You mean ones that don't bail out in the middle of the ride?

How light? 400? 250?

I've see a few good looking DR650's lately

No 650 (Too big in the hips. I like them FIT.)

No 250 (Not long enough in the legs....cept for a WR and they're too $$$.)

Wouldn't mind a nicely kept, blown-up KTM 450 that I can re-build as an example. But I don't want junk either. 350 - 500-ish.

Something on the dirty side of life.

For those of you who missed Lyndon's presentation last night, you REALLY missed out!! What an incredible person and motorcycle rider/racer. If you ever get to meet him in the future, do it.

As for riding goes... Ive got spring fever. Cant wait for the semester to get over so I can get my summer trips and festivities underway!

Im plannin on getting another smaller bike sometime this summer, so you guys are gonna have to show me around the single track

LAST night?!? I thought it was Saturday night? I couldn't make it there Saturday, but I'd have gone last night.

It's cheaper to get some new riding buddies.....Ones that like cheap yellow fizzy beer.

Had a great time and thank you for getting me passed "when pigs fly" thinking on the vertical hill climb. I never though that bike would have made it to the top without a winch.

Hope'n they mite be a way to interconnect some of them but will have to use some back roads to hook them up, give it time & mite be a all dirt trail to be found eventualy.
Who is it that lives is Pikeville? Is he on his forum, I am always looking for someone nearby to ride with.

I have done it many times on my KLR..... It is rough though on the old fat pig...
