So I have the pleasure of frequent interactions with [MENTION=4838]1MEANGT[/MENTION] 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:

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:

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?

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.

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. Don’t 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.
