Skippii, have you ridden a KLX? I'm just curious because even all tweaked up like mine is, it is still only a 250.

Not saying I'd rather have that Honda either, but just asking.

A little, but not much. Christian (PSUCanary) let me ride his around. But I did ride thousands of miles on my DR350, and also put quite a few miles on Mike's TW200, and I'd be happy with something about halfway between those two power levels.

Just curious, I know you have had small bikes before. It is what it is although I'd say mine is much closer to the 350 than the 200 after a few tweaks...

Come by and ride it some time. We can take it and the DRZ out for a spin. Eventually you'll have enough money to buy it.

Afton was clear and sunny. Fairfax was snowing when we left. Blackberry is sunny or sun going down.

That was 3 years ago when I was new to the area, now I know better... Jokes...

A KLX is an awesome bike, I loved mine and put thousands of miles on it. I had no real problem riding from here to Laurel Fork with all my kit, and then riding another 300 miles over the course of the weekend. A very low maintenance bike, that literally started every time I jumped on it.. Its a 250, so you need to ride the piss out of it, but that's the fun part......

Actually, I just found out today that no, I won't ever.
My health insurance, after talking with my doctor and pharmacist, seems to have it would be a lot cheaper for them if I was just dead, so they're paying for anything anymore, and my out of pocket medical expenses are now beyond what I make at my job, let alone stuff like rent. This is apparently their way of wishing me a happy birthday.
