    20200918_123844.jpg Dehumidifiers? My mistake, thought this was a moto forum?

    Spent Friday exploring N Fl and S Ga dirt roads. Found plenty of humidity, to stay on topic.

    First time out with the new to me Sena comms unit. Enjoyed streaming tunes for much longer than expected, cell towers must be reproducing in these parts.

    Thanks Mr C! It was acquired more than a few years back after apparently fruitful research. Still incredibly happy with the old RFS, it’s capabilities continue to vastly exceed that of it’s current caretaker.

    But realistically, Iconic might be defined herein as “Clapped out 18 year old 4 stroke” and/or “ Praying I can get another years worth of hours out of it before it grenades catastrophically”!

    My wife has a 2003 KTM 450EXC just like yours (except yours looks like a 400). Nice bike. :thumb

    Well then, add me to the list of folks congratulating your choice of mates and bikes.

    Mine is an '02 400MXC. Sold to me as an EXC but as a Team Orange newbie I didn't know any better. Worked out just fine here, no problems with the close ratio tranny. Big suspension and brake upgrade from the XR350.

    I have learned the expensive way. It’s better to chicken out than go submarine.

    I got 4 for $25 straight outta Wuhan!

    They are kind of shitty, so I used the internals from the factory set. Fine for a street bike that is not on the ground normally.

    Supposedly by the time the package arrives, even if it was contaminated, the germs are dead. Note to the uninformed, don't select overnight air when buying from China. :rofl
