What bike do you want today?

318335
Street legal WR450F
Want for those rides that are more challenging trail and less graded gravel and highway.

Or a KTM 500 EXC-F (I'd even "settle" for the 350).

Stupid questions people ask you when stopped

Wrong friend. I grew up driving on ice and never afforded studded tires or chains until recently. Judicious application of throttle, brake and steering input. Start to maneuver early. That is all.

Anchors for getting unstuck where there aren't trees

I know the area can be a bit swampy. Obviously the nastiest areas are to be avoided but I'd still carry a Z-Drag setup just in case. Lucky you - plenty of trees to anchor to for pulling.
