Well I sold my trail yesterday to an older gentleman from Albuquerque who was very happy to have it. He told me stories about riding his father's CT90 and hauling a deer out of the woods on it. So here I am again without a motorcycle and will probably stay that way for a while, to be honest with you the atv just makes more sense where I'm riding currently and my wife is able to come along to. So even though I'm technically not an owner or rider I'd like to hang around and occasionally post in the lounge section with my ridiculous observations if no one has any objections? Thanks to all you guys for being such a Huge part of my experience owning the CT125. Special thanks to m_in_sc, dmonkey and Sneakydingo for your knowledge selflessly shared, my best wishes to you.😁

Thanks everyone, I am definitely not off bikes for good, hopefully next yr I will be on 2 wheels again. For now in the area I'm in and the type of riding I was attempting ( if you skimmed through the couple videos I posted) it was honestly just to dangerous to ride those trails by myself especially crashing in the sand. A broken leg would be fatal out here in the right place. But hopefully I'll have my knee replacements done by yrs end and next yr be riding hard again. I do have to admit I never realized how much fun an atv was, way easier to load up with goodies to. You guys stay safe and enjoy the mighty honda ct125 😁

ATV's always have a place in my stable. I mostly use them for work, plowing snow, hauling firewood etc but out trail riding 2 days ago with my step son in many places he was having a much easier go of it on the Honda Recon, which is a 230cc ATV. Where there was a lot of rock, loose gravel, and sand he could just float over it where I was fighting it a lot more. Still all and all, for me, a motorcycle will always be more fun than an ATV. But I don't have the joint issues, at least my knees, hips and all are doing OK for 69yo. The main thing is just getting out there! Hope your knee replacement goes well..

Since you're thinking of getting back on 2 wheels in a bit and the penalty for failure is so high, what about one of those... Garmin InReach devices? The GPS tracker + SOS call for help devices. One of them has a plausible subscription if you're not interested in doing this year round so you don't have to waste money if you're only doing this like 2-3 months a year. ADVRider, bikepackers, etc. all have reviews and recommendations on them, and they all just depend on what form factor (large or small), what interface (requires phone or uses physical buttons) and what battery life you want.

I've been using the Zoleo satellite texting device for a few years now. I don't use it a lot, mostly just carry it along. Used it the other day to check in with the wife when I was way out of cell range. It also has the red button but only for real emergencies, like the bear eating on your leg..
