Wichita Jeeps is the shit! I crashed there once. Crushed a bunch of bones in my hand Sunday afternoon, drove home to Texas, and went to the doctor on Monday morning.

That's a Bultaco Sherpa T. "T" as in TRIALS...The suspension and steering geometry of that bike are for going slow and climbing straight up, not sliding sideways on a flattrack at speed. BE CAREFUL!!!
