    Assuming since you seem to primarily shoot MX/SX, you must not be a Katoom fan since their presence isn't too strong in those divisions? Or maybe its just a a failure to recognize OT humor again. :hsd:

    Nice Husq.....and shots. Touch dark IMO but colors/comp look ok.

    KTM's have their purpose, but in SX and MX here in the states, they don't do too well... :mamoru:

    :werd: They dont do well. Put Stewart or Reed on one and that might be a different story. :rofl: Hell, you could put them on an 86 250R and they'd still win. :bowdown:

    :werd: That bike looks fun.

    Not to get any more off topic than we already are, but those trail bikes are worthless. Granted they are cheap new, but resale will be nearly impossible (unless someone new to riding is looking for a beginner bike), and they are severely underpowered. Get yourself a 250F (MX style), and with a few changes......you'll have a badass woods bike.

    Now that is on the owner. I've got about 120+ hours on mine........and its a 2008 model. I'll be posting pics of it by the weekend after I get these new wheels on......other than the frame wear from my MX boots, you couldn't tell. :wavey:

    they usually have no indicator lights etc, bikes with them can be registered.
