And young? Also, where in the pecking order is a Boulevard Cruiser compared to a Mall Cruiser? Swamper LTBs are certainly no fun on the Blvd.

Hmmmm good questions! Mall Cruisers at least have to negotiate speed bumps but then again west Colfax has a few pot holes that could easily swallow an A1 Abrams..... hmmmmm Then there is the tire thing, lets see....my Mall Cruiser (MC) has 35" very aggressive radials and your BC has 34" tractor tires.....tough call on that one....

Obviously more discussion needed!

I dunno, Crash's cruiser has got a purdy mouth.

Near as shiny as the Chili!

It should be noted that Chinaman Gulch was in very good repair on Labor Day weekend. We found only a small amount of trash and rock stacking was minimal. Signage was good but I didn't see any signs noting whose adopt-a-trail Chinaman is. The biggest problem we saw was that there were several spots where a spill kit should have been used. Two old puddles at the squeezy uphill that sometimes requires winching and another at an off camber downhill section where all of the quartz rock is. I'm beginning to think that a spill kit should be required equipment for all vehicles.

So there it is....or at least part of it. Boulivard Cruisers have a "purdy" mouth. So Crash, Chili and Treeroot are now in a group classification! The "PMS vehicle" group. I like it! Who cares what the pecking order is now........with PMS it changes frequently anyhow!

Well thankee, but I don't qualify, what with a soft top, homemade armor painted with a brush, and a fuel tank whose capacity has been somewhat reduced from stock... just crawl underneath and you'll know what I mean.


Hmmm... my own Chinaman's pix. Looks like a tad more articulation than some recently posted 40 pix.
