Krazy ass dude

Glad youre ok. CNF is full of surprises should your concentration lapse for even a second. Remember....this aint Florida! This is fucking Southern California! Rocks, sand, mud, big drop offs and a little poison oak to make it really interesting!
Carry on soldier!

SNF vs CNF

SNF has its own beauty and technicalities. Problem is it takes 4 hours one way with no traffic. So how do you ride more often and get the same kind of fun? Stay local...There's another mtn in CNF and it is becoming a real Gem. Lots of good trails and no rocks. The night time crew needs to come my way in a couple months after I get everything plotted and maintained to ride able standards for night fun.

Keep pushing forward on our little training grounds we have here in our back yard. You get good on this stuff and you can ride anywhere!

Next week is SNF vacation time with the Grinch. We gonna ride lots o nighttime trails in the forest that doesn't suck!

Yes it did Jungle...
that was blamed on a flat front tire and attempting a grand airborne entrance down onto the peak overlook meeting Grinchy and the boys for the first time.
Was hoping to make a sterling first impression on the ateam!

Launched off the top and landed in a knee deep hole...

??

Are you working on your bike in the house? And is that your wife in the back ground letting you do it?
If it is you are the master. That is the one thing I was never able to pull off while married.

Now I just need to get another house without a wife so I can enjoy that convenience.

06exc400?

I have a chance to score a 400exc motor for about the same money as an oem clutch set up and a new stator for my 525.
I have always heard that the 400 was one of the best that ktm ever built,
so I am thinking about using the whole motor.
I know that it would rock the s/t, but i am somewhat concerned that the ex-road racers in the group may over power me when we do the asphalt blitzkrieg runs. (a few of yall are quite impressive in the twisties)

I also ride 20 minutes of 85 mph freeway to get to cnf.

what do yall think?

The four hunny motor won't cut it for CNF, give it to me, I'll give you a clutch.

meh. 525 is a better do it all machine.

handling the twistys is all about corner speed though. it wont make a difference whether youre on a 400 or a 525. a better line and less brakes will put you close or ahead of them. enduro's just arent set up to really rail through turns on asphalt. someone could be on either the the 400 or 525, and a better road rider could fly past them on a honda grom .

i think itd be better to just dial in the 525 you have than start over with a 400 motor. the weight difference is marginal, so i dont see what youd have to gain. im sure somebody else has a different opinion though.
