I saw somebody riding a really nice XR650R with a dual Baja headlight. That's about it for big bikes. Tons of little 2-strokes and 450s.

It's a 140 Teraflex. I mounted it up specifically for that weekend so I can't really tell you much about it's life expectancy. I will be switching back to a different tire for mostly road duty. Just in case you're wondering - I combined it with a Michelin HP4 front. Fantastic grip in all soft off-road conditions.

Did the same ride on an XR650L this year, and must say I liked the big KTM better!

That was fun..........I really enjoy mine off road. The lack of rocks and roots is a lot different from around here. I hate "low bridges" though. These things don't lean at zero mph without just falling over. I was starting to feel bad for the guy on the silver KTM that fell on every log crossing. The plush 950 suspension actually works for this kind of riding.

I definitely enjoyed watching that and you certainly handled the big beast well out there!
