    Bought a 2 stroke last week kind of on a whim. I like it but not sure it makes the most sense particularly when the 450 can do most of what the 2 stroke can fairly easily.. So seeing if I can sell it, runs great for anyone interested.. Guy selling it to me was so confident he even gave me a 6 month warranty...

    I can't remember but I think it was $2800. After that I bought the kick stand, wired up lighting, cleaned it up a little with used but decent plastics off the 450 and I also bought it in Wyoming. Front forks were also revalved with fresh oil other than 40 miles on it last week. As a result, I'm OK getting what I have into it but thought I would try a little higher for now and am in no hurry... In my book I think its worth it versus the others for sale out there right now, but maybe I have that wrong. I guess we'll see and frankly I'm also OK maybe just keeping it too...

    Southern snow report:

    Road trip results are solid snow from SLC to the four corners area. Farmington, NM is a low spot without full snow cover but once you gain elevation again, snow cover all the way to Cuba, NM. Some of the prairie is windblown snow but most of it is deep, axle deep. Passes like Soldier Summit are packed snow with snowplows unable to keep up, same conditions around Monticello. Lotsa water out there in the open spaces, just looking for the melt.

    This will line up to be an interesting spring in the rockies.......:clap

    It is the same one. Its worth $2800. Was just asking because he was going to trade for my 03 525exc if no one bought it but obviously someone bought it. :D

    Cool. Let me know if you want to take it for a spin any time even or even just borrow it... I feel like it rips, I have a little time on a KTM 300 and an old 380. The 380 was crazy powerful but I feel like the sellers claims about it being more powerful than the 300s seem to fit the bill. I've been such a 4 stroke guy it seems a little odd to me still...

    It took me months to get used to my 2-smoker, but now I love it. Super light and nearly maintenance free.

    I leave Monday for a ski trip in SL,UT. It would be fun to have a ski day with you bitches. I could also use a line on a good wax-job for my skis (cue Pluric), and I am in dire need of a ski jacket and pants of anyone is a distributor of anything. I think we will be skiing Solitude mostly.

    Never made it. Weather turned to shit. 30 degree nights in Death Valley?

    As far as Hick's problem. The only wax job I know of ends with it blowing out your ears.

    Doesn't sound pleasant.

    any of you netflix watchers may want to stream "The Thing With Two Heads"... it's about a rich white bigot doctor that has his head transplanted onto a huge tough black dudes body just before he dies. There are complications that result in a mega dirt bike chase from the cops. This is up there with Dust to Glory, but with cultural twist. Think of what your uncle was saying at thanksgiving dinner to prep you!
