    Sounds good! Perhaps we can organize a meet and greet ride.

    Curious why going with someone is recommended. Safety issue? Thanks!

    New Triumph Tiger in Rancho San Diego

    Yes! Thanks. I think so too. It's pretty incredible to ride. Lot's of power, even handles phenomenal for the "off road" version. On the back roads it squirts from corner to corner. Good to know, thanks!

    So quick question....where are the "easy" trails other than Otay Truck trail. I see so many "fire" roads in the area....but they all seem to be gated.

    Thanks for the welcome! I'll keep checking back to see when folks are going for a ride.
  7. Howdy folks. I joined this forum quite a few years ago looking for info. Well, I finally bit the bullet. Picked up a new Triumph Tiger. Looking forward to meeting some people and going on some rides. I've ridden 22 years out of my life. Grew up racing/riding motocross. Stepped away from bikes for a number of years. Then picked up a Harley which I have thoroughly enjoyed. ...but I always wanted to venture off the road. My old bones would be happy just doing simple rides (like Otay Truck trail or similiar) Getting used to the bike still... I did venture a ways up Otay Truck Trail. Bike came with street tires so i'm not going hauling thru the dirt anytime soon.

    Value of a 2010 Yamaha WR250r

    Thanks Mike. My experience with KBB (at least with cars) is that they are not realistic prices.

    KTM vs. DRZ + YZ

    Thanks again everyone. The comments on 60MPH DRZ are good to hear. On a side note...went to the SUpercross last night...always fun to watch. Dungey looks like he's the one to beat again this year. Cooper Webb is awesome....oh to be 20 again and ride like a madman.

    KTM vs. DRZ + YZ

    Thanks for the input guys. I had no plans to ride on the Freeway, I hate riding the freeway on my HD and avoid it if at all possible. I was more talking about backroad hwys...like 94, old HWY 80, 78 etc... Definitely all good food for thought...

    KTM vs. DRZ + YZ

    Yeah...that's about what I figured. Does this seem like a fair deal? http://sandiego.craigslist.org/esd/mcy/5396844095.html

    KTM vs. DRZ + YZ

    Thanks for the input and the welcome! I've seen the plated WR450s on CL...just worried about the DMV stripping the plate at some point. Seems to me anything past 2002or2004? is not legal anyway. As to the DRZ...I wouldn't be putting a lot of highway miles on it. But I figure locally to get to some of the riding areas, it can be 50-60 miles or more one way. I like the KTMs a lot...but worried about service costs etc. I do most of my own maintenance and repairs on my HD and cars...but some things, I don't have the knowhow.
  14. Wow...that is a gorgeous bike.

    KTM vs. DRZ + YZ

    Interesting thread. I'm new to the board and I've spent some time reading a lot of these threads. I've been lusting over a DP bike for a while. I grew up racing motocross and ripping around the Santa Monica MTNs on my 2-strokes. Or course today, doing that would land you in jail no doubt. I'm a Yamaha guy at heart... I'm leaning more toward the "motocross" style bike. I've read great things about the KLR...but fear it's just too heavy. I've warmed up the the DRZ after researching it. Love the WR250R...but I know it's not enough power for my portly butt. I'd love to have a legally plated WR450. I don't want an AZ plate. I'm wondering how hard it is to plate one...or keep the plate on one. I really like the KTMs...but they are $$$ and are pretty tall for my inseam. I can tippy toe the WR250r and the DRZ400. I like the Huskies too...but they're just a KTM painted white from what I hear. Some personal stats. I'm a "seasoned" dude in my 40's, my "radical" days are but a nice memory. I currently have a Harley softtail "bar hopper". I weigh 200...need to lose about 15. I'm 5,9 I'm not planning on doing any track riding. I'd be more into fire road style riding than technical or single-track. Who knows...that may change.
