I know quite a bit of the ins and outs of web tools. I built my site:

It's really simple, I spent about 10 minutes getting it running. I am willing to put something together in my spare time, no charge or anything, and no promise that it will be super flashy.

Who are you planning on hosting? I have a friend who is sympathetic to land use organizations who I can probably convince to host it for free.

Wow, you have a great memory. Yes, I am still barbecuing. It has taken me a long time to get good at pork shoulder. I am currently practicing ribs and then on to brisket, which intimidates me. I bought a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker to practice on. I would recommend it highly to anyone wanting effortless BBQ. I will be at the festival but not competing. I want to see how Kisor's does this year and a guy from Gallipolis that did pretty well last year.

Or you could go at your old boots with some combination of Sno-Seal and/or Shoe-Goo. Both excellent products that can fix about any leak.
I just bought a pair of the Scouts, nice boots last month. They serve both roles (street and dirt) so even at $250 they kind of save you money.

Revzilla has them for $249 w/ free shipping.

Picture spam from yesterday's aimless wandering out around the state wilderness area north of Zanesville.

Brisket you say?

Zach calls me scary - looks like the two of you have moved into striking distance of an award winning meal. I think he knows some trails too.

That's a great name, I've been using Zach-and-a-half


Where's that guy located? I'm not on KTM Talk

Looks like the brisket state, Texas. Would like his recipe.

Going with money to look at a WR250R tomorrow. I'm pretty sure it will follow me home.
It's this one if you care : http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=833197
Prolly hold on to the KLR until early spring just to be sure I like the WR. If I can find a little space I may swap 90/10s on it and keep it as a long haul traveler.

The Scouts are on my shopping list. I don't know what the weather has been like back there, but have you worn them on a hot day? I'm wondering if they can be worn year 'round or if the waterproofing makes your feet sweat.

Good luck! Was contemplating buying also but recently bought the CRF250L. Telling myself I don't need two 250's. Looks like a good deal though.

How's the CRF250L? From what I read, it seems like the WR is a little dirtier. I looked at them very hard as well, they seemed a little short to me at 6'2". I think this bike in PA is a pretty reasonable deal. I hope to learn to ride offroad better with it.

The CRFL seems to be a capable DS, in the novice/intermediate sense of the word. It perfomed well on muddyrabbit's ride last Saturday. Granted, it won't win any races or be expected to.

Definetly would be short for your frame. I'm kinda torn between wanting to open it up a bit with the FMF pipe/muffler mods and staying stock. It's very quiet which I like.

I fully admit that other factors played into my decision to get the CRF250L, but it is my intent to spend the money to take it "dirtier". Exhaust, fuel controller, tank, boingers, wheels are all in play.

DON'T DO IT!!! They're pieces of junk!!! Just look how the front brake caliper simply detaches itself from the fork at the slightest impact against a rock:




Just kidding... about not getting it. I love mine. That being said, I did just break the caliper carrier, and remove my front caliper from the bike mid-ride.

Caliper is perfect, it just took out the carrier (and 1 pad):


Broken Caliper Carrier:


Good news/Bad news; it didn't hurt anything else (wheel/rotor/me), but they don't sell the carrier separate , I've got to buy a new complete caliper assembly?!

Looks like a great bike & a great price. Congrats!
