TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: MICHAEL KOLAR’S 2003 HONDA CR125

2003 honda cr125

“It’s a 2003 Honda CR125, but I am a big fan of the grand national Honda bikes of Bailey, Stanton, Bayle, and McGrath. It’s a stock bike with the exception of the plastics, custom graphics and hand made number plate backgrounds.” –Mike Kolar

PRO CIRCUIT TITANIUM CATCH CANS | JUST LIKE THE FACTORY GUYS

The popular catch cans that are secured on frames of factory bikes and our own Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race bikes can now be a works part of your own. Handmade from titanium, the catch can connect to the overflow on the radiator and is designed to capture coolant when the bike gets hot. The coolant will flow back into the radiator once your bike has cooled down. Its purpose is to maintain optimal coolant levels during a race. A catch can could be used for two-strokes, but is mainly recommended for four-stroke dirt bikes.

Please visit www.procircuit.com for more information on this and other Pro Circuit products.

MXA’S DARYL ECKLUND GOES CAMPING IN COUGAR BUTTES OVER THE WEEKEND

By Daryl Ecklund

I own the smallest camping trailer that you probably have ever seen. The family and I don’t use it much, but when we do, it is either the family heading to the beach or the guys and their boys heading to the desert. We headed to Johnson Valley to a place called Cougar Buttes. It is the home of the “King of the Hammers”. It is an awesome place to camp and ride. We only stayed a few nights but we rode at least a 100 miles with the kids sitting on our laps while riding. We rode up hills (some of which we didn’t make, yes with the kids on board), to the tops of mountains where you could see no end of the desert in sight. We rode to dry lakes and hard to reach destinations like Hercules’s finger.

The kids didn’t seem to care much for the scenic views, they just wanted to ride. Here my son Caselli and I are posing in front of Hercules’s finger in Johnson Valley. He wasn’t amused. 

If we weren’t riding across valleys the kids were either trying to catch big Chuckwalla lizards that roamed the big rocks or rode their Stacyc and KTM SX-E5 electric bikes. The only downfall is that we had to bring a generator just to charge the minbikes, but it worked out well.

The kids enjoying themselves in the desert on the KTM SX-E5 and Stacyc 16-inch. 

You can say Caselli had a good time as he slept most of the way home.
