    Good to see your back. Your add doesn't come up when we click the link as you have to be a member of KTMTALK . What are you asking? I have a few guys needing bikes.

    Tentatively, yes. I have ridden my 250 a couple of times but I keep re-aggrivating an injury in my chest from the leg-break crash. So now I am off of bikes until Sept. when I head out for the KTM rally in CO. in order to try and heal the chest some.

    Meet at the Sinclair gas station(formerly Chevron) at 5:00 PM.
    Mountains, trees, desert, rocks, water crossings, maybe Spooner Summit, Comstock. Gas/ snack stop(s). Quick pace, moderate to difficult. A few XR's already in. More big fun.
