Nope. We already negotiated. She gets a bike this year and next year I get a mostly dirt toy. So the bottom would be for me.

The Ninja is probably a good call. I had an old EX500 "mini-Ninja" back in the late 80s. It was a parallel twin with lots of buzz -- rear view mirrors were there just for decoration, and 45 minutes into a ride your back hurt, your neck hurt, and you couldn't feel your hands anymore. I hear the 300 is way smoother. Make sure you get her a pink one to match that jacket!

Scooter, looks like I'm going to have to cancel. I was sorting my bike late last night following my trip to Prairie de Chien, and I discovered oil in my radiator overflow tank. Thaaats not supposed to be there.

Just take it off. My KTM never came with a radiator overflow tank. Keeps me from noticing things like that!

Yup, hope to be offroading on a ORV park this weekend with Mow-Ree. We'll see if the weather holds up. And if it doesn't, we'll see how our bikes do in the mud!

See...even the finger knows it was a bad idea and tries to obscure the picture. That's one smart finger there.

Here's the perfect solution, Ryan. Dirt friendly . . . and pink!

This morning I left for work two hours early to go looking for some dirt.






This was the best trail I found
I was stopped on it at the Skunk River from a wash out and a downed tree
I need to go back with a saw.
