I LOVE MY NEW BIKE!!! I rode all day Friday and Saturday and had a blast. I love that two-stroke power! It's definitely not an XR 200 and it kicked my butt but as soon as I get used to it I'll be able to rail on it. We rode both mx tracks and a little bit of trails. The suspension difference is incredible as is the power. I am definitely pleased with my purchase although the boys at BBR tell me I've gone to the dark side and should be on a 4-stroke. The force is not with me any more. :p
Asphalt is for sissies, speed kills and tickets don't pay.
Nope! Still grinnin'! I picked up new Michelins for it since the bike came with hard-terrain tires. I do my first post-break-in tuning this weekend: re-jet, tighten spokes, mount tires, change oil, etc. I have graphics for it but I think I will wait until after this weekend . . .
Sunday is my first race on the KTM! I am NOT looking forward to it since I am by no means comfortable on the bike yet but I already committed and am too stubborn to back out (an attitude which frequently earns me bruises). So I will be at the Muddy Butt in St. Maries, ID on Sunday, falling down. Oh well.
But I love the bike. You should see the looks I get--I have a Toyota pickup and the bike looks HUGE in the back.
