And then there's Alex Eischeid, who just wrapped up a solo journey from Prudhoe Bay, AK to the southern tip of South America on a mostly stock PX125 (with lots of adventures, mechanical and otherwise, along the way).

Racing at the "Vintage Days" a few years back...i signed up for the "mini bike" class. I nailed the holeshot while giving the rest of the pack the "middle finger salute" that they all deary deserved from all of the trash talking that i received from them at the starting line...i then promptly got high centered in the deep ruts at the next corner.
Fast forward the video to see a P150 wearing knobbys at minute :22, 2:22, and 2:28.
Note the fresh Axo Gear and the Bieffe helmet!

Loving the hi pipes to avoid snags, got any closeups of one of these setups? I once thought for a dirt bike of flipping the cylinder on a 2 port motor 180 degrees so the exhaust comes out the top and using a sidedraft carb to get it out of the way of the necessary exhaust plumbing.

Another one. Also loving the safety gear, they both have hats on.

ride safe Brother T and cheer

Here's what we've been doing for a little while now. It's on a mate's back paddock... the track could use some real work but it's good 'clean' fun.

Reminds me of my early teens. I had a Cimatti City Bike moped with 20" wheels. I found that BMX tires fit quite nicely, and had a lot of fun on trails back in the day.

Wish I had pics, but we didn't have camera phones (or even mobile phones) back then. Heck, I didn't even have a film camera at the time.

I was down in Sonora Mexico last month at a offroad Rally race (motos, quad, SxS, and buggies). There was a racer down there who was wearing a Scooter Help t-shirt. I asked him about the shirt, but he had no clue what it was about. He simply got the shirt from a friend who (I believe?) ran the website. Anyhow, I snapped a pic of him while he was going through the tech inspection.

If you had something with a trashed leg shield you could definitely make a great cut down like that, I like it also.
