    Nope. I have a 2007 KTM400 XCW. I've shopped off and on for a 350. I'd like to find a used 350 XCF-W for sale but those that have 'em keep 'em. Could get that plated in MT

    I rolled up to that place on my tired old XR650. Just looking around....i wanted to see the dual tank on the 950 Adventure they had in there.

    "Ever ride one?"
    "Haha nope."

    Guy fuckin' tossed me the keys and said "see you in a little bit."

    I went up eastside to Corvallis and back. Told the man, here, take these keys before I get killed. By my wife.

    True story, bro.

    Yeah, you didn't need the 950 adv.
    With the way you break bones I'm thinking maybe a KTM SX 65 would be perfect for you.

    That thing was a beast. I can't imagine loading something like that up and actually riding dirt. Big John did that in 2014 and he's lucky he survived it. Seriously.

    Brent rode his 950 SE with us in 2017 and '18. It was a beast.

    Had a 2011 990adv and rode the arizona bdr. that bike was so smooth, loved the engine but I was very tired at the end of each day.
    With the 690 I can go much slower had to be moving a bit quicker up inclines with the 990, my eyes had to ride much further ahead.

    I saw you go by my house while I was washing the 350.
    Myself on the 350 and my buddy Jason on a 500 XC-W attempted to go to Dam lake Sunday morning. We made it to the falls and turned around. Cold, snowing and freezing rain.
    took the Railroad crk shortcut and the Skalkaho rye to Sleeping child cutoff. Dropped down 2 Bear to Sleeping Child hwy. 2-3” of snow most of the way on 2 bear. We had a blast!
