According to that video, my bike isn't a true dual sport yet, but I have come to the understanding that I will be picking it up eventually, but hopefully less than that KLR guy
Spring can't come soon enough!

For some of you guys looking for a 250, check out this ebay listing. I've talked with this seller in the past, he has a ton of vintage bikes. This one would be a fun winter project.

EDIT: I think if we pulled the carb off, a 1 hour bath in my ultra sonic parts cleaner, and the bike would probably be running. Someone please buy it, so we can keep another vintage bike on the road!

J, I put it on my watch list. If I buy it I'll have to keep it at your place because my lovely wife is capable of murder if I acquire yet another project.

PS If I'm going to the Moto show in the cities it will have to be Friday or Sunday. any one interested? I'll drive.

I will definitely be going to the IMS in the cities next month too, but I will probably make a weekend out of it and stay down there. My girlfriend had me pick out what things I wanted for my bike as a Christmas present and she ordered it last night, it's going to be a great year

Unfortunately, it looks like some of the manufactures won't be at the IMS Minneapolis show, including KTM.

I agree! I need to milk it out while I can before she changed her mind...

KTM hasn't been at the IMS for quite a few years now, but there are usually a couple of them there that other people bring. The rest of the show is worth checking out for sure. It would be fun to meet up with any of you that will be there at the same time
