Recommended Posts

Now that all the friggin ice is finally gone what are you you guys (gals too) riding?

 

Yep, riding season is upon us.:banana:

 

Old gas, flat battery, cracked tires. Uh,huh. Been awhile.

I'm doing the dual sport thing for now. KLX250s.

Not a bad bike. Certainly no rip snorting wheelie poppin KTM 610 but it didn't cost much either. It's super light and fun to ride around.

Had to do it. Finally got one of those rip snorting wheelie poppin KTM's I mentioned at the beginning of this tread. Sold the Kawsaki and bought the bike I've always wanted.

 

No not new, it's an 05 450 MXc Racing model but it's by far the fastest dirt bike Ive ever been on.

Not sure how it got through State Patrol but it has a valid WA plate.

I've been riding an 05 Yamaha fjr1300 since new but have been looking at new Kawasaki Concourse 14's pretty hard. I've let the wife talk me out of buying it for now but don't know how much longer that will last.
