Seriously considering it at this point...just having a SM and a full on dirtbike.

But Lord Pete of Zukiland said I need a trailbike, a MX bike, and 4 other types of "dirt" bikes if I want to be one of the cool kids.

^^does that mean you need to trailer all the bikes to the ORV area for each type terrain you encounter or you can only ride the terrain allowed for each specific bike? If the latter, then how do you get through different types of terrain in order to only ride one specific terrain the bike is destined to ride?

I am thoroughly confused and feel I need to spend a weekend with pete to get straightened out.

Pretty much.

The main issue I keep running into is as follows:

The ORV is dirt/sand/unpaved, hence the need for a SUV/4x4
The highway is paved, hence the lack of need for a SUV/4x4

How in the hell can I get to the ORV park? Do I trailer the bikes behind my car to the edge of the pavement, then hook the trailer up to my SUV? Isn't that counterproductive? And how in the hell did I get my SUV there in the first place? What if my SUV is at an ORV I don't want to go to that day? Must I buy multiple SUVs? Do I have to trailer them behind a car to get them to said ORV park before I can trailer my bikes in?

This is all very confusing...no wonder so many just buy a Hayabusa and say fuck it.

Oh shit! I wasn't even thinking of all that. Now I'm really lost.

Will my trailer require 2 or 4 wheels or do I need one of each? With or without brakes? Will I need to trailer my trailer to the SUV? Do I need a different trailer for each vehicle? That's like 8 trailers.

Multiple SUVs, multiple trailers, multiple bikes. . .

this shit is confusing. screw it, where are the busa ads?

kind of what Im thinking, been wanting to updrade that anyway and try the modern 4stroke mx bike of somekind. Also noticed people seriously milkin' the DS scene w/ their old shit for alot more $$ than they're worth

Drz 400 is ideal...but its suzuki's answer to the XR or XRL , of which are big heavy gutless dogs, w/ shitty suspension and too tall of gearing.....all this is what makes it hard to degrade, for me anyway. Just dont wanna spend more $$ and not be happy

full-on dirtbike isn't sounding too bad, twice the performance for the same amount of $$, used to trucking my rides anyway..

That's why Ewan & Charlie are riding them in Long Way Clown, where they ride through Upper Moldavia with a troupe of Albanian Midgets performing with circuses.

One rumor I heard is that Charlie will set a new cultural standard on multilingual performance by making jokes about lighting farts in 17 languages...

Well, looks like I'm working friday so don't need a date. If anyone would like to pick me up some free swag, that'd be cool. Or if you'd like to by me some gear, that'd be cool to.

Yes I know.

On a related note, I am seriously considering selling the Ninja and replacing it with a KLX250S

But the 10 has to stick around till the sun comes back out, I'm already gonna lose enough on it, might as well minimize the loss. I'll make sure if/when it goes, I sell it to someone with at least the MSF under their belt.

Muhahahahaha.

Ground clearance man...ground clearance.

Poll:

Will it get more or less views/offers if I market it as WAFP's ZX-10R and somehow post it on PNW?
