Oh yeah, Matt, it's 100+ pounds heavier than a KTM. That's plenty of reason NOT to buy one...
I miss mine... a lot. It was a good fit, and I pissed it away. Bah.

The downhill on Boyd Drive into Orosi is the best. I see that you ran two roads to the north into Orange Cove. The loop you have posted is a great one.



Carry on....

Another nice thing about Boyd, is that it can easily be combined with another area road (which I'll just leave nameless as there are too many to choose from, and not all are politically correct) to make a nifty little loop off of the 245. You can either miss out on ~4 miles of 245 in exchange for ~24 miles, or, just ride past whichever turn you come to first (depending on whether you're going up or down 245) and run the loop, coming back to 245 and getting to do the ~4 mile segment twice. Like THIS if you were headed up 245 (but then you'd also go up Boyd, which isn't as good as that last drop going down...) or THIS if you were headed down 245.
