Looking forward to seeing you.
At the moment the WR250R is there....the KTM990 has been back a forth a few times this fall.....Getting a 1995 XT600 Yamaha ready to ride over and leave on a perminate basis......

I expect the 75 DT400 will smoke the ozarks from time to time....Still my favorite ride for adventure riding, it is ready for a run to California but the trip got postponed, so now its back on the rack getting different tires for a run to Utah in the sping.....Probably ride it around AR this winter some to get the rings set, had to replace them after the overheat on the TAT in Neveda......

Look forward to meeting you all......

Just remember that you may be limited on higher bars and a riser by how much "play" you have in existing cables.
Some stock bikes don't have much extra in brakes/clutch/throttle.

Well looks like my clutch cable might be on the short side. Now to look for a longer cable.
