last weekend - Canada - 2 950's

The Helmut cam is worn by a 650 klr rider but there should be 2 950's in there.

Night and Day difference.

A nobby Vs a paddle in the sand dunes is like, a street slick Vs a nobby in the dirt.

Just strap one on the back, and when you hit the sand switch out the Karoo for the paddle. Just kidding. I dont know what the Sahara is like (maybe some day), but I imagine there are sections of hard pack and sections of sand, and sections of DUNES. A paddle tire is only usefull in sand-DUNE applications (or hill climb event). In other words, it is a tire built for a specific purpose (screw'n off) and would not be good for any type of travel'n. Have a gooood trip, LUCKY.

You know your sand dunes. I took the "Bone" road from Soda Spr. to Idaho Falls to get there. That was a fun route.

Just took the Bone road yesterday

I'm impressed with the forest area there. The whole Carabou forest is a riot!!!

Laugh video cheat

You can see a very brief clip of my 950....

Have a look at 'Long Way Round', Ewan MacGregor and Charlie Boormans' epic serialised adventure ride. Just before they get told thay can't have KTMs for free and Charlie gets a childish strop on, they take a couple of KTMs for a test ride.

The 950 you see them falling of is now mine (only one careful owner, full service history etc - the KTM UK factory demonstrator might not have been the bargain it looked!)

Hey, how 'bout some photos, or better yet a recent video?
