I was just putting out a feeler earlier to see if anyone wanted to go for a ride.

Just got back home. I was able to avoid the rain until I turned back onto my street.

I really need to think about getting another bike that's a little more road oriented.

The KTM has my ass feeling like I've been riding a tight rope with handlebars.

Yeah, I know. That's kinda what I was looking for, but even the used ones don't come cheap. The only way I could get one is to sell my bike, but I know I'd regret that. I need both, but I can't get the wife to see my point of view, especially after just spending over 2K on guns and ammo.

I just want something that I can jump on and ride out of state on the weekends. That just won't happen on my KTM.

Does Matt still have his super enduro?

If I kick and scream and get my way, I'll have a 690 enduro and a 990 supermoto and keep my 525.

Then I'll have all of my riding needs covered. Of course that'll never happen, so I'm stuck with a decision....



Dirty, do you know if he still wants to sell it?

You want a 690. Trust me.

He PM'd me earlier today. I'm going to call him when I get off of work.

Yes, I do want a 690....and a 300XC, and a 500EXC, and a 990 SE, and a 990 ADV....and that's only one brand!

The list goes on and on and on......

I was told to want in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up first.
