One of the locals, a lurker, just got a killer KTM 990R Adventure.

Made me really jealous when he came by to show off that beast.

I might get an orange bike one of these days. For some reason when I'm on the trails, I'm always chasing an orange bike. ;)

I'll let you lead the ride next time. But this Sunday I'm in front. Sunday at 11am we leave Pine Lake in Tar Hollow State Forest. I have a general route but will be checking trails I've ridden and scouting any others I might come to. There will be mud, there will be big rocks and there will be miles of road if necessary. Come ready to ride, fuel in the bike and liquids on your back. That is all.

Ok, I'll ride the 640 next time

We can trade for a while next time, just reinforce your light brackets 1st


Oddly, until I bought my 250, both KTM's were silver and my Honda was Orange

I've owned two Katooms, and neither was orange. White/purple and a black one.

Not even a little orange? Not even the KTM letters?

Hmm, I can't decide where I want to ride this Sunday...Perry SF, TH, or maybe Redbird in Indiana...

Perry might be busy with opening day...the crazy caveman riders will be there though...
I've been wanting a guided tour of TH from Luke...
Redbird is a night ride...

Decisions, decisions...

I'm planning on heading to TH. I'm guessing Perry is going to be a mud and quad fest.

Never been to Perry, but given the way everyone describes the amount of mud and it's odor, I'm guessing that most of southern Ohio's septic tanks drain into Perry State Forest.

None :( All lettering is black







My two 2stk 250's, and 495 were white with blue, the 93 300 was white and purples.

My old 420 had some reddish orange going on but as you can see the jersey was RW&B. I wish they still made the rear tire, 5.10x18 Terraflex, it was like a TKC on steroids with knobs the size of kids building blocks.
