    Thanks! It came down to the 300RR, 390...or a Husky TE300...the 300RR won out. I really liked my GG, but couldn't wait for the '18's. Needed a big tank too for out here in Idaho, like to do 100+ mile loops, that and good for general exploring...tend to eat up a lot of fuel seeing if that dead end is really a dead end.. Want to do the Tour of Idaho too. http://advrider.com/index.php?thread...o-2013.907546/

    Real curious about the oil injection, be nice when I make my fuel stops. Still will have to carry oil, but not having to mix it, gonna be cool!

    Getting a chance to stretch its' legs a little.

    Pretty good right out of the box, some minor adjusting of the controls and that is about it.

    Burned about 4 gallons of gas, hardly used any oil...think I am going to like the oil injection.

    Shout out to the Beta brand - a friend of mine takes his to Baja for three years running now without a single issue. It's also his main dirt bike. I'm not sure which one it is. We do a 1k mile loop in Baja, and every year we've had KTM's fail, but so far the Beta has been solid.. (KTM = Kant Take Mexico)
