Great Forum - TWT!! Thanks for all the info!! Keep it coming!

Been riding KTM for several years. Enjoy every minute of it. Lower back is not so good anymore. Need to make the switch from off road to DP or cruising!

Welcome. I am sure many will recommend the VStrom to you. They will assimilate you.

Welcome to the site Kev!

I don't know about other folks, but I have found cruiser style bikes with the feet forward to be hard on my lower back. That is one of the reasons I like the DP bikes like the GSs, KTM 990's and other "adventure" bikes. They are also easy on the knees

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: New to Forum from Dallas area

Aloha nice to have another rider on board. What kind of KTM do you have? Must post pictures or suffer endless ribbing. When you get your enduro come join in on a pie run or meet and greet. Several every month don't be shy. Make sure to check out the off topic section in the forum area and all the fantastic info and such. KP

I have lower back issues as well. Cruisers don't do me well. Just like sitting in an office chair all day with bad posture. Kills my back. Stretching and excersises help. Find a good chiropractor and continue on the fun. I have a KTM300 as well as a V-strom. Love to have a 950 or a 990. Maybe someday after I get the wife a new ride.
