    Some great singletrack riding this weekend. Bummed that the battery died in the morning cold. I need to carry a spare.

    Fun fall ride over monte christo and down through Evanston to Morgan park. Wore my fat bike gloves and they worked great over the pass at 40F

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Sold, it will be headed to Costa Rica this winter with its new owner.
    How did you like 690r? The local dealer has a 2018 that heís willing to deal on- but I am torn between it and putting a down payment on the Ď20 790 adventure r-

    Mostly logging roads a few quad trails but also commuting and a few highway tours-so would prefer relatively comfortable highway miles.

    Currently have a 250 that I will keep for the rougher stuff.

    I recently bought a 2017 690 R and I love it for logging / mining roads. It is also very capable on singletrack, just have the right rubber in case you encounter rocks or mud (I have separate wheelsets- one with Perelli M-21s and the other with Mitas-07s). The bike is also pretty decent on the highway, but avoid the interstate! The only downside to the 690 R is the mileage and the small gas tank. I just bought a one and a half (1.5) gallon Rotopax to mount on the tail in order to address this matter.

    Maggot motorcycle stoke thread

    Overall I really liked it, and had a wonderful time on it. As Viva said old gravel roads and two tracks were the most fun. I enjoyed it for commuting and running errands too. It did not excel at road miles, seat eventually got uncomfortable and the thumper vibration was noticeable. And the range for going to the middle of nowhere was disappointing, I am opting for another bike over aftermarket tanks. I barely got the best out of its capabilities on small and technical stuff. I donít have a lot of experience there and would prefer to gain that experience with a lighter cheaper already beat up dirt bike.
    Going forward I plan to try some other bikes out. I rode with a crew earlier this year who rode light dual sports with safari tanks, then had medium sized touring bikes like KTM 950s for road trips and gravel. The 690 can hang with either crowd, but at the compromise of not being fully committed to either category.
    I am most tempted to look at the medium sized touring bikes as I enjoy old logging, ranch and mining roads the most. Also at 6-1 I found the 690 to be a little uncomfortable standing up without some modifications. I like the feel of those mid sized touring bikes with a tank you can lean into and bars an easy reach.
    Then there is the fact it is European, and parts cost can be a bit ridiculous when replacing. The trade off is, it is wound up and exciting to ride.
    So I would like to compare a KTM 790 to a Tenere 700. Or a KTM 1090 to an Africa Twin. And a Honda cfl450r to a 525exe. One or some of those will be my next motorcycle. Not opposed to trying and riding a lot of other bikes.

    Thanks viva and Bruce- I am getting more and more focused on the little adv category. I tried the CRF450L. It was great but just a better version of my 250, not the long distance bike I am looking for. I tried the AT and thought it a bit much for my fishing trips down deactivated logging roads. The 790 seemed like the Goldilocks bike for my intended uses.

    Several folks have made long-distance trips on the 790 (e.g., through Siberia, Mongolia, etc.), and have commented on that bikes capabilities and limitations. A lot of good reads there. Advrider.com

    I considered the 790, but found it to be on the small side for me. The 1090 fits me better, but I don't think that I'd like such a heavy machine on dirt.

    I think you are in the ball park at the 790. I have yet to ride one, but my impression is it the shit! I am torn on the KTMs at the moment. They are generally the best you can get, but are they the best value for me?
    If you will spend whole days on the bike, mostly on roads going over 50 the 790 will probably be favorable. If you are mostly going to be on dirt and want to thrash about go 690.

    Looks a lot worse on the POV. The view from the bottom looks like a slide down loose tallus. Still, no fun, at least the slide, the ride looked great.

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

    So this came into my life. The local Harley Dealer is retiring - and this lonely old Honda could get 0 love from the Grampas of Anarchy crowd. So it got to the I just couldnít say no price.

    Itís a 2000 vfr800 with new tires and a new clutch.

    Not sure if what use Iíll make of it. Iíll probably tear it apart this winter to see what is what - but so far it seems like a solid machine.

    Plus itís Scottish (or so the decals tell me) so it canít be crap can it?

    Love that RC51 next to you. All you need to complete the Honda trifecta is an Erion 929.
    Going where the wind don't blow so strange
    Maybe on some high cold mountain range
