Thought about it but rather have done the motor work myself but sadly, I already have 2 Hondas in pieces and no time to work on those.

I think I found my next project bike but I need to find a 690E someone will let me ride on a motocross track.

For those in the ktm-yam debate, I found this interesting comparison of the age old bmw-ktm debate.

Thanks! You mentioned a while back how linear and controllable the big-bore four stroke KTM's are, it is pretty insane how good it feels coming off the DRZ. DRZ feels kinda "clumsy" now.

Good looking bike Dox. That come from WV?
Oil service will last at least one full ride for me Apparently the valves barely move on the newer XC4 engines, but there's not a very long history to show how reliable they will be compared to the RFS powerplants.

Yeah, it's from WV.

Still not going to "go for a ride" in your white candy van, no matter how many more times you ask.

I had to send my gopro off to get fixed. I must have hit one too many tree limbs with it on that last AA loop at the Baby Burr ride because it just locked up on me and I couldn't turn it off. I told them to just send me the new H3 in return..

Don't get your hopes up video haters...I still have an older H1 to bring to Crow.

Hey Sion, did you get the XR fixed this past weekend? If not, maybe you could get BuildIT to loan you his YZ426 since he doesn't ever ride it.

I've been too lazy to ride much of anything recently. We all go thru slumps from time to time. As for the YZ it's still for sale.

Battery removal/replaced fixed mine when it wouldn't turn off then shortly afterwards it wouldn't stay on. I deleted all the files on the SD card including system files and it went back to fully functional.

Controllable, More than likely the number one reason the SX-F model never wins a shootout in the magazines. 90% of the people who buy a 450 can't use all the power, yet always want a big hit. When a pro tells you more power wasn't needed, smoothing it out and making it usable was and being able to get it to the ground was important, the local rider isn't going to need it either.

A friend of mine says he can barely hold on to his CRF450, has too much power. Told him to put the stock pipe back on and master the tamer version 1st. He didn't seem to think that was a good idea.

Those are integrated saddlebags like a ST1300 and Goldwing
