After a nice trip to the East Koots its always nice to be back home.....I hate alders...
Ohhhh that's gonna stick isn't it. I've been known as worse. Lol
Dunno if we can possibly live up to the orange order's strict protocols. I mean c'mon, look at that photo closely; notice how that sidestand is placed ever so precisely right in the centre of that tire track! Will we the lowly proletariat be expected to adopt such extremes of anal retentiveness? And how exactly did you ditch all the dirt with which our steeds would have been coated after we rode such a trail to reach such a scenic snow patch?
Wow you guys are sensitive about your little blue bikes, I apologize. when I had my Wr I never had to be that defensive although it was an F
Ha! Size doesn’t .. er ... how long is that 501 kickstand ... er ...like?
You stay out of this until you get a bike
The “I don’t have a bike walk.” ...
What "trail" is that?
Coming west down from Arkansas lake, not pleasant....
Getting a wee bit chilly now , ride was bit shorter than expected. Head back tomorrow or Thursday with lemon drop
There is. Yamaha dealer just down the road from your house
Outlaw Motorsports in Kamloops. I got the last of a dozen they bought up at some point. Paid about the same as 2020 KLX250 camo moneys. Was worth the drive, IMHO.
yup. Too crazy for a 250. Nope
I’ll figure out a bike or not. But my budget is about 4K. And even then, I may go electric for the Westy
Yes! I like this idea. We can find temporary 'clubhouse' quarters at the many local brew establishments.
I already have a Seat Concepts seat I picked up a couple weeks back, and a Camel tank. Looks like I may need to address the rear shock for my lard ass, if internet tells truth. Probably change up the gearing, as this will be my backroads bike, with the Versys still in the stable for highway/overnight stuff, and the occasional dirt trip. It did really well taking me many places I wanted to go the last couple years, but there are some places I would not trust myself to take it to.
I figure life begins in Ymir. The epicentre of Koot rides!!
Im mixed on club houses., well .... till you find a name und motto.
Then, the sky’s the limit ... eh?
Call me sensitive if you like, but the blue versus orange ribbing is all tongue-in-cheek. Or should be. (Whatever you do, don't go to the wr250r threadfest).
The little blueberry is either overweight and underpowered (from the Euro enduro crowd) or overpriced and high strung (per the Japanese DP fans). Personally I find it all alone occupying a nice hole in the marketplace; above the Japanese in performance and refinement but without the reliability drama or maintenance demands if the Euro crowd. Sounds like a few on here agree too. In the end it doesn't matter which bike, it's largely the rider that gets the job done.
So let's get the clubhouse and the soda pop cooler filled and go riding. (Once the snow melts of course!)
Devildog is a gifted rider. He takes the ribbing well. If I had the bucks, ...
Uhm,, maybe I should have used some happy face emoji's I understood it to be all tongue in cheek, of all the people in this
thread I am probably the least bike discriminatory I have owned and enjoyed many brands. as far as "reliability drama" of euro bikes that's ridiculous I have had several KTM's and the Husky my WR was no different . My KLR was more of a pain in the ass than either my 450 ktms or my Husky. If I didn't need my 501 in the winter I would probably own a 350 or 250 the WR is a reasonable bike for local use. But I can tell you enven for an old fart like me after one twist on the right hand with the 501 it would be damn hard to go back to the WR ..enough rambling I got to get ready to ride Ladybird Grizzly tomorrow and Thursday with the 501 at least try probbly to much snow now Cheers
