    Anza Borrego Route

    KTM 200 XC-W. Not low but can go slow if you want. I think 350thumper would approve of one of these though (my 1st bike)

    Anza Borrego Route

    Careful in Blair Valley Campground, the parking area can be very slippery and there could be squirrels running around! Been out of town the last few weekends and will be the next couple as well otherwise I'dve joined some of these rides. πŸ˜” (although I admit I was a bit relieved to be outta town during your gnarly enduro ride because I may have been dumb enough to try and join on my 200)
  4. That suuuuuuuuucks moto_rph! Glad you're in good spirits (or at least have good medicine 😁) Hope you heal up fully and quickly!
  5. I'm praying there will be more pictures and a ride report in the next week or so?

    DR650 Lost and Found Video

    I'll let you know when I do it. 😁 Not in any hurry to do it because at this point I don't really believe it needs it, my brakes are great off-road and plenty good on road. Was originally going to set up 2 DR's for South America and really just wanted the longevity/damage resistance. Also, slightly stronger brakes would be more important on a loaded bike, especially on pavement. If anybody has a DR650 and wants a brake line just lemme know.

    Borrego 150

    Wow I'm gonna remember that ride forever. Darren thanks again for showing me around out there, you are too kind and way too modest. I couldn't believe how effortless you made the sand look while I was fighting for my life out there. I only snapped a few pictures cause I was too busy catching my breath anytime we stopped. About 120 miles in and the sun was about to set when the desert reminded me I'm only a visitor. I will NEVER understand how you could ride so fast at night with a headlight pointed 45 degrees up into the air (and a bald front tire). He's not joking, he was literally riding by the light of his blinker. And I couldn't keep up, even with my brights on. Not even close. Thanks again for slowing down for me and giving me a little (big) tour of such a fascinating and beautiful region.

    DR650 Lost and Found Video

    Did someone recently buy a DR650? I have an extra (new) Galfer SS front brake line πŸ‘‚
  10. I'm horrible with trail names, I always want to see a map because half the time I don't know what trails people here are talking about. I believe they're talking about the highlighted route below. Very scenic and fun ride.
  11. I called SXS earlier and asked a few questions (pretty sure it was the owner who answered). He gave me a coupon code for 10% (Code is EB10) and I went ahead about bought a set. If I don't like 'em on the DR I'll throw them on the KTM for McCain. I have the Acerbis Uniko's on there now and a decent sized branch will fold the handguard right into the brake lever. I'll try to remember to post an update here once they show up.
  12. Great point, and great deal (40% off right now!). I have ridden a DR with those Tusk handguards quite a bit and I have no complaints. The only reason I like the Cycra's better is the bend right at the end of the handlebar, although that can potentially let branches sneak past.
  13. Thanks for all of the input fellas. I'm deciding between the SXS (why are they so expensive?) and the Cycra Ultra's most likely. Guess I'll get some fat bars first so I don't have to buy different mounts if I bend the stock steel bars. Really like the idea of being able to use the Moose elephant ears as a seat cushion or similar so I'll probably grab those too. 🍻Cheers
