I love my Motard. . .

Even though the headlight issue me off and i'm tired of phucking with it I love the riding style this bike brings and the hooliganizm that happens every time i kickstart it and take off down the block. BTW, Wal-Mart management did not think the vertical drops off of their loading dock were too funny The guys in the automotive department sure found it entertaining i love my motard

They sure are fun to play with aren't they? Make my 919 feel like a cruiser.

Kawasaki EX250 (dead due to mechanical failure)
Kawasaki EX500 (on loan from a friend)
Pending, bikeless once the 500 gone :-(
Want Husky 510SMR or KTM 690 SMC to continue the hooligan activity






after finishing my learning stage with the ninja 250, i think i'm moving to motards instead. My problem is finding a good one that can handle some light offroad, isn't too heavy, and doesn't cost a fortune. Ideally i'd love the Aprilia svx, but 150-200 service intervals aren't much fun.... and the drz400sm is a little underpowered from what i hear.....
Husky 610s are nice, and so are KTM's but pricey! It seems cheaper to stick with sportbikes, despite the fun the motards would offer....

I'm not sure I've seen a KLR supermoto'd but I will tell you this. Unless it's the new model it is a big, heavy, sluggish bike. It's power to weight ratio is not very good and it's suspension leaves a lot to be desired.

Now there are a lot of them out there, parts are easy to find and after market parts are plentifull, and you can probably pick one up pretty cheap. So there is all that.

Get a DRZ400 in dirt trim for ~$2000 and then wait for a set of DRZSM wheels to pop up. You can switch between dirt and street setups in half an hour and (although slightly underpowered) that bike is as bulletproof as they come
