    There is a guy starting in this year's Iron Butt Rally on a 2019 KTM 300 XCW-TPI. Should be interesting to see how the 2-stroke holds up for 11 days of high miles like that.

    Wanted to pop in and say thanks to @uurx and the rest of you guys who helped give me input. Picked up this beauty on Saturday. Met the guy near his house, took a test ride (where I almost dropped it because a stray dog ran out in front of me on a turn), then had him follow me home because I didn't want my first street ride to be an uninsured 40 minute ride on the freeway. Getting insurance taken care of now and already submitted the title transfer info to the DMV.

    Gotta say, this thing is nice. Very easy to ease on the throttle when you're getting going, but plenty of torque if you need it.

    Looks good! Next time don’t ride it home until you have insurance. Not worth the risk of something happening.

    Think you misread, I had the guy follow me home. Only rode it on the test drive, and it's been sitting in the garage while i handle the insurance. So i'll probably be taking it out for a spin tonight after I pay the premium later today haha

    Anyone finding any good moto-related prime day deals?

    I bought an inflater/digital gauge combo for $20 so far...

    Grom would not be eligible, not enough hp. While there have likely been some Iron Butt rides done on one the actual Iron Butt Rally has different rules and regulations.

    Let us know updates or post the link, por favor.
    Very interested in that. :rofl:
    Contemplated one of those for a commuter, but that won't be good for my wife and I's long rides.

    Discrimination! Are they afraid of scooters showing them up?
