Noble, Great, Excellent.

I figure for a bike that can take me anywhere I want to go, it does pretty damn well. Even with street tires going off road.

The KTM was already named by the previous owner who is another inmate here. He had already named her "Drama Queen " I believe due to his leg losing a battle either with the big girl or terra firma while riding her. He was not happy with me at all when he saw that I had removed the "Drama Queen" stickers he had applied.
But she is still lovingly referred to as Drama.

I had the Z-Rex about a week when I decided the jetting was not going to cut it. So I ordered an Ivan's kit and proceeded to rejet. Well, when trying to return the carbs to the location they were removed from turned into an hour and a half long ordeal...........................

Very pregnant wife time waddles into the garage and asks:
"Whacha doin?"
"Letting this "Silver Bitch" kick my ass!"
"Well tell that "Silver Bitch" that I am hungry and she is going to have to wait."

And The "Silver Bitch" was born.
