got my bashguards in the mail today, for $20 i am really surprised at the quality...







also, once the rain stopped falling i decided to go assess the water on the bike, since it was nice and warm, and i was comfy doing 50mph in a t shirt and jeans... (yes, the ke can hit 50... i hit 53.4 indicated on my vapor, and 53 on my phones gps app, i suspect that to be fairly accurate)

also, rode thru this whilst assessing....waterwas above the foot pegs at the deepest, about half up the cases on the ke...



same depth here

all in all put 27mi on the ke, was a blast... rode past about 12 cops, all of them rubbernecked when they heard the 2 smoker, but saw a plate on the back (bike is licensed, registered, as well as ensured) and went on their merry way....

I received mine yesterday too. Haven't installed them yet. Any issues? I did install my Seat Concepts seat cover and foam.

Only issue i had was i had to move my turnsignals, as they were mounted right where the bar clamp needed to go...and it was a PITA to open up the throttle tube end, but i couldnt find my air die grinder, had to cut it open with a knife....

Then again I really like my 2000 250EXC but its not plated and would need to be wired for lights. It's funny I've never paid more than $2500 for a dirt bike so the 300XC would be mentally painful to fork over the cash.
In the mean time I will have fun on the 250. Funny how a 2000 model can put such a smile on my face.

This being the ADV Rider "Chicago" thread I thought some might be interested that AMA District 16 and Classic flat track have a co-sanctioned Half mile at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Elkhorn Wisconsin on Sunday May 5. Races start at 1 PM and the event includes a swap meet.
Also included is a $1000 pro class that last year had #17 Henry Wiles and the Springsteen/ Werner racing team expert pros in attendence.
Elkhorn is a true cushion track and a great place to see excellent flat track action.
If you don't have other plans for May 5 you might want to check out some good ol' down & dirty, bangin' it sidways, roostertailin' flat track!
