Sold the ATK today. Budget crisis in the house.

SO... Now I'm saving my ducats for the next bike to live in my garage. TE-610? KTM 525 EXC? BRP? Something with longer legs than the 100mi-ish range of the ATK. Something with the magic button more'n likely.

I'm leanin towards an older TE-610. Sounds like a neat bike. Multi-mission capable as it were.

Have I got a deal for.......

Hmm, I have a nice 525 that is much too manly for me. It's for sale. I'm stepping into something much lighter and that perferably burns oil.

Gummee...once you have some green, I will be about ready to let go of my 525 with the MXC tank which is good for 150 miles +. It has the steering damper too which is tres excellante'. Oh...and as you know...the MAGIC button. PS: This is a different one than the one you were interested in a couple months ago.

Wow, 2 people trying to offload KTM's. They must not be good bikes!

And I still don't quite get the need to burn oil

KLR smokers

Hey:

KLR's aren't smokers.
Foolz

So, who wants to go for a little ride today? The sun is out, the birds are singing and I want to ride, I want to ride, I want to ride! (even though I don't have a Honda)

2SMOKE or not 2SMOKE?

http://ktmtalk.com/uploads/the_annoy...g_320x256.mpeg I like all my 2 strokes, sometimes I have as much fun dropping trees with the Stihl 044, as I do riding the KTM 200, oh, I make $$$ whenever the Stihl TS 400 Demo saw is in my hands...
