New 2015 KTM 500 EXC 6 days
Ive been riding all sorts of off road vehicles my whole life.
Predominantly quads and even three wheelers back when they were popular in the early/mid 90s.
Lately it's been Razrs and Raptors.
But I'd always had an eye out in 2 wheelers but due to lack of time (I got a job, married and had 3 kids) and not too many friends with 2 wheelers, the idea sat dormant.
Last week I decided to buy a new quad, seeing as the season is right around the corner.
In the Arab Gulf, outdoor season starts in mid September and all the way to mid April.
Temps hover around 70F (21C).
I was going for a raptor but then remembered that I'd wanted a 2 wheeler.
Took a ride down to the KTM boutique and the guy explained the basic two models: SXF and EXC.
The power lover in me automatically leaned towards the 450SXF obviously but thanks to the Internet and people like you who contribute on forums Iike these. I decided to try each bike out.
So I managed to try a motocross and an enduro.
I loved the power of the MX but because I plan on cruising more than doing jumps , I decided on the enduro.
When I went back to the KTM boutique, they were just pulling out 500 6 days.
Love at first sight ladies and gents.
I am 6 foot and weigh about 230lbs (185cm & 105kg), so the dealer swapped of the spring to one suitable for my extra small size
Was testing my GoPro on handlebar mount today
