LOL. Just doesn't like pavement. Or isn't supposed to like pavement. Was a bit jealous of you guys tearing off down the road while loaded my bike up. But then again was warm and dry on the way back.

Its a perfect compromise for a "One Bike household" though.

I can get away with mud (with better tires) I can Ride highway at 160km/h, I can load it for a 10,000 km trip, I can run twisties with sport bikes, I can supermoto it.

Your bike is just wicked for offroad - I watched how effortlessly you tore those trails and mud up !

The 640 can do offroad - just different kind off offroad :

(And the rider has a lot to do with it - I need more offroad work ! lol !)

And then you have hooligan's like Allan...

They're just at another level the rest of us work towards achieving.

The 950 in this video is OVER 500 POUNDS.

Who is going Thursday night and wereabouts exactly are you gonna ride Thursday night? Mainly off-road? I might be able to make it... trying to see if I can get away Thursday afternoon for a D/S ride and might swing by the store around 6 pm. Or should I try to bring my KDX instead? I obviously won't be able to ride the roads with it...

Nice video.
Gotta figure with 100hp and a paddle tire + MASSIVE rider skill
that would be fun. 1/4 tank of fuel probably helps too.

Well my farm truck is tied up farmin' Thursday so no to the KDX for Thursday night. Gotta do a few things to the KTM in the morning as I am planning on heading to Little Elbow Thursday afternoon to meet up with my friends riding in the Trans Rockies MTB race... then might hit the Maclean Creek store for 6 pm to find out where people plan to ride - who's going?

Ty - you still doing the Friday AM rides?

Ride Tonight

Well all, today's forcast is cloudy with showers for Bragg Creek. I am still interested in a ride tonight. Type of ride is just to explore McLean Creek but need to stay off the main road as my CRF is not DSed. I was hoping to avoid it but that thought is changing. lol.

As long as it is not a massive rain storm at 5, I will be there. I ride a CRF 450 X when I get there.

Dave,

Responded to your PM - thanks for your offer! Might see you there on my KTM depending on my hookup with friends in the MTB race.

640 Adventure and 450EXC for sale

I'm selling my 640 Adventure $5000 and 450EXC $5800. If anyone is interested see pics on Kijiji.

Going for an Adventure ride this weekend to BC :) Leaving early saturday morning and coming back sunday night. Apparently we're doing 500+km of untracked trails in the mountains. Should be quite the adventure since we don't even know if it's possible to make the route or passes we are planning on doing. Get two off road racers together on a couple of dualsport bikes and they think they can do anything :)

Don't ask me where exactly I'm going because I just go where I'm told. I'm not too into maps and stuff I usually just ride the road, trail, swamp, rocks till I can't ride any further. When I can't go anymore then I leave it up to my buddies to point the way.

*turns around* Quinn...you there?? Jason? Guys?? *confused look* Hmmm, think they must have stuck to the road...

A couple of us are gathering at McLean early tomorrow morning, probably around 8:30, I ride a DR-Z400, and the other guys (only one so far, but more may be coming) are all on dirt bikes. We'll either be at McLean west or fisher east depending on who shows up. I'll repost when I have more info.

He's bored to tears riding a paltry 640 now!

Time for a 990!
