    Welcome!
    I dont post much but lurk daily.

    I have an 09 KLR bought it new in 10 and have about 13k on it. I ride about 70-80% dirt roads. My .02 on tires: Ran stock tires 2 rear to 1 front. Tried Shinko E700s.Good traction (way better than stock) but the rear wore out at 1800 miles. Put a Shinko 244 on the rear and still have the 700 on the front and wearing well. Have about 3800 on the 244. Good traction in dirt, again way better than stock and some better on dry pavement but it is loud.

    Just picked up this little beauty of a KDX two smoker from a buddy in Florida. Pretty much everything is new/rebuilt/replaced. Plan is to get it tagged, but for now it's offroad only. I'm taking it up to Mill Creek OHV area Wednesday for a break-in ride. Anyone who has some time off and wants to get dirty/muddy/wet Wednesday is welcome to join in.

    It is a good system and it almost always works. Everyone, even Doc has made mistakes using it.

    You have to use it, screw it up and figure out how to fix it.

    Once you do, you and everyone involved will understand it.

    No its not that.

    Its a genuine way to not loose people when riding in a group.


    Now, NEVER ask Doc about his Tattoo, and NEVER ask Ted about wearing panty hose.

    otherwise, you are totally safe!

    lets see here, its late, but let me try JOe.

    Loose, is like... well... someones mother, that has seen alot of ... you know, action.

    Lose, is like an unsuited 2, 4, 3, 9, and a jack in your hand against, 5 spades.

    did I cover that one?


    People continue to make and eat ( as I do myself) things with beans in them and refer to them as Chili.
    But, true, actual Chili has no such filler ingredients.

    Oh and Stuckin, you can never EVER disagree with JoeNuclear, especially about political type things, or he will follow you around and try to point out every mistake you have ever made, you know in the name of being "funny"


    :rofl

    Oh and Joe, I actually am a native Arkansan.

    I have heard those KDX bikes are a hoot, I would like to own one someday, hopefully before im too old to ride a 2 stroke anymore.

    a nalgene, or Sigg bottle of castor 927, and you could be good to go for a few hundred miles of fun!

    you need to hurry up and get that pebble out of your uterus, its making you an asshole.

    :rofl

    maybe hold on to it a bit longer, and you can make a pearl, a gross, ugly pearl that no person would ever want but still.
