Hahaha! Gonna have to wait a few days or so. I'm packing up to go back into the field for work right now. Gotta take off tomorrow morning... LAME! I'll try to slap together a ride report while at work. Uploading some pics now and off to the Honda shop to see if they have a 450X in a box... Maybe building a race bike?

Lol, don't lend me your bike, ever, unless you want it wheelied. ;)

KTM might come up with something perfect in the meantime. [/QUOTE]

Lol! Don't hold your breath. Hahahaha! Rumours are now that ktm owns husky they might build an adventure bike with the 690 motor to expand sales on the husky side of things. Which be awesome, but at this point it's only rumours.

I'll be there as well with a couple other inmates around 5 till whenever. Been AWOL on here since selling the 950SE and getting a jeep - now jeep is sold and I'm starting to itch for another DS, smaller this time (for my limited off road skills) SE probably wasn't best choice for first dirt bike...but was still the most fn bike I've ever had 😜

but which one? 690, 500... 350? Gotta go have a look!

Lycan 1

South America, wow. Personally if I was doing that ride it would be on an XRL 650 or a DR 650. Simplicity and reliability. Maybe a KLR. Another option would be the DRZ 400 but not as comfortable and can't carry all your gear. KTMs are high powered , ready to race bikes and that's a huge trip. You may want to go Japanese. We want pics, please!
