I'll be down in Orange this weekend and was thinking and taking the KTM with me as I'll have a little time to play on Saturday afternoon. Anyone wanting to join up, give me a shout. I was going to try and find some good dirt. One likely suspect is Blakey Ridge.

Was it an inmate from here I saw on Park Street today at around 2 this afternoon on a WR? It looked like a 450, but I didn't think those are street legal. I'd be interested in hearing which WR it was, and if you had to get it street legal how much of a pain that really is. I like my Husky- a great deal in fact- but the WR's have always intrigued me.

By the way (if you do see this) what rear pressure are you running? It looked just about flat. :)

Sorry to have missed the April Moto night at BMMS...still wanting to make one of these to meet other dual sporters in the area.

There's a hare scrambles at Oak Grove in Nelson on Sunday. It's an AMA National HS. I'll be there with my KTM 450. 1st race in nearly 30 yrs.

Enjoy the evening, Grimmy

Hey, anybody recommend someone to install an electric brake controller on my Sprinter?

I have the Prodigy controller and nothing else.

I presume this is to control trailer brakes? Don't know about the Sprinter (or the specific make brake controller you've got), but I put one in my Silverado a few years back and it was a simple plug 'N play. Then again, I guess the manufacturer expects you to tow stuff with a Silverado, maybe not so with the Sprinter. Or I could simply be misreading your post completely!

Is that your final answer?

No, we're talking about the same thing, but the Sprinter doesn't have a plug for lights or anything at the moment. And I'm not willing to try it myself with this Mercedes born weird thing.

But thanks anyway! Ha...

Hey - thought I'd share this latest adventure with you all - wasn't on my bike - wings instead of wheels :) I stuck my gopro on the wing of the plane and it stayed!

I buzzed your house and mine on this flight! I tried to get them to show up in the video but it was too hard :) :)

That's what you get for buying foreign! Just bustin' your chops; it looks like a sweet machine. Sorry but I'm not much of an electrician, so all I can really provide is useless banter. I've never dealt with them, but what about Blueridge trailer sales in Ruckersville?

Yep. I'll probably take it to Blue Ridge. Rob is good and I've had a lot of work done there.

Thanks
