  2. Hey all. Haven't been around much lately and haven't ridden in almost two years. Anyway, I have a '14 WR450 that has been pretty good to me but it's heavy and fights me pretty hard while trying to ride technical terrain. First is too tall and fifth is too short despite what people say. It will do high teens mph wise in first and mid 80s in fifth. I think an offroad bike should crawl up trees in first and come ultra close to triple digits when topped out. What years of the xcw are good? Not interested in 4 strokes.
  3. So, I am now the proud owner of a 2021 KTM 300 XC-W erzbergrodeo. I thought I'd just post a follow up here for any other Californians who are tempted to buy a bike out of state like I did... read this and be better prepared than I was. It wasn't HARD, it was just time-consuming (as is everything involving the CA DMV). Buying the bike was the easy part. I bought my XCW from Gresham Powersports, east of Portland, OR. They were totally cool to deal with. All the paperwork was done remotely. I had to get some signatures notarized and then sent them that paperwork via UPS. Once that was in their hands it was a done deal. So, last Thursday afternoon, I left Auburn and headed north. Stayed on Southern OR Thursday night and then drove the rest of the way Friday early am. Got to the dealer at about 10:30a. I was all done there and loaded up by 11:30a. Then, I hit the road back to CA - got home about 9:30p. &%$#@! me that's a long ass drive... 1,200 miles in ~30hrs. Rained off & on in both directions. Got home & rested. Sunday, I rode the bike @ Mammoth Bar (my local rinky-dink OHV area) for a couple of hours to break it in. Went to the Auburn DMV today to complete the paperwork. At least they have online appointments now - you can get in (virtual) line via their website and you get notified via text a number then you monitor the webpage to see what position in line you are. Way overdue. But, &%$#@!. I hate the CA DMV. First I had to actually take the bike in the have the VIN verified - and they won't do it while it's still in the truck. So I unload it. They look at the VIN & engine number and match it to the paperwork/MSO. FFS. Ok. Done. Check. Next I had to prove to them that the bike was approved for a red sticker (a CA thing) - by providing them a copy (I had to give them a printed copy) of a document from KTM (which I found here: https://www.southbayriders.com/forums/attachments/551312/). Of course they could have totally looked at the document online, and even printed it at the DMV.... But, OH, NO... I had to get a printed copy. Got document copied. Back to DMV. Gave them copy. Paid use-tax, paid sales-tax. Got red sticker. Good until June '23. Done and dusted. Did I mention, I &%$#@!ing HATE the DMV? Now if you bought from a CA dealer, this would all be handled for you. But when I called around CA dealers there were none left in CA...
  4. Drove about 40 minutes away after finding this thing at a semi local dealer. First KTM for me. Was on two other dealership waiting lists. These are pretty difficult to get ahold of around here. If it even comes close to living up to the hype it should be pretty fun!
