Thanks Kevin, great to see you too. I hope your family is well. After I rebooted everything is fine...I'll never understand computers.

Here's a pic of something kinda strange from Indy...it's a Chinese copy of the Can-Am Spyder. 250cc single.

Aaaah, the return of the Folan powered Highland. How long has that bike been around in various forms?

Dirt Bike and Dirt Rider have preliminary tests of the single powered dirt bike and the 1000 dual sport.

FI glitches sidelined most of the bikes.

The Megelli 250r looks like it would be a good entry level bike for new sport riders. Wish something like it was available when i was starting out.

They say the SS frames are lighter than aluminum due to a new alloy. And no deflection from use like Al.
