    Yeah I really like the new to me KTM 450

    The CRF 250 just didn't have the power I need..!! And I like to go FAST... :eek1
    I might sell the 250 just because it's like my second place bike now.
    And we all know that second place is the first loser... :rofl

    So if anyone is looking for a great plated trail bike???
    Shoot me a PM maybe we could make a deal... :evil

    Although both bikes look pretty "SIC" in the garage together

    I'm heading up to Verplank ridge tomorrow afternoon to check out the trail conditions up there. It's 106 today with more of the same tomorrow, it will be cooler up there.

    Did anyone talk to Perry yesterday regarding his ride or where exactly he might be going? Talked to his brother & the sheriff he did not show up for work this morning and they found his truck up in the forest (i did not get the location of where they found his vehicle-bad sat phone recption). I gave them the info in his last post about chicago stump & verplank ridge, but thats all i have to go on.

    No spot & went riding alone. I'm in contact with a few others now, and will relay info as it becomes available.

    EDIT: A couple of us will be out before day break to help look. I'll post meeting spot details, etc as soon as I know

    This would be his second night out on his own..!!
    Perry is always one of the best perpared guys on a ride.
    He always has a back pack full of tools and I think he carries a first aid kit.

    Wish I was closer... Because I would be out there first light.
    He needs to be found and fast..!!

    Best wishes for you Perry

    Thanks for the update and super glad to head to hear he is found! I just got a message that he was missing and was more than ready to join a search party to find the guy right now this evening!

    Crazy guy walked out! Any details on what happened?
