I Drank the Orange Kool Aid

 ;D ;D ;D 

Turns out, the previous owner (from Mitchell) is a riding buddy of Fletch's from way back. Always nice to deal with a friend of a friend.

No, I bought it from Randy R. in Mitchell. Kind of hard to read the numbers in the photo but it's a 250, not a 300.

I asked him about the safety wire on the oil filler cap, he said "yeah I learned that from Mike, his filler cap came off during an enduro once."  ;)

Lol... Yea, he did.. I guarantee that bike is perfect! He's anal about his stuff and a really good mechanic. Can't wait for the trails to thaw out...

Sheesh, who's gonna keep up with you  now? Nice bike. The clubs seems to be going from KLR to KTM.
Whos in for a big trip? Alsaka? Moab (again)? Baja?

Sweet, looks fast, but where are the blinkers? How I'm I going to know where to go when following you?

I just swung by a KTM dealer.. they had a nice row of orange.  There were a few more but I couldn't get them all in one pic.   They are all so sweet.  I sat on the 500 xcf-w.  It weighs very little and feels tiny for a 500 thumper.



 But my favorite has to be the 350 xcf-w.    This is my dream trail bike.   47 hp and it weighs like 6 lbs.



Unfortunately $9k is a lot of jingle for a dirt bike!!!

It would look really good in the garage along side your Super Duke...
