I was at Glen Helen yesterday for KTM's SX event. Rode 250 SX-F and 450 SX-F. Went down and hurt my right knee with 450.
MX is not for me. I didnt have fun anything close to riding my 990 on a regular dirt road. I like the steep hill climbs and the jumps but hated rutted turns. I was hoping that they would let me ride my 990 on the track, but they didnt.
I am sure I'd have more fun that a MX bike.

Bummer about your knee Ersin, maybe you should stick to the big bike wide road shit.

Lite bikes on difficult terrain is a very different kind of riding. Ask Todd about singletrack in the Piutes.

My arm is still F'd up and I didn't even fall.

You're a regular Bubba Stewart, Ersin! Those intro days are hard. You're on different bikes, different suspension- it's hard to isolate variables and develop your skills, especially if you're not acquainted with a motocross bike. I can’t help but feel that you’d benefit more from having an unrestricted day to yourself on a little bike,



so,




good luck. hahaha




Keep in touch. I've never ridden a 990.

Then you didn't ride the difficult terrain.....
I know no one who doesn't fall a few times on the "difficult" terrain.

I can say I know one person, but he made the place and is a living Legend.

He is, but I guarantee you, making that place, he's been down.
