Re: Aprilia back in the ADV game

BTW, I rode a 690 from Durango up to Steamboat on the CDR and returned back to Durango on the Colorado BDR. I felt like that was a perfect bike for that ride. Plenty of power for the road sections and light enough to own it up in the San Juans even packed with all my camping gear. But it is a pricey...

Re: Aprilia back in the ADV game

Hmmm, it's over 400 lbs. Not as much as a T7 but a good 60+ lbs heavier than a KTM 690 Enduro R. I guess it depends on what you want to do with it. Yamaha says T7 wet is ~205kg (451#). Several folks have weighed theirs and say this is reasonable. T660 is claimed 185kg dry. +18L of fuel = 198kg. Add...

Re: Lambo sets SUV record at Pikes Peak

Actually, I misspoke(mistyped?) about my friend's car. It's the Maserati SUV they've been driving. All these more exotic brand SUVs kinda look the same to me. None of them remotely compare to the full package of high performance family hauler X5 M50i we're driving these days. We've just returned fro...

Re: Lambo sets SUV record at Pikes Peak

It was a little hard to really tell what it looked like from that video given all the livery on it and the rapid shot transitions. It's cool that Pikes Peak is still a standard and something that happens to challenge it. I have friends here in Annapolis that have been driving one for a few years and...

Re: Desparation?

Interesting. A stationary bike that can be started and can shift thru the gears? I can see how that would be helpful for a complete noob. But yeah, your daughter can ride a dirtbike… Honestly, I think they're looking to capitalize on the opportunity to get you into the showroom to see if you'll fal...

Re: Desparation?

My daughter and I dropped in Old Glory HD a few days ago to get her signed up for her motorcycle licensing course. When first approached by a young sales guy the first thing he wanted to tell us about was the military livery on new HD models and how cool he thought that was. I asked him if we could ...

Re: Riding Areas near Harford County

AOAA would be a pretty good place for someone new to off-road riding. There's a long haul road if they just need practice with a manual transmission - flat, without any terrain or obstacles. There are also some pretty entertaining trails that are also pretty easy that go through the woods and up and...
