Last night was epic once again! After 7 hours of riding I was beat. Glad I cut it short after our dinner feast. Got 2 blocks from the burrito stand and one of my hoses blew and hot coolant covered my leg. Had to push it home, checked it out this AM and found the hose cut through on a tab on the radiator.
Overall a beautiful nights ride!

I'm in the market for a 2004 or 2007 California plated KTM 450 or 525 EXC. Anyone local have one they're looking to sell or seen one offered at a fair price? Already browsed the Craigslist ads and have a 2007 450 on my short list. Price is ok, but debating if I should hold out for a 525.

There's no replacement for displacement. Hold off for a 525

Shop condition and price...450 or 525, it's only a 60cc difference. 2007 seems to be the best year model. Plated a must!

These are great bikes, my 04' 525 has 250 hours and 5500 miles and is running strong with no major issues.

Snow cap

There be snow on Santiago peak:

http://www.airsites2000.com/santiago_peak.htm

Road should be open later today. Or not.

On a positive note, because of all the rain, hunting next year should be a little better.

a tad off topic; Has anyone ever made moonshine? I am watching how to videos on youtube, and honestly, if I can rebuild a motor, how hard could it be to make some shine? If it works out, I might even bring some to a tasting at the summit.

That is all, carry on.
