I guess it’s been a while since the Soviets Russians did a big military laser weapon thing:

This was a sorta common feature of SUVs until the CUV revolution. My 2003 Grand Cherokee and 1991 Explorer both do this, but my 1991 Cherokee doesn’t.  It’s neat to see it on a rakish wagon.  Well found, HSV!

OM617 swaps are not terribly rare in both Toyotas and Jeeps. In fact, I myself have acquired/built all the necessary hardware to do this swap into my Jeep XJ at some point in the future (as soon as I free up the shop space).

Ahhhh... I’m out of good ideas, so I’ll offer this: I owned a Honda XR400R for like 20 years. It had plenty of power for running down dirt country roads, and enough torque that I could basically do everything on-trail in 3rd gear. It was rad and the only thing I ever did to it was oil changes and one new back tire. Read more

CRF250 Rally. Cheap, Honda reliability, just enough power to do stupid things.

Haha, yeah the low and long look is what drew me to these in the first place. The frame and engine details are outstanding, which makes my engineering self smile.  The power is pretty good, which makes my Neanderthal self smile.

It’s a cruiser, which is comfortable by nature, that isn’t limited to just being loud and slow. I bought it for the style and seating position, the speed is just a happy bonus.

Well yeah, for now.  I’m just thinking at some point I may want to do something stupid like spend a few days on this thing.  Might want bags for that.  For now, I’m content with day-trips.

Thanks!  I would have also considered a Victory Octane (sportier version of the Scout), but they stopped making Victories like 20 minutes before I got my endorsement.  Procrastination station, over here.

I can identify with being broke and “unmotivated”.  I will say that the MSF class was only $50 and was a pile of fun.  So keep that in mind!

Thanks! Drawback is that it’s hard to get matching bags. I mean, Indian will sell you shockingly expensive bags that perfectly match the seat, but I spend all my fun money on meat and beer.  First world problems, I suppose!

Michigan checking in. Still riding. I wear my snowmobile gear to keep the cold at bay. Snow won’t accumulate for a month or two. In the meantime, two wheels good.
