New here memphis

Hey guys got a new bike after not having one for 3 years!
I work on a boat so I won't be home until early October, but this site is about what I plan on doing.
A bit of my background I've had pretty much all sport bikes and have been riding 12 years. Even when I didn't have a bike these past 3 I had buddies's bikes to ride. So just kinna teaching out seeing who is on here riding around Memphis.

Welcome!

We look forward to seeing you around. Lots of good folks around here. Getting them all together is definately akin to herding cats though.....

Very cool those are exactly my plans. The bike I got should be dirt capable if I get different tires, and it should be comfortable enough for distance. I have zero offroad experience however. Looking to take baby steps in that direction.

I rode one around in Louisville for about 30 minutes and it felt like it would run over buildings! I had my dad go pick one up but haven't been home to ride mine yet.

VERY nice. There are a few KTM guys around here. You might get in touch with Grizz Adams.

Here is picture of his bike from the Photo Tag thread. (The second bike in the post....).

It happens. Once again, the term herding cats is applicable.

The photo tags are fun too although it's been lanquishing in Mississippi for a while. It's been a little slow this summer.
