in these rare birds. I hope it helps with trail establishment or reclamation

It is pretty rough but I got it running and working. I'm still working on finding the ultimate trail cutting machine

That looks great! Probably +$30K though.... I have some ideas about a DIY version.
