Personally, I'd go with the 4 stroke vs the 2 stroke.

Stick with Jody, he understands that motard stuff beddy goot!

Oh yeah Whorenet, never heard from you yesterday, give me a call when you get a chance

426 makes a great motard IMO. . . tell us how you'll use it and we can give you more guidance.

not a place with the bike continuously cutting out on me As soon as it gets up to temp it shuts off. . .hopefully regulator/rectifier but i haven't had time to mess with it. I'm currently moving from Conroe(where i planned to ride the bike through all of the wonderful backroads and forest trails) to Clear Lake(where i have nowhere good to ride) and work 65+ hours a week. KTM time has been no existent lately. I've got brand new Pilot Powers mounted up ready for my first trackday but i have to get the bike running right first As soon as i can get some free time I plan on taking it to Wes(KTMracer) to see if he can get it sorted out for me(unless you know of another option you care to share). I would love to come ride with you guys, street or track, just need to get her sorted out first. I would also love to ride a real supermoto course, but those are non existent in our area. PM me if you have any suggestions, I'm thinking of dumping this bike at a loss and picking up a more streetable motard since all i have in my area now are highways and city blocks

I've been tossing around the idea of selling my XR650l.. May be interested?
11.7k miles, $2800 for MH'ers. the taillight has been modified since, and lost about 10 lbs for the mods. Has an older style XR taillight now, and license plate is relocated.
