Woodstock KTM has a left over 2016 250 EXC-F for that price. Fuck the DRZ at that point.

I'd be interested, but will be out of town Oct. 8-18. So if you happen to set something up after that, let me know.

Craigslist is probably your best bet. If buying used don't just look at only KTM's. Especially depending on your price range.

Few things you need to ask yourself. Like does it need to be street legal? You don't necessarily need a 450-500cc dirt bike. A 250 4-stroke will scare you plenty off road if you have no experience. But will be much more controllable. If you don't need street legal the options open up tremendously. Just do not buy a motocross bike for trail riding. You will probably hate it.

Bruce Jibboo based on the heading due south @ 57 mph it looks like you have your KTM loaded up and on the way to my place so we can rip up the gauntlet?
08-24-2018 10:23 AM
Eagle Oh and also...

Eagle Yep! Not a huge fan or completely comfortable yet... but yes I have.

I'm actually a pretty decent rider with two wheels on the ground on whatever terrain. My "IDGAF / No Fear" genes are working well there. It's really a blast to ride this thing hard on trails and terrain.

Reminds me.... @1MEANGT and I need to get a trip to FVOR planned soon...
08-24-2018 10:01 AM
Bruce Jibboo Not saying I even suggest it but you take it off any sweet jumps and leave the ground at all?

b00sted I've been thinking about picking up some sort of dual sport. But probably something more along the lines of a used drz400. I don't ride my cr250 much at all...I feel I'd get more use out of a street-legal bike.


Baldwin MI looks like fun. I really want to get up there eventually. I never knew Michigan had so many miles of public trails.

1MEANGT Baldwin is a great area to ride and not that far of a drive. Next will be some single track up in the UP.
