The E
You should try one on first. I have the AFX one ( same helmet shell) I tried on the fly and the AFX on and I needed a different size with each.

Eddy,
The ride begins in Camp Verde and ends in Williams?

Eddy, I am way bummed! That's the same weekend as my annual boys fly fishing trip. It's also the same weekend of the District 37 Big Bear ride. What'up that one weekend? Oh well, maybe there will be less horse activity since I won't be on the ride. Please pm me if for some reason the dates change as I was planning on going on this great ride. Thx

Since I know most of the guys looking at this are from Phoenix to up North like me. Does anyone have or know of someone that has a KTM 640A/E or a 625SXC that I can take a short spin on...doesn't have to be off road, but everyone says I need to ride the LC4 engine before making a decision. I am thinking that this might replace the DR650, but want to be sure I can take the buzz the engine has.

Right next door

I had one and my neighbour bought it from me. We live near Lake Pleasant and I am sure you could ride his if you want. Obviously you would need to come to him. Cheers

PS . I didn't think the vibration was it was bad at all.

No big deal Bbg if we end up in a smaller group the advantage is we'll be moving faster . I just made my reservation at the Days Inn.

I had better be finding a bike soon or I am out. The DR650 left the garage this morning. The GS is too big and the little XR250R just won't carry my ass around.

I have my peepers peeled!!!!

Let me know if you know of anything.
