2002 KTM 640 LC4 Dual Sport for sale.  This bike is set up for the long haul but works just as well for a quick run to the corner store.  It has the Aqualine Safari 27 liter tank plus a Rotopax 3 gallon reserve tank w/mount on the CJ Designs rear tail rack.  The wheels are Woody’s built 17″ rear and 19″ front, tubeless, Excel rims w/heavy duty spokes.  Rubber is Continental TKC 80 front and rear and is about 75%.  Exhaust system has been ceramic coated, hand-guards are Enduro Engineering bark busters, heated grips, Shorai battery, windscreen, KTM aluminum skid plate, KTM comfort seat, Duke mirrors and quite a few other little touches to make this a great travel bike.  The bike is equipped with aluminum paniers and luggage rack.  The hard luggage removes easily and you can run soft luggage (Wolfman) on the same racks.

The motor has had a nearly complete rebuild – the water pump seal failed on the last big trip and had to be ridden back some distance in that condition so the cam shaft had some damage.  The camshaft and top end were replaced, all the lower end bearings were replaced and the piston rings were replaced.  As well as a new water pump and stator assy.  The bike has 13,500 miles on it and it has been out on a few rides since the rebuild and everything is in good working condition.

Whether you are riding over to your neighbors house or headed out on your next big adventure ride, this bike can handle it and you can pick it up for a song-and-a-dance!  The price was $3,995.00 and the owner has decided to reduce the price (he has more than that invested in the bike in the last 3 years) to facilitate a quick sale.  $3,000.00 takes it home!

Come take a look at the bike @ Petrie Motorsports, 950 County Rd. H, Elkhorn, WI, or call (262) 723-5518 or email or

Riders, this is important. We need you to comment on the proposed Sauk Prairie Recreation Area regarding including OHV (Dirt bikes, ATV, 4X4) vehicles into their Master Plan. We have opposition, so please keep your comments positive regarding no riding opportunities at the time in the Southern half of the state, the existing directive to the DNR to provide a riding park in the Southern half of the state (and it’s time to deliver their promise), how the clubs and enthusiasts have been trained to build and maintain sustainable trails, it’s a great family activity, etc.

Deadline is August 30!

Let’s not miss out on this opportunity. Clubs, dealers: please forward to your members/customers.

Subject: Action Required – Submit comments regarding proposed options for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area (former Badger Ammo plant).

To: ‘Distribution

We need to get the word out to OHM/DS clubs and riders so that they comment regarding the proposed options for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area.

We have until August 30th to get our comments in to the DNR regarding proposals for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area.

Last time we did a great job making our interests for motorized recreation known – especially the need for single track motorcycle trails.

Last time there were about 400 comments overall and we made up a good percentage of those. At the time of the public meeting on 31 July, 315 had already offered comments about the proposals. You can bet that this time around there will be many more comments that are not in favor of motorized recreation at the site. There are some organized efforts to promote options that do not allow for motorized recreation.


Get the word out to other riders and clubs and make sure that people act right away.

These surveys are often confusing so I have sorted through the issues to help people understand things a little better. Some of the background was in my previous e-mail.

This time comments are being taken via an on-line survey. The survey itself can be confusing to some as they spend a lot of time talking about vision statements and only a little time concentrating on the three options.

To help sort through this, I am offering some sample comments as they relate to each section of the survey. Please don’t use the same words, but try to cover the same points in your own words.

The notes are organized to align with the questionnaire.

Comments to consider for the on-line questionaire.

Page 1 of 4 asks for your zip code. It is a good idea to comment later in the survey that despite the distance from your home, you would be willing to travel to Sauk Prairie to enjoy motorized recreation (and to use the firing range).

Page 2 (Vision)
It would be useful to comment that this large tract of land is proximate to a large number of Wisconsin residents whose recreational interests are underserved in the region. The vision statement should include a statement that recognizes this as an opportunity to bring underserved recreational interests into more reasonable balance while providing opportunities that are within reasonable reach of where people live.

Page 3 (Ecological Management)
Ecological management is important but in this case it should not eliminate opportunities for outdoor recreation. It must be clear that recreation and ecological management do not exclude each other.

