From talking to some of the pro's last year, they shared that they only have 2 gears in their transmissions, so not a lot of shifting there either.
1996 KTM 620 RXC - Keeping my left leg in shape.
2007 KTM 250 XC - Mmmm. Faaassst

Since you only live once, why not live every day as if it were your last!
