The Bikes I’m interested in, at...

The Bikes I’m interested in, at this moment.

You guys have noticed I’ve been posting about cars and trucks and such a lot more lately.  Probably it’s because I love cars and trucks – always have.  My first words were – and I’m not kidding here – “Vooma-Vooma”.  Those might not be words according to Webster’s, but they were my first words.   […]

Winter Ride with Moose Ears.

Winter Ride with Moose Ears.

Okay, so the KTM is so far doing just fine in the snow. Save for the small “Endurance” LCD dash/trip computer… which died on me. So I have no speedo or Odometer… which is no big deal. The bike handles as I expected it too in the snow, or even a little better.  This is […]

KTM 990’s

KTM 990’s

I keep going back and forth between the KTM 990 Supermoto and the 990 Adventure R models.  It’s not like I have any hard on for KTM, as I had one and blew the engine the first month I had it.  Since I’ve sold the ZX-11, I am without a Long Range bike and this […]

Monday’s Motorcycle: KTM Cafe

Monday’s Motorcycle: KTM Cafe

I don’t know exactly what this is… But it’s a KTM dirt bike of some sort, rebuilt as Cafe Racer.   I don’t know why I find this so appealing.  I really don’t.  I love Cafe bikes, but mostly those built on big brutal and thuggish engines.  Not angry little Singles.    I bet this […]

Beers Harley Davidson

Beers Harley Davidson

So I took my Like New, Awesome Running KTM in to Beers to get an oil leak sorted out. As they are also the local KTM, Honda, and Zuki dealers. Estimate was 1.5 hours labor and a 5 dollar gasket.  So about 150 bucks.  No Big Deal.  Two weeks later I get the call that […]

Sunday Ride

Sunday Ride

Hit Red Cloud Loop, just North of Vernal.  I was looking for an alleged Ghost Town that is up there someplace.  I didn’t find it, but I think I know where it is now, and will hit it next weekend. I didn’t get to do a lot of pictures because I was White Knuckling the […]

KTM To Work

KTM To Work

Do to the requirement of attending our monthly team meeting at the Range today, I opted to ride the KTM.  The Range is not Sport Bike Friendly.  Not at all.  It’s not even Car Friendly.  It’s 4X4 friendly for sure… So the KTM went to work with me. I like it.  Due to the use […]

Horrifying

Horrifying

Went for a ride on the KTM… this time I went and hit dirt.  About five miles on sand, dirt, gravel, and rocks. I have to be honest, this was absolutely horrifying.  It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done.  No, seriously… out of everything I’ve ever done – this was the scariest.  I got […]

I got my Enduro Bike

I got my Enduro Bike

I’ve wanted an Enduro for years.  And I’ve wanted a second bike to add to the Ogre Ranch Stables.  Finally brought it home.  It’s a KTM 525 MXC… I’ve probably mentioned it before.  Well, the deal is done and the bike is mine now. The bike is in brand new – seriously, like it’s never […]

Thinking about an Enduro

Thinking about an Enduro

As a second bike.  Not going to give up my Street ride.  I’m broke, so no need to send me links or offers for Enduro bikes…  It’s going to be some time before I’m ready to get serious.  But a friend offered to let me test ride his KTM 525 MXC freaking monster of an […]
