Re: Mid Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route - Trip 1

Snow and I don't get along too well with street bikes, but I won't let a couple of spills keep me from trying it again. A year or two ago all the roads were (apparently) clear of snow so I rode the cbr to work. It was really windy that day. I came over a rise on one of the country roads near home t...

Re: Fixing XR650L

I started to do a top end job on a 150r super moto project... now the frames painted, every bearing on chassis and engine replaced, bored carb, stroker 180 kit, and race tech springs and gold valves... started it 2 months ago That sounds pretty sweet. The stock 150R I borrowed to do minimoto in ste...

Re: What foot pegs are you guys running

I swap pegs just to have something with more grip when it's muddy. The teeth on my pegs really dig in, even in mud.

Re: March Moto Madness 2018

Huh, my DAMN jersey IS my cold weather jersey :lol2: If we're talking strictly off road then I'm with you. I don't know how people wear jackets for regular trail rides even in winter. However, for dual sporting I think I would need something to put on in between trail sections. In the fall we went ...

Re: Any thoughts on the 2018 KTM 690 R ?

When the demos of the previous gen came to town I wanted to try one (just on the street) but the demo bike was too tall and stiffly set up for me to even get it off the side stand. :killingme:

Re: Show us your toy hauler!

Ah, so the starcraft holds the bike too. I've looked at a similar forest river. I could see doing something like that. I wouldn't mind having a camper in the bed but I didn't want to get such a big truck. My truck could handle something like the capri campers (http://capricamper.com) but I think I'd...

Re: Show us your toy hauler!

What kind of camper you got there? I like the idea of a smaller camper (although, if I ever get one I'll have to have wifely approval so we'll see).

Re: Dr650 takeoffs $50

DR650 parts. $50 for Everything. It is all in excellent condition. It came off a 2015 dr650 with under 500 miles at the time. All I ask is for 1 person to take it all. Located in Urbana. Heh, you sound like me. I sold a garage full of woodworking stuff for $500 but required that the guy take everyt...
