Re: Granville's Work & Ride Day 4/5-4/7

Big shout out to Jim and James. Incredibly gracious hosts. Jim led me around the trails, and waited patiently for me to catch up as I consistently fell behind, and stopped and pointed out the best lines/approach to the uphills. And the guy can ride. Great place to ride. I had never ridden in a place...

Re: Dual Sport Advice Needed

Picked this up. It came with all the stock WR250R stuff (wheels, tires, plastics, etc.) so I can switch it back and forth from supermoto to DS. Thanks for all the advice.

Re: Dual Sport Advice Needed

Twist- Thanks. Pete's sold that WR250 about 2 hours after I rode it. I've been checking ADV and CL. I've found some good bikes on CL, but they're overpriced compared to new. When you say $6K OTD, does that include MD tax and tags? Are you in Annapolis? I live on Kent Island. I'm going to give it som...

Re: Dual Sport Advice Needed

I passed on the KTM RFS bike, and went to JT with my truck and tie-downs for the KTM 500. Test rode it and it just didn't do it for me.

Re: 2015 KTM 500 at JT In Frederick

I was just wondering if anybody here was familiar with that particular bike because they had traded it in, or a friend had. That sort of thing. It was worth a shot. Thanks. Still trying to figure out the right DS bike for me.
