That's the one... or the WR 250 Goldwing Interstate, or the V-strom Supercross edition... and let's not forget the inummerable incarnations of the KTM 690 Unicorn Adventurer...

Yes the lil' freerider is a veritable blank canvass of potential for bigbore kits, long range tanks, pannier racks, top boxes, grip warmers, aircushions and steering dampenererers...

Do you reckon they can keep it under 100 kg's though... 'cause one of the big selling point is that it's light to pick up!

Not sure about the adoption side Troy but my kids have an attraction to weird looking pets. Does this still work for you?

That's great to hear but do you still sit on the mat in front of the fire licking your nuts?

Thumb Back to the 350 freeride

Sometimes... and so what if I do...?! Just keep a spray bottle of water handy...


Though this photo makes one wonder how far some dog owners think things through... eh?




we now return you to your regular program...

Freeride on road

Hi Guys,

I am looking at getting the new Freeride but will still need it to get around on it.

I'v heard from KTM dealer that riding the EXC 250,350 etc on the road kills the engine and tires.

Is this the same story with the freeride, or can I use it as a every day commute and still have fun on the wknd?

Feedback from someone with the bike would be great, we still of 2-3 months before the bike arrives here is Western Australia.

Cheers

Fit a Cush hub to stop those problems.

Asking for feedback on a bike that is at least 2 - 3 months away? You are indeed an optimist (among other things....)

Anyways, here's where the 280cc 2T OSSA starts to look really good:

OSSA Explorer Weight and dimensions

Wheelbase 1.328 mm
Seat height 820 mm
Ground Clearance 340 mm
Tank capacity 8,6 liters
Dry weight 74


That's 74, read Seventy-Four, kilos, and 8.6 litres of juice. I read the weight and nearly wet myself. With joy, that is.

At the WTC meeting at Maldon, the local distributor was selling 2010 280 2T trials bikes for 6k, 2011 280's for 7k, and the current one for 8k, so I figure the explorer will go for maybe 9k?

For the east coast ranges I reckon it might be the best thing ever.
