KTM Doug Posted February 14, 2013 Share Posted February 14, 2013 I stopped riding due to my back about 7 years ago. Actually it was at Torrey whatever in 2005 when I brought several friends there with me. Well I wrote my bucket list out recently, gonna be 70 in a couple years, and it turns out I only have one thing on it. That is to do a dual sport ride to Colorado and the Ouray area and also parts of Utah one more time with a young friend. So, in about a year we are planning to go. So, trying to loose weight and get into a little shape and hope the back will let me. Looking at bikes. New Honda CRF250L, not enough power. My friend says that when I get riding again, I was fast enough that I will be able to outride the suspension and power really fast. He forgets how slow I really was. My choice, KTM350 is a skycraper. I can't get back off the thing. So the WR250 Yamaha appears to be my choice. It is easily lowerable. I found a used one with 350 miles on it, so it is tempting. So my question, does anyone here have one and what do you think? Have you taken it to altitude where years ago, 350's were marginal? Inquiring minds want to know. Link to comment
