Nope, and I was happy for it. I happen to dislike the color orange, a lot.

Me 2! When I buy a KTM, I will buy a model with the least orange on it, ("It only has a little Spam in it..."), and repaint/redecal those items in red.

Come ready to ride, fuel in the bike and liquids on your back. That is all.

What bike you planning to ride Luke? Your choice always helps make up my mind on what to bring!

They make high quality bikes that will more than meet your needs for trail and gravel roads with a occasional WFO blast down the asphalt. They are not overly priced. The Honda 150R or 230 with street package is top notch. Check the 150R on YouTube. Good Luck with your quest. Brian

Hey B-Mac!
Thanks for this!!!
I'd heard about the Service Honda's and after researching this, I'm thinking the Junior X is going to be the way to go. 180 lbs, 34" seat height. 250 shoved in the 150r chassis.

You, sir, are awesome. You just solved the RFS chic challenge for the ideal trail bike.

Looks like a solid jacket for a good price... but why don't you just take your KLR and make a trip down here to the Pony?

I'm sure your new bike is very pretty. I'll try not to vomit on it.



My saturday is spoken for, but Sunday might be an option. I sure learned that training for endurance on the road bike translates to jack shit on the trails. Rode a few laps around my woods to test my newly completed bike-friendly layout and I was so gassed I thought I was gonna have a heart attack. Granted, it's a lot of short, steep hills but still I didn't do a very good job maintaining the temple for this year's riding season.

I've got to get in shape or you guys will leave me in a panting cloud of dust.

+1 I use self vulcanizing string plugs and have had one in my rear tire for the last 800 + miles. I like the self vulcanizing ones because I don't have to carry the rubber cement or wonder if it has dried out. The last pack of refills I bought was from Oriley's because AutoZone is only carrying the slime ones that require cement. The one I installed was one of my last from a 10+ year old pack and was still sticky as can be. I carry CO2 canisters and a valved inflation head like this for flats on the road. http://www.bikeparts.com/search_results.asp?ID=BPC324018

Off-road I carried the same CO2 inflator, plus a hand pump, tubes and a patch kit.

Last I knew it was still in production, back in the USA, although the size changed to a 140/80-18
