No, I already have a garage full of these orange bikes.
98 380 exc, 99 380 exc, 98 250 sx, 96 250 exc, 99 rolling chassis.
But what I will do since you nerds ride great bikes is bring an extra rear wheel with new tire so if team orange gets a flat we got backup ready.
I also carry a rotopax with 2t mix just in case, thirsty bikes.
You can try the 380 and you will buy one next week.

Mine's in pieces right now. Forks seals, left hand rear brake, new charging and ignition system, all lights and wires associated with that too.

I plan on making a trek to MI and getting it inspected by the state patrol and getting it plated for dual sport use. I've been shopping for a titled 300 frame, but they seem to be quite rare

better hurry up.
I'd be stressing.
Lemme know if you need parts, I may have stuff.
I bought my 380 as plated by po with an IL then a TN street title, went right through BMV, 100% legit with insurance.
It is really fun on the street also.

Range is always an issue. I think I can go about 80 miles. I usually carry enough oil for 2 or 3 gallons. Not really a long range type bike though. those road sections are harsh

I will probably bring the rear from the MXC along, as the Tractionator I have on the EXC does not agree with wet conditions at all.
But in all reality, the 950 will be my main steed

I've been amassing parts all summer for this so I should be set.

I got the boob tank so I think I can get 100 miles between fill-ups. I carry oil on DS routes so the works for me. Of course, I have the DRZe for dual sporting......

trail tech sucks for tech support and the wires from thier stator to my CDI don't match the instructions. I hope to get the wires going to the right places this weekend, the rest is just nuts and bolts and easy to do.

Plated 380 EXC. That'd be perfect
