I've had a few bikes in the past. This is the one I'm riding now. Paid more than I should have, but I had to have it. First two pics are from my last Alps ride in Oct last year and the last one is a stop on my way to Verdun, FR at a French Helicopter base. My Africa Twin.

I think the first RS motorcycle outing will need to consist of two or three disparate groups... unless you cruiser guys feel comfortable on singletrack.

I had a Yamaha VStar 1100 custom. Very fun ride. So low to the ground I could drag my knuckles on the asphalt!!! Black with flames and all !!
I vote for a nice street ride for all types of two wheelers

Here's the bike I currently ride 95% of the time. It's my commuter and I ride everything from single track to several day dual sport trips on it. It's been a fun scoot and zero problems in the past 9k miles.


2008 Honda CRF250x


Long-Haul mode with Rear Rack, Seat Concepts Saddle and IMS 4.0 Gallon Tank (260-300 Mile range)

I also have a 2008 KLR650 with a 685cc Big Bore kit and some other goodies and a 1978 Yamaha DT125e. The KLR is for sale if anyone is interested shoot me a PM.

It came with a bunch of KTM promo stuff. 5 gal can, tie-down straps, plastic bark busters, FMF silencer, a "Ready to Race" graphics package, plastic skid plate, fluids, spare set of grips, spare set of some of the plastics, a couple other things I can't remember. It's street legal, I took it up to Elite KTM in Loveland after I bought it, they tuned the carb a little for altitude, put in a fuel adjustment screw so I can dial in the fuel ratio on the fly, and put on the headlight, taillight, horn, etc. to make it street legal. It's got a little mirror, lift straps FR/RR and Probends bark busters now (the plastic ones didn't last long). Also has a Trail Tech light switch installed to control the headlights, and a slight change of wiring so that my tail/brake light is on all the time.



Future mods: fender packs to carry tools and parts, spare plastics with "Ready to Race" graphics installed, and change out my tires (rear first, probably going to go with a trials tire and see how it does).

Battle colors...
