Did about 70 miles with Gimmee this morning, beautiful day to try out the new bike.





We're right about here.



Hunters are out in the woods and of course, spiders.

Congrats on joining the Orange Rage!

Thanks! The seat on my KLR feels like a Barcalounger after a couple hours on the KTM, so I think I'll be riding the pig.

I've been learning a lot about DeSoto & Chickasway in MS. Saturday I rode 230 miles & had a great day. The only snag was my fav place to eat closed 20 minutes before I arrived. Oh well, I learned to get there before 1pm.
Maybe one day some of y'all would like to ride all day with zero sand & plenty of hills.

I heard about you guys through a guy from work and the guy I bought my 200xcw from. Waiting on taking my MSF course so I can come out and ride the range with you guys if you guys are ok with it. Saw your guys all parked up at speck pond on my way to the mx track sunday.

Congraulations

Brett,

Congrats on the new bike. Now you can join the ranks of the orange riders who always comply with all safety regulations, rules, implied, posted or otherwise! I know you will enjoy the bike and yes you will be cheating while riding this bike with someone who is on a KLR! I can say that with confidence since I own both a green and orange bike...

O.C.
