Re: KTM Freeride -tagged

I have my '05 Beta ($2150) and '16 Sherco Factory ($5k) for sale. If you buy both it averages to less than $4k each :jack:

Re: New Bike

Opps, you're right. Actually, he has the 990. I knew it was one generation prior to the 1190 (which another friend has.) Also had a 950SE that he just sold. I was confused about the lineage until I saw some of them together and could see the differences. I confused his 950SE & 990 all the time until...

Re: Slow Ride Day - Sept 14, 2019

I have already been scouring the net for good used 50s. IME: Start them on a Strider balance bike and look for used a StaCyc or OSET 12.5. Will never need training wheels. Advantages of electric: **WAY** lighter (20#/50# vs 110#), can't burn the kid's leg when it falls on them and they aren't stron...

Stolen WR250R (Jessup/Laurel)

My coworker finally got his WR250R titled & tagged yesterday morning. He drove it to lunch yesterday and rode it home from the office. It was stolen last night from his townhouse in Jessup. Didn't even make it a whole 24 hours :censored: Cops are on the way to take a report. Looks mostly stock and h...

Re: FS: 2005 Beta Rev3 270

Thanks. The carb & clutch issues I mention because the '06 doesn't do either. So there is definitely some room for improvement on them if one so chooses.
I forgot about MATU (as I'm not a real FB user.) I'll post there if it doesn't sell here for a bit.

FS: 2005 Beta Rev3 270

Ok, I have too much stuff and need some space back. This is a 2005 Beta rev3 270. This was advertised in Richmond last year and I had a good friend who lives nearby go inspect it and pick it up for me. I immediately (less than a week later) found a slightly nicer almost identical 2006 locally (the '...

Re: Northeast 24 hour race in NY

Thanks for the writeup! Was an enjoyable read. The problem w/ not seeing shadows while riding in the dark plagues mtb'ers too. The majority of the problem stems from lights that are close to your eyes don't cast visible shadows and creates 'flat' light. You are effectively looking from the same vant...
