KBB says it should be worth $1,625. They base their price on 10,125 miles and you can't change it, average milage for that year I guess.

NADA Guides says low retail is $1,490 and high retail is $1,960, doesnít mention milage. Low retail is described as body parts with dents and scratches. It has a dent in the tank, not from falling but last time I took it off to adjust the valves the tank was full and rolled out of my hands.

Itís had itís carbs soaked in Berrymans and cleaned up well. Adjusted the valves and changed the oil and filter. New battery and almost full tank of gas.

Itís in great shape, not really showing itís age at all. Always garaged. Iím going to start at $1,725, may hold firm since it only has 4230 miles on it. Weíll see how many bites I get and go from there. In original OEM condition and everything works. I have the Kawasaki valve adjustment tool that goes with the bike. I also have the shop manuals, if I can find them in the garage they come with it too.
I know someone that is interested, I'll let know the details.

There are a couple of different ones I use on Android for other activities including off road.

I've played around with "back country" ... Need to spend more time figuring it out. Thanks for info. My dad and I are headed up to Spencer shortly, we are going to ride up through Huntersville, and come in from the north side... Cherry Grove, Landin route I think... Using the bicycle route in Google.

Just found out that I'll have to work a split shift tomorrow. From 5am until around 9 or 10am then from 4pm until who knows when.

I hope to be able to squeeze a quick ride tomorrow at Uwharrie but I would need to head back toward Salisbury around 3pm to be back here by 4pm.

I'm planning on riding down there today after the MC show in Spencer if anyone is interested. Shoot me an email or PM.

GPS coordinates for the Outpost

80į 1'15.19"W

If that is OK with you guys, what time do you want to meet on Sunday?
These are the coordinates where we will meet, right? Can we buy the passes here? I can probably get here by 10 am. It's about 90 or so mins from home for me. But what a day it looks like it will be!

Love two-stroke dirt bikes from the late 60s and early 70s. That Yamaha 360 looks pristine!

Glad to see you made it home ok. You didn't have much further to go down 601 to reach 24/27 in case you were wondering where the heck I was leading you. :)

Hey Joe, yup I diverted on 200 to get to Reed Mine RD, that's where the KTM picture was taken. Thanks for riding with me.

Yes that's the coordinates for the "Eldorado Outpost" and you can buy passes there, it's kind of a one stop shop. You can get gas, food, drinks, fishing supplies, gold panning supplies, camping gear....etc. Great place to stock up.

I ran into a big problem though, I have to work a split shift tomorrow (post #3051). The earlier the crews finish up, the earlier I can head that way. Unfortunately I'll have to head back home around 3pm to take get ready for Sunday nights work. I would be surprised if I can make it there before noon.


I hope that doesn't change your mind about going, maybe I'll see you on the trails. I'll be on a XR650L with #47 on the front number plate.

Mike
