    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    Something so simple, so bilaterally agreed upon, and even it got fuxored as a way to nudge colleagues into supporting a tax increase until it was stripped from the final bill like a used up hooker. Politicians suck. Government sucks.

    Firepower Lithium Batteries

    I'll definitely hit you up later this summer once my 790 Adventure R comes in.

    Being charged extra by the government to legalize reduction of hearing risk doesn't sound fair at all to me. This is why I hate politicians.

    KTM Demo Truck to Visit Columbus

    You should enter my name into the system and score that $500 KTM credit for me... ;-D

    Pricing Announced for KTM 790 Adventure

    Thanks for posting that @Qman - that's pretty validating of the 790 and not very good news for Yammy. I'll be the first will eat crow if the 790 Adventure R has a bunch of first year model woes followed by more next-year China manufacturing gremlins, but I'm pretty excited for the European reports to come in any week now. Another friend and fellow ADV rider @Firedog just put his deposit down on one tonight.

    Pricing Announced for KTM 790 Adventure

    I really want to but I don't honestly think I'll have it by then. I've been told "probably May," but who knows. More likely I'll have the Strom. Nonetheless, yes, we will be getting into ADV stuff :-D.

    2019 Supercross Season

    I can't remember if I mentioned it but a friend and I motorcycled to the High Point MX event near Mount Morris PA (close to Morgantown where I grew up) and really enjoyed it. It's a great track to see the action - you get pretty close. We're planning to go back this summer if anyone wants to come along.

    Pricing Announced for KTM 790 Adventure

    Sorry for the delay Shoop, I don't know why I didn't get a notification. Casper when you look at the components used, I don't think it's out of line. WP fully adjustable shock and forks, lean-angle-sensitive ABS, traction control, a gazillion modes of each, a proven engine, lower weight for its 95 ponies (likely 460ish wet)... It's priced right between the 690 and 1090, and the same as the AT that has lesser suspension and much heavier weight. With shipping, prep, cruise control, heated grips and tax, I'm expecting the R model to cost a little over $16k out the door. I put a deposit on one this past Saturday 🙂and plan to sell my '13 V-Strom 650 as soon as it comes in around May. 2019 models confirmed by techs trained in CA and OH to be built in Austria. Plans are to produce the 2020+ models in China in CFMoto facilities. Lots of people are scratching their heads about that decision. Could be they'll source them from both locations for different markets. Good question. My guess is that the suspension won't be as good but will be priced maybe $250 less, but they need to actually get them out the factory first.

    IMS Show Saturday, Jan 28 2019

    Damnit, now I'm out - I was voluntold to validate a software deployment at noon on Saturday and have a defensive handgun training class on Sunday. Could someone do me a favor and check the KTM booth for a 790 Adventure S? I've got a woodie for one and want to get a sense for when they'll start to appear in showrooms this year.

    Mixed bag but overall good! I've been riding a Beta dirt bike and started down the Trials rabbit hole last winter but re-herniated a disc in May. Got it operated on in October and have been rebuilding my core since then. How have you been?

    Traveling with Bob/Wojo and my friend Lenny, to arrive by 11ish Saturday and staying until 2 or 3 before grabbing lunch nearby then heading back to Columbus. I'm hoping KTM has their 790 Adventure S there, but even if not, I want to scout out the other ADV and DS offerings.

    2019 Wayne thread

    Anyone else almost always head into Scenic on the right, then realize Main dropped to the left? I think I've done that three times then turned around, wanting to go back and see what Scenic is all about.

    Hatfield McCoy trip?

    I've been wanting to ride the Hatfield/McCoy trails on my 350RR-S. Not sure what kind of a rider I am - I can get around pretty much everything at Wayne and the mild hill climbs at Perry (can do the far left gravel cliff path and waterfall when it hasn't rained for a few days). Also had a blast finishing the Grassman family enduro but had to tap out of Flint Ridge's DS after 10 miles of exhaustion. If that's close to y'alls skills, I wouldn't mind joining.
