  1. Hey Bryan thanks for the reply, I’m past my prime now and get most of my enjoyment from riding 2 tracks, forest roads and the occasional orv trail- no single track. I like to “explore” the forest service roads that no one really rides, but are open. My skill level is probably a 6-7 out of 10. I typically don’t venture very far out of my comfort zone but I do enjoy putting in high mileage days without pavement. And on a side note- I forgot about the adjustable map thing on this bike. After riding and posting my approval on Sunday I realized it was set on standard performance. Monday I changed it to sport or full power mode and am happy to report that this thing kicks aZz. I can honestly say it now accelerates and pulls very similar to my uncorked 650r. Which kind of blows my mind cause it’s so quiet. Anyways, thanks everyone for the input and link.
  2. Night and day. It’s amazing. I just upgraded from 80s technology. Lol. My only complaint is that it’s a little too quiet. I’ll be looking to get back to the deep thump thump my uncorked XR had with the oem high flow tip. Any suggestions?
  3. Got the new pig up here at my place in Cadillac. I’ll be riding tomorrow (Sunday) and Monday if anyone wants to meet up and hit some easy stuff. 2 tracks, orv, forest service roads. No single track. PM me for my cell. Aaron
  4. Thank you Just took her for her maiden voyage in the Manistee Nat Forest. 2 tracks and forest service roads- which is all I really ride. All I can say is- wow. I’m very impressed with it in its stock form. I have bad hands/ wrists and the throttle by wire is amazing.
  5. Longtime Honda XR650R owner-rider. I own 2 and actually love them, I’m just tired of wrenching on them- especially now with all the ethanol, the carbs need to be disabled and cleaned yearly. It was time for FI. I know nothing except what I’ve read online about KTMs but figured what the hell. I called abound, found one, bought it. Lol. So I’m just wondering if you guys can school me on these beasts. Any must do or should do mods or changes? I will say one thing after installing my GPS and putting my own little touches on it, the quality, fit and finish on this bike is unreal. Everything I look at is perfect- even the zip tie placement and alignment. Lol. Thanks for any input and be safe.
  6. 123k acres? That’s the size of some of the parking lots IN the public lands out west.
  7. Deleted by me, simply out of respect for the site. This is a mega controversial subject, one that has no correct answers and is taking everyone away of why we are here. We all love riding and bikes. I’m sticking to that. My apologies to anyone I may have insulted or offended. Best regards, Aaron

  9. Welcome!! Hey bud, don’t sweat the small stuff- you’re riding! And honestly I’d rather ride with a guy whose plastic looked like that than a guy with a pristine bike and gear. You’re riding, you’re learning, be proud of those scars!! And if at the end of the day they bother you that much, throw a couple bad A$$ stickers over them. Lol. Have fun and be safe.
  10. Excellent post

    Waaaa [emoji24] Join a club and help them map it then. Hatfield McCoy is a PRIVATELY OWNED trail system and reaps the benefits from ALL proceeds collected. In Michigan, we have 3x the trails they do and also our clubs rely and State grants and volunteers to do all the work.
  13. Didn’t end up going to ride. Stayed home and worked on the bikes. Here’s some pictures. 2004 XR650R on the stand- my cousins. I’m getting her ready to ride after sitting 8 years. 2003 XR650R with black headlight cowling- mine 2003 Suckie 400 DRZ- my buddies
  14. That’s sweet. Where did you get the mounts?
