    Allrighty Boys and Girls, Christmas is over, and SOMEONE on here must have got a new Thumper under the tree for being a good Boy or Girl this year? If not, what did we try so hard for the last 12 months?? :lol3

    I got coal in my stocking, but knew it was coming and earned every lump of it! :deal Now lets see what who got what!

    Merry Christmas you fantastic Thumper F*&#ers!

    I picked up a nice used 011 KTM 530 Six Days. Then it snowed--the first time in years in this part of Oklahoma--and I went riding in the snow for a truly white Christmas! God is good, and so is my wife.

    I'm way too broke for a new bike right now. The girlfriend and I have a $200 limit on each other. Not getting much for that.

    200 bucks for me got a CA cycleworks pump for the 690 and a new front sprocket. My limit was much less than 200 for the girlfriend, so I got her a scented candle and a 355 ml bottle of Ginger Ale. Why so little for her? Cause the ride is always better when the going is rough, if ya know what I mean! :lol3

    Nice. I want one, but can never find one with a title when I have money.

    Picked up a 2012 DR650 from a local dealer that had been sitting for months with no takers. I whittled price down $1000 off advertised price over a three week period and finally locked it in in early Dec. Beautiful Florida weather lets me ride almost daily. Really like it compared to my DR200 sled. Planning some cross state adventure rides in near future that I couldnt do on DR200.

    I got a CRF250L a couple weeks before Christmas. It counts as Christmas, Anniversary (Jan 10th) and Birthday for the next year. Totally worth it...

    It snowed, a lot, so it sits in the garage (while we go and enjoy the powder!)

    I got my 640 A back from 2 weeks of electrical rewiring and misc. repairs (as it has been sitting stored in my garage for more than two years) - now it is ready to ride once spring comes... So in a way, it is a Christmas gift to myself! I can hardly wait! :clap

    The 500 is high on my list, I miss my 05 525 exc tons. :cry With a 690 I'm not in a position to complain to much though:D

    Definatley would like to try the 500 though! And the 640, and a WR, and a Tiger xc and so forth, and so on :lol3