Page 3 (Recreation)
It must be clearly stated that recreation takes priority here. There are recreational interests that have not been adequately addressed in the region. Converting this large former industrial site to public land provides an important opportunity to address some of those shortfalls. There is already a large existing tract of parkland in place in this area. The priority here needs to be to address other recreational interests that include motorized recreation and a firearms range.

Page 3 (Cultural Resource Preservation)
Significant sites should be identified and preserved, but not to the extent that it unreasonably restricts recreational use of the land. The priority should be to maximize recreational use of the site while preserving significant cultural features.

Page 3 (Education and Interpretation)
As in cultural resource preservation, education and interpretive opportunities should be addressed without unreasonably restricting recreational use of the land.

Page 4 (Draft Conceptual Alternatives)
No Action Alternative
I do not like this alternative. It wastes a public resource that could otherwise be developed to provide recreation opportunities for a large number of residents that are proximate to this site. The property needs to be developed to maximize recreational opportunities.

Ecological Restoration Emphasis
The site had limited vehicle access and perceived remoteness when it was an industrial site. This is largely because the public was denied use of the land. Now that we can change that, we need to make use of this property by addressing shortfalls in recreation opportunities for a large number of people that live within range of the property. We already have adjoining land that offers traits of what is proposed under this option. Tying up this property under this option would severely limit the number of residents that would benefit from the resource. We need to maximize the recreational opportunities at the site, not unreasonably limit how it can be used.

Outdoor Recreation Emphasis
This proposal offers the best balance of uses for the property and maximizes the benefit of the property for the most users. The site has the potential to serve a large number of Wisconsin residents because of its proximity to population areas. It also has sufficient space to be able to accommodate some regionally underserved recreational interests like motorized recreation and target shooting. The size and layout of the property would allow a variety of recreational interests to be enjoyed without interference. This option also allows for many of the important features of the other options to be part of the program. The other two options are too restrictive. This option best addresses everyone’s interests. I am willing to travel a long distance to be able to participate in motorized recreation and target shooting at this site – especially since these interests are largely underserved in this part of the state.

Thank you for making our interests known. If we prevail we will have a nice riding opportunity that will serve a lot of people – especially since there are so few other options.


2009 KTM 690 Enduro w/Wolfman Luggage

2009 KTM 690 Enduro w/Wolfman Luggage

Sold 9/1/13

Reluctantly selling my personal bike, the Dual Sport Warehouse test bed bike!  This bike has only been used since 2012 so it is in very good condition and has under 7,500 miles on it.  Loaded with accessories:  Wolfman luggage racks and tail rack, Rotopax fuel pack mount, Wolfman Explorer Lite tank bag, Expedition Dry Saddle bags, Oberon clutch slave cylinder, Hammerhead shifter, Rox 2″ pivoting bar risers, fold-away mirrors, Cycra Pro-Bend hand guards, FMF Q4 spark arrestor silencer, K&N washable air filter, Rigid LED 1,900 lumen 6″ light bar, Koso heated grips, Heated gear power plug, Adjustable side stand w/large foot, CJD Billet fuel neck w/filter, CJD Foot peg extensions, GIT aluminum skid plate w/rear master cyl. coverage, Rally Raid rear brake lever, Renazco suede seat and new Dunlop 606 rear tire and Pirelli Rally front tire.

Plus all the things that make the 690 a cool bike in stock setup like a slipper clutch, fuel injection, lightweight (just over 300 lbs.), and 63 hp out of the box.  The 690 motor is a huge improvement from the 640 in terms of ride-ability, power and torque.  Much smoother thanks to a balance shaft, more rigid frame for better handling, and I average about 52 mpg in normal riding.  This is a great all-around bike, if you can only own one bike and need it to cover a lot of types of riding, this is the way to go.  I have put 17″ wheels on for street riding and on a previous 690 I set it up for ice riding in the winter.  It is light enough and small enough to handle single track and has enough power to rip down gravel roads or wide open desert and hang with the big dogs.

The selling price is $7,950.00 and you can reach me by email at or call (262)723-5518.  Sold 9/1/13
