Ben, I remember not liking the power band on yours for some reason. I think im just spoiled with the 4 stroke torque.

And call me crazy, but I like having a legit WI plate...ya know, something like Augies.

I think I'd actually like that thing, but not for the price. Tell ya what, for a bucket of chicken I'll come help ya haul off that pile of parts.

Hell, skip the chicken...consider it a favor from a friend!

Ben's is a 4 stroke. Just a wee bit smaller and mellower than a 450.
He still manages to ride the snot out of it.

Really? I'm all mixed up...who has the 2 stroke KTM? Boomer?

I just remember riding Ben's bike at Murreland and being unimpressed, though I'm sure after getting used to it it'd be much better than the 650 for trails and such.

If it had a plate I'd seriously consider it.

Geez...rub it in. You kids and your willy-nilly bike purchases. I looked at one a while back...looks like an interesting ride.

I'm thinking the DRZ is too close to what I have.

Ben, what did you want for that thing? Shoot me a PM.

Hold on, I have a 4 stroke DRZ as well as 3 2 strokes.

And no, the DRZ is absolutely different from a DR650.

I realize the difference. I had one for a little while...not really what I'm looking for. I'm keeping the DR. Just want something small/fast/barely legal to go with it.

Ice condition

Hope you don't mind an Ontario boy posting here. How's your ice? We were close to being ready to get on the lakes and were hit by this mild spell. It was 50 F yesterday and is into the 60's today. Thinking of taking my V-Strom out for a ride today.
