I'm no aficionado of motorcycles after all I own a KLR but i've never seen or heard about them. Definately a cool looking bike.

Here's an easy one.Instant street bike just add lights and mirrors...

2006 Honda CRF 230 dirt bike/ enduro in good shape with electric start. if u add the lights and mirrors it would be street legal.
Whoever falls for this deserves themselves.

theres a guy in gulf breeze that works at the wendys that his only transportation is a 60's era unbaffled 2 stroke scooter - sounds like a swarm of hornets blasting by at 40 mph

I don't think that little bike can carry you and a camel. And they certainly won't tow another bike at the expected 60 mph

I think Adam needs to pick up an X-Challenge so i can get data points w/o having to pull the trigger myself

(10# lighter (wet) than a DR (wet) and 50HP, + proven Rotax lump)

Oh wait-- this isn't the Chuckleheads Thread is it....

Gonna put the trailer hitch on the KLR, see how it goes. I'm imagining cans on a cats' tail...

Just come play with my Orange one

Seriously, when the KDX is done (or the Honda for that matter) come over and let's hit ANF for an overnighter and you can get some quality seat time..

BTW the Rally Raid Filter is in, and I think I need a re-map. Getting some mid throttle surging, but it'll still smack the rev limiter quite quickly. Partly due to the poor traction the 606 rear is giving me.. I know they put these rear tires on bigger bikes, but can't find the sweet spot on tire pressure. just spins it.
Did any of the test riders notice at BW a couple weeks ago? Lots of wheelspin when geting cozy with the throttle.
