    I have a few 2018/19-tx/te 300?

    They're small for a taller rider. 6'2" here. I moved bars up and forward and have a tall seat. Much better. Fuel mileage is my problem with the Beta and if I were buying new I'd prolly get a TPI because I don't like be worried about fuel all the time.

    2019 KTM 300 xcw-tpi: Upgrade and crash testing video

    one who farkles.
  3. Dump irretrievable money into it or sell it and buy a trail bike. Expect losses either way. Rekluse will make you happy for a while I suppose.

    Try a 250RR. Less vibes, plush suspension, barely less torque than the 300. IMO, race edition is too stiff if not racing, go figure lol

    Picture Tread! Where did you all ride this weekend?

    Sounds brutal, what did your husky in? Brake failure? Sounds steep?

    Looking to buy a RMX450

    You'd blow up a 450L in equal time too. Get a bigger bike for bursting down the highway at 95; look into a 690/701.

    Suntop Trail: I'm taking it back

    nobody below the top parking lot except for four mountain bikers. Took my wife. She hiked up/down. Turns out it's 19.3 miles. On the way up I would go a few miles, turn around, check on her, go back up, go back down - like a leap frog. The Beta drinks fuel worse than I drink beer! Noticed I was at reserve once I arrived to the top so told wife that I'd ride the road down, fuel up at the truck, and then head up the trail as she was coming down. Not being prepared enough, I didn't check where I would end up by "Just taking the road down". Ended up like 5 or 6 miles north of where we staged from so I headed south on 410 (it's plated), got gas at the truck, and headed back up trail to find wife. Made it back to the truck around 7PM - DARK. Trail is in good condition. Saw another rider on a Beta headed up as we were coming down. He had a very bright headlight unlike my kiddie night light comparison wise. Purchased the used '15 Beta in November 2017. Almost a year now.

    Personally I’d rather the tpi run on mix instead. JMO.

    Head explosions also destroy wildlife habitats for 100 square miles. You saw the math!

    Looking to buy a RMX450

    The Honda is twice the price (450L vs. rmx on sale for $5K). I would think that would sway you. Prolly another $2K to make it street legal so only $3K less. Find the logs of the Australian sheep farmer who rode 10K miles dirt no issues. He did this on two different RMX450Z so actually 20K miles.

    Welcome back; that's a solid buy and a good bike to have even for an experienced trail rider. Get out there and ride!
