Nice bike. I rode a KTM that a dealer buddy of mine had for sale. I couldn't touch the ground but it was smooth as butter riding over the railroad tracks.

The thrashed clutch from the yellow 80. Uneven wear, metal embedded into the shoes and a huge gouge...

Some pics from a few days ago.

I have been harvesting the only natural hardwood we have growing in the ditches to build some hardwood furniture for our new house we rented. It's pin cherry, choke cherry, and mayday cherry.

This one is a pin cherry tree. I dig them out stump and all by hand to get he nice hardwood in the stump.

Little Piaggio Typhoon is a real work horse. I had around 125 pound of wood, me at 170, the dog at 25, my cordless 20 volt Dewalt reciprocating saw, two battery's and some grocery's.

It still reached 65kmh on the way home.





Next morning the load is on the ground.



This one was around 7 inches in diameter. That's big for a cherry tree here. Most never reach more than 4 inches.



The day after, headed to a job site.



This is where my dog Swiper rides. When loaded with wood, he rides on top of it, or in my lap.
