MNNTHBX’s Pumped-Up Kawasaki Z125 Pro Track Tool

This is what a Z125 looks like on steroids

Forget the price and just think about how much fun this ultra-custom Z125 would be to rip around a kart track or parking lot.
Aaron Colton arcs through a corner at Josh Herrin’s race compound. Check out the video below. This Z125 Pro is lean and mean, and no longer green. The cases and transmission are pretty much the only stock motor parts left on this Z125. A MNNTHBX billet triple clamp supports a stouter, stiffer Renthal handlebar.

Tiffani’s Yamaha FZ-07 Tour: Mexico—Spiced by Variety in Landscape and Climate

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:00:00 +0000

Chapter 3, Part 23

Exploring a canyon grander than the Grand One; a mix of mountains, pines, snow and… cactus? Plus a heart-rending dog story. Kinda.
With the end in sight, Tiffany Is this still Mexico? The amount of variation in landscape and climate throughout the country is far more diverse than the wild-west desert I had always pictured in my head as a kid. On one hand, the grated balconies and bridges that let you look down into the canyon while hanging out from a cliff gave views nothing short of epic. On the other hand, the engineering in this country is still pretty suspect, and I sometimes have to question my life decisions. The roads getting around Copper Canyon were hit or miss (mostly miss), but Hollywood likes to make things even more difficult than they already are. I guess the FZ is as good at cuddling as it is at adventuring. At least to a dog. The hiking trails to Basaseachi Falls were almost as accessible and modernized as the popular trails in US national parks. If not for the dude hustling me for 8 pesos to park in the parking lot I already paid to park in, I’d probably feel like I was home. This is just a small example of the roads between Rosario and Basaseachi. I was pretty used to a lack of maintenance along the back roads up to this point, but the rocks and dirt and sand combined with excessively tight, blind turns made this an excruciatingly slow ride. Scuba diving is very quickly becoming one of my truest loves. I wonder how hard it would be to fit a bunch of diving gear on the back of the FZ?

Tiffani’s Yamaha FZ-07 Tour: Checking Off The Final Three States In Mexico

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:31:25 +0000

Chapter 3, Part 22

After making a pit stop (literally!) and joining a post-race party, we enter a wormhole that drops us off in Montana. Well, maybe not exactly a wormhole……
With the end in sight, Tiffany and Hollywood work at finishing off visits to the final three states in Mexico. Veracruz: Now here’s a bike you don’t see often in Latin America. Walking through the paddock felt just like home! An overwhelming majority of the finishers and racers in the Coahuila 1000 were small UTVs. I didn’t have the heart to tell them that motorcycles are still cooler, even if none of the eight riders actually finished. The only rider to actually make it to the after-party, even if he got a flat and technically didn’t finish the whole thing. I hope I’m still racing and making questionable life decisions when I’m 65! Did I just ride through a wormhole into Montana, or is this actually still Mexico? The cliffs and pine forests and twisty roadways were so spectacular I don’t even know what they can be compared to. You just have to go to Chihuahua and see for yourself. I must have stopped 100 times to take pictures, just because I was so completely stunned and excited by the change of scenery and the smell of pine. It’s amazing how six months of heat, desert, and tropics can make a simple forest feel so completely new again. Made it! For a place I had never heard of until yesterday, this is a pretty satisfying sign.

Tiffani’s Yamaha FZ-07 Tour: From The Gulf To Cool Elevations

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 11:00:00 +0000

Chapter 3, Part 21

Good food, bike maintenance chores, and we ride from the Gulf of Mexico to cool elevations—at long last!
Riding east and north away from the Gulf coast, we climb to elevations that feel like heaven. Veracruz: The city of palm trees, swanky food, diverse cultures, beach vibes, and…a constant lingering smell of sewage from nearby discharges. Well, it’s still Mexico. When phrases like “Oh, hey, I’m going to go get my bike fixed; you can find me at the tortilleria” doesn’t even sound strange to you anymore. Changing oil in all of the AutoZone parking lots of the world. The FZ was overdue for a little love. Now where the hell do you recycle oil down here? That checkpoint life. I get jealous of how easy it is for everyone who has the itty-bitty 125s around here to zip between traffic. I barely remember what it’s like to not have my entire house and everything I own taking up space on the back of my motorcycle. I will give San Miguel de Allende credit for its beauty, even if I still won’t forgive the cobblestones. It’s a shame the culture wasn’t as well preserved as the architecture. If they don’t have a heavily gated parking area, just about every hotel or hostel in Latin America will insist on parking motorcycles inside their courtyards, hallways, or lobbies for security. Some days, that ends up more ridiculous than others. What’s more fun than having things stolen off your bike? Finding a pinhole in the center of your tread with no explainable cause immediately thereafter. This one would have been pluggable, but with a llantera (tire shop/mechanic) in easy hobble distance, it made more sense to just get a 40-peso patch.
