  1. Virginia is a bit of a pain, not to mention that the fine folks at the DMV just look at you with a blank stare when you mention it. I ended up buying a used KTM from out of state, already dualsported/tagged, and then it was just paperwork. Just had to get it inspected and thats it.
  2. A previous owner grafted a dualsport kit off a GasGas bike onto my KTM. This past weekend I had a pretty good altercation with a tree, and in the process the horn and the flasher took a pretty good hit. Neither work now. I figure the horn will be simple to replace, but I'm not sure if the flasher will be easy to find as it's the spanish original. Any idea where I can get another flasher if it doesn't match up to what I can find locally?
  3. That's just about the only drawback.
  4. Last month I picked up an '03 CRF230 with about 15 hours on it. I took it on some trails last weekend and was really happy with the way it performed, but when I tried a couple of jumps it felt like the suspension was bottoming out really easy. A buddy of mine is trying to make a deal to purchase an '00 XR400 (way too big for him) and then trade it to me for the 230 and $200. Should I take it? Or should I stick with the 230? I got the 230 based on recommendations from 2 different salesmen, based on the fact that I hadn't ridden in several years and I was mainly going to ride trails, and I figured I would trade up to a 250X in a year or two. I'm a little on the heavy side (240lbs) so I am going to have to pour some money into the 230 suspension if I keep it anyway, would the 400 suspension be adequate for my size? I posted the same question in the 400 forum to get their viewpoint.

I'm putting the same question in the 230 forum, too to get their point of view. Thanks for the advice.
