Nice. I have been kicking around the idea of another dirt bike but just haven't pulled the trigger yet.


Also, if I ever buy another trailer again it will be all aluminum.

Did it save you $$ by buying it not assembled? Sweet bike either way!

You do save a little on the set-up fees, but this is my first new vehicle purchase ever, so it was more about the fun of uncrating and building it. Only took a hour or so.

Nearly non-existent with the new counterbalanced motor

So I might as well be a complete newb when it comes to riding dirt bikes. I've been riding for close to 15 years, and that's all been on street bikes for the most part. First bikes i ever had were dirt bikes, but never did any serious dirt riding. After moving to Idaho, and taking the 950 offroad more, I got the itch. Obviously the 300 rips, scary at times and I'm a big dude. Right now, we can only ride desert, as there is still snow in the mountains. But in Idaho, you can start at the trailhead @ 3k feet and easily gain elevation to 9k feet on the trail, so the KTM / Husky injected bikes are nice for that. I got the TX over the TE because i liked the idea of the air fork. stiffer in the desert, more plush in the mountains. Also got a 2k discount since i bought it from work! Regardless, I'm going to need a lot of seat time to get comfortable on this thing.

Maiden voyage today

You won't regret that purchase! I love my 17 500exc-f. Can't go wrong with a street legal dirtbike! I've been wanting to ride Idaho. You got some extra space at your crib? ;-)
Just got back from riding out in big bend for a week. No single track but still fun.

Cloudcroft, NM is always nice to go to during the summer, to get away from the heat.

Well that sucks. Glad you're ok. One of the reasons I really don't like to go riding alone offroad.

and then the rear tire came unseated on the rim. I had let some air out to try and get more traction (pointless) and half way back down the trail, flat tire. I converted to tubeless on the rear a while back, and if you run very little air, especially on a rough road, that's what happens. Rode 3 miles back down to the road on a flat, and somehow the bead seated back on. Long day.

How fast are those bikes in terms of top speed over a flat surface?
