Third Weekend of September

Recommended Posts

Hah, hah!!! I found you bastards!!!  Kind of like my parents when i was young, you keep moving hoping i dont find you?

 

anyways, Sunday was a fun dirt day!  Took the KTM out to see if it still ran (carbs instead of fuel injection makes for fun times).  Turns out, once you get some good fuel going thru it, its alright!

North of home is an area known as Carizzo Plains.  The little San Andreas fault runs thru it, but we dont worry about them trifles.   The main road thru is a mixture of asphalt and gravel, but the best part are the offshoot roads.  We probably spent about 3 hours putzing around in there, dropping bikes, etc.  Great time had by all, as we prep for a trip to Moab, UT in October.

No.....the domain changed to motorcycleriders.net 5 months ago and you kept getting redirected here over that period.

So change your bookmark to www.motorcycleriders.net

Good to see  you out on the KTM again, one of the best bikes EVER made  :littleguy:

welllll, maybe.  🙂     It is also the one bike that needed a full rebuild at 40k miles, to the tune of 80% of the bike value.  Had i not got it mostly free from my brother, i would probably have thrown it in the ocean.   It sure feels good off road, tho!.  Not much for long distance riding.  I took my 06 to Alaska in 2009, for about 5000 miles, and my butt hurt for months afterwards.
