Hello from Rural Georgia

Post by AmericanWalkabout » Mon May 16, 2016 4:19 am

Hi all,

I've been on the lookout for a nice 9-fiddy for a while now. One popped up not too far from home so after a long drive it's mine. A 2007 with less than 6500 miles that's been used nearly 100% on road. That's changed now. After installation of a set of Metzeler Karoo 3 tires it headed immediately for the woods behind my house (definite advantage of rural GA).

So far I'm impressed by the Karooo's for dual sporting. They spin (doesn't everything) in softer steeper dirt but other than that they did fine. Boy is that bike heavy when it's on it's side on a downhill slope. Broken clutch lever to show but nothing else (handguards were installed but I guess they were a little loose).

Anyway, this site looks great, full of resources, even if most of you speak with funny accents. Hoping to learn more about the new beast and start on the mods that make it a better dirt bike.

A little about me: Lived in USA about 20 years, originally from Australia. 3 bikes at present: 09 DRZ400SM with 21-18 wheels; '14 KTM 1190 Adv dressed for off-road; and now the '07 950SE-R.

Glad to be here, Drew (AmericanWalkabout).

PS. Yes, I'll post pics of the bike when I have time to work out the way to upload it.
