Heh I don't doubt it. Sounds about right, but was that a sponsored KTM vehicle (aka team KTM) or like an urban legend usually begins was that some dude that has his head up his arse enters un-sponsored with 16k miles on the top end of his 525?

K, if you leave on the ninth AND you have the room AND I wont be taking someone else's spot I might be able to have you trailer my gear/machine out there, ride the CBR out there with ya on the 10th, pack up the 530 and gear on the 10th camp that night with ya then make tracks early on the 11th (and have who ever is trailering haul my gear back to be recovered later) to be home in time for familial obligations. I will post on the other thread when I know for sure.

Do you have an enclosed trailer PCVance or an open trailer?

Mike, there is actually an article about it online, i don't have the link though. KTM wouldn't sponsor the team, just like they wouldn't sponsor the guys for the "long way round" movie. So a plumbing co. and others such as FMF and a couple more helped these guys along. They had 5 very experienced riders for the team, and a complete crew, tons of work to the bike, and so forth. Long story short, if the team didn't win, then it was all for nothing, sad story actually, because a small time plumber lost big on this one.
At least they tried though. Kawasaki didn't even enter a bike this year after last years 20 second loss.

Last Tues. I finally made the trip from Soaproot Saddle out through Sycamore. Nice! The creek crossing looked very familiar from some of the videos. Just alot less water. Sycamore is only about 5 min from my house so this is going to be my quick access to the dirt in the future.

JP thanks for the heads up on this.

Been gone the last couple of weeks raising hell with the Elk in CO. Ready to do some mud flinging. Let me know when you guys are going back out for the low elevation dirt.

Ben & I did some low alt riding on Friday before the storms rolled through........weather & conditions were perfect! We rode Ashlan, Maxon, Trimmer Springs & hit dirt at Big Creek rd. Explored some off shoots on Soaproot Saddle & then out to Sycamore Creek & the Indian Res for the way home.......

I got another MT60 mounted for that very purpose. Raymond = low elevation dirty fire road and lots a slab. I wanna drift on those roads this time around!

I was out there last spring - there are a few rolling hills that you can get airborne off of - aughta be a BLAST on the sumo kit.
