Exclamation new to forum

my name is Bill I am 75 years old and I live in congress Arizona. I am an avid dirt bike rider and just purchased a 2016 klr650.

i ride twice a week in Arizona from October 1 till May 15 every year. Most often at the mms off 74. I have 40 miles of single track that I ride from my front porch.

my dirt bikes are a 2017 yz250fx and a 2002 ktm 200 exc and I have a vstrom 650 that I rode up castle creek to the Bradshaw grave on to Hozoni ranch and out thru Peoples Valley during a snow storm at night.

I am sorely tempted to not like someone who, and I quote, has ". . . 40 miles of single track that I ride from my front porch."

75 years old / riding dirt bikes / in the snow!!!

Only problem I see is you'll need to modify the KLR to accommodate for your balls.
