    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. :lol3

    About 4k miles, Lots and lots of extras including:
    Firstgear side bags and top bag
    Taller windsheild
    New tires this spring
    Installed 12volt plugin thing
    Several little guards for brake reservoir and those parts
    Never down
    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.
    Thanks!

    Any KTM 950/990 riders looking for a set of wheels? Changed to woody's wheels and have stock set.

    Also have 2 rear tires and 1 front one.

    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.
