    Ft, Lauderdale dirt bike shops

    http://www.atv.com/dealers/wmr-competition-performance-inc-4236.html WMR Motorsports in Stuart (north of Ft Lauderdale). Really good KTM shop. It's right off of I-95. Jot down their phone number and give them a call if you have trouble finding your way once you're off of I-95. They are located about 1 mile off of the interstate in a new strip mall type of complex. http://www.floridasportscycleandmarine.com/ Florida Sports is also in Stuart. This shop is about 5 miles from the KTM shop. They sell Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki and Ducati motorcycles. Their shop is dirt and street but they actually have a pretty good selection of both including helmets, gear and tires. Good group of guys. Ask for Brent or Dave if you have any questions.
  2. I've really grown to love this bike. After dual sporting with XL600's, XR650R's, DRZ's, an EXC400 and even an 1150GS the X-Challenge has grown to be one of my favorites. I commute 86 miles a day to and from work (75% on I-95) and spend the weekends squirming through sugar sand in south Florida without issue. Extended (week long) trips are simple as long as the rear subframe is loaded properly. Fantastic thread BTW.
  3. +1 on the Olympia and Klim set-up. Very good gear.

    Video: ISDE 1982 Czechoslovakia

    Years ago there was a KTM shop near my home located in Macon, Ga. It was named Performance Cycles and it was run by Jeff Hill. This was in the early to mid '80s. If I'm not mistaken Jeff rode ISDE. I purchased my first (and second) KTM from Jeff. A 1981 495 enduro and then an '86 125MX. Did you know Jeff? Am I remembering correctly regarding him riding ISDE? Thanks in advance:thumbsup:

    2005 XR650R Suspension

    The set in that link are actually new (that's my post:thumbsup: ). An 11 rear and a set of .47 for the front. Also included is a rear shock assy from an XR650R that is in very good condition and ready to send off for revalve. I was asking $150.00 for everything + shipping costs.

    DOT approved front tire choices, whats yours?

    I'm just south of you in Port Saint Lucie. Drop me a line; it would be great to have another XR owner to ride with. I have an '00 that is plated so I can ride up to meet you if you like. BTW, I'm old and slow:ride: Tom
  7. Congrats!! I have a Florida tagged XR650R. From what I understand it typically is not an easy thing to do in this state. Have fun!!
  8. Got it, thanks anyway TAS

    West Palm Beach Florida

    Port Saint Lucie here. Not too far up the road. My wrist is still healing from a nasty high side but I'll be ready to ride again in a month or so.

    Doug Harvey Suspension

    My '01 400MXC was done by Doug; great job. Tom Flemming is another who has done a lot of suspension work for the Florida Trail Riders group. I hear he is phenominal. He has a set of 42 and 44# springs for my front end, just need to find some time to meet up with him and get them installed.

    Opinions on '94 Aprilia 280 Climber?

    Hap, Thanks for writing. I'll call tomorrow about the shipping and the bike (we have company this evening). Thank you, Tom

    Opinions on '94 Aprilia 280 Climber?

    I'm going to give him a call and see if he'll meet me half way. That's about 800 miles each way. Not too bad for a weekend. Thanks, Tom

    Opinions on '94 Aprilia 280 Climber?

    I think the trials bike shipping will be inexpensive, it's my KTM that has me worried. All of the quotes I've received so far are pretty high, even Forward Air. They're wanting ~$550.00 to ship the bike from SE Florida to N. California. Thanks for the help though. I've got two great opportunities right now and I might just have to suck it up and pay high shipping charges (although my wife will neuter me in my sleep)! Tom

    Opinions on '94 Aprilia 280 Climber?

    Thanks for the info but it looks like the Aprilia deal has fallen through. I got a call yesterday from a fellow in Northern California who has an '03 GasGas 280 Pro he would like to trade. The bike is at Lewisport (his sponser). The only problem is the shipping costs from SE Florida to N. California. If I can find a way to ship that doesn't cost me $500-600 I'd jump all over the bike.

    Oops! The bike I'm trading him is just an evil HS machine! The 453 kit really brings that 400 engine to life; it seriously pulls hard. With the starter button was switched over to the left hand side of the bars and the Revloc clutch hole shots are pretty easy. Leave it in second gear, line up, run like crazy, push the start button while mounting and as soon as your butt hits the seat hit the throttle. I've seen videos of the guy who owned the bike before me just leaving everyone at the line in Senior A. Thanks for the feedback, hopefully everything will work out. Tom
