Yep, that's the one. Did you work on it? The carbs seem right on, though the idle is a bit high (1700 rpm or so). I'd be interested in it's history.

I just rode it back from 3bros today- ~550 miles. Great bike.

3 bro's took the tank off for cleaning all the decals and they up the iddle so went is cold the idlle smooth quicker ,is wath they do i don't no wy .And yes I work on it since new ,the only mistups was the front wheel Thousend oaks ktm replace a front flat and forgot the tie the calipers , bike is good ,the last complete service was done 1600 miles ago , pm me and i get you all the details ,and check the front spokes every 4-5 k miles ,they sems to get loose after they relace the wheel with the new rim . Heavy dutty rear tube and regular front tube , new plugs,air and oil filter, oil (the bike is been running mobil 1 since 6k miles)new pads in the rear (1600)miles ago,replace all the brake and clutch fluid,inspect water pump,radiator flush,valve adjustment,tie all the nuts and bolts, synchronise and adjust float level,inspect brush in fuel pump (they have abouth 7-10k mile 0 life left).
That bike was always treath nice but rode it hard .That is all i can remember now I did the service in the middle o may 2009. The owner rode my 950 se and have to have 1 ,good luck and enjoy

Thanks for the info- it's nice to not have to do the radiator flush, valve adjustments, etc. again for a little while.

The bike still needs a new front rim- it's dinged up, but it doesn't wobble.

It doesn't look too beat up, aside from the tanks under the tank guards. I don't know how much 3 bros did to it. I don't worry about scratches too much, I know I'll just put more on it.

The trail starts out not to bad





Good views






Down at the bottom there is a creek bed that is crossed a couple times



Then things get tight and challenging and you leave the map






At a rest stop looking back at the trail that goes down to the creek and up the other side im taking the pic from




Lil' Dirty cooling off




Rode over to 16n01


Gets tight and woodsy




This is the trail marker


This trail runs parallel to the main road. It drops out on the road then hang a left toward middle creek camp ground and upper lake. Tell you hit this trail that has a steep start. I dont like steep down hills.





I promptly drop my bike for the first and only time of the day.


Cause Lil' Dirty's big jugs bounced off this rut while squeezing through.



Geting steeper..... we are headed down there! Its not real long but loose.




Safe at the bottom


This trail just loops around back to the main road but is some nice single track. Once back on the main road over to The Sled.



Ride the Sled to the bottom and it drops out in a huge creek bottom.



Ride the creek till you get to Middle Creek camp ground





Picnic on the grounds


TKC is getting worn


Then its ride home with a stop in Middle Town Mug Shots for a ice cold frape'
