    not even v funny tbh. a little drawn out now. its more comical that you guys think downshifting to a stop in any vehicle - car, truck, bike isn't the correct way to operate it. but lets not beat a dead horse. its time to worry more about important matters like why small cc 4stroke carbureted dual sports are basura...and what everyone plans for building bunkers are.

    i think it was mostly a misunderstanding, i didnt explain myself well enough when i mentioned something about excessive engine breaking and it made it sound like i was under the impression you could remove it all together like any old add on lol... and it snow balled from there...

    yea they are both fantastic bikes for what they are each respectively
    old technology none the less
    but i kinda like that about the L, that is in part exactly why i want one...

    id be slightly more pissed if and when I dropped a brand new KTM over any xr650l

    I don't get the small cc 4 stroke hate. There are a lot of motorcycles that are not my style, but I still have an appreciation for them simply because they are motorcycles.

    Friends younger brother had a wr250 plated for the streets. He sold it a month later. He said the bike was way to slow for road use

    My first dirtbike was a 92 dr100 I believe that thing was a blast to ride on. Dad got it for me from a co worker had a broken kick starter had to jump start it every time. Kinda miss that little yellow bike.

    still looking for some needed parts here and there slowly, but when the covid put the stop on my ol ladies work and slowed my sales here a lot of stuff just got put on hold.
    chipping away little by little, ill post a pic when I get home

    I hear ya, hopefully things pick up for you guys. I feel fortunate that I didn't get impacted financially by this situation.

    And too many toy projects isn't a bad thing in my opinion!

    Hooray for working for the government. Although, I'm a contractor so I could have easily gotten axed, luckily we have more projects than PMs so I'm safe
