Sure.. look at the picture... city or country bridge?

If in the country there are maybe 7 bridges from start to finish

If city, there are but 4. 2 in Durham and 2 in Hillsborough.

Then a deciding clue is in the text with the picture.

For some the image in a mirror also might be a confirmation clue.

You can't eat a bridge. I'm looking to tag the donkey's deer.

No deer tonite. No sweet potatoes here either. Sun from behind my rt shoulder. I covered the sunny side to keep from being seen from the outside.

Triangle guys, help me out.

I'm looking for a Husky and a KTM dealer.

I'm tracking the BMW dealership on Capital does Husky.

But I'm showing Team Powersports in Garner as a KTM dealer. I was there three weeks ago and never saw a KTM. Is there another KTM dealer that I'm missing?

MrsDonkeys is asking about bikes, and I've got a few to check out before I give firm answers. Just sayin....

BMW does husky.

http://www.trianglecycles.com/ does KTM
I never knew TPS was KTM?


Oh, new bike = need new sprockets BAD.
She tops out somewhere in the low 70s but buzzing like hell and revving something unhappy.
Currently it does wheelies whether I want or not fairly often. I think gearing it more for speed would help with that. :)
Also, if you go for a ride to grab a tag, and since there is no tank bag, you need to put your phone in a pocket or something. Not in the backpack you leave sitting at home.

They are listed on KTM's website, but I was there three weeks ago and didn't see a KTM on the lot in Garner.

I really want to look at a 690 Supermoto up close, and the new Husky 650 Terra.

Although, MrsDonkeys just said "Why don't we build me a dual-sport out of a Buell Blast?" OK, I'm interested. Let's talk. This could be fun.

Power is a relative idea. They only produce about 9 less HP than a DR650, and when you factor in the MUCH lower center of gravity, it feels significantly lighter. Now factor in a lightweight rider, and this could be good. Plus, I like building stuff.

I swapped rides with a buddy. It did NOT like my fat ass.
9 hp less is enough less I felt like my jeep would beat it off the line.
and 33% less hp is a large chunk. BUT
I'm assuming that Ms Donkey would NOT have the issue I did. Amazing how "powered fine" for most will seem sad when I get on it.

Triangle Cycles is Durham and Danville, VA

Team Powersports is Garner and now out near the airport. The Garner location sells KTM. The Durham Triangle Cycles does.

Mrs Donkey is welcome to ride my 97 Dr 650. I'm short. The bike is stock. All I did to lower the seat height was back out the pre load spring locking ring on the rear shock. Makes it a bit soft offroad but I'm a lot heavier too. I bought it new and like it. Low maint. Goes anywhere I can ride on or offroad. I'm not far from Garner team power sports. My Dr isn't for sale tho.

But where are the bloody Aussies,hell,it's only next door.
Turn signals are over rated. Not required too.
Already have the plate and rode eighty miles
I need a new sprocket to help with speed
It's geared like a tractor

Looks like a tapatalk quote failure up there.
