That will definitely be better than a KLR or 950 ADV for sand riding!

I'd join you fookers but I'm not 100% yet.

Not for fat out of shape guys either.

You will learn. When its hot, and you are tired from riding in the sand, and the bike floods from you dropping it...

Sounds like you have experanced this before, Mr Kunts ?

Looks like a real beast!

I am getting ready right now to go do my weekly sunday forrest ride!

Its going to be a sweet day to ride solo.

Only a few more days of ,lazy people who think hunting is setting in your truck drinkin beer waiting for your dogs to push bambi into the road so you can take a pop shot!
No sport to me?

I am looking fwd to the group ride comming up!

Hello there, I just noticed your 'partial catalogue of Dubious Acts' (post #2) contains some URL errors.

Is it worth bringing something like a WR250 up in the bed of a truck to ride around up there? Is the 250 underpowered? Reason I ask is because they're inexpensive and available down here.

If its tagged you'll have fun. I took a DRZ-S last time and my buddy rode a KLR and we had a great time and all the inmates are good guys too. Sfront does a great job leading and he makes sure you hit some whoops before the day is over.

I have only messed with it a bit so far but the kicker is really high. I'm having trouble getting my knee up to my ear to get my foot on it. Now instead of needing you to help pick up the 9fiidy I'll need help kicking the Berg.
The bicycle should help out with the old knees, felling better already.

Humm perhaps that's the problem?

I'm a left side kicker.

Lived with out a starter for a year.

KTM style of TDC is to kick it to half way then give it hell .

You could always pull start it with a KLR.
