Yeah one of those red scoters would be nice. I haven't stayed up on the pricing. Could be a lot of money for a toy of some sorts.
My wife and I have been talking about a Jeep. We use to have a Jeep or two when we were younger.

LOL!


Ive got a 2013 Trailbreaker, a grail item from watching Mutual of Omahas wild kingdom in the 60's. Fugger will go anywhere just not fast. It's a specific tool where my Grizzley 700 or my Teryx can't get me.

That said I'll probably get two for the wife and I just because I have such fond memories of cruising the neighborhoods in San Jose with my great uncle and aunt back in the 60's.

Wonder what the top speed is ? They need a camo version.


I lost a Honda 90 3 wheeler that broke down about 45 years ago after dark.

Took me 3 days to find it and it was Red.

The absolute last thing I want in the woods is anything that blends into the woods and is hard to see and cost thousands of dollars !!

If I was to use one today I would want it to glow in the dark and have an alarm so I could push a button and it would go off and be found easily if it was lost anywhere !!

Don't have to be camo to be used hunting,I have had deer walk up on me while I was sitting on a running atv.
Killed deer that walked up on me while I had a fire going,Cutting wood with a chainsaw etc.

I have had squirrels all around me while I was wearing blaze orange and deer hunting .even walking through the woods.

Camo is way overated for hunting and has created a helluva money making industry for the makers of camo clothing by convincing hunters that they have to be camo clad to be successful, but as far as hunting critters goes it is not really needed in my view.


Faster horses,Younger women,Older Whiskey,More money

If they are like the old Trail 90s, they will last forever if they are taken care of even a little.

That's normal / traditional for the "toilet seat" (Trail) 90, 110, etc. My grandfather had one from the 70s that I inherited. They're not a dirt bike in the traditional sense. Dang useful though.

Tom



The 90's and 110's go for serious coin here, posties still use them.


Yeah, postie bikes do seem to go for pretty ridiculous money here. You can't buy them new either, only ex-Australia Post, though at one time there was a version of the CT110 sold for farm/agricultural use (CT110AG), and road-registerable, which had a dual range transmission among other things. They were not a bad little jigger either.

I just looked it up, and it seems that Honda is going to be selling this CT125 to the public here in Oz, but at a MSRP of $6999 AUD. Nearly three times the price of a new CB125, and dearer than a lot of bikes with bigger engines and more capability. They're dreamin'

As have I. Once had a doe walk with in 10 feet of me while I was taking a dump off the bumper of my bright red F-350 Diesel pickup. It was running with the stereo blasting.

I just meant the Camo versions would sell like hot cakes.

The 2 speed made the Trail 90 and even then is was way underpowered for packing game. We talked about this a while back and someone said this one has a 2 speed but Honda says it doesn't. Without that, it's useless in the hills.

There was a picture of the CT125 a few months ago which clearly showed a dual range selector lever. The CT 125 is what Japan and Thailand and I think Australia is getting while the version Honda is importing to America is branded the Trail 125 and doesn't have the dual range, just a bigger rear sprocket. At least that's the latest news I can glean off the net, most of the bigger cycle websites have some kind of announcement about it. Could be that picture was a pre-production model and none of them have that, there isn't a whole lot of info about that.

Supposedly this new one doesn't need a dual range since it has a lot more low end and mid range power than the older ones. At 8 ft/lbs of torque I guess "lot" is relative. wink Still, that dual range was a big selling point for the earlier ones.

Either way they're still going to sell a big pile of them.

Just like the Super Cub, the Trail 125 uses Honda’s semi-automatic four-speed transmission—there’s no clutch lever but you kick through the gears manually—and there’s still a kickstarter to back up the electric start. One disappointment is that Honda hasn’t adopted the secondary, selectable low-range gear that was a hallmark of the original Trail models, effectively giving them an eight-speed transmission.

In 1965 we got a new Honda Trail 90 for $378.

I was 14 and paid for 1/4 of it.
My brother was 12 and paid 1/4.
My father was 44 and paid 1/2.

In 1984 I bought a Honda trail 90. It had overhead cam and quick trail gear change.


2021 TRAIL 125 ABS
BASE MSRP: $3,899 Tooltip Asterik

+Destination Charge: $190.00


Expensive like it is not made in China with old Honda drawings... must be made in Japan.

That’s a deal breaker for me.

A friend of mine had a Trail 70 when we were kids. He wrecked it with me on the back one day and I had a burn scar from the muffler cover on my right calf for a couple years. 3 or 4 vents and a Phillips screw head.
I saw these at the Mecum auction in Harrisburg, PA last year and it brought back some good memories.

All they're doing is making the old ones (with a dual range transmission) more valuable...

To bad they decided to cut this corner. For me this lessens it's appeal.
