Yeah,
And for the same reason, you see KTM's all over the mountains....KTM is King of The Mountain or King Trail Machine.

Naw... Even better thrashed it up at byrons place. Hah. Good times. Even found the end of the front fork stroke. Didnt take much compared to what the 530 will suck up but still impressive for me.

Chip woop woop, play riding rocks! I never had a heart for racing - lack the drive. I am content to sit back all day smelling the pretty flowera and occasionally making the guy in front of me nervous about how close to his rear whell I am.

I read somewhere doing research (don't ask why) but 265mm fork swap or springs might help cure that bottoming out!

Also, I hear if you don't bottom out then you're not using all the travel in the suspension so I guess that means you're doing it right?

Could have been because of 2 up?

Check out the "Halls of Wisdom"?

Later!

Tom how are you doing!? I have one friend looking at bikes, I'll see if he's interested. If it goes to donation do you think it would qualify for that one race bike museum here in town? Maybe they'll buy it?

Hope all is well!

Decided to do some bike camping this weekend, staying at a somewhat low elevation (4,500ft) for Saturday night only (Oak Flat campground). Leaving Sat morning to head there & set up camp then figure out riding for the day. If anyone wants to join me, let me know.....if anyone wants to ride on Sunday, you know where to find me Spot marked on below map is the turn off into the campground, the campground rd is not shown on the map.

PV Fantastic!

JP Looks like a great spot! I have a baby shower to go to Sat .. and Sunday we're doing some 4x4. I don't know where it is that we're going, but I'm sure Rob has picked a route with the purpose of totally destroying my Jeep!

Have fun guys!
