If you want a newer bike and can afford it, get one! Hell, even if you can't afford one get one!

Ain't none of us getting any younger and we need to do the things we have a passion for while we can. Today "could" be the last day that you ride. Happens all the time.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

10 yrs old is new enough

I have been told that 2003 and newer is the way to go.

My 2004 sherco 290 was excellent and my 2006 Raga 300 is only significantly different in that it has better suspension. Power is only slightly more on the raga and size/weight is too close too tell when your riding.

Talking With Gordy as well!

I like the way you think Gordy... If you love it and can get one then some times that is the best justification to sign on the daunted line.

jonnyc21 screwed with this post 07-16-2013 at 02:28 PM Reason: iPhone auto correct. LOL

My dear old dad always said, "you don't see luggage racks on hearses" or "you've never seen a hearse pulling a U-Haul".
