I’ve repeated myself again. Swore I’d not go with another of the same bike……unless it were another YZ125. Here I am replacing my GPX TSE250R with a 2019 KTM 350EXC-F. I had intended on possibly going 450, but knew that for 3.5+ years, my 2013 350EXC-F did EVERYTHING for me, and did it so incredibly well. Lesson learned…..First, listen to the Mrs. If she says keep a bike….keep it. Second, don’t buy into a hype if it isn’t your reality. I did this with selling my first 350. I swore that 2T bikes were the end all be all of moto. My riding so far has shown me otherwise. So here I am.
I took a trip to Minnesota and bought this bike from Larsons Cycles. Absolutely thrilled with how they worked with me, pricing, and ease of it all. I’m sure it helped that it was a leftover machine, and winter is hitting the Midwest. There were few within a ~6 Hour drive, and most were substantially more. I was tempted to go for a 2020 model, but I was hesitant with the couple k$+ increase in price, and there were quite a few changes. I figured if the 2013 was good, surely the 2019 had to be just as good, if not better.
Below are links to any ongoing work I may be doing on the bike, as well as links to pictures\etc. Enjoy
