    Besides riding, I like to fish for largemouth bass, panfish and an occasional trout, music, photography, oh and hiking....as long as I'm scouting for a motorcycle route. Who wants to use their feet for something other than standing on the pegs.

  1. Finally ditched the 11 year old 450 (well, not really ditched....it's still in the garage, but probably won't be seeing much action anymore) for a modern scoot. I had to actually sell the street bike to get the new dualsport, but I wasn't using that all that much either. So Friday night, I brought a new FE 501 home from Moto Forza. Today I gave it a 100 mile break in ride, changed the oil and gave it a once over. Tomorrow, it will probably hit the dirt at Big Bear. All I can say is man, what a trail bike! The only thing wrong with it is that it's too tall for me, more so than my other bikes, even with the low Seat Concepts saddle I had installed on it during prep. Not so much a problem on the trail as it is at stop lights and signs on the roads. Besides that, the bike fits me really well, feels really light and flickable and the suspension even works well, in spite of the fact that it is set up for a heavier rider. I've never had a more comfortable ride on a "out of the box" dualsport bike before. Gonna love this, I can see.

    Very tempting.....
  4. The Wave

    I like the both the bike and jeep wave. Makes me feel not so isolated and like I actually belong somewhere in this world. If somebody waves at me while I'm busy diving into a mountainside turn on my sporty bike, I just nod at them in return and don't worry about the rest.
  5. Yes, they only have regular in the pumps.

    That would be my dream bike if I had the money for it!

    Good stuff!
  11. Looks great. Was out there (on that very trail) also on Saturday, enjoying the fine weather and dirt conditions. Was riding the 300 though. Maybe the 125 will be brougt out on my next ride out there.

    Welcome to the forum! Nice video.
  13. McCain on Saturday?

    Rainy is okay. Snowy can be a pain in the butt.
  14. About time I joined...

    Welcome fellow TE 450 owner. Yep...some day I will retire my 11 year old steed in favor of something like a new 501.
