    Geek, if you and Duke ever got together the combined suckage would create a blackhole severe enough to pull the entire earth, solar system and much of this arm of the Milky Way into it before riding off across some awesome extra-terrestrial landscape.

    :D

    P.S. Great shots!

    I've seen a number of pictures of your bike on different forums (Facebook?)Still to my mind the best looking Adventure out there. She looks nasty. Two thumbs way up.

    I think you are looking for these - http://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/HDB_Shop/

    You can find lots of reviews of them on this site. I see lots of people with them, mirrors fold in for offroad, people seem to like them.

    Why I own a KTM Adventure:
    Ride 500 miles of dirt.
    Sit a few minutes.
    Listen to the silence.
    Take the picture.
    Ride 500 more miles of dirt.

    Can anyone guess how I got this photo angle? :D

    Sandwash Basin in Northwest Colorado is 157,000 acres OPEN to OHV :ricky

    [​IMG]

    That's 245 square miles of nothing but fun!
    I highly recommend it if you have the chance.
    This area is so sparsely populated you can ride single track and dual track for days and not see another human.

    In fact you are more likely to run into packs of wild horses than other people (and we did :thumb ).

    Everything you see in this photo is part of Sandwash Basin (and 100x more):
