Oh yeah. I generally try to take pic's before my bike gets filthy. It's normally pretty dirty. I live on a 3 mile long dirt road, so having a clean vehicle is a rare treat.

I'd love to come along on a ride. However, the wife just had our first baby so my ride time has been drastically reduced. One of these weekends soon though, I plan to take a nice day trip somewhere.

I haven't really mapped anything out, but I could try to forward GPS coordinates if there's a particular area you're interested in. There are a lot of cool places to ride out here.

I've owned 3 WR250R's since 2008 and I currently have a 2013 KTM 690 Enduro R. They are both great true dual sports (50/50). Obviously, the 690 is way more powerful and is much higher performing. ...

I right off pavement a lot and I find that once I get below 50% tread, traction really starts to suffer. I could probably get 1,500+ if I rode the rear MT21's until bald.

The KTM 690 Enduro is KTM's true dual sport bike. It is not a high strung race bike. The 690 has a a maintenance schedule very similar to the WR250R (other than 6,600 mile vs. 25,000 mile valve...

If we ever meet, you'll know 3. I've actually owned 3 WRR's since 2008; they are good machines, just down on power. I finally decided to buy a KTM 690 Enduro R and I couldn't be happier.
