I need to take some lessons from you then Brian! I've seen what you guys can do with a RK and it's impressive. I too ride a RK. I ain't that good but I do consider myself a good rider.

Covi, our dog is named Dungey. Alessi is evil. Thought about heading over to Washougal last weekend, but The River seemed like more fun. We do have a race there in Sept (it's The Nuggets favorite track). Okay, back on the subject at hand.

Tweaked my KTM to make it street legal for a week-long Moab trip we did in May. New, powdercoated frame, a race light and a few other easily removed mods.




Here it is taking a dirt nap Moab:


Tonight I will finally get around to installing the new waterpump cover.



At least I had my Beta trials bike along for the remainder of the trip:

Must be a mid-life crisis...

What bike should a beginner get?

I am thinking about getting my license.

I know in the future I would prefer a cafe style bike... or a Bobber...

Wow, that's impossible to answer without more info. Regardless, the first thing I'd suggest is take a hands-on riding course. Not sure what state you are in, but here, we have a 3-day course (they provide bikes and helmets). At the end of the course, you've got some skills, knowledge and a license. After that you'll have a better idea what kind of riding, and bike, you need (yes, I said "need". Everyone needs a motorcycle, some just don't know it).

weeeelll, ...I would like a classic crotch rocket but to keep the speed gremlins under wraps, I am thinkin a low power bobber. Not sure I want a Harley (Used to work there) and I fit on a fatboy (but I am a little short -5'8" for the Nighttrain.... but also thinking a mid-60's BSA? (Or a Norton) but depends on $$ and I am not sure I want style over reliability? REGARDLESS.... thats AFTER I get some "seat time" on a good learner bike.

Looking at a 5 day (?) Class at the local tech school

Thanks!
