    Let me know a daily rate for the 390 adventure. Hopefully it's less than $1m. JAS rentals. With a little squid sticker on each bike. $$$ dinero grande

    Send it to Ohlins headquarters in Hendersonville. Could even make a weekend mini vacation and hand deliver it. https://www.ohlinsusa.com/service

    Giant mushroom? Arrrrgh! You can't make me! I'll do lots of scary, high risk things, but eating mushrooms is not one of them.

    ADV Ride Sandy Somethings…..11/26 & 12/4

    Almost anything could handle the dirt/sand roads at Frances Marion. (mute the music - this was the first swamp fox video on the youchoob). The trails there would be a bit difficult on anything less dirt bike-ish. They are wide, but pretty deep sand. Enoree (Sumter) is trails only...

    Interesting! KTM is never afraid to have a zillion different models. This may be a recording: I struggled a bit to ride the 790 Duke fast. I'm sure I could get used to it; the exhaust heat shield pushed the heel of my giant size 12 boot out, and I felt like I was sliding into the tank...

    Good training info and links

    This is great. Would be a good one to re-watch once in a while.

    Hoping hoping hoping 690 goes this weekend, then 450 in the door shortly thereafter. Also looking to do a couple Frances Marion/Enoree weekends one Dec., one Jan. once the 450 is here (and has real tires), one day on the M/C one day on gravel bikes. Pretty awesome spot for dual sport.

    Hey, it's a bird. The things with hooves are what give people heart attacks and high blood pressure. Go birds. Hard to believe a person can survive eating birds.

    Good news for people that like to crash!!!!

    How foolish of me. Of course the answer is EVOO. I bet the exhaust smells nice when your rings are a bit worn out.

    Can we argue about oil here too? I think you all should use Rotella in your motorcycles. Engine, transmission, forks, blinker fluid, everything.

    Very, very, very well played. I wonder if Mr. Knitter can knit? He must come from a long line of knitters.

    Hunter S Thompson quote. He was a journalist and a bit of a nut. A brilliant nut. He wrote for Car and Driver and Cycleworld years ago. Perhaps take his quotes with a grain of salt, as he did commit suicide. On the other hand, he had his ashes shot out of a cannon, so there is that.

    I will hit you up as soon as I am sand ready - it will happen, trust me!

    For Sale 2001 BMW R1100S ABS ** One Owner! ((also)) Bridgestone AX-41s: Bestest Tires Ever or Colossal Trainwreck?

    T700 has that engine....that's why it's on my short list! But yeah, even trade is a joke. FZ-07 is $8k new. 690 Enduro is $11k new. I sat on one and it was so small it felt like a Honda Grom. Absolutely no interest. Actually I lie, I'd take the FZ-07 plus $8k in cash, then give him his...

    I think you have to win a couple races against some fast guys. Too. Might be a lot of races. And a lot of fast guys.

    1st of all - good on you for speaking up. Would pitting have put you 1/2 lap away from Ahole? Having raced MX for 30 years, nobody would talk to the promotors. There could be an unexploded bomb in the middle of the track, and the riders would just bitch to each other. Folks don't realize...
