My new bike

15 posts in this topic

I purchased a new bike, it comes in the mail on Wednesday. I can't wait until it gets here. I made some room in the garage today. I'm glad it has a headlight since the day temps are creeping up over 110F. Here is a picture:

I'm still keeping the XR650.....just in case I want to go Husky hunting. :)

Jack,

Great choice for the twisty stuff. From what I have been told all of the top GNCC riders have 2 strokes. My friend is strongly recommending that I get a lighter bike, I just don't know if I should get an electric start 4 stroke or an easy starting 2 stroke.

Good to see that you will be riding soon. Are you replacing high speed BAJAs with trail riding?

Shouldnt this be in the Orange forum?

Nice bike, but suffers from Erectile Dysfunction, shove some Viagra up that tailpipe.

Nice bike Jack. I'm seriously looking into one of those too. It would be nice for the tight singletrack up here in the Northeast.

Yeah, I'm going to slow it down a little and run some enduros and hare scrambles. I am still planning to run the Baja 1000 at the end of the year though. :D

BTW, Needsprayer, those trails I took you on when you came to Phoenix have been closed to motorized vehicles. You are lucky you got to ride them. :)

Not really, maybe Honda should know that another die-hard red rider has jumped ship because they refuse to make a competitive bike that is reliable.

LOL, yep that silencer is a little pathetic looking. However, it is so quiet, you could ride the bike around the inside of a church without waking Needsprayer up. :D It is perfect for covert riding in limited access areas, not that I would ever do that. :)

It will be street legal and plated by the weekend. :)

:D

I spoke with a guy yesterday out riding his new 2005 300exc and I was very impressed with the bike and he was loving it. KTM makes some nice stuff and they come with the little goodies we all add to our Hondas. If I was going to go back to a 2 smoke the 300 is what I would get hands down. Have fun :):)

I don't know anybody whose had a bad thing to say about the 300EXC. It's a super versatile bike for a 2 stroke, lots of fun, very relaible, inexpensive to maintain, and something I'd like to have :)

Sorry to hear that Pima/Dynamite is closed to motorized vehicles. That is a great riding area. There is a powerline road that goes to Tombstone that I have yet to explore. I've promised myself to get out there this summer and take some pictures even if I to go there with a quad riding friend.

That is sweet! If I get anymore bikes it will be a KTM 300 exc and Service Honda CR500AF. If I had the money I would like to do the GNCC series and the 300exc would be the bike I would do it on. Maybe one day.

Yep, super performance, standard equipment and reliability. Clutch holds up to abuse. Foot pegs don't fall off.... Maybe we should all get one.
