    Warmed up the wrist today in the SE. Rented an Africa Twin and rode the Dragon, plus some smaller roads in the area. Donít have any desire to ride the DST ever again, but I tried it once.Attachment 275713Attachment 275714


    - I am here for the stoke
    It was a tough call when I bought my AT, but I got such a good deal on one with DCT that I went for it. Takes a long while, not a ride or two, to get used to it. Now I like it and spend nearly all my time in manual mode. I think I am about ,000 miles unto it these days. Love the bike...a bit heavy for serious off road, at least with my poor skill level.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Maggot motorcycle stoke thread

    Nice Hutash, that AT must a sweet ride to travel and explore on. I donít have a wealth of knowledge in high speed cornering, or very technical trail, but I am sure having fun on gravel roads and trails.
    I can see that DST having its moments of novelty or convenience. And perhaps some practical moments off road, in traffic, or when youíd rather take in the view, or have a bad left foot, or in this case of a rental and you want something easy to ride. But why make a rental different from what most people are used to? And why ride a bike that changes the subconscious acts of shifting? And why would you want to be more out of tune? And why loose the control of a clutch when needed? Switch to neutered to rev the motor for a girl? (Speaking of which the stock exhaust, is confusingly small.). Overall I just missed the connection of a manual.
    Rant aside it is a nice bike, fairly comfortable, capable off pavement, decent power. I still enjoyed the day. Just not ready to trade in my 690 enduro R, but curious to ride a KTM 1090 at some point in time.
    https://youtu.be/NsceUHpoHXo (Also this helped peak my curiosity.)

    Not so fucking fast there, kiddo.

    Fly out in 1st class with your fly rods in the overhead. Get a nice place with beau. Rent a cool bike or get a friendly hookup. Race to some blue ribbon stream in greater Yellowstone. Slay. Race back to sweet digs for delicious evening. repeat.

    ????

    I will put her to the test. Repsol woman.

    Teton Pass; Togwotee Pass; ID 32 from Tetonia to Ashton. Damn near Racetracks, these roads.

    Around the Block - Town/Teton pass/Victor/Pinecreek pass/Swan valley/S.Fork of Snake/Palisades/Alpine/SnakeR.Cyn./Hoback jct./Back into Town. Twisties and Straightaways, Long Sweepers and minimal, easily manipulated traffic.

    Riding in the Park don't suck either. Some mornings, one can dash up to see The geyser go off by 9am and be home by noon. Fun roads too with few LEOs.

    And as stated before, riding through a meandering herd of Bison is both thrilling and scary. You know what could happen. Sometimes you putter through calm and quietly, sometimes you follow the F350 dually through and hope he doesn't stop, or you wait a 1/3 mile away for 15 minutes and enjoy the view.


    Then there's the dirt riding. My friend just inherited an older KLR so I'll have that to kick around on. One could ride across Wyoming on dirt if one so desired. Mostly FS and BLM, well kept and smooth. Relatively. Tons of Trails in the Gros Ventres, Greys, Wyomings and Big Holes.

    Saw the bike mechanic at the store the other day. Gonna need the 40k big tune this spring.

    within maybe three hours of this; and I've never had the faintest desire to ride it. Had a friend hit sand coming around a curve.

    Have stayed around Fontana some, fantastic area.

    Getting my bike ready for 3000 miles through Baja in April. First long motorcycle tour (I put 150 miles on the other day and rmarked "whew, what a ride" after).
    Going to be interesting.

    Wow, enjoy. That is 9n my short list of rides, Its easier for me since the boarder is less then a few hours away. The plan is to ride with a friend, meet the wives down there for a few days then ride back. I`ve driven 3/4 of it in 1980, and it is spectacular. Probably not as nice as it was 40 years ago, but still great. 0lease post a TR.

    Just bought this today. Seller suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and really can't ride much anymore. Only about 2500 miles on it and comes with a custom wheelset and new knobbys (knobbies?) Dirt or street, I've got this trip covered.

    Can the collective offer any insight for me... between 3 bikes it seems for me. 17 fz09 with stolic front suspension, ohlins rear, full akra exhaust and tuned, 2013ish speed triple and a 13ish tuono. No track days just a fun summer rider. I live in ohio so twisty are pretty limited. Price wise they are within the budget with the ape being on the higher end. Previous bikes were 03 rsv, 05 zx6r and 04 gsxr 750.

    I will! Riding in the hot is a new thing for me, and I'm really struggling since most of my rides involve at least a few minutes of being way too cold. No route plan yet, probably a bit more free form with as much off road as possible.

    Here's some off road stoke from Utah last weekend:

    Always wanted to ride one of those 690s. Supposedly similar to a DRZ just more powerful, lighter with better suspension, and an extra gear. Aka not at all like a DRZ.

    Look into a cooling vest. My brother, who rides a lot of hot deserts swears by them. Baja has more dirt to ride then you can ever do in a life time. You can go border to cape pretty much without ever touching tarmac, and have hundreds of choices along the way. He did the Mexican 1000 last year with a team of old farts and had a great time doing it. He ended up ride several extra shifts, but had a good, but exhausting time.

    Nice pics Yukon, looks comfy right now. In a month or so, riding that on an all black KLR would be tough.

    Japanada - damn 1st world prob ya got there.
    All 3 are more than 'just a fun, summer rider'. Seems to me each will cover that easily. Which one is your favorite, regardless of rational thought? Then, which is most affordable, value for dollar? And finally, which one of those will get you into trouble, more or less. As you prefer.
    And if you plan on doing maintenance yourself, which are actually viable?; Def the Yamaha more than the Aprilia, methinks.

    Saw a minty Aprilia CapoNord on CL for $2500 yesterday. As if...

    Subscribed! I've spent some time on the westcoast of baja down to point deception(?) we were on a surf trip, but the road are rugged, dirt, sand, and washboards; By coincidence we stayed in Erinderia (coyote cal hostel) when the baja 1000 was racing through. Quite a sight watching those championship truck drive through town going 80mph. It's been 15 years but I doubt much has changes between Encinada and Cabo.
    'Shipwrecks' a cool surf break along Grounded vessel a few hours south of the boarder has a surf school, might be able to rent or catch a lesson.

    Broke out the ktm today
