Wink Power is my friend!

I do have to say that under powered can get you into trouble. I've had Ol' Silver (KTM 640 E) in situations that needed that extra umph! Say a really steep, really bumpy uphill. On some club rides I have gone past bikes laying over because they didn't have power in this situation. It was so rough that you would have to jamb the gas on and off to keep you going straight, coupled that it was coming up out of a creek and continuing up a steep hill. Im 5'8" with a 28" inseam so stopping in a situation like this is not good. I don't know anything about the CDT but I will sacrifice a couple pounds for the extra power. You don't have to use it all but too many times I have been glad I had it. We're all different.
