Great post. Lots of truth. But just to play devils advocate, I've seen stock motors that "have no evidence" of porting or replating that are absolutely done up. Factory teams can make cheater motors look OEM, even to the very well trained eye, of which ... more »

Those 6 Days edition bikes are so sweet looking. Especially the newer all white ones with the orange frames. Thx a ton for ur input. Been helpful. I'm considering the Husky FE 501 based on what u have said. I also checked out some other forums...I found ... more »

Thx a ton. That's really good info. The bike I get won't be seeing the highway. So I dont need to go 65+ mph. I'd be going for the Husky FE 450 but they didn't send it to the USA this year. Which I think I've figured out is the same bike as the XC-W ... more »

Haha....I hear ya. I think we all love to obsess over a new bike purchase. Part of the fun I guess.

Ive been going into dealerships for months asking questions. The clown salesmen dont do a good job explaining. I trust my friends here a lot more than a salesman tbh. And I think I do have it narrowed down quite a bit. I've explained what I need the ... more »

Oh, and can anyone tell me what the supermotard conversion requires? And/or what the best knobbie is that is going to see a lot of pavement? Thx.

I wish it were that simple. Here's my best stab at understanding it... SX/SX-F: moto competitive, high performance engine, stiff suspension, linkage, narrow transmission XC/XC-F: enduro competitive, detuned MX engine, linkage, semi-wide transmission? ... more »

Ya, I know its not a fair comparison. But its kinda my baseline for what I'm looking for. I'd get the Honda and call it a day except for the fact that it weighs nearly 100 lbs more than a KTM dual sport. I'm just wondering which KTM is the right bike ... more »

1. I dont really understand the designations of KTMs. I get that the SX-F line purpose is moto/sx XC stands for Cross Country but what does that really mean??? What is that bikes intended purpose? I mean, what is the difference between cross country ... more »

Malaysia has been horrible in their handling of this since day one. And I think they should be the prime suspect above anyone else until proven otherwise. That said, here is what we know, this wasnt some mechanical failure. The communications equipment ... more »

Added reply in a thread RV, Stewart, Dungey des Nations? 3/25/2014 11:51 AM

Agreed. I think the best team possible would be RV, Bubba, and Dungey. Bagget? Too inconsistent. Barcia? Let's see if he gets the bike sorted out by then. AC? I'd say if he's healthy, he should be the favorite to replace any of those 3 Tomac? If he's ... more »

I could care less about trying to believe Weston is a "privateer". As you said, at the end of the day his bike is pretty good regardless, so it's not like Im looking to give him undue credit. Ive never said the bike has anything to do with being a "privateer" ... more »

hmmm....interesting. What section of the pits is that? Im still inclined to say that he's a (well funded) privateer. But one could easily make the case that he's just on a really small private team. Definitely blurry. I'd say "privateer" still. It's ... more »
