look what followed me home tonight...

I got the 2 stroke bug like a few others and found a deal on this 2013 250 sx that I couldn't pass up.

Hopefully get out to break her in this sunday. Maybe fv as my old 450 needs to get delivered to a certain farm boy from IN...

Did you do one of those Service Honda 500 conversions on your old Honda?

I saw the little vid from FV last week, I'm not sure how you can make any bike look like an 80!

You doing the Byron GP in October?

KTM is giving some significant discounts on 2013 bikes, it seems like especially on the 2T's. I almost got one at Woodstock KTM, but missed it by 2 days. Was going to actually go out of state to get one, then this thing popped up on CList. Turns out the guy bought it to ride with his kid at East Dundee which never opened, his kid is going back to college and he is moving to AZ, so just wanted to get rid of it. Got it for a couple hundred less than what all the discounts were without any fees and crap thrown on top.

I was asked to leave MCC the other day as I was dry humping the 300 2t they had on the floor I switched it up and began to tongue the 250 2t Berg they had and I guess that is where they draw the line

Everyone expresses love differently

Congrats C - Love the scoot and glad you are ripping again

Very cool. Now, I feel like the lone wolf buying the 4 stroke
