Those big bikes just don't do anything for me, they're just too big and heavy for the dirt imo.

Every time I ride my XR650L, I'm liking that bike more and more! It's a versatile machine!

I'd hold on to that depost if I were you. Triumph will soon release two new Adventure bike. My guess is a 675 and a 1050. I'm gonna wait for the 2294cc version.

Check the cool link...

Thanks, but I'm not into the big bikes, I just posted that for people who might be in the market.

I may not buy any more bikes, since I'm uber happy with everything I have right now!

If anything, I'm looking at Jeeps, there are lots of great deals on CL these days! It's a buyers market!

Post up on the Rowher Flats Breakfast Klub and I bet you'll raise some interest.

I'm hoping to get out there one of the three days . . . started feeling like shit yesterday though . . . hoping to kick the bug so I can get out and hit the dirt. It's supposed to cool off a bit on Sun and Mon.

Duy - I'll let you know when I get back from Las Vegas. Planning on riding as much dirt there and back as possible.

I'm always up for a ride, Mon would work. And I just put on a fresh rear tire on the XRL!

KM was great fun, that's why I just did a day trip, it wasn't bad at all.
