Glad you guys had fun. I was ready to come down and had to make a last minute trip to Prattville before sunrise to pick up some catalogs for my wife's company. Didn't get back until late in the morning.

Looks like a large time was had by all.......

It starts by replacing the entire bike with an '03-07 KTM 450/525 EXC. :buzz


My .02.
Does this count for the shortcomings of an XT225?




I felt sorry for Karen after I got my KTM so I bought her one too.

Let us know how you like it compared to the 225. And be very CAREFUL out there.

Can't wait to ride the Dream-sicle!! You can bet I'll be careful not to let it throw me though. One titanium dosage is enough for me!

In my experience they drag a bit, hard to find neutral. I took a couple thousandths off the back of the basket, smoothed up the fingers and my bike was fine until last weekend, I'm about due for an oil change though.

Congrats on the new bike, Karen! I think you'll find it to be quite exciting.

Don't forget to Keep Two Motors


Also, I sure enjoyed meeting cigarjack

and 84blue

Good peeps! We stayed up late drinkin beer/smokin cigars/tellin stories around the fire last night, time well spent. Cigarjack was headed north and 84blue was headed east this AM; safe travels, riders!

Had a great time at the clinic with you guys! I definitely want to get up and ride when I'm down in the area. I'll keep an eye on the forum. (I'm the guy with the Vstrom)

Strom guy did the Stromtroopers proud; he's an ADVer, but I've already forgotten his handle
