Interesting what you can do with a spare Ossa engine, a good band saw and some paint/polish.

The smiley face sign says "I'm 50!".

 


This machine was purpose built to set a speed record at Bonneville salt flats back in the day.  It has two 125 Yamaha twin engines on it.  No word on how it actually did.

 

Probably the oldest bike that I saw.  I missed the show, though.

 

And now, back to our regularly scheduled Yamaha enduro show!

Enduro nut, JayB and I looked for you but tough finding folks in the sea of people there!
A few highlights for me (among many).

Riding on the motocross track late Sunday afternoon after races were done.
 

My set up in the family camping. Way in back, second to last row, top of hill. Actually found level ground.
 

Found a 72 U7E step through to fix up for a friend (if I don't forget to give it to him).
 

Rode on the Mid-Ohio track with David Aldana with both my 69 AT1 and my 76 CB750K. 
 

Got a selfie with the Wall of Death show star!
 

That barely touches it. See you next year!

Sorry MTALLEY i was drunk like the whole time and having so much fun that i totally forgot to get on here! It was pretty awesomely overwhelming to be honest. 3 days just wasnt enough time to see and do everything but im coming back next year and i wanna get there Thursday and probably leave Monday. Wish this event was more than once a year.

Enduro nut, getting there Thursday gave me a great selection of campsites. Leaving Monday let me enjoy the whole day Sunday and rest up for the long ride home. I'm also going to order the same weather for next year. It was perfect!

At Mid-Ohio, I met up with a bunch of guys from the ClevelandMoto podcast, which I've enjoyed for some time. They really know how to do Mid-Ohio right and have shared a lot of "inside tips" on their YouTube channel. Anyway, I put together a little video together for them and thought some here might enjoy it too.
