orange bike shopping...

So, you fellas are reasonably knowledgeable. As much as I have liked my old XR6, I've gotten to the point where the extra weight is starting to kill me/kicking it. On the prowl for a KTM OR DRZ400E right now.

Rode a 525EXC a few weeks back, and was more than impressed. In reference to the RFS vs XC4 motors, is the extra price of admission for the 530EXC worth it? What's the biggest difference (IE reliability/ridability) between the two? What's the big things to look at in terms of the RFS motors?

Really would like to find a 525, but noticing most for sale are 450s, and their prices are all over the place. Any feedback or advice is much appreciated.

A little warning here... and all this is My Humble Opinion ...
the Orange bikes 530 and below are NOT commuter bikes. You can set it up for street but why when you could get a metric scoot better suited (ala DRZ)

As a street lagal dirt bike of course they are the tops...
Very little difference between 450 and 500.
2007 and below has the RFS and different frame. I personnally like these bike a lot. The 2008 to 2011 versions were great bikes but much different from the RFS.

Now the BIG jump to the 2012 and up .... OMG. Gotta have lots of $$$$ however...

The best deal around is the 450 Husky FBM has up for sale....
I think Woods Rider is thinking of selling his 2009 530exc

I might know where there is a 2007 525xc that MIGHT be up for sale...

lots of options

Easter Weekend

Since it is Easter the second grade teacher decided to take a few minutes and talk about the upcoming weekend.

“Who can tell us something about the resurrection of Jesus Christ?

Little Johnny –already sitting alone facing the corner - yelled over his shoulder.... “I know if it last longer than 4 hours he should see a doctor!”


Happy Easter to all



Im gonna ride somewhere Saturday...Anyone?
