I started riding off road at 45 last April, first bike was a 91 KLR 250. First event was this years Hancock Quarry run where kickstarting the KLR after my many mishaps kicked my ass.
I bought a KTM 450 EXC 2 weeks later.
I Did a desert ride in Vegas 8/05 with KTM factory rider Kellon Walch in the Nelson Hills.
We did the TCMC dual sport last week and we are going to the Meteor dual sport tommorow ( both in southern NJ.)
5 of us are going to Vegas in January for a weekend of riding.
I'm looking foward to trying an enduro next year.
