    We seem SO close now...

    Just curious, what kind of ride time does that equate too. ???? Really looking forward to this e-bike thing.
  2. I agree with being a little upset. I have always tried to support those who are in our sport. I also try to give a second chance. That would leave a bad taste . Shame Zip Ty doesn't reply. At least maybe to the OP. ??? LOL a set of free decals would go a long way.
  3. Yes , I have a problem letting go.

    Perfect quote. " I don't think and 500 belong in the same sentence. "
  5. The 500 EXC with a Vortex mod.
  6. I think the new Triumph Scrambler would make an excellent bike provided the end user rides it like it was intended for. The XE has a little more off road chops, at least going by the the write ups I've seen so far. And still not too shabby of a street bike.

    Large Adventure Bikes

    How do you guys like that new Triumph XE 1200 Scrambler ? Looks like it could handle some off road riding, at least within it's limits. 21" front tire is nice.

    Bike Chocks

    I use a flush mount wheel chock. Cut a hole in the floor, drop then screw the chock into place. Flush to the floor when not in use, folds up to provide a wheel chock when in use. pretty sano.
  9. Any 1996 and newer DR 650 is bullet proof, super low maintenance plenty of support. Parts readily available. We have put a combined 25,000 miles on 2 a 2003 and 2005 with zero problems.

    Woods Poker Run Oct. 7 Bixby, MO

    Can you say if the ride is generally a easy ride. Or do you need to be pretty accomplished. Thanks Cman. [ wanting the wife to ride with me.]
  12. Been riding on the street 37 years, 2 100,000 mile pins, plus a bunch more since I've quit documenting 10 years ago, and have yet to have a street bike related accident. Be safe. Be aware. And a MSF course would be a good idea.

    stripped head bolt

    I have a 03 DR 650se with one of the 4 head bolts stripped. I really don't want to pull the head and cylinder to do the repair right now. My question is will the other 3 head bolts plus the 2 nuts that also secure the head to the cylinder be enough or do I need to pull everything and do a heli coil repair. Thanks, Cman

    Looking to get into dual sporting

    DRZ 400s would do you fine. And if and when you feel the need for more power there is a bunch of after market available. put a Big Bore kit in mine.
  15. As a owner of 2 DR200se, DR350se, DRZ 400s, and 2 DR 650se, I truly feel the DR 650 would fit the bill. My wife loved hers and wasn't too happy when I sold it. Very reliable and not too bad when riding two up. We ride almost always forest service type roads, some trails and pavement connecting the trails.
