Hello from Idaho


Recommended Posts

Finally upgrading my dirt-bikes. I’ve had my '97 KTM LC4 R/XCe and '05 WR450F since new. I like them both, but they are quite maintenance-intensive. I was ready for less wrenchin’ and more ridin’.


I posted the KTM for sale last Thursday afternoon. I priced it where I thought it was a bit high. Apparently, I was wrong. Within 5 hours, I had 15 parties clamoring over it.  One guy called late in the evening and really wanted it. When he found out I had several test rides scheduled for early the next day, he came over at 11:30 PM and put down a deposit without even riding it. He eventually came back Sunday to pick it up. It's been a great bike and I was happy to see it go to a guy who appreciates it.



I am preparing the WR450F for sale this week. Hope it can also find a good home.


For my first replacement, I’ve wanted a WR250R for quite a while. Since being discontinued, they have been getting harder to find. There were none available locally, so I hauled my trailer about 120 miles to get one. Though it’s still in the break-in period, I love it so far!



My second dirt-capable bike will be a ’21 Tênêrê 700 that I have on order for delivery in June. Currently doing farkle research for engine/frame & lever protection and luggage options for tank and light saddle bags.

The fact that there's a Highway to Hell and only a Stairway to Heaven should tell you something about anticipated traffic.
