Why u sell?


Damn just bought a 2011 DRZ400S. A little newer and bigger bike for a little more cash but man, I probably would have went for the WR! My story, day late and a dollar short.

Good Luck..............

Smokey mountain riding

Just got back from a trip to the smokies. Trailered the BMW down and my brother rented a dual sport from gsm moto rental. Good folks. Got a great route from them and rode around 225 miles first day. Hit the dragon. And cherohola hwy. wow what scenery! Rained second day and my butt was sore from the day before we headed home. Highly recommended trip. Stayed in a cabin in Townsend. Cheap clean. A bit rough for parking though.

P.S. That really tight section right along the lake was ass-puckering on the KLR.

P.P.S Kenny, the Pirelli Scorpions are the best street-legal front tire for off-road use I've had on. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Great, I was going to shoot you a PM when I got on to see how it handled on the KLR. I love the one on the XR..took a bit to get used to the new turning of the front end...

Everyone missed out on a hell of a good weekend @ Redbird. Seems that there is more every week coming there now.

Not me! I want people to know "why" I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I have the Pirelli Scorpions on my BMW G650gs and hate them on dry pavement. They are good on gravel and wet roads, but squirelly has heck on dry pavement. Will not buy them again-yuk.

This is true even for fully offroad bikes. If a tire works great in hardpack they'll leave you on the side of the trail when riding in mudd.

Suspension is the same way, great suspension usually sucks when you get out of the terrain its setup for. Unless its set up for a wide range of things while losing a little everywhere. Or you pay someone a ton of money until theres no unwanted friction money can buy and bypass the compromise's

EDIT: I have been pushing really hard this summer trying to advance to the next level and changing tires frequently is part of that if you want to get to the "A" class. I only have one tire (thats worth anything) right now but if someone wants a pretty worn out tire for next to nothing let me know. I also have a handful of tires that are really worn out for everything but mostly road riding that someone can have if they want. Shoot me a PM if your interested.

How was work today?

While most of you were working, I enjoyed a nice ride today. Stayed dry even. Took the Johnny Wooden Interurban Parkway to Martinsville, Mahalasville Rd, Bear Wallow/Creek Rd (wrong turn got me on this road, but enjoyed the gravel and scenery), East IN45, Gatesville Rd (which must have just been repaved, its a beautiful stretch of tarmac), Clay Lick Rd (also new road surface in great shape), East IN46, 5 miles on 65 North, then backroads back home to Indy. Made some wrong turns, but discovered roads Ive never been on before. A great three+ hour ride on the DRZ.

Enjoy your rides this coming weekend when you can rub it in that you were riding when I was working.

Anyone been to the North American Scooter Racing Association drag races at the Brown County drag way? Once a month during the summer. Id like to check it out sometime. That strip looks cool as well.

Nice bike!
Is that the bean blossom drag strip? Used to go there in the late 80's.

I am sure it is. The strip is at IN135 and IN 45, but east at that intersection. On Gatesville Rd. Maybe 1/4 mile east. Looks to be in good shape, parking lot has lights and has been mowed. Its a 1/8 mile strip though.
