If its kinfolk or co workers and they ask where I've been riding then the reference will either be on the street bike or the dirt bike. (Psssssst,,,,, they're all dirt bikes!)

If talking to someone knowing make/model then I let the manufactures help me out with either DRZ, XR or VStrom.

If its around you fellas then I might utter " Scooter "or in years past "ride".

And when that damn thing slams me on the ground there are other names that don't need mentioning.

The brief love affair with the dirty Italian scooter is over.

That's what about a 25hp drop in power from the Ape to the KTM?

That's probably close.

But also probably a 60lb drop in weight.

The 300 feels like a bicycle in comparison. Now I understand "on the pipe."

Well, the KTM is probably more reliable.

Shall we play a game?

Who can tell us what these things are. Be specific so we can determine the winner of "PTBD".
