I was sold a bill of goods v.KTM
 
So I have the pleasure of frequent interactions with @1MEANGT who started bending my ear about these DRZ bikes literally like two years ago. I said NO WAY for quite some time, because I've been afraid of bikes mainly due to the idiots on the roads today. But he promised that off-road single track riding was the best thing ever ...

This guy is persistent, let me tell you!

I caved and started going to Woodstock KTM a couple weeks ago, just to investigate. That progressed into a quote today. Which turned into a credit app... And well... Looks like I've gone balls deep into yet another hobby!

Time to gear up for camping trips and trail riding!

A few pics for all the good people of TCG:

Already planning a Hatfield and McCoy trip at the end of May. And Moab end of August/early September.

Come join us. The more the merrier!

Mr Baytchos 01-18-2018 04:00 PM

:bigthumb: congrats man

Spivitz 01-18-2018 04:01 PM

Man, If I lived in Wood sticks or closer to WI I would absolutely have one.
I'm by Ohare, all concrete, asphalt, too many people.....


I want to rip right out of my drive to the trail!!!

Hang on, tear

Spivitz 01-18-2018 04:04 PM

Has to be a wheelie machine, fuel injected single, four stroke goodness....
Thump on my friends and be safe!

Eagle 01-18-2018 04:05 PM

Oh, btw. This is a 4-stroke 500. I've never ridden a motorcycle of any kind in my life. Although I used to race BMX back in the day. Anyone that knows anything about me at all knows I love speed. I love life too though, and I don't want to die. Also have nearly zero faith in humanity's driving skills. So I've never wanted to ride a bike on the street.

This bike is however, plated and street legal.

:eek3:

Spivitz 01-18-2018 04:07 PM

Hang on, I was just goin to ask how many cc's..... Dude..... YES...... Hahaha
Thing is goin to RIP........

You will be fine, don't twist the throttle too quickly.......

Hmmm... Me and my buddy(NY) have been trying to get together for a weekend out there...

So I know these bikes do road speeds, but is the kind of riding you do suitable for a raptor?

willsmysticcobra 01-18-2018 04:37 PM

My god. First off congrats !

Second off , I'm going to have to get my ass to Woodstock soon .

For sure man. I will probably throw a post up about the trips. Anyone with a dirt bike, atv, sxs, etc can join us. The only issue will be if we do some single track. But there are so many trail systems there we could all ride together most of the time.

Omicron 01-18-2018 04:41 PM

Awesome pickup! Looks bad ass!

Similar to me- I have very limited motorcycle experience, but extensive mtb riding in past. Would love to do off road with something like this. Donít know alot about what to do, where to go, etc.

This now has me highly interested. Have cash, wife approval, and now motivation...my biggest hurdle is I have no where to store it.

Aron 01-18-2018 04:42 PM

See you on the trails soon my friend.

Oh, and BTW, when it's time to gear up, I get good discounts on Fox, ONeal, Acerbis

Chester Copperpot 01-18-2018 04:46 PM

Post-taxes Sportsman purchase or KTM purchase...

:obama:

EmersonHart13 01-18-2018 05:29 PM

So does this mean TCG Tour in the truck again?
