    They're about 250 pounds with fuel, barkbusters, and a skidplate. KTM publishes nebulous "dry" weights which are only useful for comparing Orange Vampire bikes. That's why people assume that the Yamaha wrf's and Honda's off road bikes are so heavy. They aren't really, they just use more honest measurements. Really fucks with the spec sheet masturbators

    My guess is the same people who as of last week were still crowding the fish market in DC. Causing the mayor of DC to have to shut it down for the time being.

    All they have to do is say "free giant foam hand to the first 10,000 fans" and you have a crowd again.

    Or mebbe it'll be free N95 masks.

    "Toilet Paper".

    I hear what you're saying.

    I just had a different experience. My house in Atlanta had a heat pump. The A/C worked great but the heat was always marginal.

    But I grew up in a house heated with a wood stove and no A/C so maybe I'm just wired different. :dunno

    I don't disagree. It's actually way better than it used to be. Windows 10 has really tied the Microsoft platform offerings together in a very user friendly way while still maintaining most of the old methods of doing things for those of us that learned them that way.

    Most of the software I need for work is tied to the Windows platform. So what's a guy to do?

    Tried some new trails, including a creekbed with Texas sized boulders. Sure felt that yesterday. Damn. Can't say that I dominated the terrain, but I rode it. Praise be the Shinko 525 cheater ❤, hydraulic clutches, and grunt.
    Busy day on the trails, but everyone was maintaining social distancing.

    One observation: guys with straight pipes seem more inclined to roost damp & steep trails and dig holes, but they can all ride sick wheelies on the FSR. (Your bike is sure loud, your penis must be huge!)

    Taco took a job as the new advertising director for advertisement rider. Unfortunately he's using this thread to do all his work.
