Yes. If I go through Vermont then title in Florida. The deal might fall through because of these hurdles. Piece of advice for those who buy new KTMs...pay the money to get a street title even if you don't ever intend to ride it on the street. It will make the resale so much easier and get you more $$$$.

I am trying to motivate someone to "look for" a title for a 200 EXC for sale locally with very little time on it.

I guess the next time I see a 200 EXC being parted out - The frame is mine if it has a title!

Been for sale for a while, in the fall he had it listed as low as 2200$ IIRC

Definitely same guy, dog is almost always included in a photo

EDIT: I could be convinced to go scope it out if someone is interested, I work on the Meriden/Wallingford line

Yep. I sold my 200 last year and miss it. But I remembered one of the main reasons I sold it was because it really sucked on the slabbed connecting sections. I have an old skool 250 to scratch the 2T itch and the 990 for big bike shenanagins. I think the 450 will fill the gap nicely. Especially once I add the Rekluse.

Another great video. trojan Man! Great race as well, you turned into an animal! First you were kicking kids on 80's outta the way, now your plowing down riders just cause they slow down in front you!

I pulled up up your video channel the other day and came back to reality an hour and a half later.

She's home. She was a little nervous to get between the two katooms.


But after a little coaxing, she settled in nicely. I can't wait to get it out to Pachaug.
