Don't give up!
No matter what your skill, alot can be said for the ease of riding tight stuff with a 270lb bike vs a 500+ pounder. At the moment I only have the middle bike in an ideal stable of 3. Sommin like a 1200ADV or 990ADV, my 650 and an under 300lb dualsport.... Maybe like an X450 or a KTM 450. Jack would be happy....JaxWife would be living with her mother.

Looking fwd to the pix EOD/Philly!

I just want to thank you for putting the idea in his head. He would have thought of it on his own, I was hoping to get a few weeks with no camera hanging from around his neck.

That's one of the benefits of full face helmets and tinted visors

Where is waffle house? I need to ride up to LaPlata to get some home supplies.

Had to take the van to work because of travel Monday, but I so wish I had taken the KLX...some inconsiderate moron wrecked on the "Nice" bridge and traffic was backed up for about 10 miles...Would have been nice to skirt the corn fields and tree lines to get up to the front.

2 and a half hours staring at an expedition's back bumper and the daughter's didn't even have enough consideration to leave one of their Nintendos in the van...

I think I found Phillygal's next bike

Here is a cool article about choosing a DS bike. Just in case the seat height becomes an issue. Yes I'm bored

Just ordered lowering links for the KLX yesterday...and she ordered a pair of MX boots today. Seat height shouldn't be an issue.
