Had an amazing time on my trip to the Smoky Mountains! Click here for some of the highlights.
Awesome!! Missing my 08 Feejer right now. Planning on replacing it possibly with a 2013 or 2014 next year to do some riding with my dad!!
I've been following some of this rain. Looks like I'm going to have to alter my plans. I'm thinking of keeping south of I70. Perhaps do part of the BDR, but find some different, less challenging roads to ride. I've ridden quite a bit of off road, but be buddy who I'm traveling with hasn't. I figure if we get into something that's too much, we can just find a different road to take since there is really no place we need to be or get to.
Good plan. The southern part is just fun and fast. There are challenging bits if you want to take them, but you can skip the technical pieces if you want to. To me, that changes once you hit Ophir Pass and Corkscrew. The other bits that were outside of my comfort zone were north of Buena Vista, where you have some rocky, rutted, technical woods parts that will get the blood pumping. I was hurt at that point, and all I could think about then was not hitting a tree.
About 4k miles, Lots and lots of extras including:
Firstgear side bags and top bag
New tires this spring
Installed 12volt plugin thing
Several little guards for brake reservoir and those parts
Well taken care of.
P.M. me. It's a really nice bike, ready to go. Best looking color scheme IMO. Bought it for my Dad to ride while he was back on furlough. Asking $5,200 including everything, or $4,990 and I'll sell the $475 Firstgear bags on Ebay.
Well, I survived Colorado. What an experience.
But my ribs have felt better:
Very nice!!!!! Well, except for the whole sore ribs.

Any one from Cedar Rapids area planning to go to this one:
Got back from crested butte are a few days ago. Had a great time kayaking and riding 4x4 roads but then blew up my cummins van trying to tow the speed limit.. Anyone know a decent diesel mechanic in IC area?
Hi yall, fairly new rider in the north liberty area. No bike yet, still in the market trying to find a drz400 or wr250r to test drive before I drop my $ on an 01 400exc I been eyeing.
You will have ahard time plating or transferring a plate on the KTM, if it matters
Going to be in St. Olaf at noon tomorrow for a tenderloin if anyone is in the area and wants to stop to say hi.
why is that? its a guy i know who owns it and hes had it plated since he got it and prev owner had it plated as well, have they changed something that makes it harder? or why will it be a hassle? i really know nothin bout the rules of that kind of stuff
Only 2007 and later KTM EXC four strokes are 50 state legal. Depending upon how asleep your county DMV is, you may or may not get it through. If it's already registered in IA, you might stand a chance. I know people who have managed to get a plate and plenty who have been denied and I'm one of them.
Flip side is, register it in South Dakota. They will title anything, all they want is your money.
Iowa no longer allows converting off-road bikes...current registration, or not. When I moved here from IL in 2010 I wasn't allowed to register my 250EXC that was plated in IL. My neighbor moved here from Kansas and was denied a plate on a 450X that carried a current Kansas tag.
Visit the Enduro forums. There's many stories of Iowa DOT knocking on doors and seizing plates from ineligible bikes. If there's an off-road bike that's currently registered in this state, it's only a matter of time.
