    Definitely two of the finest bikes currently available!
    I am enjoying your return to moto as much as you are. Hal, it is a pleasure riding and hanging out with you and your family.
    See you soon!

    That's really cool. I started MX again after a 30 year break in 2012. It' so much fun even though I'm a lot slower than I was back then. I have a 2016 KTM 250 SXF and love it. I had a 2015 KTM 250 SX last year and it was great too.

    Very nice. Good 250/450 combo. Where did you get Motorex decal for side panels?

    Thanks man. The Factory Edition came with the 2014 KTM US Factory Team N-Style graphics applied.
