Is it KLR friendly? I don't like the "tip it over and die" type of trails.

dude.. must have just missed you.. i think i left around 2 or 230.. but i usually park on the other end of walker, down by lake cavanaugh entrance.. found a sweet fun trail today as well.. the I-5 trail, come around a corner and all of a sudden your riding on about a 20 foot slab of a boulder,

you in for tomorrow? hows the bike running?

Bike is faster than greased penguin shit! I just added my new rox risers

Ape Hangers???

Dude, did you play for the Sonics?

Edit to add a serious note. The KTMs (2t at least) are kind of notorious for short throttle cables. Please be berry berry sure that the cable housing does not have any tension when you are at full lock.

There was a guy on KTM Talk who had his housing get pulled out of the carb top which stuck his throttle open and got him a broken arm. I fit all of my KTMs with longer Honda CR250 cables so I can route the cable in front of the bars instead of behind the bars where it will foul my steering dampers.

I've got them on my Husky.

Sorry I won't be able to make the ride tomorrow. Probably take a short spin on the Husky in the PM.
