Thanks for the compliments, gents. It needs a little lovin, a shift lever, valve cover gasket and a few other odds and ends but she is a strong runner.

I plan on taking a motorcycle safety class to get my endorsement, I read a statistic that 80 something percent of motorcycle accidents involve self tought riders.

Those stats are probably pretty true. Glad you are doing the safe thing. They just beat into you how to be safe and what to do. Hell I had ridden on and off for a long long time and I still only got one point against me in the class during the riding exam (I think you are alloted 5 or 7 or something like that). I didn't take a turn fast enough was their complaint.

Here are a couple more pics for you guys. Thanks again for fixing my gallery Jay.




I'm kinda just getting into bikes, I had a CR 250R last year, but this KTM is kinda interesting, it kicks on the left and the drive is on the right. THe dude that I got it from said that 98 was the last year for that.. But its kinda cool because you can stand next to the bike and kick it. ;D
Oh and if ever get tired of the 400 I can always swap in the 640 ::)

You'll love bikes. In my youth I've owned a Honda 50 (1978), Yamaha IT 200 (bored out), Kawasaki KX 125 and a Honda XR 500. I'd like to get another one at some point. Looking at a Harley, but I'd also like to pick up an Enduro sometime too ;)

I looked at a couple XR400's before buying. Harley's are cool but expensive.
I see V Rod in your future. haha ;D

That's a hot bike, but not my preference. I'm a Deuce/Softail Custom/chopped Road King type of guy ;D

Nice Greg!

Another :thumbup: for the safety course. It's very easy, but worth every penny for sure!
