New Years!!! So excited!! 😄
I love that area, Where the Hell is Randsburg? :32:


 ;D    Yea, can't wait to check out Randsburg finally!  Have been up there a few times, and never went through that town.

Should be nice and warm up there too!   ;)  brrrrr

Sup guys. I went and checked out bikes Saturday and think I decided on a bike. KTM 690 Enduro R (or if I can wait long enough, the Husqvarna 701; essentially the same bike, but cooler because it's a Husky). I rode the used 2011 690 they have at Irv Seaver and loved it! Almost 70 horses, 6 speed, cruised at 75 with no problem, hit a couple bumps/jumps that I found, right at 300 lbs, 6,000 mile service intervals, everything I was looking for. Watched a ton of vids on YouTube and liked everything I saw. The one I rode has 22,000 miles on it, so think that one's out (unless they give me a real killer deal). I still have that $500 gift card from doing the KTM demo day last month. That expires at the end of Jan, so I do have some motivation not to wait for the Husky. We'll see.

Now to start making a list for gear!

690 is a way better bike than the xr650L! Much more friendly on the street vs. the 500/525/530 but still a dirtbike nonetheless...nice choice!

wish I could do that noob day. That would be cool. But then again, I got Todd and Break to show me some ropes  :8:

Thanks for the advise, Todd. I was just planning on some guards. Dirt gear cost is starting to add up! Would rather spend the cash verse spend the time rehabbing though.

Your already over spending buying a new bike 1k for braces n boots verses maybe a broken leg months of rehab and doctor bills kinda a no brainer eh?

Exactly! Plus... I'm a total wuss and don't want to be out on the trails crying in front of anybody. Any brand/model you recommend?

1.) Kyle A - SO RAD CONGRATS MAN!!! You got a ride report? conditions? bike ran okay? did you like it? you get gear/crash yet??

2.) Todd - SICK PICS!!! Although I heard ocotillo was crazy last weekend...and a couple people died  :-\

3.) and it's raining = NICE DESERT CONDITIONS COMING UP  :31: Although I'm hoping for snow up in the mountains!

4.) So...we also need to do dual sport tours to visit airplane crash sites in the desert!
