Plenty of nice back roads so you can stay off 64!

The tigers here are a lot tougher to tame than the one I rode out on!!

Damn.
Even though he spelled it, I couldn't spell it right when I was looking for "ponsettia road"

No.

I'm going to go steal Greg's (SpeedGs) 50cc before long.



I just want a plateable dirtbike <3k
I think I might end up with a drz400, even though I'd rather have KTM/Husq/berg

Sorry about that WB. I'm heading out to Virginia Beach for a soccer tournament so this was my only chance to ride this weekend.

Last I looked the VA tag was just down the road from the tournament and I won't have a bike.

And you should not need to head to PA to find one...just take your time and the universe will handle the details...ommmmm...
As much as I would like a dual purpose machine...I am still quite partial to vintage street bikes...this is my next acquisition...coming this Spring...right now its all tucked away for the winter...1979 XS1100 resurrected out of a Louisiana swamp...hence her name...Swamp Thing...the guy that rebuilt this bike is a genius...brought the bike back to Ny in boxes in his pickup truck and totally rebuilt or reconditioned every single part...She is 100% turnkey...

Rugby talk to Tarheel Wheeler. He might know of someone or somewhere to get a KTM or Berg. He likes those kinds of bikes.

Yea, as tempting as that one in Pa is, the fact that his other for sale post mentions a "red light being on, and it won't go off"
scares me.
Only red lights I know of mean no oil pressure.
Thats bad.
even if he fixes it, that's bad for motors.

plus a TE610 is not a hwy bike unless you're a real masochist...find one much closer to home...its just a matter of timing and luck and intentions...

Compared to the ktm 450s, 525s, 640s etc,
it would be like a Cadillac

I'll have to take your word for that one..as I have no background experiences with those bikes...but the Husky is still not all thaat comfortable for a long distance ride although it isnt impossible to do...but why?
Now Swamp Thing on the other hand has been set up as a bagger since that shot was taken 2 yrs ago and she'll make a great fly and ride home machine...
