    He must hate his buddy if he wants him to ride a 690 on a 2000 mile dirt bike ride. Its a great bike, but it would suck on the t1. Maybe they’re doing the big dog tour of idaho and not the actual one that martin makes.

    I would rather the group just ride the dual sporks they have but they are talking about buying specific bikes for the trip.

    I am familiar with this 500 and it is nice. All I would need to do is add a large tank and power for the GPS. He bought it brand new about year ago for about 9k. Added a few things and offered it to me for a nice price.

    Or save even more time by just tossing new tires on the WRR, maybe change the oil and put a new air filter on it. That is pretty much where I am leaning.

    Remember the marketing trick. Just say a product is something, and people will believe it is that thing....

    There is much truth to @Bitingdog ’s KTM remark. But the worst thing that’s happened to motorcycle reliability has been the Internet. :1drink

    Keep fucking with ’em, boys. :evil

    We don’t get an early AFC game on CBS. We’ll get the Vikings/Chargers late game. :super

    Bears/Packers here on Fox now. Really need Chicago to win. Fuckers. :fpalm

    Well, I have a buddy that’s done it twice on a 450exc and, no sir, it would not be fun on a 690. In fact it would be miserable. Maybe you’re into that sort of thing, like running marathons or owning land rovers, but sane people are not. It’s not a ride for a +300lbs bike before gear, use the right tool fir the job and have more fun. Crf/exc/fe/wrf are what the vast majority of guys that finish the t1 use for it for good reason, maximum enjoyment. Ymmv.

    I had the Broncos/Chargers game on because I like little angel baby Mahomes.

    My Pilates instructor is from Wisconson and said she is a Bears fan because Kenosha, where she grew up, is closer to Chicago than Greenbay. We were talking about football today as she was crushing my spirit with a foam roller.

    Yes, Kenosha is Chicago, but with a slightly better quality of life. Slightly. And more favorable taxes. From Kenosha to Chicago, you can’t tell where one ends and another begins. It all runs together. :fpalm

    In fact, you could say it runs together all the way to Milwaukee. :uhoh

    Which TOI are you guys planning on? The 'real' one with a finisher t-shirt or the Cartman version? :lurk
