    Took the little guy up to CNF today thinking I could get some practice time in under the radar as I'm not ready for you guys just yet. Maple Springs gate was closed and I didn't feel like driving around the moutain in my truck to find another gate.

    BigTodd, was it true that these bad boys were carrying a price tag of mid 14K? I was just cruising the websites to see if KTM was bringing back any 950's. I'd like to get something I could take on longer distance instead of my TE610. 14K is kind of a big coin to drop on 'another' bike. Also, I've never tried an orange before.

    ...didn't know anyone rode a 950 in the Baja...:D

    Check Chapparel in San Berdoo, they had two 950s on sale there, $2K off the $14K price...

    The number I was given was estimated at $13.5 ... pricey for a second bke but compared to a new GS Adventure kitted out the same, it's half

    If I wasn't commuting every day on a bike ... need one too.

    My bad move was for what the GSA cost, could have picked up an SE and a sport tour commuter bike. Couple of years ago I just didn't know any better, thought the GSA would be my perfect "one" bike set up :cry

    That's a trials rider John, on a 2-stroke race bike. Get yourself a trials bike, join the ATA, and go ride the circuit for a couple of years and you'll be well on your way to doing this stuff. In my opinion, nothing hones a riders skills on a dirtbike like riding trials.
    You all knew Cody Webb is a trials rider, right????
