Maintenence / Re: Please help me make the 2020 Flint Hills Stampede

Tim at Motorcare in Lawrence is a very good independent mechanic and can certainly do the work you mention. As for licensing it I have no idea, fairly new to Kansas myself. I would suggest going to the highway patrol inspection station (there's one in Lawrence) or calling them and explaining about your XR and find out if it's possible to title and license it. I would bet it's not but I really don't know. You could always pick up a used dual sport that's already titled for this year's ride, they aren't very expensive. In addition to FB and craigslist check out bikefinds.
Good luck,
Jack

Maintenence / Please help me make the 2020 Flint Hills Stampede
« Last post by mgsADV on July 04, 2020, 03:50:49 PM »
Here is where Iím at.  Honestly Iíd like to purchase a KTM 390 Adventure or the Yamaha Tenere 700 but I am realistically 6 to 12 months away but would like to make to 2020 Flint Hills Stampede if possible. I have my Kansas Motorcycle endorsement but have mainly been single track trail riding from my youth....now at 50 years old ADV riding is where I am heading and I really didnít know about this group or forum until recently. I live in Olathe BTW.

Hereís where I need help.  I would like to street license my 2003 Honda XR 250 R in hopes that my son and/or wife could use it once I purchase my next bike.  I am looking for a motorcycle enthusiast/ mechanic to update this bike with tuned wheels, add new rubber, new brakes, fork seals, rear shock build and add the street legal kit and so on.  I have no title as I bought the bike second hand years ago and donít know if am just being a dreamer. I am looking for honesty on this subject. 

Lastly,  if this is not possible, is there anything like riders share or anyone with loaner bikes to make this happen this year. Eventually, I will have my ADV bike and will look for ways to pay it forward...even letting this XR be used for someone on the fence about ADV riding.  Currently, I am happy just to have found this forum and the FB page and knowing that touring Kansas is possible with like minded people.

Thanks in advance for any post or replies.

Have rescheduled the Stampede to Sept. 18-20. All other details remain in place as far as rendezvous point in Cottonwood Falls, etc.

Hopefully, we'll get better weather than what we're getting this weekend.

Best, Roger

Classifieds / Free-bars, seat foam and cover, hand guards
« Last post by drjack on June 18, 2020, 05:12:11 PM »
Stock KTM seat foam with little use and a new seat cover. No seat base included. Came off a 2010 450 XCW, should fit most KTMs.
Aluminum fatbars, have been cut down 3/4 inch on each end, don't know the bend but they're close to my new CR high bend. Have a new pad to fit these.
Aluminum full wrap hand guards with mounting hardware, came off above fatbars. Do not have hand shields for these.
All free if you pick up in Lawrence.
