is Jos current bike its an 85 F2 YPVS It has an 86 enigne fitted The Weight
has been reduced down to 137 dry kgs He has made it a N model, Cos he likes
it like he liks his women Slimline and NAKED !!!
Joe has cut the rear end plastics down a bit right up to the light witch he
has painted so it looks like a double light. It was a cheep mod at les then
£50 and does make it look a diferent at a low cost. Joe plans on a few
more mods a boost bottle and reed spacers to make it a little more revey and
responsive and ofcourse to bling it up a bit with the shiny bottle.
There is no Class for an LC or YPVS to race in, in Denmark, so the Dalton's
do a lot of road racing on the small backroads around where they live. Sounds
a lot like over here with the road racing, nothing like a good thrash on a
hot summers day wooping some fat old Diesel in to the weeds. I like your style
page is dedacated to Joe and the Dalton gang from Denmark.
does a lot of offroading too (besides a lot of RD-bizz) with his RD thrash mate,
Killer, who has a XT 250, which he keeps, cause he weighs only 55 kgs, almost
too light to start his mono, skinny bleeder he he he
They have just as much fun on the offroaders as with the RD's they ride a lot
on the Jutland Westsea beach and in the 2 forests, Rold Forest (biggest in DK)
& Dr-lund Bigforest
Joe recons he is quite a racer and says he has never been beaten by anyone in
a race a bold statment. Me Thinks ill have to pay him a visit on my F2 he he.
He says he is so aggressive and eager to win that he scares himself sometimes.
Despite all that he has only crashed once on the RD's, When a Long John suddenly
came across " What ever that is"and a few times during the winter
in heavy snow. "So quight a few times realy he he "He would like to
have a few more RD's to add to his colection some time.

nine years and started up again summer 2004. He has had a few bikes :

How many people can tell you how many miles they did on each bike they
have owned, this bloke can and has.
is the Founder of a gang of lads who call them selvs the Dalton gang.
They live in Denmark and as far as i know are the only RDLC group that have
any regular meetings over there.Not every one in the groop have an RD but most
do and by the sound of it they are a grate bunch of lads that have a lot of
fun when they get together . Joe has is own web site http://www.sitecenter.dk/daltonbanden
. I cant reed a word of it but if you can reed Danish give it a look .
says he is especially found of the lack engine breaking from a 2 stroke , which
makes it possible to break hard with the gearbox, without raiscing the rear
wheel through corners and rolling in at 8000 rpms in 1st. He almost max throttle
in slow corners, that's wherehe says his frends on the 4 cyl 4 strokes are sadly
left behind. They also weighs too much Big fat heiry arsed 4 strokes Diesels
just make me largh.
Joe is signed on as Joe Dalton in the chatroom and says he is allways up for
a chin wag.
is Joe's old LC2
was Joe's one and only LC
is KILLER'S Brazilion 350R . It is fitted with a set of Micron GP pipes. Joe
and Killer have been out quight a few times this year for a thrash, but some
how i dont see old Killer keeping up with Joe do you !!?
all the gang have an lc or valve in there mc club any one is welcome. That means
some spectacular meetings with GXSR 400's GSX-R 400's, RGV's, TZR 250 and so
on. Below are some who do have RD's.
The gang is growing but here are the Daltons at the time of this page.
Joe -age 43
Leader of the pack - prez & founder of the club
Joe never rides alone allways always together with at least one more of his
RD pals, usualy hisbest pall Killer from the gang. The record so far is 4 RD's
together at one time. Joe would like to double this number, at least in 2006.
with a meet some time.
Gisling, age 40
The one who provides the gang with the hottest links to RD-stuff (he found this
site so hes cool in my book) He has spent the most of his biketime on his 2
other bikes, RD 125 LC & Suzuki RG 250 Gamma - but recently got himself
a YPVS, which was be stripped down during the winterof 05 for a heavy weight
reduction and some engine mods .
Dalton-name: Burger, age 31, At just over 16st not a light waight
rider, but by all acounts a quick one.Since droping 2 down on the front sprocket
- now he lifts the front wheel in 3ed. just by opening the throttle
Also got himself an old Sukki DR 500 to dig some dirt with. Not got a pic
of this chap but lets face it its the bikes we want to see, he he he . Looks
like killers bike behined his.
Killer, age 39
Always rides together with Joe - sometimes on the XT 250's. His 350R can be
seen above with Micron GP pipes on. Not a very good pic but its the one i was
sent sorry. Even so good anough for my mrs to say she would do him " tart
that she is" he he he
Dalton-name: Fighter, age 30,
A true cowboy - loves his RD - and not afraid to fettel his own ports. combined
with the roughest (sounding) pipes and his tuned lump the bike go's quite
well, one down on the front sprocket gives him a blistering pull of on this
bike. Looks like quight a cool bike all in black with that twin eye faring,
not sure about the orange wheels No pic of this chap ether.
Fessor, age 54,
No spring chicken, but just go's to show that theys bikes aren't just riden
by young hooagans but by the more mature thrasher as well, and respect to him
for choosing a valve to ride i say. Lots of race experience on his back raced
TA 125´s and passengered Mike Fiddamans TZ 750 & Windle GT 750 . He
has chrashed on almost every racetrack in DK and Sweden in his race days.
Fonzie, age 28,
He has fited a fairing from a Suzuki GSX 600, looks like a good fit. Underneath
the plastics is a 350R YPVS. I have never seen such a faring mod before and
i think it works very well.
Simon, age 24,
A newbie to the world of lc's. His Bike's all standard, except for one down
on the front sprocket. A nice looking bike very clean.
A Dalton Amazona who just loves to ride.
Looks nice all in black, not sure about what that back box is going to do for
the slip streem. he he he
Fisker, age 45,
Mature newbie to the gang. Afraid of nothing a real thrash merchent. a nice
LC with a YPVS engine fitted with K&N filters.
